Recently, news articles came out regarding yet another murder hungry man who killed his daughter in a most brutal and barbaric fashion because she had the audacity to fall in love.
It was the act of barbarity that caused our friends at Muslims Against Shari’ah to start the STOP HONORCIDE! CAMPAIGN. Please stand up for the humanity of women who live under this Islamic doctrine of dis “honor” killings! All crime is hate crime. There is nothing honorable about extinguishing life because the killer is allowed under his “religion”!
Ask your legislators to toughen the criminal laws regarding murder to add “honor” killings in their domestic violence laws and in the definitions of murder. Religion is NEVER a reason to take the life of another!
The STOP HONORCIDE! campaign was launched on Mother’s Day 2008. The goal of the campaign is to prosecute honorcides to the fullest extent of the law. We want honorcide to be classified as a hate crime and we advocate for every existing hate crime legislation to be amended to include honorcide.
If you wish to support STOP HONORCIDE!, please send us an email with your name, title (if applicable) and a short statement of support.
If you would like to lobby your elected official(s) to amend current hate crime legislation to include honorcide, you may use the letter below or you can draft your own letter.
