'Wear the hijab or I'll kill you, cousin told girl': Muslim tells of terrifying phone threats
by Colin Fernandez
A man threatened to kill his cousin and harm her family after she decided to stop wearing the traditional Muslim headscarf, a court has heard.
Mohamed Al-Hakim, 29, allegedly phoned Alya Al-Safar to tell her she must die because of the 'shame' she had brought – leaving her too afraid to leave the house.
He had already branded her family 'bitches and whores' because of her decision, the court heard.
