Each and every year in just Britain – at least according to the Association of Chief Police Officers:
Up to 17,000 women in Britain are being subjected to “honour” related violence, including murder, every year, according to police chiefs.
It warns that the number of girls falling victim to forced marriages, kidnappings, sexual assaults, beatings and even murder by relatives intent on upholding the “honour” of their family is up to 35 times higher than official figures suggest.
The crisis, with children as young as 11 having been sent abroad to be married,………..
Yes – you read that right. 11 year old girls being sent to Bangladesh and Pakistan to become “brides”. Beatings and Murders occurring in Britain every day. And then the Archbishop of Canterbury has the gall to come out and say that Britain will need to make some accommodation with sharia law? It seems like this is already happening:
Women who have been taken overseas to be married against their will are now being rescued on an almost daily basis. The Government’s Forced Marriage Unit (FMU) handled approximately 400 cases last year – 167 of them leading to young Britons being helped back to the UK to escape unwanted partners overseas.
So where is the outraged voice of global feminism? Can you imagine the outcry if the headlines were “17,000 Blacks subject to Abuse Every Year by Whites”? And this is just Britain. What about France and Germany and Sweden and all the other countries with huge Muslim populations that they are afraid of offending?
Just as a heartbreaking example:
The human cost of honour crime was vividly captured in a haunting video message from murdered Banaz Mahmood, who revealed how her own father had tried to kill her after she abandoned her arranged marriage and fell in love with another man. In the grainy message she told how he plied her with brandy – the first time she had ever drunk alcohol – pulled the curtains and asked her to turn around.
The 19-year-old fled, but less than a month after making the grainy video on a mobile phone, Banaz was dead. Her naked body was found buried in a yard in Birmingham in 2006, more than 100 miles from her London home. She had been raped and tortured by men hired by her uncle to kill her. Mahmood’s father, uncle and one of her killers were sentenced to a total of 60 years in jail for the murder.
Just what kind of uncle hires thugs to rape, torture, and murder his niece?
