Sad story coming out of Russia where a Muslim trans woman was “butchered” just days after marrying her husband. Yahoo news reports Raina Aliev’s body was hacked into unrecognizable pieces, after her father allegedly called for her murder in a broadcast on a Russian TV station.
“Let him be killed, I don’t want to see him,” he reportedly said (misgendering his daughter). “Bring him here and kill him in front of my eyes.”
The Russian Dialog news site reported that the victim’s father issued a “purman,” which invited people to kill Raina, when he found out she’d be marrying a man who approved of her trans identity.
“He cheated them, he went there to Moscow, had surgery and he turned from a boy to a girl,” the neighbor said. “His mother is saying, ’I don’t want to see him, I gave birth to a son, but what for? It is such a disgrace for the family.’”

It is unclear where the brutal killing took place but there are reports the victim’s body was “cut up” and “unrecognisable” to those who had known her.
Police had reportedly warned Ms Aliev about threats against her life, according to local media.
Ms Aliev was from an ethnic Chechen family living in Dagestan, a Muslim region between the Caspian Sea and Chechnya.
A female neighbour told local media that the victim’s father “had a stroke” when he heard about the sex change and wedding, and issued a “purman”, inviting people to kill his son.
She said, “He cheated them, he went there to Moscow, had surgery and he turned from a boy to a girl, a disgrace for the family.”
