I have included the video description below which includes transcripts of the parents testimonies.
Muslim Dad Muhammad Parvez dialled 911. He explained what he had done. "I killed my daughter. . . with my hands," he told the operator. "She wanted to take her stuff out."
The Muslim Dad and the Daughter had been in a dispute over not wearing the Hijab and the girl wanted to run away.
Before the Murder, the victim Aqsa Parvez tried to talk to her friends about her life Aqsa began to cry, as she tried to convince her disbelieving friends that her father would kill her, "No, he swore on the Qur'an," Aqsa said. "He said he'd kill me if I ever ran away again."
In a police interview on the day 16-year old Aqsa was murdered, her mother whose name is Anwar Jan Parvez, crying and talking out loud to herself, was recorded as saying she thought her husband was only going to "break legs and arms," but instead "killed her straight away."
The mother was also audio-recorded as saying "Oh God, Oh God. . . Oh my Aqsa, you should have listened," said in a police interview room. "Everyone tried to make you understand. Everyone begged you, but you did not listen. . .", as if it was the victim's brought this fate onto herself.
When she asked her husband why he killed her, he told her: "This is my insult. My community will say you have not been able to control your daughter. This is my insult. She is making me naked."
Muhhamad Parvez, the Muslim Dad, was also worried about Aqsa's future. All of his children had married their first cousins through arranged marriages. And the plan was for Aqsa to be married in the same way when she was old enough, to a boy in her brother's wife's family.
