Egyptian Girl Commits Suicide After Refusing To Wear Hijab

Amira, a 15-year-old Egyptian girl, allegedly committed suicide as a result of the domestic abuse she suffered at the hands of her family after refusing to wear the hijab. The girl apparently shot herself with her father's gun, but you have to wonder if it was actually suicide or did her family kill her for dishonoring them by refusing to wear the headscarf.  Not an impossibility, considering people have been honor killed for equally ludicrous reasons.

Either way, I'm sure they are probably happy to be rid of a rebellious child.

How incredibly sad.
