Rape?🙄
#HathrasTruth Truth is far from what #MSM spreading..

Seems Girl's brother/mother framed people, for older animosity with Boy's family. Many accused not even present during 'alleged' crime'.

#Kathua all over again? A @BJP4UP Dalit-MP stoking the fire?🤔

#HathrasTruth Multiple test-reports(Hathras & Delhi's Safdarjung Hospital) confirm "NO RAPE" on #HathrasGirl. Matter was given rape-twist by @INCIndia 4 political-mileage as they coerced girl's family-members to LIE.

Will @Uppolice take action against Congress leaders involved? Image

How dare anyone criticize the religion of peace when it strikes or to criticize its followers & sympathizers. After all they're following Islam's commandments to a T.

#RominaAshrafi, 13 yrs old, was beheaded by her father (by a sickle) b/c she was dating a "30+ older man". 1/6
If a father agrees that it's immoral that his daughter dates, according to Islamic laws he can kill her to defend the family's honor. If he is arrested, the same laws dictates that the brother can extend forgiveness so the father can go free. 2/6

Let's say that the articles were not manipulated 4 the rest of the civilized world & were actually accurate, and let's assume she was dating an "older man", this would make her a victim of pedophilia, so why isn't the pedophile punished?

well, here is why... 3/6

In the 1st week of May 2020,I was contacted by a friend from ex-FATA about the increased honor killings in the region. I was informed that 2women& a man were killed in Lwargai(Landikotal),a woman near Ali Masjid (Jamrud),2 women& a man were killed in Ghundi, Jamrud this month 1/3
I was told no FIR has been registered by the police due to the pressure of locals &customs. Most of these honor killings can't even be verified independently because of the lack of communication channels in the area&locals pressures of the local to push news under the carpet 2/3
The increasing violence against women and honor killing is extremely worrying. It's about time to call #HonorKilling extrajudicial murders, the customs and culture which kill women and men should be disowned. 3/3

so this thread is a very false equivocation - the honor killings mentioned here have to do with the WHOLE family, not just the man of the house (as is the case in American "domestic disputes" such as the ones mentioned here) 1/
the fundamental difference is in WHOSE "honor" is being protected; in cultures such as the one I'm from, a "disgraced" woman doesn't shame just her patriarch (as is the case in the instances mentioned in op), but entire family is disgraced 2/
it's not only a matter of the man of the house being disobeyed/"robbed" of his authority, but a matter of EVERYONE in the family losing their social standing - if I impugn my family's honor, my sister is less marriageable, my mother less honorable, even cousins may be affected 3/
