*Perspective written by Faarieya [P]

‘Honour Killing’ is the killing of a family member due to belief that the victim has shamefully disgraced the member’s status and has caused a stain on the family’s honour. This can be due to love marriage, being in a relationship disapproved by relatives or interacting with the opposite gender without consent of family members or customs. Honour killing also takes place on those poor individuals who become the victim of rape or those who are deemed unfit to maintain the family’s standing and grade.

Nevertheless, in my profession, I witness many taking an allegiance and oath of saving lives under any circumstance every single day and I also see many firmly agreeing that they will save their patient’s life without giving regards to creed, colour, faith or ethnic backgrounds.

I too have taken this oath and I too strictly adhere to it.

However, today, I fear turning the TV on because I do not want to hear another agony, another mother crying; another nation mourning the loss of its self-value because members of its nation have taken lives of the daughters of the their nation ONLY because the family deemed it right to protect the respect of their family name, which magically gets increased if the father and sons brutally kill the daughter of the family.

Needless to say, I am thankful for being born in a family which respects itself and every family member , not by the consent of others but by the happiness of every individual member. Sadly, not many are as lucky as me. Farzana Parveen is part of the many poor individuals born and raised to be violently murdered in front of the nation, as on-lookers mock the situation and see a horror film without paying a cinema

This formality which is so sick and disgusting to describe has taken an up rise in today’s society, especially in India and Pakistan.

Islam has laid so much emphasis on respecting daughters, wives, sisters and women in general but these so called ‘scholars’ of Islam have made a mockery out of the religion of Islam, destroying its beauty every day and thus causing those who wish to so desperately maintain its peace, to be victims of
prejudice and hate.

The verse mentioned above clearly outlines that killing even a single person is like as if one has killed the whole of humanity. No expectations. Still these corrupt mind, illiterate, money making, blood suckers only want to make religion and scriptures according to their own wants and needs . As a result, they tend to influence the mind of sensitive people, who end up destroying the  Islam they never knew.

Human Rights Watch defines « honour killings » as follows: Honour killings are acts of vengeance, usually death, committed by male family members against female family members, who are held to have brought dishonour upon the family. A woman can be targeted by (individuals within) her family for a variety of reasons, including: refusing to enter into an arranged marriage, being the victim of a sexual assault, seeking a divorce—even from an abusive husband—or (allegedly) committing adultery. The mere perception that a
woman has behaved in a way that « dishonours » her family is sufficient to trigger an attack on her life.1 It is a sad disease which is spreading in today’s world.

20 members, TWENTY members! Stood outside Lahore High court and murdered a pregnant woman, killing alongside the poor woman, a child who had not even entered this world. Police said “about 20 members of the family started attacking Farzana Parveen, and her husband Mohammad Iqbal, with sticks and bricks as they waited for the high court to open on Tuesday afternoon.” Sadly, the police also attacked the poor woman by not stopping the horrendous act and acted as stander bys, hoping to be entertained by seeing someone bleed to death.

Washington Post wrote on this sad case study that: “What happened in Lahore on Tuesday seems different. It wasn’t in a remote village in Pakistan, neither was it in the middle of the night. Parveen was killed in broad daylight, in the presence of several bystanders, in front of the top court in the second largest city in Pakistan.”

The country has not caused the end of honour killings, but has successfully defamed the name of a country which already had so much spots and scratches on its name. This disease needs to be cured before it’s too late…!

We hope and pray that Pakistan raises its standards and sees that what it is doing is terrible.

Killing innocent people will never benefit or increase the status of the country. Allah pardon them for their mistakes and may The Almighty bring sense in to their minds. Ameen.
