Your typical honor killing involves a father slaughtering his daughter because she is dating a non-Muslim. Or perhaps the mother or the brother is involved in the massacre. Rabia Sarwar broke the mold with her attack on her husband, Sheikh Naseem:
A soft-spoken Muslim woman tried to slit her Staten Island husband’s throat as he slept – enraged that he made her eat pork and wear sexy skirts, officials said.
“It’s time for you to die!” screamed Rabia Sarwar as she pounced on hubby Sheikh Naseem, sources said.
He woke early Wednesday to find her straddling his chest and hacking at his neck with a knife.
The burly 41-year-old, a teacher at Susan Wagner High School, overpowered the pretty petite Sarwar, 37, and grabbed the weapon.
The two have only been together for five months. For Nasseem, it was his third try after his first two marriages failed. The Pakistani-born Naseem was not a practicing Muslim but sought a traditional wife; their pairing was arranged through family friends.
This should be an interesting trial. I understand her point, but why not divorce the man? And when are you ever going to see a title like this: Muslim woman held in slay try of husband; he made her wear sexy skirts and eat pork.
