    A New York woman allegedly tried to slit her husband's throat because she said he wasn't the devout Muslim she thought she married five months ago, the Staten Island Advance reported.

    Rabia Sarwar told authorities in a four-page written confession that she tried her "best to cut his throat," but that her husband, Sheikh Naseem, woke up and took the knife from her.

    Agreed!

    And to think some would have us believe that Christianity is no more peaceful. I've yet to read about a pastor telling his congregation to bomb and kill the unbelievers.

    Oh no, that would be considered "hate speech." It's okay for the Muslims to do it, though, because it's just "their religion.":tonofbricks:

    "According to Ms. Sarwar’s attorney, Joseph Licitra, Naseem “was a cruel person, he preyed on her.”

    The day before the incident, “he literally threatened to have her parents mutilated,” Licitra said.

    ...

    "He made her do stuff that she didn't like to do — eating pork, drinking alcohol, wearing short clothes. She did all of that to make him happy," the source said."


    Sounds like she married a real winner there. :rolleyes:

    No doubt it was religiously motivated

    May have been religiously motivated. Regardless of any religion involved or not involved her husband doesn't exactly come across as being an outstanding spouse.

    Let me see. Someone who is charged with attempted murder claims mistreatment by the one they attempted to kill. I would need some corroborating evidence before I would believe it. Also, if her allegations are true, she should have divorced the man, not murder him.

    Well, you know the old joke among folks who don't like the divorce option:

    Question to woman: "Have you ever thought about divorcing your husband?"

    Woman's answer: "Divorce? No. Murder. Yes."

    Maybe this woman took this joke seriously. It might have lost something in the translation to her.

    Hmmmm, I may need to sleep with one eye open.

    That's funny, Ken.

    Is this why James Bond sleeps with a gun under is pillow?

    Everyone knows it's not okay to kill your spouse if they're being cruel to you. Cut off their privates, yes, but kill, no.

    Since the wife claims that she was motivated by her belief that her husband was not a devout Muslim shouldn't hate crime charges attach?
