Lawyer: Man Who Killed Wife Over Lentil Dinner Should Be Released Early Because There’s No Pakistani Food in Prison
A lawyer for Noor Hussein, a Pakistani immigrant who killed his wife over an unsatisfactory dinner, says his sentence should be reduced because there’s no Pakistani food in prison.

A Pakistani immigrant who killed his wife for feeding him lentils should be given a short sentence because the lack of home-style food will make jail ‘difficult’, a court was told.
Noor Hussein, 75, beat his wife to death with a stick in their New York apartment in 2011, and was convicted of the killing in May. Earlier the New York Supreme Court heard how he lashed out at Nazar Hussein, 66, because she made him a vegetarian lentil dinner instead of cooking goat.
News flash: prison is supposed to be difficult for convicted killers like Hussein. That’s sort of the point of sending them there. If going to prison is comparable to staying at a nice bed and breakfast, it’s not much of a deterrent, is it?
