A soft-spoken Muslim woman tried to slit her Staten Island husband’s throat as he slept – enraged that he made her eat pork and wear sexy skirts, officials said.
“It’s time for you to die!” screamed Rabia Sarwar as she pounced on hubby Sheikh Naseem, sources said.
He woke early Wednesday to find her straddling his chest and hacking at his neck with a knife.
The burly 41-year-old, a teacher at Susan Wagner High School, overpowered the pretty petite Sarwar, 37, and grabbed the weapon.
[A]uthorities said she was furious that Naseem stayed so Western: “She’s a very devout Muslim and she felt that he got her to marry him under false pretenses,” a source said. “He doesn’t really observe any of the traditions of Islam. She says he forced her to eat pork and wear short skirts.”
She also claimed that his favorite author is Salman Rushdie, reviled by devout Muslims after writing the prophet-bashing “The Satanic Verses.”
