Ghor province, Afghanistan: Three honor killings in the last three weeks, a post from JihadWatch.org, with comments

A 19-year-old shot by her husband’s family after he claimed she wasn’t a virgin. An 18-year-old was killed with her mother because of suspicion she had had an abortion. And a 17-year-old killed and burned when she tried to escape from a forced marriage. Our Observer in Ghor province, Afghanistan, brings us three stories of honour killings from the last three weeks

More human carnage, adding to the pile of female victims brutalized in the name of Islam. The Islamic State is routinely described as an aberration of Islam, but the same brutalities are practiced in Muslim countries around the world. Saudi Arabia and Qatar were discovered to be funding the Islamic State while “sex slaves captured by ISIS terrorists are being sold at sickening auctions in Saudi Arabia.” The report below highlights Afghanistan, but abuse and subjugation of women is routine in Muslim countries.

People in Afghanistan talk about women who are killed in honour killings. But they don’t talk about the women who choose to end their lives themselves because they are living in situations they can’t bear. It is very common for women to commit suicide by eating rat poison or setting fire to themselves.

The dead silence of leftist feminists in the face of the global crisis of Sharia-sanctioned brutality against women and young girls is sickening.

“The place in Afghanistan where it’s “easy to kill women”, by Masouma Anvari, France 24, April 13, 2017:

A 19-year-old shot by her husband’s family after he claimed she wasn’t a virgin. An 18-year-old was killed with her mother because of suspicion she had had an abortion. And a 17-year-old killed and burned when she tried to escape from a forced marriage. Our Observer in Ghor province, Afghanistan, brings us three stories of honour killings from the last three weeks.

Ghor is a remote mountain province 400 km west of the capital Kabul. The Taliban and other armed groups are active, and state control is weak. It’s also one of the least-developed provinces in Afghanistan: child marriage is common, and “honour killings” – often women trying to flee marriages they were forced into – are frequent.

According to Afghan law, girls must be 16 years old to marry, and boys 18. But our Observer says that in the remote villages of Ghor, the law is seldom respected. The marriage of a 6-year-old girl to a 55-year mullah in the province 2016 provoked international outrage.

“You see how easy it is to kill women here”

Masooma Anwari, a longtime women’s rights activist, is also head of women’s affairs in the province, a position appointed by the central government in Kabul.

About three weeks ago in Shahrak district, a 19-year-old girl called Bibigol was shot by her husband and his family. She was forced to marry a boy her age five years ago; he was 13 at the time, she was 14. Because they were children, they didn’t have sexual intercourse. Then three weeks ago her husband wanted to have sex with her for the first time. He claimed that she wasn’t a virgin. After arguments between the two families, tribal leaders ordered her to be shot. She was executed in cold blood on a hillside.

Then on April 3 activists in the province published photographs on Facebook showing the burned bodies of a woman and a man. The bodies had been discovered in a ravine near a village in the province’s Du Layna district.

The photos show the burned body of a young woman named Soraya. She was 17 years old, and lived in Du Layna. She ran away with a male cousin and while they were fleeing they killed her husband. The couple went to the house of Soraya’s mother in another village. But her husband’s brothers followed them and killed all three of them to avenge their family’s honour – Soraya, her cousin, and her mother. They burned Soraya’s body afterwards. We asked the police to arrest the husband’s brothers, but they said it was impossible because they fled to territory under control of the Taliban. The police said there was nothing they could do.

And then, just four days ago, an unmarried girl called Mahansar, who was about 18, was killed along with her mother Tabarrok, 45, on the orders of tribal leaders, also in the Dawlat Yar district. They claimed she had got pregnant and had had an abortion. But there’s no sign she was even pregnant. You see how easy it is to kill women here.

“People think killers are defending their honour”

Ghor is a no man’s land. People are poor and not educated, and the culture of violence and weapons is well-established. People live in fear – in fear of the powerful tribal leaders, who are often involved in the drug trade, and the Taliban. The police are ineffective and just think about getting more money.

It’s unsafe for everyone, but especially for women. Many women here were forced into marriages when they were still children – as early as 10 years old; and sometimes even younger. When they get older they want to run away from the miserable life they were forced into. And if they try they often end up becoming victims of honour killings by male members of their tribe. People don’t see these men as criminals: they accept that they are defending their family’s honour. Also, it’s easy for the perpetrators to find shelter in the Taliban regions, where the police can’t arrest them.

People in Afghanistan talk about women who are killed in honour killings. But they don’t talk about the women who choose to end their lives themselves because they are living in situations they can’t bear. It is very common for women to commit suicide by eating rat poison or setting fire to themselves….

    Islam’s honor-shame culture demands the restoration of lost male ‘honor’ by the shedding of blood.

    A perverse logic sets in when a family member disobeys or disagrees with the patriarch: The patriarch claims the right to make all decision over his household by divine right… as a kind despot. Resisting the patriarch’s will seen as resisting the will of Allah. Whoever resists Allah is a bad Muslim. A bad Muslim should be punished as an example. Muslim patriarchs ‘cull’ bad Muslims in the family in the same way as a cattleman culls a rogue, dangerous, disobedient animal or as a farmer pulls weeds from among vegetables or spoiled fruit from a tree. There is little or no emotion about ‘culling’ bad Muslims in one’s family. They are kafirs at war with Islam and do not deserve to live.

    Once you understand the MIND OF ISLAM, you realize that IF THEY WILL DO THAT TO THEIR FAMILY MEMBERS, Muslim are capable of the WORST and CRUELEST GENOCIDES IMAGINABLE…and that is exactly what we see. ‘In the cause of Allah’, the end justifies the means. Jihad is amoral, but effective.

    Nothing honourable about murder, especially for the pathetic reasons Muslims dredge up. It will be interesting to see how feminists respond when it is their turn to submit to Sharia law. I suggest every advocate for Islam spend a few weeks in the tribal areas of Pakistan or Afghanistan. If they don’t get themselves killed it should be most enlightening.

      Monty, your Western morality is seen as perverted and rebellious by Muslims. Removing a dirty KAFIR from your family glorifies Islam and is the JUSTICE of Allah.

      WHO ARE YOU to argue against Allah’s will?

      Though many Muslims now live in the West, they still bring the Honor-Shame Paradigm with them. Honor is restored to a Muslim through the shedding of blood. No kafir is ‘innocent’. All kafirs deserve to be killed because they reject Mohammed.

        I’ve always thought that men killing women to get their honor back is such a cowardly act. It’s the ultimate Good-Ole-Boys-Club…”because we are stronger than women we can abuse them as we like and then get rid of the evidence by trumping up charges against them and having them killed.”

        Cowards, every single one of them, to their everlasting shame.

There is little or no emotion about ‘culling’ bad Muslims out of one’s family. They are kafirs at war with Islam (harbis) and do not deserve to live. Moreover, Sharia law has no punishment for HONOR-KILLING. None.

    Once you understand the MIND OF ISLAM, you realize that IF THEY WILL DO THAT TO THEIR FAMILY MEMBERS, Muslim are capable of the WORST and CRUELEST GENOCIDES IMAGINABLE…and that is exactly what we see. ‘In the cause of Allah’, the end justifies the means. Jihad is amoral, but effective.

    The KAFIR DOCTRINE lies behind all HONOR-KILLINGS. Understand the KAFIR DOCTRINE and HONOR-KILLING becomes perfectly clear.

      I am behooved when I see women marching in the streets demanding the importation of these absolute savage, hostile insurgents into their western culture. These barbarians do not want their western culture with it’s woman’s rights interfering with their blood-lust mentality.

    Yes. A blow to the honour of a delusions of grandeur psychotic would have to hit them right where they live…. in the ego.

    That’s enough to make you wanna kill somebody.

    So this is what I’m expected to welcome into my neighborhood without concern. Girls are forced into marriage and then murdered when they find the courage to run. And then the murderer is praised as defending the family honor! A muslim girl dates a non-muslim and get’s her ears and nose cut off or acid in the face. But a muslim man can rape, beat, or divorce a woman on a whim and that’s okay. What? you don’t have 4 witnesses to that rape? Stone her! Bizarre and insane. The koran teaches male superiorty and islamic culture has morphed that male chauvinism into a brutal oppression of women. And we see how they’re bringing this filth to the west, Europe is our teacher.

    Minnesota is too kind for its own good. More and more I’m seeing our politicians and community leaders grandstanding for islam. Remember when Gov. Dayton admonished Minnesotans,

    “If you are that intolerant, if you are that much of a racist or a bigot, then find another state.”

    Would he ever say the same to muslims about their bigoted religion that inspires terror every day? lol, that needs no reply.

    My state is fast becoming the new islamic capital of America, mosques are popping up like poison mushrooms. Religious fascism has seeded and it will only bring more of this kind of terror. Women will suffer most, but we’ll all be damned. I don’t want to be murdered because I choose not to believe in a retarded and violent superstition. The entire culture of islam has lived a 1400 year quest to please a narcissistic demon. And I don’t believe for one second that Minnesota’s muslims are going to be any different when the sh*t hits the fan.

    When will I feel safe with muslims? When they become ex-muslims.

      Sorry Gov. Dayton but murder, rape, maiming and destroying other people’s lives are not racist issues. Preventing those things from happening to the citizens of your state is your responsibility and if you don’t live up to your oath of office and protect those citizens you will go down in history as a woos, a panderer and someone who thought more of political correctness than keeping his word. Get with the program.

        “Sorry Gov. Dayton but murder, rape, maiming and destroying other people’s lives are not racist issues.”

        Thanks for clarifying that good point, that commonsense truth is always conveniently overlooked by the left. Somehow caring about murder and terror for religion has become a racist issue for them. I suppose it’s because they can’t offer a reasoned response. The charge of racism is just a club to beat us over the head, like killing baby seals. Facts and reality don’t gel at all with their barbaric agenda, it’s all part of their blunt propaganda against our legitimate concerns. We’re treated like stupid children that don’t know better, telling us it’s a “religion of peace” despite 1400 years of jihad. Not all muslims are killers, they say, so that means we shouldn’t even address islam’s bigoted doctrine that inspires every manner of crime and oppression. The koran has some kind verses, we’re reminded, so the murderous and hateful ones should be ignored along with the terror they inspire. We’re told that islam is protected under religious freedom, even though islam’s primary mission is to destroy all other religions. We are constantly told that muslims are minority victims, yet it is us “infidels” who are terrorized and persecuted. To leftist/apologists truth is a lie and falsehood is reality. That’s their world view, but it ain’t ours. The good people of the world are fighting back against their retarded evil. Our democracy is infinitely better than the 7th century camel crap they pass off as divine truth.

        In the end we’ll win. But only because we listened to people like Spencer who speak the truth, and because we had the good sense to act on that truth.

    They can not be proud, Must feel very bad.
    Lots of men coming to Europe from Afghanistan. Males the majority in most muslim countries. because females are aborted and women killed if they try to escape.
    In Sweden men now are majority over women in fertile ages due to immigration of muslim men.
    UN should stop it. Europe and U.S.A. should not allow them in.
    Politicians forcing communities and cities to take in hundreds and thousands and to pay for them. Forced by law. Saying you become rich if you let an afghan male live in your home. You can see them almost everywhere in all of Sweden as well as other muslim females and males.
    Families here being paid and persuaded to accept in their homes. The muslim girls arriving, only allowed to leave their “countries” together with a male relative. ´
    Muslim males staying éxclusively with non Muslim families, while the muslim females exclusively in muslim families.
    Astonishing the circus is not being stopped. Lots wanting to stop but seems impossible to stop the madness. At least regarding Sweden.

    Lunatics, proud to model themselves on the lunatic that invented the sick perversion called Islam.

    Our future thanks to our brethren on the left who will tell you “that can never happen here” because they have led protected pampered lives. They live in an alternate reality where if you say it isn’t so then it simply isn’t so. Terrifying our future! We are going backwards in time to the Stone Age and being told to shut your racist mouth and march backwards by blithering idiots, and meglamaniacs, sort of a Bataan Death March, that’s what is happening now.

    But hey the supposed pay gap between men and women that’s the real issue, the thing we should most be concerned about. FGM, ok, women bagged up in public, ok, women being stoned, ok, women being beaten as a religious imperative, ok but by the gods equal pay that is the overriding issue! Ignorant, stupid, suicidal cows!

    PS: I believe in equality of women and do believe equal jobs = pay.
