Two recent cases struck me about how Muslims deal with the issue of "honour" crime within the community.
The case of Pakistani woman who dropped rape charges against her husband following pressure from the family and the community seems a classic case of culture over common sense along with being a shocking way to treat such a serious offence against any woman. The husband is on the Sex register for other Sex offences.
However, take the example of Mohammad Al Hakim a Maradona lookalike who was stupid enough to threaten his cousin with death for deciding not to wear the Hijab a court heard. Notwithstanding the alleged death threats an interesting indication of his own devoutness and piety was how he proceeded to also call his cousins family "bitches and whores".
I'm not exactly sure what part of Islam Al Hakim seems to think justifies him using such language however my advice to him is perhaps he should spend more time worrying about his own appearance so a diet and a haircut seems to be in order.
