Muslim girl stoned to death for joining beauty contest
By now, news of Katya Koren being stoned to death for going against Shariah law are widespread. It has angered Muslims and non-Muslims alike. The Daily Mail reported that 3 Muslim youths were responsible for the murder. One of the three suspects, named as 16-year-old Bihal Gaziev, was quoted as telling police that Katya had “violated the laws of Sharia,” and that he has no regrets about her death.
Now, Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People Chairman Mustafa Abdülcemil Qırımoğlu, commonly known as Mustafa Cemiloğlu in Turkey, said the detained teenager, who is of Crimean Tatar descent, was pressured by police into accepting the blame for the murder. He was quoted as saying, “The killing was covered in a distorted way, as if it was a religiously motivated murder, by the media around the world.”[pullquote_left]“The killing was covered in a distorted way, as if it was a religiously motivated murder, by the media around the world.”[/pullquote_left]
It appears that Katya Koren is not even Muslim in the first place! Ukrainian officials like Qırımoğlu say that Koren is actually a Christian with Russian roots. He adds, “The girl was not Muslim. All these [reports] are a provocation and fabricated news.”
In a news conference in Simferopol, a senior policeman involved in the case, Sergei Reznikov is quoted by theTelegraph as saying. “A student did it, killing his classmate. There is no other underlying reason, neither religious nor linked with inter-ethnic conflicts.” It has now come to light that the boy is a psychologically disturbed classmate and did not do it in the name of Shariah.
