Geeta Aulakh’s Murder Hijacked By Daily Mail’s ‘Asian’ Agenda

by | 3rd, December 2010

GEETA Aulakh was murdered on the instruction of her estranged husband Harpreet Aulakh, 32. She was a Hindu mother-of-two who wanted a divorce. He was a Sikh who did not. She was hacked to death on the street in Greenford, London.

Sher Singh, 19, struck the fatal blows. He was in the UK on a bogus student visa. Jaswant Dhillon, 30, acted as a lookout. All have been jailed for life.

When the story first broke, the Daily Mail saw not a woman murdered but an Asian woman. It duly gave air to the theory she’d been the victim of an “honour killing”. This was the headline:

“Honour killing theory as mother-of-two is found dumped in the street with her hand severed”

The Mail had no evidence of it having been an honour killing. But, hey, these were Asians. So get load of that headline. And before that one the Mail had run with:

“Asian woman, 28, found dying in street with hand chopped off”

Asian first. Woman second.

But this was good old-fashion male violence against women. And since did that fit an agenda..?
