More indication of the widespread acceptance of honor killing in Muslim countries — while the world continues to look the other way, and no one calls upon Islamic communities in the West to do anything about this, despite the fact that we have already seen honor killings in the U.S.
LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) has declared murder to save a woman’s honour not a crime, a private TV channel reported on Thursday. According to the channel, Justice Asif Saeed Khosa ruled this while hearing a murder case. The court acquitted Ghulam Nabi and his son Iftikhar, saying murder to save a woman’s honour was not a crime. The accused had killed one Yasin while saving a female relative’s honour. The trial court sentenced them to 10 years” imprisonment but the LHC acquitted them.
