ROP: THIS IS ISLAM: Pakistani Muslim in Brooklyn beats his wife to death for serving him the wrong meal
Defense attorney Julie Clark admitted
Noor Hussain beat his wife — but argued that he is guilty of only
manslaughter because it’s a cultural thing. In Pakistan, Clark said,
beating one’s wife is customary. There are even rules about the proper
way to do it in the quran.
A Pakistani Muslim immigrant beat his wife to death in their Brooklyn
home after she made the mistake of cooking him lentils for dinner
instead of the hearty meal of goat meat that he craved, according to
Noor Hussain, center
75, was so outraged over the vegetarian fare that he pummeled his wife,
Nazar Hussain, 66, with a stick until she was a “bloody mess,” according
to prosecutors and court papers.
asked [his wife] to cook goat and [his wife] said she made something
else,” the court papers indicated as Hussain’s murder trial opened on
Wednesday. “The conversation got louder and [his wife] disrespected
defendant by cursing at defendant and saying motherf- -ker, and . . .
defendant took a wooden stick and hit her with it on her arm and mouth.”
“Hussain comes from a culture where he
thinks this is appropriate conduct, where he can hit his wife,” Clark
said in her opening statements at the Brooklyn Supreme Court bench
trial. “He culturally believed he had the right to hit his wife and
discipline his wife.”
Prosecutors, however, said Hussain
meant for his wife to die. “His intentions were to kill his wife,”
Assistant District Attorney Sabeeha Madni said in court. “This was not a
man who was trying to discipline his wife.”
Madni said that Hussain “brutally
attacked his wife as she lay in her bed” — leaving deep lacerations on
her head, arms and shoulders, and causing her brain to hemorrhage.
He beat her
with a stick that the family had found in the street and used to stir
their laundry in a washtub, the court papers state. He then tried to
clean up the blood that had splattered onto their bedroom wall before
calling his son for help, Madni said.
“I killed her. Hurry up and come over,” Hussain told his son, according to prosecutors.
said Pakistani women who lived in the same building as the Hussains
would testify about the beatings Nazar received at the hands of her
husband. “They have told us about years of abuse they witnessed,” Madni
said. Hussain met his wife in Pakistan and the couple married before
moving to Brooklyn, prosecutors said.
