In memory of Farzana - victim of a so called honour killing recently. There is no such thing as an honour killing and nor is it stated in any religious scriptures. The men that do this are pig-ignorant fools that follow culture NOT religion and are more concerned with what society and their communities think of them, rather than their own daughters' happiness.

Rest in peace Farzana and the thousands of other female victims that are murdered by their OWN families who get away with it because of the useless meaningless term - honour killing.

There is no honour in killing,

No killing is considered an honour,

Enlighten me please,

Tell me which page?

Which Quranic verse?

Where does it state one can kill to save face?

You mutilate your own,

To prove a point to who?

You ignorant shit head,

You don’t have a clue!

You useless human following God’s teachings,

When it is the Devil in fact:

He promotes this bludgeoning.

She was formed from the rib cage,

Where she’d reside in your protection,

Oblivious at birth, you’d kill in disaffection.

She stood no chance against your malicious act,

She stood no chance though it is a proven fact;

There is no honour in killing,

No killing is considered an honour.
