Brutal Honor Killing in UK Tuesday, June 12, 2007

It is news like this that makes my blood boil.

The so-called honor-killing in the names of religion has to be one of the most barbaric, despicable act today.

What makes this particular case even more sickening is that fact that the 20 year old girl, Banaz Mahmod, was brutally murdered.

The father had planned the murder with his brother during a family dinner. He had also apparently bribed Banaz’s brother to kill her.

So why did this happen? Because the Banaz ended an “ending an abusive arranged marriage, becoming too westernised and falling in love with a man who did not come from their Iraqi village”.

This is simply sickening.
