ISLAMABAD — At least 943 Pakistani women and girls were murdered last year for allegedly defaming their family's honour, the country's leading human
rights group said Thursday.
The statistics highlight the growing scale of violence suffered by many women in conservative Muslim Pakistan, where they are frequently treated as
second-class citizens and there is no law against domestic violence.
. . .
"At least 943 women were killed in the name of honour, of which 93 were minors," wrote the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan in its annual
Paraphrased additional bits of info:
--only 20 out of 943 received any medical help before death
--"Brothers" or "husbands" did most of the exterminating
(Doesn't fit my definition of "brothers" or "husbands.")
More details here:
Over 900 Pakistani women were killed last year in the name of honour for allegedly shaming their families while nearly 4,500 others were the target of
domestic violence, the country's top rights watchdog said in a report today.
. . .
The murderers in 180 cases were brothers of the victim and the husband in 226 cases. A majority of the women killed - 557 - were married.
Before being killed with firearms and blunt weapons, at least 19 women were raped while 12 were gang raped, the report said.
I'm sure the apologists for the RO Bloody Pieces will be along shortly . . .
Perhaps they will be able to explain how it is that most other religions do NOT have such a track record of murder and mayhem of more or less innocent
Or maybe they will be able to explain how it is that women in the ROBP deserve to be treated worse than pig poo.
Or maybe they will be able to explain how it is that men in the ROBP are automatically judge, jury and executioners and women are automatically lower
Or maybe they will be able to explain how the men can walk down the street holding their heads up at all after such magnificently munificent
mob-mentality cowardly acts.
Or maybe they will be able to explain how it is that such a ROBP is supposed to be attractive to the least degree to anyone with any awareness of
life, freedom, civil and human rights above the awareness of a blind lobotomized . . . .
Or perhaps they can explain how it is that the SUPER RATIONALIZATION MACHINE of the millenia so glibly glosses over such habits, obsessions and
customs as "cultural artifacts" having nothing to do with religion.
Or perhaps they can explain on what basis the 'modern' world is supposed to consider such a philosophical, religious, cultural system to be suitable
to show itself; merit the right to show itself on the modern world stage to any degree whatsoever--as opposed to hiding in the deepest of caves in
shame for such hellish genocidal blood lust.
Or maybe they can explain how it's only a small minority of folks who perpetrate such horrors . . . when the majority merely look on, applaud or walk
on by on the other side of the street pretending no responsibility for such hideousness. Is not the whole culture a unit? Are not the cheering bloody
handed Imams supported by the monies from all?
I realize that being a Christian, I have no "right" to cast aspersions in the least on such a long tradition of bloodiness and trashing of women. If a
culture or philosophy or religion or a Nation decide that's what women are for, how can I possibly have the audacity to disagree.
Besides . . . so what if 1.X billion people want to live in the Dark Ages and drag the world down their dark hole with them. How dare I even have an
What was I thinking.
I guess my sickened revulsion flowed out my fingers before I could put my mind in gear.
