Crimes: Spousal Abuse, Murder

What the hell is wrong with the world these days? I know that makes me sound like an old broad but hell, that’s what I am.

What I’m referring to is the appalling trend to behead people. In the news, every single day now, are reports of beheadings, threats of beheadings, and videos of beheadings. It’s not just Jihadists committing these unspeakable atrocities. An Oklahoma man beheaded a female co-worker. A Florida man beheaded his own mother. “Ritualists” in Nigeria beheaded two little girls. A Chinese shopkeeper beheaded a fellow shopkeeper.

And then there was Naveed Ahmed of Northolt, west London. He moved to England from Pakistan in 1997, just before he married Tahira Ahmed. His new wife suffered from a rare degenerative condition that greatly limited her mobility. Naveed Ahmed was known to say he regretted marrying her because of her poor health.

Despite her medical condition that eventually required a number of surgeries, Tahira Ahmed presented her husband with two children six years apart. She was a lovely person, described by her family as “the kindest and most patient and gentle individual who lived for her children and family”.

By outward appearances, Naveed and Tahira Ahmed were a happy couple. But outward appearances don’t count for much. Inside their £350,000 home in Northolt, Naveed Ahmed was frequently violent toward his handicapped wife. The violence escalated when he lost his job as a manager for a discount supermarket in 2013.

Police officers were called to the home several times following reports of violence by Tahira Ahmed. Tragically, no action was taken.

On the evening of May 27, 2014, Naveed Ahmed had an argument with his wife. Anticipating that events were going to get ugly, he took their 6-year-old and 12-year-old out of the house and removed them to another location. He returned alone.

The argument between Naveed and Tahira Ahmed resumed and got so loud that alarmed neighbours heard their raised voices. At around 9:00 p.m., one of the concerned neighbours called police to report a disturbance. The neighbours weren’t to know then that the disturbance was in actuality a murder.

Tahira AhmedThat evening, with the children out of the house, Naveed Ahmed vented his homicidal rage at the doting mother of his children, his devoted wife of 14 years. He used a table leg to beat Tahira, breaking both her arms. He grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed the poor woman repeatedly. Then, as Tahira lay dead or dying, Naveed Ahmed used the knife to almost completely sever her head from her body.

I pray that Tahira Ahmed was already dead when that final act of barbarity was carried out.

In all, there were 70 stabbing and blunt force injuries inflicted upon the poor woman’s body, including defensive wounds to her arms and hands.

Tahira Ahmed was only 38 when she was murdered. She’d had a life filled with domestic violence and debilitating health problems, but that hadn’t stopped her from being a loving mother, sister and daughter. She had much to live for, especially her children. Tragically, her killer thought nothing of depriving her children of their mother in the most gruesome manner possible.

Naveed Ahmed, the cowardly wife-beating killer, fled the scene after the murder, covered in his victim’s blood. He didn’t get far before the police found him in a nearby alley. He was arrested on suspicion of murder.

I have to say I feel so bad for the officers who entered the Ahmed home and found the victim’s body. It must have been terribly traumatic for them to see that bloody scene.

In October 2014 Naveed Ahmed pled not guilty to the charge of murder. On January 19, 2015 he changed that plea to guilty. His excuse for killing Tahira was that he had just snapped. “Snapped like a stick,” the defense said.

I want to know why he snapped. I want to know what went on in the hellbeast’s brain to turn him into a heartless killer. Was it because his wife dared to argue with him, her lord and master? Did he consider her too “westernized”? Or was he angry to be saddled with a sick wife? I don’t know.

What I do know is Naveed Ahmed brutally beat and stabbed a helpless woman who had just recently undergone a number of operations. He didn’t stop at breaking one arm or even two. He didn’t stop at stabbing her once or twice. Naveed Ahmed bashed and slashed his defenseless wife with 70 blows and then removed her head. That makes Naveed Ahmed a hellbeast.

And the disgusting thing is that Naveed Ahmed had the chance and the choice to do the right thing and walk away. He was mad at his wife and he could have just left. Tahira Ahmed didn’t have that chance or that choice.

At the Old Bailey on January 28, 2015, Naveed Ahmed, 41, was sentenced to a minimum of 22 years in prison. I, for one, certainly hope that translates into imprisonment for the rest of this hellbeast’s life.

A statement released by Tahira’s family, summed it up best. It read, “On this day, there is no celebration, for we have forever lost a dearly loved daughter, sister, mother and friend.

“Her life was cut short in the most brutal manner, by a barbaric man, with out-dated and backward ideals. He caused untold damage, which will forever haunt Tahira’s family and friends.

“He had no thought or consideration that he was depriving two young precious children from their mother and left all our lives and hearts in pieces.

“In light of this, not even life imprisonment could befit his heinous crime.”

My heart goes out to Tahira Ahmed’s family, friends and especially the children. I extend my sincerest condolences on their loss.

I wish Naveed Ahmed many, many years of regret. He deserves no joy and happiness now that he’s taken the life of a wonderful woman.

And I wish I never hear of another beheading again, but I realize I’m not likely to be granted that wish.

    He better spend the rest of his life in jail. Taking the children to a different location shows premeditation; the excessive violence could be considered aggravating circumstances or abuse of a corpse; fleeing the scene shows he knew what he did was wrong. His claim that he snapped isn’t even worth consideration, he’s a selfish pig and just wanted her gone.

    This is one disgusting hell beast lock him up and throw away the key. These poor children. I wish nothing but good things for them.

    I feel bad for the kids having to grow up without their parents, knowing their dad is a killer. Hope they are living happy lives now.

    And its my taxes that keep this scum sucker’s arse in prison. Can’t we just decapitate this pig instead? At least he’ll have to serve the 22years before he’s considered for parole, but those poor kids have got a life sentence, this lump of shit should never be released.

    I have much contempt for spouse murderers. As someone with a debilitating disease, I know it is tough on the spouse. We have come close to divorce on more than one occasion, and my disease was at the heart of it. Did either of us resort to violence? No. We started counselling. Things are working out. Why can’t these asshats realize that they can walk away or get help and if nothing else keep their self centered, nasty asses out of prison. I know, because they are hellbeasts, and apparently hellbeasts lack common sense. Argh.

    Oh, and add San Francisco to the beheading list. They had the guy they are pretty sure did it, but had to let him go for lack of evidence. I guess catching him on surveillance video dropping off the suitcase containing the poor man’s headless body off in front of Goodwill isn’t good enough to hold him.
