Mutilation and murder of wife in London street
(Note: We learn from other news accounts, linked by readers below, that the woman was a Sikh. It appears that Sikhs also practice honor killing including severing of the hand.)
From the reported facts it’s very likely that the crime was a Muslim honor killing in which a husband with the help of five other men killed his wife. But the Breitbart news service account says nothing about Islam and nothing about honor killing. It tells us zero about the ethnicity of the victim and her killers, other than what can be gleaned from the victim’s name (which could possibly be Hindu rather than Muslim). Based on what the story actually tells us about the crime, Breitbart would implicitly have us believe that somehow, by some unknown and unknowable concatenation, British husbands, aided by their male friends and relatives, have begun chopping their wives’ hands off in London streets then striking them a blow on the head and leaving them to die. It’s all a mystery how such savage violence appeared in England. It’s beyond us. And it must remain beyond us, because it is wicked and immoral to think that people’s ethnicity, race, and religion matter. People should be seen only as individuals, not as members of any group.
I’ve said that liberal society is a factory for the production of dead young white women. But liberal society is also a factory for the production of dead young Muslim (and perhaps Sikh) women. The West invites people from Muslim societies into the West; Muslim women, living in the West, naturally begin behaving in Western ways; and their male relatives kill them for behaving in Western ways. Wouldn’t it be better, not just for us, but for them, if we left them where they were?
