Pakistan: Muslim Man Wipes Out Entire Family in Name of Honor – Including Children

A recent survey showed that 91 percent of honor killings worldwide are committed by
Muslims, and 84 percent of honor killings in the United States were done by Muslims. This
is no surprise.

A manual of Islamic law approved by Al-Azhar, the most respected authority
in Sunni Islam, stipulates that “retaliation is obligatory…against anyone who kills a human
being purely intentionally and without right.” However, “not subject to retaliation” is “a
father or mother (or their fathers or mothers) for killing their offspring, or offspring’s
offspring.” In other words, Islamic law sets no penalty for a parent who kills his child.
Also, the legal codes of Jordan, Syria, and other Muslim countries have substantially
reduced penalties for honor murders as compared to other murders, and Islamic clerics have
resisted efforts to stiffen penalties for honor killings. (source)
