I woke up today and was shocked to learn about the death of Ontario Teenager Aqsa Parvez. Read about it here. I was going to write a commentary on this whole situation but I found one here on WordPress that is pretty much bang on what I had in mind. It can be found at The Discourses of a Highly Indebted Student. I do, however, want to say this: We are living peacefully in Canada. We are a vital part of Canadian society. Criminal incidents that are related to religion harm all of us, not only Muslims but all Canadians. Given the state of Islam today, these cases make it harder for us to be Muslims in our own countries. I wish people that purported these crimes actually study Islam wholey and not just selectively learn bits and pieces. But now, a daughter is dead, a friend is lost, a family is ruined forever. This young girl will never be a daughter ever again. She will never be a wife. She will never be a mother. She will never be a grandmother. She will never be able to contribute her inherent good to her community, her society, her country.
