Muhammad Khan during a police interview
Because of the multiculturalist anti-assimilation imperative, we will see more and more of stories like these: a father in Toronto killed his five-year-old daughter because she was the child of his first wife and another man. Pakistani elders, operating according to Islamic law, awarded him custody of the child, but evidently he believed that only killing her could restore his honor.
What the jurors in the Farah Khan murder trial know about the deceased little girl is that she was a five-year-old with a heart-shaped face; that she was a pupil in that grade with the deliciously oxymoronic name — senior kindergarten — and that she had made remarkable progress in a few short months in a country where virtually everything was new to her.
Yesterday, these same jurors who have in the main heard the child described only in properly gentle terms, listened to the harsh voice of her father, Muhammad Arsal Khan, refer to her as “that useless child,” “bastard offspring” and “child of a dog.”
