As you can see in the embedded report below, A pregnant Muslim woman was set ablaze by her family for allegedly marrying a Dalit man in Karnataka.
Every year women and girls all over the Middle East, Asia and Africa are burned, beaten, or stabbed to death by family members because they are seen as having transgressed social codes of “honor.”
It is estimated that 5,000 women are murdered each year by their families in so called “honor killings”.
The real number of women and girls who are murdered in honor killings is unknown as most murders are reported as accidents.
According to Islamic tradition, the “honor” of the entire family is measured by women’s behavior. Any action that may be perceived as harming the family’s honor may cost the woman her life.
In other words, a woman is required not only to obey Islam including its strict codes of modesty but also to completely obey her male (guardians husband, father, brother and even uncle).
