About honor killing.

 Honor killing is  a wrong tribal and feudal  practice, legit  in Pakistan.



Whenever I write about  issues, hardly few understand.
Anyway, I wanna clear one thing today about  honor killing weather you understand it or not.

I am writing this because so many cases are popping up  in  the West where some are killing their daughters/ sisters/ wife in the name of honor. 

If you notice  all these murders  has been done  by  Pakistanis and Afghan origins only, living in the west. However  media associates this with Islam. And general public curse Islam on comment sections.

Actually they are third parties and don't know anything about it.Yup, it's way strange to them because no sane human does this. They might haven't heard  of this twisted  notion of honor ever in their whole life.

This is happening in this region  since ages, and it is way legit by society. Victims are both man and woman. Now it is going  to the west.

 We attach honor with women only. People feel ghairatmand ( honorable) after doing it. For so long we didn't  dub it murder or killing. Still  cops, jirga, people,________whole society  don't mind  this act.

Understand this, Pakistan has 4 states from which two are tribal, and two are feudal.
Sindha + Punjab = Feudal
KPK +  Baluchistan = Tribal.

And  on whole  70% of the  population are rural, and no offense illiterate. They are illiterate because of themselves. Only 3 cities are so called developed: Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad.

So in the nutshell, we are tribal and feudal nation by nature and no matter where on this earth we go, we are gonna be like that. Only thing is that in the West our hands has been tied, but still as we know a dog's tail can't be straightened, we do honor killing over their tooThey are paindu, will always be paindu.

I don't care how much  west is bent,  or how much crime exist their. Honor killing happens in our culture, not there. No one have this filthy concept of honor.

So when these paindu immigrate to the west with this mind set   they go crazy and do honor killing or force marriage type crimes.

Actually, we can not stand our women to get education, let them to choose  husband or  cloths, or  even  subjects when they go to higher classes. We just can not.


There are local names for HK.

Like, in Sindh   karao karai, a local name for it. If you go into more interior of this state, there are  even graveyards where men and women, both  have been buried  upon each other for the crime of love, and many other thing.  They even marry their women with Holy Qur'an if they could not find a suitable male with in their caste.

 Khaiber Paktoon Khoon, the  most fucked up north, neighbor of Afghanistan happily marry their child daughters in the name of  Swara, and in Baluchistan which is goddam bleak and backward, where you will never be able to know what will happen in a jiff, Kala-kali is  thing there.

Jirga is local gathering of elder men in tribal states, and Panchayat in feudal states, where they solve what to do with social issues. Mostly punishment for lovers ( for man and woman both)  is  killing, buried alive,  gang rape for woman,  vani and  Swara (giving a girl child to other clan for settling issue )  watta satta (both parties exchange their women to settle their beef in a mutual way), and nude parade, burned to death, stoned to death for muding family name or honor.

Just few days a go a woman  was  forced to parade naked in the Khangarh. And if Jirga, or Panchayat wouldn't do this people do this at individual level like acid throwing.

Funny thing is that  no one  have ever done anything   to  clamp down this.Once Muktra Mai stepped up but then ??????????
NGO's used her for themselves.

This is a social, cultural and psychological issue and no one will say a single word against it.
How could they, by the way, this is honor !

 So my question  is how come just because of these two hypocrite tribal and feudal nations, who happened to be  are Muslim,  this whole crime has become a Islamic thing ?

  3. Like many people I find the idea of honor-killing horrible. But I don't associate this with Islam. I agree that it's cultural--tribal. I wasn't aware of men being killed this way so you've taught me something new, unfortunate that this is.

  7. Thanks for clearing this up. I've read so much about honor killing, and it's just sad that parents do this to their daughters. I hope a global org can step up to prevent this from happening over and over again.

  8. this was very informative and I appreciate the time you took to tell us more about it. It is still hard to understand how things can happen this way and hopefully we will learn more from each other and learn to live together with respect.

  10. Interesting post - I learned a lot from it. Being Muslim I am tired of telling my Christian family that Honor Killing is not Islamic but cultural but the media shows it differently! Imagine if everytime a Christian did a bad thing we branded all Christians the same way! The terrible shooting in America for example where a student killed all those people in the cinema - if it had been a muslim student it would have been reported islamic terrorist - You wouldn't see it advertised as Christian Terrorist kills many at Cinema. The media has a lot to do with how things are shown!

    1. You have a very good point. Actually, we have had Christians who bomb abortion clinics in the U.S. This gets ALL Christians branded as hateful, hypocritical, etc. It's so sad because I know Islam and Christianity are FUNDAMENTALLY PEACEFUL. Sadly, it's the 1% whack jobs that are driving all the religious friction out there!

  11. Actually there are Hindus in India that have killed their own family members in the name of "honour". I don't think it is a religious thing and anyone who does has a very small mind or does not want to dig deep because they are too lazy.
    No man with his head and heart in the right place would do such a thing. A religion can't be wrong, it's men who twist the words in the holy book who are sick!

  12. You have written very well. Its very thought provoking. But One thing is to remember here, What you have mentioned as "Paindu" mean "illiterate sort of people" exist every where, whether its feudal or tribal areas. Some times very sane people attempt crazy acts and defame own country.

    That girl killed in UK by parents on the name of honor doesn't belong either of tribal area in Pakistan. In fact they belong from panjab. KPK, no doubt most of the area have gone tribal type now a days coz extremism has given a big jolt to this area.But Still many educated people are here, who realize the differences and are in continuous struggle to come out of this unfavorable conditions.

    Unfortunately Pakistan on the whole have gathered a very unfavorable fame in the world, regardless of tribal or feudal systems. Islamabad is proudly a feudal but still have no reputation (I am very sorry to say this)

    Before it was just FATA"Federally Administered Tribal Area" and FANA "Federally Administered Northern Areas". Now look at the word "Federally Administered" . If they are so then how they becomes tribal? They are federally administered nor Tribal administered............Think about being Pakistani!!

    Allah Bless Pakistan. I think its only Allah Blessing so far that our country is still existing though shabby, otherwise the people have left nothing to destroy.

    Thanks for the share and keep writing :)

  15. Thank you for this post! Like many here, I too learned that this is Tribal, cultural and NOT Islamic!

    We in the West simply have no basis to compare it to. It's brutal and savage and completely contrary to our values and common sense--inexplicable! Of course with our limited knowledge--and our main contact with Islam being 9/11--we automatically lump it in with all that. (You did an exceptional job explaining the head scarf in an earlier post, thank you!!)
    Please keep educating us out West about these issues.
    PLEASE DON'T BE FRUSTRATED WITH OUR ASSUMPTION THAT IT'S RELIGIOUS!
    You are educating us, and we are learning! I share the same frustration when, being a Christian, people automatically assume I go parading around judging and condemning homosexuals, etc., instead of loving them like Jesus did!!
    You are a VERY important blogger--a bridge between MidEast and West--that we DESPERATELY NEED!

    KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!!!!!!!!!!!!
