Honor murder in Switzerland: father "..struck his daughter 19 times with the axe: 12 times with the blade and seven with the blunt end."

All because she was dating a Christian.  Western sensibilities say the father should spend his last minutes on earth praying for forgiveness.  Islam says;

     "retaliation is obligatory against anyone who kills a human being purely intentionally and without right." However, "not subject to retaliation" is "a father or mother (or their fathers or mothers) for killing their offspring, or offspring's offspring." ('Umdat al-Salik o1.1-2).   (Thanks to Jihad Watch)

This hadith has been certified as right and correct by none other than Al-Azhar University in Cairo, seat of Sunni jurisprudence.  There is no penalty for killing your daughter because she sullied the family honor.  

This is Islam.

Dad killed daughter in brutal axe murder

A Swiss prosecutor has described as a "veritable slaughter" the vicious axe murder of a 16-year-old girl by her 53-year-old Pakistani father, who believed his daughter had tarnished her family's honour.

The charge sheet presented by prosecutor Ulrich Krättli suggests he will call for the accused to be given life in prison, the maximum sentence under Swiss law, when the high-profile case goes to trial on March 14th.
On May 10th 2010, 16-year-old Swera was picked up at a Zurich police station by both her parents. She had been held there by police after she was arrested for a minor theft.
Once back at their apartment in Höngg, on the outskirts of the city, a heated argument broke out between father and daughter, newspaper Tages Anzeiger reports.
The girl said she wanted to leave home permanently and started to pack her things. She then went down to the basement of the building to get a pair of shoes. While she was gone, her father allegedly retrieved an axe from the balcony and hid it in the bedroom he shared with his wife.
Once she was back in the apartment, the girl went into her parents' bedroom to pick up some of her belongings. When she bent down to get some things from the wardrobe, her father hit her with the axe on the back of the head, the prosecutor says. The man struck his daughter 19 times with the axe: 12 times with the blade and seven with the blunt end.
The teenager not die instantly, but lay on the ground in agonising pain for several minutes until her life finally slipped away.
