Yesterday a brother killed his 19 years old sister in Karachi because she was talking to her Neighbour. In the last few years 510 women have been killed for honour killing in Pakistan, and only 19 have been convicted by court. Can some one please help me to understand why is this happening. ? The Qur’an in Surah Nur has laid down the rules of interaction between men and women. Where do fathers, brothers even some husbands come up with the honour killing justification? Fathers have killed their daughters for marrying out of their choice. You hear of such cases even among the parents settled in the West. There at least the government takes action. There was a very known case of a father (very well educated) and mother coming into court and killing their daughter in front of her lawyer because she was marrying some one of her own choice. This is one of the biggest evil I know and an extremely serious problem giving a very bad name to Islam.
Are they getting this permission from some misinterpreted Hadith? Can some one shed a light on this. Thank you
