En kyss før døden

Hans Rustad

Shamima Akh­tar skulle på en til­stel­ning på job­ben. Hun sa det bare arbei­det jen­ter der. Da søsk­nene så henne gi et kyss på kin­net til en engelsk mann ble de rasende. Shamima fikk skå­ret av seg håret og holdt fanget.

De tre søsk­nene står nå for retten.

Man und­res når man leser his­to­rien om hvilke fore­stil­lin­ger fami­lien gjør seg om sine omgi­vel­ser. Hvor­dan kan de tro de kan bo i et sam­funn der det å omgås ikke-muslimske menn utset­ter dem for en slags smitte?

Shamima was bund­led into a car by sis­ters Nadiya, 25, Nazira, 29, and brot­her Kayum Mohammed-Abdul, 24, out­side a Basings­toke res­tau­rant when they saw her kis­sing work colle­ague Gary Pain on April 1 last year.
The jury heard how an “extremely aggres­sive and threate­ning” Mohammed-Abdul grab­bed Mr Pain by the neck as Miss Akh­tar was “firmly escorted” to the car and thrown in.
The car was dri­ven back to the family home in Basings­toke, Hants, where it’s alleged she was drag­ged onto the sofa, cal­led a whore and a pro­sti­tute and then had her waist-length hair cut to her neck by her two older sis­ters.
The jury heard how Shamima was pun­ched by her sis­ter Nadiya and over­heard her brot­her on the phone, say­ing “Get the gun, I need the boys tonight.“
He is then alleged to have pre­sented his sis­ter with two kni­ves and a ham­mer and asked her to “pick one to be used” on her and “one to be used on her lover boy”, Win­ches­ter Crown Court heard.

Miss Akh­tar came from a strict Isla­mic family and was con­trolled by her siblings, but she con­side­red her­self Western­ised, the court heard.
She had star­ted to work at Argos and got per­mis­sion from her family to cele­brate her 18th birth­day with work colle­agues, on the night of the alleged assault, tel­ling her family that her work­ma­tes were all female.
As her siblings arrived to pick her up they spot­ted her sha­ring a kiss with colle­ague Mr Pain.
Shamima claims she was impri­so­ned for approxi­mately 12 hours and cal­led the police as soon as her brot­her and eldest sis­ter had left the house.
All three defen­dants deny kid­nap­ping her on April 1 last year as well as actual bodily harm and false impri­son­ment.
Mohammed-Abdul denies assaul­ting Mr Pain and the two sis­ters also ple­a­ded not guilty to assaul­ting Shamima.
The case continues.
