Watch: Important interview by human rights activist Raheel Raza on CNN after the tragic death of an innocent pregnant woman who was stoned to death by her family in Pakistan as an act of "Honor Killing". Under Sharia law in Pakistan, a man can kill his wife, daughter and even his mother in order to preserve the "family honor". As you can see in the video below Raheel Raza describes it as it is, women are not considered human beings under Sharia law in Pakistan. Honour killings in Pakistan are known locally as karo-kari. Pakistan has the highest number of documented and estimated honour killings per capita of any country in the world; about one-fifth of the world's honour killings are performed in Pakistan (1000 out of the 5000 per year total). According to Islamic tradition, the "honor" of the entire family is measured by women's behavior. Any action that may be perceived as harming the family's honor may cost the woman her life. In other words, a woman is required not only to obey Islam including its strict codes of modesty but also to completely obey her male guardians (husband, father, brother and even uncle).
