Talk:Honor killing

Honor Killings Sanctioned by Koran

The statement here that Honor Killings are not sanctioned by the Koran is politically correct revisionism. This view has been manufactured for the west to "soften" Islam for the public.

I will correct the text and cite Koranic Verses and hadiths.

I know some people are likely to get upset at why I removed the qualifier from atheists and agnostics, so I'm posting a rationale for the change here. Atheists are bad for their own reasons, but I don't think we should portray this as if there are non-Muslim elements that do not think it is an abhorrent practice. It's pretty clear why atheism is an evil to most Conservapedia readers, I don't think we need to imply they support honor killings. I'd be happy to see it readded, if someone can get a cite of a prominent atheist saying they think honor killing is okay, but otherwise I think we should leave it out.

While looking around online, I've also found mention that some honor killings are carried out by Hindus or Sikhs in the traditions of their respective religions. I cannot find a citation better than the Telegraph ( which seems rather weak so I am not adding it to the article at this time. TGeary 19:39, 14 November 2008 (EST)

My comments

To be honest, the formatting on this article is utterly horrible. They is potential for using better prose and more consise language. Another this is that {{cite}}, etc. should be used for the article. I plan on getting this done sometime soon, when I have the time to do so. GregoryZ 22:20, 29 July 2010 (EDT)

Sentence fragment in first paragraph

The last sentence in the first paragraph seems to be a sentence fragment. I would fix it but I'm not sure what the original editor's intent was. --Dfrischknecht 16:16, 22 March 2012 (EDT)
