Afghan Family Convicted of Honour Killings in Canada
Three members of an Afghan immigrant have been convicted of first
degree murder and sentenced to life in prison after the “honour killings” of four female in Canada. Mohammed Shafia’s three daughters and his first wife from a polygamous marriage were found dead in their car in the Rideau
Canal in the summer of 2009. In addition to damage on the family’s vehicles, wiretapped conversations
were used as evidence to convict Shafia, his second wife Tooba, and their 21-year-old son, Hamed. The
Westernized teens were behaving in ways that “dishonoured” the family.
The judge called the crimes “despicable” after announcing the verdict.
The Shafia trial had gained international attention, especially in the Muslim community. During the three
month trial, over 100 Islamic leaders across Canada spoke out against honour killings and signed a
National Call to Eradicate Domestic Violence.
