This is just awful. From Michelle Malkin:
A father killed his wife and four daughters in their sleep because he could not bear them adopting a more westernised lifestyle, an inquest heard yesterday.
Mohammed Riaz, 49, found it abhorrent that his eldest daughter wanted to be a fashion designer, and that she and her sisters were likely to reject the Muslim tradition of arranged marriages.
On Hallowe’en last year he sprayed petrol throughout their terraced home in Accrington, Lancs, and set it alight.
Caneze Riaz, 39, woke and tried to protect her three-year-old child, Hannah, who was sleeping with her, but was overcome by fumes. Her other daughters, Sayrah, 16, Sophia, 13, and Alisha, 10, died elsewhere in the house.
Riaz, who had spent the evening drinking, set himself on fire and died two days later.

Relatives broke the news to the couple’s son, Adam, 17, as he lay terminally ill with cancer at the Christie Hospital, Manchester. He died six weeks later.
I don’t care what religion you are or what you believe, but kiiling people just because they don’t believe in it as strongly as you do is just awful, or as Michelle puts it, monstrous. Oh, but this must not be one of the run of the mill muslims, he must be one of those rare birds known as an extremist, of which most muslims don’t belong. Yeah, right. Islam is all about converting the rest of the world, and those that aren’t converted end up as slaves, or dead. There are moderate muslims out there, and they need to take a long hard look at what their religion is promoting.
