Love is a powerful emotion,sometimes it just happens without one been ready for it. Many times you are surprised by the person you end up falling in love with.
How is it that Love for some women and girls translates to mean a death sentence? Stories abound of women and girls who have become victims of death for loving the wrong man.
Afghan woman punished for eloping with another man after her family had arranged to marry her off to a different man. Her name was Rohksahana …she was stoned to death!
A teenage girl, Aswad was also stoned to death because she loved a boy from a different religion. She was condemned to death by men in her family who regard it as honor killing! Reports like these are common in Iraq among the Kurdish north. Unfortunately most victims of these honour killings are women and girls considered to have shamed their families through immoral behaviour
How is it that a woman gets stoned for adultery almost all the time? This is barbaric, inhuman,sickening and just so…so…so…i find no words to explain it!!!
These honour killings just has to STOP! Every Life counts!
Zero tolerance to gender-based violence.
