I don't want to be killed. I'm only 16

Retouched photo

Some days ago I've read about it for the first time. "honour killing". There was a photo of a very beautiful girl, 19, killed by her uncle and her brothers. Because she left her husband that beat her, turned back to her family and fall in love with an other Kurdish man. She kissed him in the street and other Kurdish man photographed it with his cell and sent the photo to her uncle.

Nonsense. But reality.

They say the killings of the women increase in UK from year to ear. But in Germany too.

The notice from today is about 16 years old girl living today in refuge. She came in UK to marry an 40 years old man, invalid.

"During the Islamic ceremony my dad was standing behind me with one hand on my shoulder and with his other hand he had a gun which was pointed at my back so that I didn't say 'no',"
"I haven't been back home since then. My brothers say that they want to take me back to Pakistan so they can kill me basically. They'll just pay the police there to keep quiet... I don't want to be killed. I'm only 16. I want to live my life." (Source)
Other story. The mother with 2 sons strangled the daughter. The most little son has seen it and did not want partecipate. But the mother wanted he do it too. They burried the girl in the garden.

Incredible. More incredible is the reaction of UK police in many cases if the girl flies from the house and goes to report about abuse. The police returns her to her family.

The state thought, the young persons that are burn in UK, will grow with other criteria, but nothing changes and the situation is really serious.

Yes, I know about it and know that all these terrible stories are real life, but I thought, the governments of civilized states can control the situation inside their own countries. The most terrible in all these stories is that seems the best parts of european laws are collapsing under exagerate european stupidity. The state that doesn't know protect itself is doomed to break down. I think.

  1. Unfortunately, nothing much surprises me about dishonor killings any more. Nonetheless, I find this dismaying.

  2. The 2 things surprizes me in the type of life in these countries (I lived in Caucasus and have seen it too)

    1/ not only that the life of a woman counts nothing there -it was in Europe too, but women knew to change the situation about a century ago.

    2/ I think, the life of a human being has zero value there generally. They speak sooo much about religion, they are sooooo faithful. And they kill for any occasion, anything can be a ground to kill. Honour, religion are nothing else as cause to kill.

    I don't know about muslim religion too much, sincerely, but I don't think ANY God allows and calls to kill.

  3. Oh! That's what a man with a cloudy mind does! Kill!

  4. You are right, Footiam. I wonder, why these countries are covered completely with black clouds?

    One girl wrote me, there are many cases of "honour killings" in Italy too. I've never heard about it. I heard only about mutilations of femmenile organs -and they are so numerous that they wrote about it for different times. And government wanted eliminate this practice.
