Honor killing – family kills sister.

There are some meme out there that pretend to show an equivalence between western culture’s treatment of women (scantily clad in a bikini) and middle eastern women (clad in a full burka).

This is shown to be a lie every time there is an honor killing. Specifically, every time there is an honor killing due to a woman not conforming to standards of expected behavior.

Qandeel Baloch was her name. She was only 26 years old. She was killed because she wore ‘provocative’ clothing. She was killed by her brother. It seems most likely from the article that she was killed by two of her brothers.

The difference between a burka in Islamic society and a bikini in western society is that not wearing one can get you killed.
