Pravin Singh Beheads his Girlfriend, What if he were Muslim?

Pravin Singh Beheads his Girlfriend, What if he were Muslim?

Remember the Muslim man who behead his wife? It was all over the news and Islamophobes made big hay out of it. Turning a tragic case of domestic violence into a Crusade against Islam. Bill Maher also attributed the act to Islam.

Now we have a case of a man named Pravin Singh, likely Sikh or Hindu who beheaded his girlfriend in front of her classmates. Will we blame Sikhism or Hinduism now? No, that would be wrongheaded and illogical but just imagine if he were Muslim!

Bijendra Kumar, India Beheading Suspect, Accused Of Cutting Girlfriend’s Head Off With Knife

(Huffington Post)

PATNA, India — Police say that a man armed with a large knife beheaded an 18-year-old woman at her school in front of her horrified classmates in eastern India.

The attacker later told police he was in love with the victim but her parents wouldn’t allow them to marry.

Police official Pravin Kumar Singh said Thursday that officers arrested Bijendra Kumar on suspicion of killing Khushbu, who uses only one name. He allegedly attacked her a ceremonial curved weapon called a khukri as she was leaving her classroom Wednesday in the eastern city of Ranchi.

Authorities say the blade sliced her head off and she died instantly. Kumar was quickly mobbed by the other students and handed over to the police. Singh says Kumar told the police that he had also intended to kill himself.

  1. According to the article, Pravin Singh is the police official. The beheader is Bijendra Kumar.

  2. Fact check alert:
    Pravin Singh was **the police officer’s name** not the knife wielder’s!!
    His name was Bijendra Kumar.

  3. But the point is still valid as Bijendra Kumar is also a Hindu name….

  4. Naseerah, how do you know Bijendra Kumar is a Hindu, and not a Christian, or even a Muslim. Are muslims prohibited from taking Sanskrit names?
