Muslim Man Boils Wife Alive For This One Thing

A Muslim man, 34, was quite angry with his bride to be. He finally found a way to exact his revenge in a possible honor killing.

On May 13, a young woman was nearly another casualty of Islamic honor killing. The Indian Express reports that a 21-year-old woman was almost boiled to death after her 34-year-old husband and in-laws allegedly poured a large vat of boiling water on her because she failed to bring them a large enough dowry.

Azad and Rehana Sheikh had been married for 5 years, when he was 29 and she was just 16. The family received $222 for marrying their son to the girl instead of the $741 they demanded. Police confirmed that while Rehana was cooking breakfast, Azad and his parents began quarreling with her once again over the dowry. Police said, "The husband began beating her. In a fit of rage, he took a pot of boiling water and poured it on to his wife."

Neighbors rushed to the house seeing the woman so badly burned it was difficult to identify her. It seemed her skin was bubbling and melting off of her body. The hospital stated that she suffered 70 percent burns on her body and her condition was critical.

Her brother, Arajul Sheikh, said "Since her marriage, her husband and in-laws would routinely torture her, they’d beat her and demand that she bring money. At the time of the marriage, she had been given Rs 15,000, gold ornaments and other valuables. But Azad demanded more."

Police are still searching for Azad and the family members involved in Rehana’s injuries, and they have responded to a complaint against the suspects. There was no report on if Azad has fled with the couple’s two children, a 3-year-old daughter and 9-month-old son.
