Edmonton’s honour killing cowardice

Let’s get one key thing straight: If there had been no honour killings against Muslim girls in Canada in the first place, this wouldn’t be happening.

In 2013 a group called the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) paid for five ads on Edmonton buses that read “Is Your Family Threatening You? Is There a Fatwa on Your Head?”

Then it showed the photos of deceased Canadian girls above the line “Muslim Girls Honor Killed by Their Families.”

The ad says “We can help” and directs the reader to FightforFreedom.us.

Yet within 48 hours of the ads going up, they were taken down. The city received, in their own words, a “handful of complaints.”
