"The only way to rectify the family's honor is to have wife, daughter, sister killed. " BLOOD cleanses HONOR", killer says.
Honor killing, Muslim women have been brutally murdered by family members. Her crime? Trying to break free and live in western lifestyle. The killers are reversed as "heroes" for thier family dignity. How can such horrific and shockingly archaic practices flourishing in the heart? The deaths have sparkled momentary ourselves, will they change the grim reality for the muslim women?
"Killing more people won't help matters. "
At least, 943 women were killed in the name of honor, of which 93 were minors. Killed for being raped, Hena, 14, was raped when she went to toilet and she was sentenced to 100 lashes under Sharia law. She made it to 70.
A girl was chopped just because she was caught meeting with her lover. We are taught to love, and than we are restricted for the same.
But to all these incidents is killing the only thing which will give justice to all. Behind a single moment, they forget the lifetime they have spent with that person. From the moment you gave to her birth, from the moment when you called her your "angel", from the moment when you surprised her on her every birthday eve, from the moment when you gifted her a beautiful dress with a crown, from the moment when she spoke the first time "maa" and "paa",from the time when she held your finger and learnt to walk, the moment when you dropped and picked her from the school, from the time you thought her to be a doctor, engineer, business woman. Even she got the equal right, like that of a men to decide and live for herself. Killing has become easier, than living. Under the terms and conditions that is made by the society.
