    This was no more a Muslim killing than the Jim Jones massacre in Guyana a Christian massacre. Barbaric backward people commit barbaric backward acts. Period.
    Honour killings are cultural in nature and not religious which is why it is unheard of in Indonesia the country with the largest Muslim population. It is rather an Arab/ south Asian cultural custom.
