    A cell phone video made 6 years ago shows 5 girls / young women laughing and clapping for a party. The girls disappeared and central authorities suspect they were murdered for 'Honor' but village elders, religious leaders and next of kin are keeping quiet so the authorities aren't able to find their bodies.

    The women were tortured / gruesomely killed.

    Hard to judge because it's a different culture. The Christian crusades were very gruesome also

    We should pull out of Afghanistan, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, etc. and only support NGO efforts aimed at education and reducing poverty. Those places are fucked. No support for the governments, no business deals, nothing.

    Pakistan is an ally of America. Ponder why.

    The US gives financial and technical aid to Pakistani farmers to help them increase their crop yield and resist diseases etc.. The US is trying to hep them out of poverty , partly to deny extremists and militant groups foot soldiers.

    The problem is while the US tries to help, Pakistani feudal landowners and elite are busy trying to keep poor farmers and laborers in indentured servitude and suppressed. Pakistan is 1 of the top Slave holding nations.

    So, this was simply because they were caught on video dancing in the same room as a guy? These people still live in the dark ages, and that behavior is the most criminal possible.

    Its not only about poverty though. In India one fo their most economically developed states, Haryana, is notorious for honor killings among the upper caste.

    Which brings me to my next point, that honor killings aren't all about Islam either. Its very common in India and in fact one of the states with the lowest incidents of honor killings also happens to be the state with the largest Muslim minority. Which is not to say its because of the Muslims that there are no honor killings but rather that they're presence isn't necessarily increasing it.

    Pakistan shares a lot with India's pre-Islamic culture. Honor killings are the result of extreme honor cultures and you don't necessarily need Islam for that.

    this is being held up as representative of muslims, when the whole story states that even in deepest darkest pakistan, this is an atypical story, and there is a new law in place to make sure this kind of thing doesnt happen.

    digging up obscure atypical stories to vilify a world religion is weak, and so is this thread.
