You know sometimes one focuses so much on the big issues that afflict this world, that tiny tragedies slip by un-noticed. I was reading this news story about how the father of four girls found murdered in their blazing home was concerned about the state of his disintegrating marriage. Friends said Mohammed Riaz, 49, had begun to fear that his Anglo-Pakistani wife, Caneze, was having an affair and it seems one thing led to another and …four young girls lost their lives. Mr Riaz had become devout in his devotion to Islam and centred his life around the local Mosque, apparently.
I have nothing to say about the rights and wrongs of this case other than to observe the desperation, anger and horror that lies behind the headlines. God bless the poor young girls, murdered by their own father.
