En 16 år gammel jente i Canada ble mandag drept av faren fordi hun nektet å bære hijab.
Aqsa Parvez likte seg best i moderne klær, men faren insisterte på at hun skulle dekke seg til.

The story was on the front pages of Canadian newspapers on Tuesday. The newspapers quoted friends and schoolmates of the victim as saying she argued with her father over wearing a hijab, the traditional head scarf worn by Muslim females.

Photos of the teen retrieved from a social networking Web site show her in Western dress with her long dark hair loose.

«She was always scared of her dad, she was always scared of her brother,» the Toronto Star quoted a classmate as saying.

Others were quoted as saying the girl wore traditional Muslim dress when leaving the house in the morning, but would change into other clothes in school washrooms
