“Religion of Peace”: Muslim Dad Kills Women of Family for Being “Too Western”

By Debbie Schlussel
Mohammed Riaz–guess what religion?–murdered his wife and four daughters, last Halloween, because he was upset that they were becoming “too Western.”
This is the second Muslim arson honor killing of the women in a British Muslim family I’ve written about in the last year. The first, by dentist Hussain Ahmed, last September, is detailed here.
This latest documented honor-killing by a Muslim was done right around the time Riaz’s family was celebrating the Muslim holiday, Eid al-Fitr. Interesting how they celebrate the holidays . . . with a sacrifice of all the women in an entire family. Surprise, surprise–he spared his son.

More details:

A father killed his wife and four daughters in their sleep because he could not bear them adopting a more westernised lifestyle, an inquest heard yesterday.
Mohammed Riaz, 49, found it abhorrent that his eldest daughter wanted to be a fashion designer, and that she and her sisters were likely to reject the Muslim tradition of arranged marriages.
On Hallowe’en last year he sprayed petrol throughout their terraced home in Accrington, Lancs, and set it alight.
Caneze Riaz, 39, woke and tried to protect her three-year-old child, Hannah, who was sleeping with her, but was overcome by fumes. Her other daughters, Sayrah, 16, Sophia, 13, and Alisha, 10, died elsewhere in the house.
Riaz, who had spent the evening drinking, set himself on fire and died two days later. . . .
Riaz, who had spent all but the last 17 years of his life in the North West Frontier region of Pakistan, met his Anglo-Pakistani wife when her father sent her to the sub-continent to find a husband.
After an arranged marriage, she developed a career as a community leader in Accrington while he, handicapped by a lack of English, took on a series of low-paid jobs.
After Mrs Riaz’s father died she “suddenly felt less beholden to Mohammed”, a friend said. “She started to develop her own circle of friends and allowed the girls to express themselves in a more western way.”
She began to work with women who felt suppressed by Asian culture and many saw her as a role model for young Asian women.

“A father killed his wife and four daughters in their sleep because he could not bear them adopting a more westernised lifestyle…”
Then why the hell did he emigrate to the UK if he wants his family to live like cave men? These barbarians PROVE that they don’t want to assimilate and adapt to their adopted country’s traditions and culture – contrary to the lie the LIBERALS always spew.
As Debbie pointed out, he murdered his wife and kids but spared his son. I’m sure his son was veering “westward”, as well, but in islam, women are treated like chattel and are not accorder the same rights as males – that’s because islam is a backward, violent, death cult invented by a sadistic madman.

As i wrote on today’s blog, THIS is the anniversary of Malcolm X’s assassination.
Of course, MOST OF YOUR READERS probably consider Malcolm one of the first Islamic terrorists instead of noting how he CHANGED as a man!!!
Both the Nation of Islam AND the Ku Klux Klan will deny that Malcolm X had drifted away from the *white man is the devil* theology he espoused as a minister for the NOI, and both LACK the imagination to see that if he didn’t become a supporter of Israel after the Yom Kippor war in 1973, the vicious Palestinian slaying of Tali Hatuel and her daughters would surely have converted him.
There ARE peaceful Muslims NOT living by the sword of Islam…Barak Obama comes to mind…but forgotten is the genocide committed in the name of Jesus—where’s a Hare Krishna when you need one???

Where are the Feminutz? Women are being oppressed and murdered by Islamic psychos and the Left is silent. In Iran, teenage girls are being hanged for the crime of “sex without marraige.” Gays have been executed, too. If these human rights violations were being perpetrated by Christians, the Left would be foaming at the mouth and demonstrating in the streets. Insanely tolerant Liberals believe in, “Live and Let Live.” Too many Muslims believe in, “Live and Let Die.”

I wonder if the liberal dopes in this country can connect the dots on this one. Muslims find western culture so abhorent (unless they are within a few days of flying a plane into a building–then they go out, get drunk, gamble, and copulate like a bunch of rabbits on Viagra), they are willing to wipe out their own family members whom they believe are becoming too western. Hmmmmm . . . this must mean they find western culture to be a threat to their whacked out religion and beliefs. Sweet Jesus, if they are willing to kill their own family members over being too western, I wonder what their dreams are for us Christian and Jews who are the western culture? Can any of you dumbass tree-hugging, animal-loving, peaceniks figure out the answer to that?

It is unfortunate that Muslim woman and girls had to suffer the results of someone who was eligible for the “Darwin Award” and won.
It is difficult for those who are part of the Judeo-Christian-Western-Humanistic traditions to fathom the inherent stupidity of those who see the “solution” to growing out of old, rigid cultures in murder and suicide. It is what makes literal Islam both violent and doomed to failure. Ultimately, its basic inhumanity will lead to its violent end at the hands of those who cannot be tolerant enough to tolerate its intolerance.

Not sure if the first attempt at commenting in your site worked, so will paraphrase.
It is unfortunate that the Muslim woman and girls had to suffer as a results of the candidate for the “Darwin Awards” who won.
Those in the Judeo-Christian-Humanistic-Western traditions simply cannot understand someone who believes that the “solution” to cultural adaptation is murder and suicide.
The inherent nature of literal Islam is one of violence, intolerance, and misogyny. The ultimate destruction of this cancer on humanity will come when those who insist on tolerance can no longer tolerate the rigid intolerance of literal Islamists.

Hey, four less terrorists, right?

KOAJaps, why would you say something stupid like that? Was there any indication those little girls and their mother were buying into the jihadist crap their father was probably spewing? I would say indicators were just the opposite. Seems to me that douchebag daddy was seeing that his family wasn’t down for strapping on bombs and were probably becoming vocal in their condemnation of what they were seeing and hearing. I believe that any Muslim who takes the courageous step of turning his/her back on, and denouncing that perverted religion is more powerful than any number of bombs.

AynaydaPizaqvick: how is islam going to fail? The entire western world’s leadership is running around like gelded chickens. Our president will fight a nation’s corrupt leadership or confirmed terrorists, but tiptoes around everyone in between. Then he has the audacity to call it a “religion of peace”. That’s a bunch of bs.
We’re not allowed to even discuss it without being labeled racist hatemongers. The left’s silence on this issue is both bizarre and hypocritical. They should be on the front lines fighting against islamic law, but instead they’re a muslim’s best friend… until that muslim decides to terrorize them. Then they blame it on conservatives.
