Thanks Dr. Pipes,

I had heard segments of this murder, on the news stations, but never fully understood the entire picture with other wives and their abuses. No wonder other women fled for their lives. I have heard that this sort of honor killing is justified in the Muslim countries, but in America we have laws against this so-called barbarianism.

This man is a real threat to society and its to bad Aasiya didn't flee for her life, but stayed for her children. Its everybody's duty to report any domestic violence before it becomes a full fledged murder....This behavior should never be ignored by law enforcement or even innocent by-standers.

Submitting....
