It is against Islamic law, of course, for a Muslim woman to marry a non-Muslim man. From the BBC, with thanks to Singh:
Two men have been jailed for life for killing a man wrongly targeted in a dispute between Sikhs and Muslims.
Shimraz Kahn, 35, got a minimum of 18 years for the murder of Major Singh Gill at his West Midlands shop. Waheed Akhtar, 22, was given 15 years.
The men believed Mr Gill’s Sikh son was in a relationship with a young Muslim woman, Stafford Crown Court was told.
Two others were found not guilty. Two further suspects are believed to have fled to Pakistan….
Prosecutor Anthony Barker, QC said Mr Gill was the victim of a deliberate and planned killing.
“Some men had clubs, iron bars and hockey sticks and inside the shopkeeper was clubbed to death,” he said.
“Yet the people who killed him had set out to kill someone else.
“They killed a perfectly innocent man who had done absolutely nothing.”
He said the story behind the killing was complicated but involved the relationship of a Sikh man and a Muslim woman.
