Australia: Muslim sells her daughter for $15,000 for marriage, new husband slits his wife’s throat
Islam is just as bad (or arguably worse, depending on how one looks at it) as Christian gender complementarianism, but I never see American progressives (especially the progressive Christians or “exvangelicals”) griping about or criticizing Islam.

The mother’s action is an example of how Islam, with its polygamy and more, reduces women to the status of commodities. The husband’s action is a manifestation of a culture of violence that mandates the beating of disobedient women (cf. Qur’an 4:34), and is an example of the implementation of a Qur’anic penalty for unbelievers (47:4).

The mother of a young Afghani woman who was murdered by her husband has been accused of forcing her daughter into an arranged marriage for a $15,000 payment.
Sakina Muhammad Jan, 45, is facing a single charge of causing another person to enter a forced marriage, and faced a court hearing for the first time on Wednesday.
Police will allege Ms Jan pressured her daughter Ruqia Haidari, 21, to marry 25-year-old Uber driver Mohammad Ali Halimi in November 2019.
The couple met just four times before they were married in front of hundreds of guests just outside of Shepparton, 180km north of Melbourne, in a community hall in Mooroopna.
…During the time between calls, Halimi found a stainless steel knife from the kitchen and slit Ms Haidari’s throat twice, Western Australia’s Supreme Court eventually determined.
Halimi was sentenced to life behind bars earlier this year.
