There is no honor in suspicions. Honor is in the truth alone.

Horrendous murder sanctioned by tribal custom that entitles males in charge and controls of their female members upon whom the family's "honour" rests. No, Taj Ahmad. It's not a tragedy. It's not a question of trust and open mindedness. It's about male dominance and ownership of female. It will continue until women gain full equality with men, and freedom and dignity as individuals, and protection under the law.

No such thing as Honour Killings, this is MURDER. Last week a couple were jailed for life in UK for killing their Daughter. When are these people going to learn, we left that sort of World hundreds of years ago.

There is no punishment for honor killing in Pakistan.Under the Islamic law family can forgive them.What a stone age law

What a shameful tragedy and act by head of family, the father and his two sons killed mother and daughter in the name of honour. What kind of honor killing is this, can anyone proved it? Remember, no married women and unmarried girls can ever take such steps in their lives, this is all cuased by misunderstanding or confusion, we should all keep our mind free from all suspicious thinking and trust our wives, daughters with open heart and mind.
