People often turn a blind eye to these heinous killings. Pakistan, for ecample, is known to have about 1,000 of the 5,000 yearly deaths by means of honor killing. This form of killing is not restricted only to countries in the Middle East and Asia. These killings have been reported in Europe, Canada and even the United States. This is evidence that the killings are condoned and conducted as a part of the culture and not as part of the religion. Family members tend not to press charges on those who commit the murders and if the individual survives, they tend to publicly forgive the attackers. In Packistan, a loophole existed where if an individual was publicly forgiven in court, they were set free.
