Irshad Manji speaks about Honor Killings

with 2 comments

From The Augean Stables:

Manji explained that in Middle Eastern tribal traditions, women are the carriers of culture. Therefore, their lives and bodies do not belong to them, but to their family, tribe, or nation. If she acts in such a way that brings disrepute or dishonor upon herself, she is actually defaming her nation. As such, her punishment must be serious enough for the crime of dishonoring the nation.

Also read the comments: they are worth it.
