‘Medieval’ Muslim stabbed care worker wife EIGHT TIMES because she looked after men:

A DEVOUT Muslim has been accused of displaying “almost medieval” attitudes towards women after he murdered his wife simply because he disapproved of her looking after men in her role as a care assistant.

Imran Khan, 38, had sent spouse Nasreen a series of text messages claiming she was contravening Islam and adding: “If you go to men’s houses and lie to me I get angry. If you play games I get angry.”Later he stabbed her to death with a kitchen knife in a frenzied attack during a furious row at the home they shared with their three children in Cheadle Hulme, Greater Manchester.

He told police afterwards: “Never get an arranged marriage, bro.”

Imran Khan, 38, had sent spouse Nasreen a series of text messages claiming she was contravening Islam and adding: “If you go to men’s houses and lie to me I get angry. If you play games I get angry.”Later he stabbed her to death with a kitchen knife in a frenzied attack during a furious row at the home they shared with their three children in Cheadle Hulme, Greater Manchester.

He told police afterwards: “Never get an arranged marriage, bro.”

Passing sentence Judge Patrick Field QC told him: “Nasreen worked hard to support her family and was good at that job but by contrast you are a selfish and controlling man, did little to support your family and your wife, instead you sought to determine how she should live her life, expressing your disapproval of her choice of work.”You did not want Nasreen to have contact with other men, even though they were her clients, and her duties involved no more than administering medication and warming their food.

“It appears your disapproval was born out of some outdated, almost medieval notion of how a wife should behave. You ordered her to stop – and she wouldn’t.

“Unless anybody should think this was some kind of cultural clash let it be said that the evidence shows that your parents and sister were entirely supportive of Nasreen’s choice. You nevertheless decided that no wife of yours should be caring for men.”

The couple married in an arranged union in 1999 after Khan’s family travelled to Pakistan but the marriage was stormy.

He spent family money on himself and claimed his wife would pretend to be asleep to avoid them getting intimate with each other.In December 2015 Mrs Khan got a job with Homecare Services looking after both vulnerable men and women telling relatives she wanted to “gain experience and independence, and help support her family.”

But Khan was unhappy with her job and the fact she had one-to-one contact with men. He sent her vitriolic text messages suggesting “Allah would not approve.”

On the day she was killed, Mrs Khan confided in her boss about her husband’s behaviour saying: “I can’t take it anymore, I don’t know what to do” and the employer offered to speak to Khan.

But as the discussed the situation, Mrs Khan got another text from her husband saying: “It’s not halal for you to work with men. I don’t give permission. I told you no men when you started.”In another text, he claimed she was committing “haram” which means “forbidden” in Islam saying: “If she can’t get you a rota with no men then leave the job, I don’t give you permission for that, so listen to what I’m telling you, you are my wife, let me remind you you are married.

“If you go another man’s house again then you are doing haram. Don’t ignore this again and again it’s haram what you’re doing.”

That night the couple began arguing after Mrs Khan showed the text messages to their eldest daughter.

Khan went out only to return an hour later saying: “I have got no choice – I’m going to kill her and kill myself.”He then stormed into the kitchen and stabbed his wife eight times before emerging with a “twisted and crazy” expression on his face.

Mrs Khan was given first aid at the scene but died of her injuries.

Khan fled to a friend’s house and gave himself up later and told police: “I don’t know what I have done – it’s like a bad dream. I always loved her – I never meant to do nothing.”
