Why do families kill their daughters?

The stoning to death of a pregnant Pakistani woman by her own family has thrust the issue of so-called honour killings into the spotlight that is the killing of a member of a family who is perceived to have brought dishonour upon relatives.
the most common reasons are that the victim:
  • refused to enter into an arranged marriage
  • was the victim of a sexual assault or rape
  • had sexual relations outside marriage, even if only alleged
this can be carried out for more trivial reasons, like dressing in a way deemed inappropriate or displaying behaviour seen as disobedient


The idea that a murder can be honourable is believed to come from tribal customs where an allegation against a woman can be enough to defile a family's reputation - the idea that "a life without honour is not worth living". I think that we should not kill woman. if we keep killing woman the number of woman will decrease and the reproduce rate will also decrease.
