Honor and islam are bound.

Reader comment on item: The Deceits of Bridges TV

Submitted by Anne-Marie Delcambre (France), Feb 25, 2009 at 12:29

The practise of honor killing has no sanction in the Qur'an....However there is no concept of dignity, love and equality for women in Qur'an.

The honor killing has to do with Islam : wife beating, sharia discrimination....

Misha was a Saudi Arabian Princess who was executed, in 1977, at the age of 19. Under sharia law, adultery is punishable by death, and death ..by stoning at that.

HONOR AND ISLAM ARE INEXTRICABLY BOUND.
