honor killing or killing honor

Honour Killing or killing honour ?
By The Sindh Times – Mar 3, 2018
Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter

By: Jafar Mastoi

A family’s honour is not packed in their girl’s or woman’s body.None of woman or girl can bring dishonour to her family till they are forced to do some opposite wishes to be completed.Honour killing is a cultural issue not an Islamic issue.
When society imposes their decisions forcibly to their family’s women, they are the real bringer and responsible of dishonour to their family.She always plays a vigorous role from birth to death.Once she was family’s princess but she is considered a blot for her family after being dishonored.Shame killings may be a controlling procedure for bringing dishonour to the family but it is not an islamic way to control major rising problems.The alleged woman has remained no rights to go for appeal after the exposition of this bad deed.

Murders in the name of ‘honour’ cannot bring probity to the family again.Jirgas are disobeying the law of many countries.In really members of any societal jirga have also been alleged in those bad actions which can bring dis-honesty to the family but still have not been exposed.Jirgas are just the man-made social gathering of people from society for creating rigorous rules for their families.But members from jirgas just made some restrictions for the families of others.Laws they made are just for others but not for themselves.All perpetrators involved in the killing of the couple must be caught and sent to jail for their hanging ceremony.

Shame killings have become a tradition in the entire country.This is a production of the feudal system.A system where the public is henpecked of their feudal man and that feudal man proved a dangerous and disloyal man of society.Many of cases have been registered for ‘honour killing’ but the unregistered cases are more than those of registered.The culprit of killing a woman in the name of honour is also indicted in many of his own personal cases.Faults in the system have been gone far from their place of birth.The injuries to the system must be cured by some pious Ulema and human rights law experts of the country.The way the system has been operated is not going to the invincibility of the country.

Islamic law and jurisprudence cannot be a problem , it is a solution to the problems.Victims of shame killing are a woman , girl or man who violated the rules of society.In 20th century, a killer of victims spread the blood on his clothes and goes to public place by showing clothes to increase the honour.Is this so a physical practices to increasing the probity of family? I seem it a bizarre action of the culprit of killed victims.There is no mention of shame killing in Quran and Hadiths.It is also called the extra-legal punishment to the woman, but actually, Islam and religious authorities disagree the extra-legal punishments.Accountable members of jirgas use Islam to justify honour killing even though there is no support for honour killing in Islam.
