Double honor killing in India: Muslim mothers murder daughters for marrying Hindus
Posted by The Mindset on May 16, 2011
What happens when a Muslim womam marry/wants to marry a non-Muslims man (read Hindu here). Two possibilities are there – either the Hindu man is killed or else the Muslim woman is killed.
In NO case they can marry.
So when a Muslim man marry a Hindu girl it’s all about “Communal harmony”, “Peace within Society” or “National Integration” or in the least case it is about “Love”.
But when the direction of the “Love” changes all Hell broke.
In the recent case two Muslim girls were killed by their mothers for marrying Kaffir-Hindu men – which is absolutely not allowed in Islam.
Two Muslim women in an Uttar Pradesh town, 40 km east of Delhi, allegedly killed their daughters because they had eloped and married migrant Bihari Hindu labourers, police said.The victims had sought police protection after they returned to their homes in Baghpat earlier this week, but the subdivisional magistrate sent them home to reconcile with their mothers.
On Wednesday night, Khatun and Subrato, both of whom are widows, allegedly tied their daughters, 19-year-old Zahida and 26-year-old Husna, to cots and threw a rope around their necks. They then held the girls down and tightened the noose until the victims suffocated to death, police said.
Khatun and Subrato have been arrested. A third woman called Momina, their neighbour in Baghpat’s Muslim-dominated Mughalpura area, who allegedly helped them commit the murders, is on the run.
“We killed them because they had brought shame to our community. How could they elope with Hindus? They deserved to die. We have no remorse,” Khatun and Subrato said Friday….
As for those who think ‘how a woman can do this(murder)’ – let me tell you. The Muslim woman are no short of man.
Now for the WHY part.
As I have said earlier also that if you want to understand Muslims you will have to under stand Quran.
So this is what is in Quran over inter-faith marriage:
1. Muslim men can marry women from people of book i.e. Christians and Jews and of course Muslim women.
2. Muslim women can not marry men from other religions(infidels); it is forbidden (haram).
In any case any children born of a Muslim woman should be brought up as Muslims – NOT as non-Muslims.
And here are the verses which explains the honor killin-
2:221 (Yusuf Ali): Do not marry unbelieving women (idolaters), until they believe: A slave woman who believes is better than an unbelieving woman, even though she allures you. Nor marry (your girls) to unbelievers until they believe: A man slave who believes is better than an unbeliever, even though he allures you……….
5:005 (Yusuf Ali): ……(Lawful unto you in marriage) are (not only) chaste women who are believers, but chaste women among the People of the Book, [Christians and Jews] revealed before your time,- when ye give them their due dowers, and desire chastity, not lewdness, nor secret intrigues if any one rejects faith, fruitless is his work, and in the Hereafter he will be in the ranks of those who have lost (all spiritual good).
Quran is the final word for Muslims. Allah’s words, so it can’t go wrong and what’s written there must be obeyed.
Islam sanctions honor killing:-
This tradition has been narrated by the game authority (Yazid b. Hurmus) through a different chain of transmitters with the following difference in the elucidation of one of the points raised by Najda in his letter to Ibn Abas: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) used not to kill the children, so thou shouldst not kill them unless you could know what Khadir had known about the child he killed, or you could distinguish between a child who would grow up to he a believer (and a child who would grow up to be a non-believer), so that you killed the (prospective) non-believer and left the (prospective) believer aside.
Which means that if you know that your children will grow up to become a disbelievers then you must kill them.
This is the reason why honor killing is so common in Islamic Countries and there is no law to protect the victim against it.
One of the example of widespread honor killing is that of “Karo-Kari” in Pakistan. Each year nearly 10,000 women are killed by their fathers, brothers, husbands or sons for bringing ‘dishonour’ to the family.
