Pakistan and Honor Killings

Pakistanis need to get the message over to their fellow country men and women that Islam does not allow honor killings.

ISLAMABAD: In 2013, as many as 202 women were murdered in the name of Karo-kari (honour killing) in Sindh, Special Home Secretary Sindh informed the Senate Functional Committee on Human Rights on Monday.

The secretary also stated that at least 28 honour killing cases have been reported in 2014 thus far.
He added that the incidence of honour killing in interior Sindh is continuously rising because of the jirga system that exists in all districts of the rural parts of the province.

...He directed the provincial government to take effective steps to discourage the act. [Snipped from]
