Beating child to death not of concern to Muslim family. Showing wife’s face in mug shot is.

Update from who noticed exactly what we did.

The police booking photo of alleged child killer Nour Hadid released Tuesday is an “insult against our religion,” says Hadid’s husband, Alaeddin.

Orland Park police detectives say the 26-year-old Muslim woman was treated as any other suspect in a murder probe would be, and they did not intend to humiliate her when they photographed her Sunday without her headscarf and wearing only a skimpy top.

Many devout American Muslim women wear the “hijab,” or traditional headscarf, for religious identity and to signify their modesty, a virtue stressed in Islam for men and women.

There has been some debate among Muslim scholars as to whether the scarf is mandated in religious texts, but for most women who choose to wear the hijab, it is a religious obligation.

To many Muslims, taking off a woman’s hijab in public is akin to taking off someone’s clothes and making him or her stand in his or her underwear.

Some Muslim women also wear a “niqab,” or veil covering their face. But the niqab, many argue, is more of a cultural preference than a dress code enforced by Islam.

Nour Hadid is accused of beating her 2-year-old niece Bhia Hadid to death over four days at her home on the 9000 block of West 140th Street. The child had 55 separate bruises and was beaten “from head to toe,” according to prosecutors, who say Hadid confessed.

But Alaeddin Hadid – who insists his wife is innocent – said Orland Park police are “really going to be in big trouble” for releasing the woman’s booking photo to the news media after she was charged with first-degree murder.

The Hadids are Muslims and Nour “never leaves the home without covering up,” said Alaeddin, who’s vowed to sue.

By custom, some practicing Muslim women wear the hijab, or headscarf, and cover their arms and legs when in public.

In the mug shot, a bare-headed and obviously emotional Nour appears to be protecting her modesty with her hands.

“It is against our religion; we do not do this in our culture,” Alaeddin said.

“People have been calling me about this all day.”

Bhia Hadid’s funeral took place Thursday.

Suicide threats

Orland Park police Cmdr. Chuck Doll said the mug shot was taken “for identification purposes” before Hadid made her confession. Her headscarf was handed back to her after the photo was taken, Doll said.

“A matron was with her at all times while she was in our custody,” Doll said. A matron is a law enforcement official who works with women held in custody. “She was wearing a tank top, and she had the headscarf when she was interviewed.”

The headscarf later was taken from her after she made suicide threats, he said.

A sobbing Hadid appeared without the headscarf at the Bridgeview courthouse Tuesday and is being held without bail at the Cermak Medical Center at the Cook County Jail, where she remains on suicide watch.

Police have said her husband’s possible involvement in Bhia’s death still is under investigation.

Nour Hadid’s attorney, Frank Celani, said he hopes to speak with her today about the mug shot.

Respecting the accused

Islamic advocacy groups seem wary of taking up Hadid’s cause.

Spokesmen for the Council on Islamic American Relations, the Islamic Society of North America and the Bridgeview Mosque Foundation all declined to comment Thursday.

But Dr. Mohammed Sahloul, chairman of the Council of Islamic Organizations of Chicago, said that while police should follow the usual procedures with all defendants, “they should respect the modesty of the accused.”

Sahloul, who made it clear he was not aware of the Hadid case and was speaking in general terms about the hijab, pointed out that Muslim women are allowed to wear hijabs in photos for their state IDs.

“If it’s for the purposes of identification and they cover in public, then that’s going to be more effective in identifying them anyway,” he said.

Former chairman Kareem Irfan said, “It’s particularly humiliating because she appears to be in her underwear.

“I don’t condone what she’s alleged to have done.

“But if it was a nun accused of these crimes, would they treat her the same way?”

  1. It’s too bad that the life of this little girl was not treated with any respect compared to the issue of a woman’s modesty in Islam. The only point of interest in this article should be that a 2 year old has been beaten to death by an obviously crazed woman who has confessed to the crime. Let’s see……….nuns, tank tops, an offended hubby…………..poor little Bhai Hadid didn’t stand a chance against this lunacy.

  2. But Islam is the religion of peace! How could anyone imagine a muslim woman would beat a child to death. Naturally, the police, who were only doing what they do with every arrested suspect, nun, pedophile, or muslim are not going to be threatened or in any way castigated by the islamic religious reich are they? Clearly this child beat herself and probably did so because god commanded her to do it for some sin.

    Most of the problems of the world are, and always have been, caused by religion. Humanity will never truly be free until the black yoke of religion is lifted by the clear light of truth and rational thinking.

  3. It is against our religion; we do not do this in our culture,” Alaeddin said.
    FU Alaeddin, Fuck your muslim laws! We have U.S. laws!! That are not based on any religion, Christian, Muslim, or any other. We are a secular nation.

  4. I’m all for protecting others’ religious rights, but this is ridiculous. It’s a friggin’ mugshot, her face has to be visible, and they release mugshots of all people to the media when the media wants to report about it. It’s not like she was a special case here. She’s the one who was wearing a tank top. (Way to show your modesty there, honey.) If she had been wearing a less revealing shirt there wouldn’t be a problem here and she wouldn’t look like she’s in her underwear. It’s not like they made her strip all of her clothes off until she was in her bra and underwear.

  5. Thanks Werrf. Looks like she was treated much worse. A. She did not hit anyone, just nearly did, and B. They called her booze, “Jesus Juice” but I bet they don’t refer to a halal tube steak as Allah dick. They were far far harsher on this, exceptionally rare, incident of a Catholic nun who drove drunk.

  6. These fucking Muslim cunts need to realize this America. We photograph alleged murderers faces. We don’t let people wear masks in banks why the fuck do these cunts have to be special. Fuck em, especially when there accused of murdering a child. I am sick and tired of bending over backwards for these backwards ass hillbilly Muslim fucks and this goes for all the Christian hillbilly cocksuckers as well. They’re all fucking retarded.
