Marwa was killed because of who she was (click here). She was brutally murdered because she was a Muslim. She was hated so much because she covered herself as Muslim women should be.
Ironicaly, head scarves were seen as symbol of women opression in the west. Yet she was brutally murdered by a member of a society who supposed to liberate people like her. The poor women was 3 months pregnant. She was stabbed 18 times by the very terrorist who harrased her months before. To compound the tragedy it was her husband that was shot by the court bailif because they thought the husband was the attacker and the bloody white male was actually trying to save her. Isn't that ethnic profiling already?. All men with beard must be Al Qeda or something. Should we call the man a christian extremist? white terorrist, yes?. No, our supposed liberators dont like that.
Marwa is a symbol of Europe's fear. They fear her because she did not want to be liberated. She want to be 'opressed' under the bloody hijab and head scarves. A nation that proud of their tolerance and freedom of expression suddenly finds no words of comfort to offer for this incident.
The silence is deafening. It makes me pening!
Alfatihah buat Marwa.
