Perhaps I get trouble to post thread here, but is aspect of Islam I fear very much. I do not discuss if this part of Islam teaching, I point out is done in culture. I do not want such practice to be part of culture in my country.

He feel he have right to save honor. I am fill with horror.

I remember seeing a story about this once, don't remember what religion it is, but I don't think its Islam. It happens mostly in India.

Below is quote from article

Activists accuse President Gen. Pervez Musharraf, a self-styled moderate Muslim, of reluctance to reform outdated Islamized laws that make it difficult to secure convictions in rape, acid attacks and other cases of violence against women.

This is a horrifying topic, and worth discussion, but not here. I understand your motivation for wanting to post about it, but this is both a religious and political topic, and therefore against the rules.
