Killing is Killing is Killing.

February 23, 2011

Honor killing. There’s a name for it. In certain tribes in Iraq and Pakistan, its common for a father to murder their daughters for things like refusing an arranged marriage, or being too westernized. This is the second one I’ve heard of in the past 2 weeks. The girls were 21, and 20. They were my age. . . .

In this particular case, the family lived in the US and was found guilty, however, in countries like Iraq and Pakistan where women are lower caste citizens I don’t believe that punishment for this crime is enforced.

I’m at a loss for words.
