She didn’t even make it past one night. Hoda Salem was brutally stabbed to death for not being able to convince her misogynist, neanderthal husband that she was indeed a virgin.
“An Egyptian man has been charged with fatally stabbing his wife on their wedding night when he decided she was not a virgin. Ibrahim Ali and Hoda Salem were married in the village of Al-Quba in the Nile Delta. On their wedding night, residents heard Salem screaming and found her on the floor, al-Arabiya reported. Salem said that her husband had stabbed her. She died at the hospital.”
Murder of spouses for whatever reason is not an uncommon tragic occurrence, and will forever be a part of our societies. The criminalization of these murders as well as their successful prosecution, along with the negative stigmatization that accompanies such heinous crimes, is the only way Islamic honour murders will be effectively reduced.
