Muslims commit 91 percent of honor killings worldwide. The Palestinian Authority gives pardons or suspended sentences for honor murders. Iraqi women have asked for tougher sentences for Islamic honor murderers, who get off lightly now. Syria in 2009 scrapped a law limiting the length of sentences for honor killings, but “the new law says a man can still benefit from extenuating circumstances in crimes of passion or honour ‘provided he serves a prison term of no less than two years in the case of killing.’” And in 2003 the Jordanian Parliament voted down on Islamic grounds a provision designed to stiffen penalties for honor killings. Al-Jazeera reported that “Islamists and conservatives said the laws violated religious traditions and would destroy families and values.”

Until the encouragement Islamic law gives to honor killing is acknowledged and confronted, more women will suffer.

“Canadian Islam convert strangled in honour killing: Cops,” by Brad Hunter, Toronto Sun, January 18, 2019 (thanks to M.):

A Canadian woman who converted to Islam was murdered in an honour killing investigators say was made to look like a suicide.

According to Pakistan’s Express News, Safia Nasir, 40, was killed sometime over the past week.

So far, it isn’t known what her pre-conversion name was or where she was from in Canada. She reportedly married a man from Pakistan and lived with him in the Samnabad area.

What is known is that she converted a number of years ago and had a nine-month-old child.

Cops were called and told that Nasir had committed suicide by hanging.
