Pakistani Man "Honor" Kills Two Sisters for Disobedience

Think about this for a moment. Honor killings are obviously accepted by many people in the Muslim world. Many of these Muslims immigrate to the West. When they get here, we're told that it's "racist," "bigoted," and "Islamophobic" to challenge their cultural views. And now honor killings are on the rise in the West. Anyone surprised?

SARGODHA, PAKISTAN--Kot Momin police have registered a murder case against a man accused of killing his two sisters after they were declared kari by a jirga.

Investigation Officer SI Rab Nawaz said a team had been formed to arrest the suspect, Farman, 27, who had fled the area after killing his sisters – Kahkshan, 20, and Afshan, 24. He said the FIR had been registered on a complaint filed by Rana Qadeer, father of the deceased girls. The bodies had been sent for a post mortem examination.

Police said the jirga had been held after the two girls had returned home from Lahore over a week ago.

He quoted the family as saying that they had persuaded the girls to return by assuring them of their safety. But, he said, they later organised a jirga which decided that it was a matter of honour and pardoning the deceased would bring disgrace to the family. The women were then strangled by their brother on directives of the jirga at their home in Mohllah Dak-Khana.

Police said the two women had fled home and moved to Lahore over a month ago. They said there was no information about the women’s motive behind fleeing home or the person with whom they stayed in Lahore.

They said the family had sought intervention of their contacts in Lahore to persuade the women to return home.

Talking to The Express Tribune, Imran, a cousin of the deceased women, justified their killing.

He said the women had deserved the punishment for showing disobedience to elders. He said everyone in the family was unanimous in declaring them kari. (Source)

A bit Off-Topic... but maybe it will have something to do with "honor killings" in the future.

In Berlin a young muslim was killed in a fight by a young german guy - in a clear act of self defence. After a brawl about a football on a playing ground, a few "immigrants" called their brothers and cousins, so that they could beat up the 2 germans, that won the first contact. After some time 20 people gathered at the house of one of the germans, all armed with knives and other stuff and started to throw stones at the house and threatened him. When he came out (armed with a knife) they tried to beat him up and in that fight he stabbed one of the attackers into the heart. He should have waited in the house for the police, but still it was a clear act of self-defence, as the police also stated.

Well... now look at this picture an tell me it looks like good old germany ;)

almost 3000 People gathered at his funeral an already many voices are heard about "revenge" and that it will have consequences. The police already tries to calm everything down and sends people to the families to explain them the german laws and to prevent any uprising rumors.
I really hope this will cool down again, but some people (even spokesman from the police) fear that it might end up in a riot, like in Paris or other cities in the past years.

If you wish, i can translate the article linked to the photo
