I was watching a panorama documentary called 'britain's crimes of horror' on bbc 1 earlier and it got me thinking. Honour killing is commonly associated with the asian and arab community, I haven't heard of any such stories among our community. So my question to you is, does honour killing just not exist in the somali community or is this a hidden crime that is swept under the carpet?

I don't think there is such a thing as honor killing in Somali society, we're generally more accepting, I think? even though some folk might not be very pleased with the idea of their daughters marrying outside the community. In short there is no hidden crime in our community, I hope? and If someone(Somali) has been taking part in killing innocent gabdho, step forward and explain your reason. YOU MURDERER

I'm out.

I don't think it exists in the West yet, Somalis are their own detectives and I don't think a family would be able to hide it. Back home though, it's probably becoming a problem.

we somalis don't really preserve our culture like those south asians. Have you seen south asians girls marrying foreigners? Well i haven't seen them yet. I think this because their families will disown them thus they usually marry their men. Arabs are also very strict. I know this arab girl who married afgahan man and her family disowned her and treatened to kill her. Somalis have very loose culture. But no should ever be killed by honour killing rejection/disowning is enough to destroy her.

@ the Op. Like many other taboos i think it's hidden frm view so one is tempted to feel it does not exist but i'm sure it does

Don't just make assumptions, you need to have proof or at-least name a few case were there was an attempt. I don't think it's in our nature as Somalis to kill for honor.

OK. Ninka haduu diley naagtiisa meydka baa caden u ah. Laakiin hadii la radinayey naagta taas macnaheedu waa weli wee nooshahay. Marka honor killing maaha.

Well, a husband killing his wife is not technically honour killing. It's about family members doing it to their own flesh and blood. Somalis are the best snitchers in the world, there's no carpet for things like these.

Ninkeeda haduu diley honor killing looma yaqaano. Honor killing waxaa la odhan lahaa haduu ninka diley walaalkeed ama abeheed, ama adeerkeed, ama abtigeed etc...ahan lahaa, sababta loo dileyna aay tahay ineey reerka sharaftiisa dishey. Nac-nacda jooji.

Teeda kale, xitaa hadii meydka la heley maahan honor killing. Sababtuna waxe tahey ninkeeda baa diley marka taa waa domestic violence. Laakiin haduu walaalkeed, aabeheed and reerki dhaley ey dileen then waa honor killing.

was thinking this too! I don't think it happens. when a girl does things her parents don't approve of, they often just send them to Somalia.

Waxaa isku qaladey domestic violence iyo honour killing. Ninka xaaskiisa dila it doesn't matter what reason uu idiley waa domestic violence not honour killing. Laakiin the honour killing waa marka blood family ay dilaan gabadhooda. Hada ma fahamate? I hope so.

LOL Crystal. Wa fahmay but but in anycase it's something that needs in shaaca laga qaado and what do you call marka gabar yar nin aabeheed le'eg lasiiyo oo waliba reerka ninka ay ku shaqaystaan marka gabadhu isgubto at the tender age of thirteen there are many cases in the middle east places like Iraq and Afghanistan so somalis should avoid at all cost the likes of that happening in our community

Well I've seen it myself, young girls being given away to men older than their fathers. This is something that does happen in our culture, although it usually occurs back home. Times are changing and hopefully more people will see the error of their ways, and stop treating their daughters like personal possessions. This is by no means a common practice and takes place only occasionally.

I've even heard this man tht gave his daughter away because he was in debt to the the man that he owed money to as a way of paying his debt off..lol and not to mention that it's boderline peadophilic to give girls away as young as nine.

I think we don't have that. If we had it we would heard it. We hear every thing including member of your clan killing another guy from different clan in somewhere between Gud Cusbo and quracley how come we don't hear next door girl being killed. I am sure we don't have that.
