I used to work with this guy from sierra leone, who said that he had been promised to some chick back there back in the day but he had a girl here in the USA he planned to marry.

He took some vacation time - he said, to explain to his and her families just how things are.

When he got back, he had a bigass bandage on his neck.

Told us that when he was leaving town, his betrothed father-in-law tried to shoot him in the head, but only grazed his neck.

He did not think that this was a big deal, and felt that they would eventually get over it.

There are no statistics on the number of "honour" killings across India, but according to one recent study, hundreds of people are killed each year for falling in love or marrying against their families' wishes.

About 1% of the total murder rate, if you believe the graph on Wikipedia.

..and then they wrap it up with a huge song-and-dance number.

BBC articles aren't where I would go to get a good picture of India. The article says honor killings are common in India. Except they aren't. They do happen in places like the Alabama of India (Bihar state where this happened is the most backward laughed-at state). None whatsover in many other states and some/random ones in a few others.

Keep this story in mind the next time you hear of some horrible atrocity in Pakistan or Afghanistan and are tempted to snort and say something like "The religion of peace, indeed" As this article shows, ignorant, backwards behavoir isn't comfined to one religion. It tribalism and ignorance that are to blame, not a particular religion. IS it really any suprised that where people's lives seem stuck in a 4-500 year time warp, that their attititudes and morals seem to be too?

At least India knows exactly what to do with those scum. They're rightly put to death once found.

Dear backwoods farkwads,

If you kill your own children, you have no honor.

Sincerely,

Honorable people everywhere

My S O has a strong dislike, and mistrust of Indian, or what she calls them; red people. If I joke about blacks, messicans, etc she gets mad at me, but she hates "red" people. I don't get it. The woman I love is racist toward leprosy having, carryout owning, curry smelling, forehead dotted, river shiatters. Seems like a double standard to me.

Except it is common enough that the Indian government sees it as a big problem. Is Times of India a preferable source?

By extension that would work out to about 325 or so a year if their population were equal to that of the US' and if there were 325 "honor murders" in the US a year, I think we'd consider that a pretty big farking deal, a got-dammned epidemic in fact

Accidental traffic death is the same as ritual murder of children.

Got it.

both are preventable deaths caused by humans resulting from unnecessary actions. no one cares about traffic death here because to solve it is expensive and inconvenient. honor murder is only outrageous to you because it is foreign to you an does not inconvenience your daily routine. a baby killed in a 4 car pile up cause your daughter was on her cell phone should be about the same really. got it.

One is a deliberate act. The other is not.

You are an asshat justifying the murder of children, and are therefore less than human yourself.

I'd have you euthanized for the betterment of all mankind.

i'm not justifiying it, im just saying honor killing is less of a problem than almost every other form of preventable death that we accept on an hourly and daily basis. i dont kill for honor or drive a car so you are more likely the asshole since i bet you are part of the risk of at least one set.

Certainly you are. You equate the two, which is palpably absurd.

Everyone dies of something. Some people die in automobile accidents. That is horrible, but it is inevitable. Accidents happen.

Deliberately killing children is obscene. If it happens on a regular basis then you have a legitimate problem.

Justifying that is even more obscene.

Jeebus Tapdancing Keeryst, one is a cold-blooded (or hot-blooded) murder of family members for "honor," the other is a FARKING ACCIDENT AND NOT INTENTIONAL.

If even a significant percentage of traffic accidents were intentional acts of aggression and domination then you might have a point - but they're not, so you don't.

/please tell me I just got trolled and there's not actually people out there who can put together a coherent sentence and still think like that

auto accident death is inevitable ? really? you dont think we possess the knowledge or natural resources to build all automobiles to NASCAR spec ? walk away from a wreck at 200 MPH ? so, in fact, every car let off a modern mass production assembly line is essentially criminal negligence and if you take one on the road with child passengers you are deliberately risking their lives, (attempted manslaughter ?) which is also obscene but, i know. it would cost a few bucks to fix this so we should just continue to lose many thousands and thousands of lives per year and go crazy over a few people shot every year by the mentally ill. which is more deserving of outrage again ?

If I ever have a dog, I'm naming him Feydeau. If it's a cat, Poussin.

100% agreement. It's all degenerate tribal redneckish culture, religion his little to do with it.

Interesting thing in Europe is in the middle ages there was a long struggle between the church and tribal chiefs over this sort of thing. With the Church backing the rights of people to decide who to marry over their families and tribes. (Controlling peoples access to sex is one of the major ways you can control people) One can think sometimes of European history as a 2000 year struggle to break the backs of the tribal allegiances. Every time that falters, there is horrific bloodshed. Part of the reason the middle east is messed up is the Ottomans played up tribal conflicts as a way of keeping control.
