Islamic terrorism has been at the forefront of the news again, following attacks in Brussels, Paris and domestically in San Bernardino. All of these attacks feature a pattern of violence inspired by an extremist interpretation of a religion. Recently, in San Jose, there was a murder within a Muslim family that does not follow this convention.

Brothers Hasib bin Golamrabbi and Omar Golamrabbi are being charged with the murders of their parents Golam and Shamima Rabbi. Not many details are known at this time, but it looks to be a situation where some form of mental illness was a factor. Their family home (where the murders were committed) was covered in strange notes all over the walls. As far as the specifics, Deputy District Attorney Matt Braker stated, “Golam and Shamima Rabbi were murdered inside their home by their two sons on Saturday, April 23. Golam was shot more than a dozen times. Shamima was shot once in the head.”

The brothers have entered a not guilty plea. Hasib appeared in court wearing an assigned yellow jumpsuit, which typically signifies a prisoner held in the psychiatric ward. He claimed a stranger forced him to commit the murders, but had very few specifics to offer in that regard at this time. Before the murders, Hasib’s last Facebook post read: “F— yeah to the kids who feel like they’re dying inside but still gather up the strength to roll out of bed, get dressed and leave the house. You are strong and beautiful and worth so much more than you know.”
