Afghan couple killed or should I say murdered for eloping. That is the headline. An 18 year old woman was forced to marry a man against her wishes and because she sort to be with her 19 year old lover was taken out in the streets by family and neighbours and shot in public. This is in the name of honour and religion.
What is honour and religion when murder becomes acceptable? It is not acceptable for any reason to murder.
What type of honour is it when killing is the answer and what sort of religion or culture where murder is better than acceptance.
These outdated practices need to be stopped and only fuels the need for the end of religion and the introduction to equality and freedom.
