Muslim leaders decry domestic violence
Canada's Muslim clerics have banded together to denounce domestic violence, telling their congregations during Friday prayer sessions that there is no honour in killing and that violence against women has no place in Islam.

"The best of you will never do this, the best of you will never beat their wives," Imam Sami Metwally said during his sermon at the Ottawa Mosque.

The Islamic Supreme Council and other Muslim organizations across Canada felt the need to speak out against the image of repressive violence that is coming from the high-profile Shafia trial going on in a Kingston, Ont., courtroom.

Mohammad Shafia, an Afghan-Canadian businessman, is accused along with his wife and son of murdering his three teenaged daughters and his first wife in a polygamist marriage, allegedly because they shamed his family by either dating, skipping school or planning to leave the household. The three accused have pleaded not guilty to all charges, and elder Shafia has testified in court that he is "not a killer."
