Honor killings refer to the murder of people who have supposedly committed some act deemed to be a violation of honor.

Such acts may include marrying someone regarded as “unsuitable,” sex before marriage, demanding a divorce, a woman (married or unmarried) being raped, or even things as mundane and innocent as calling a radio station to ask for a song to be played on air, a girl seen talking to a boy ...

from International Business Times:

"Although honor killings are typically associated with Muslim countries like Turkey, Iraq and especially Pakistan, the practice has nothing to do with Islam. Rather, it is rooted in ancient tribal customs whereby the 'honor' of a family or a whole village is represented by the morality, chastity and proper behavior of its women ..."

Although honor killings are rooted in tribalism, these killings have become part of islam thru islamic law or shar'ia.

When a muslim male kills a female familt member to regain honour he will say she insulted islam therefore disobeying allah which is islamic.Honour killings are only ever committed by muslims so it is islamic.Girls do anything no matter how innocent shes bought shame to the family kill her.And where is your honour in killing anyway.You belive allah wants you to kill another human being because she did something deemed inapproiate by you.I am not relegious my self although i was brought up catholic but i decded all relegions especially islam has too much hypocrisy no contunity basically you can pick holes in all relegions so i chosse not to be in any.But one thing i do know from being taught about god.IS GOD FORGIVES.he forgave mery magadelane even though she was a prostitute.She mended her ways he forgave her why can your sister not be given the same chance to mend her ways instead of you killing her.And if allah is truely god just by s diffrent name i think if you could talk to god he would say theres no honour in killing another

So you choose to sit on the fence yet still manage to cherry pick the passages you like and discount the ones you dont.

Iam sure there is a name for people like you, just remember, its people that let down what was revealed by the one God, not the torah, gospel or koran.

Seek truth, wherever it may be...dont stop with just being an agnostic, your nearly there...

Honor killing is a shameful practice that I find offensive as a woman, and I don't care where it happens and what culture it belongs to (in fact, cultural anthropologists link it to ancient Arab pre-Islamic tribal societies, so linking it to Islam is wrong and nowhere in Koran does is it mentioned). I am appalled that a nation like Holland kicked out the one Muslim women who dared speak against this barbarian practice and that of female genital mutilation. If Kurds and others in Turkey, or in ANY other nation do it, Human Rights Watch needs to bring them to justice with their attorneys. Disgusting.

You can stop the honor killing in Turkey the same way that they protected the Vestal Virgins in Ancient Rome, if anyone killed a Vestal Virgin then the person was themself sentenced to death and would be killed, so in Turkey you just let it be known that any scumbag who kills a woman as a honor killing will thmeselves be killed. If you kill a woman for an honor killing, you yourself will die. That would stop the honor killing. The men of Turkey must protect the women of Turkey. God made men stronger so that we can protect women and children. The women of Turkey must be protected.

Every time this is discussed, Turks are quick to blame it on others like "oh those are Kurds that did the killing".

But when an Armenian like Sinan designs all of historic Istanbul, all of a sudden he is a "Pure Turk"

Shhhh, the Armenians in LA have NOTHING to say on this considering the abuse towards Armenian women here in this town...hide and do something, everyone knows how you treat Armenian women (beating, killing, burning alive)....thank God for men like Sahakian who are changing this brutal behavior.

Agreed, but if it happens in Kurdish villages or among minorities it's kind of like when black men beat or kill or violate their women here in the ghetto, the police don't even investigate cuz it's "just those blacks"....women everywhere need to be protected as you say.
