Murder and the “Teenager Issue”

In the recent news about a Muslim father who allegedly killed his own sixteen years old daughter in Canada over her refusing to wear a Muslim headscarf, I came across a quote from Mohamed Elmasry of the Canadian Islamic Congress, who said that the whole thing must just be a “teenager issue” completely unrelated to Islam, or immigration. What irritates me in this comment is that no matter what the motives are it’s never the victim’s problem (or issue) that he or she got murdered. It’s the murderer, the father in this case, who obviously had an “issue” be that Islam, immigration or parenting in general. Does Mr. Elmasry think that 9/11 was an aviation issue?
