On Monday, The U.K. Daily Mail posted an article that illustrates one of the really negative aspects of Sharia Law.
The article reports:
A five-year-old girl who was raped by a stranger has been murdered by her family in a so-called ‘honour killing’, according to reports.
The young girl’s parents allegedly killed their daughter in ‘cold blood’ after she was kidnapped and raped by an unidentified man in the Al-Shahba area of Syria on November 18.
The child’s body was found in a garbage container in Manbij, north Syria, on January 27 before being transferred to Al Furat Hospital which lies in eastern Aleppo.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) have said that Internal Security Forces have arrested several family members of the girl.
The girl’s parents have denied killing their daughter and investigations are ongoing, the SOHR added.
The article concludes:
Just days after the video of Eida’s murder emerged on social media, a 16-year-old girl was strangled to death by her father in another so-called ‘honour killing’ after she was raped by a relative.
The girl was identified as Aya Muhammad Khalifo by the Violations Documentation Center in northern Syria.
Following the murders, hundreds of women protested against the ‘honour killings’ in the city of Hasakeh by marching down streets.
Protester Evin Bacho, a member of the Kurdish feminist group Kongra Star, said: ‘We condemn these crimes in the name of tradition or religion.’
Honor killing is an acceptable practice under Sharia Law. Honor killings have happened in America in Islamic communities that practice Sharia Law. This is a practice that should never be condoned here or anywhere else. Western culture would have taken the five-year-old girl who was raped and worked to help her heal from the trauma. Sharia Law says she has dishonored her family (despite the fact that she was the victim–not the perpetrator) and deserves to die. Cultures matter.
