All Cultures are Equal ?

And we are supposed to respect them, accept them, tolerate them?

Well, someone will say he was arrested - true.  And what do you want to bet the rest of the case goes like this ...

man arrested, taken to police station, admits to killing daughters, goes before a judge who uses the Koran as his legal guide, man will be found guilty of a lesser charge of manslaughter, fined some large amount for wasting the time of everyone involved, and sentenced to death (to be carried out after he finishes paying).  His wife will cry, embrace him and they will all go home and finish out Ramadan.

A man gunned down six of his daughters on suspicion that two of them were in relationships with boys in the neighbourhood.

On Tuesday morning, Arif Mubashir called his teenage daughters to his room and shot them while the rest of the family, including their mother, watched. His wife Musarrat called the police after the incident.

Mubashir shot the girls after their brother said two of them were in a relationship. He told police officials that he had killed his daughters because they were both “without honour”. The man said his daughters Sameena, 14, and Razia, 16, were in a relationship with college boys from the neighbourhood and the sisters had helped each other. “I should have been told immediately but the girls sided with each other. They were both corrupt,” Mubashir told Tandlianwala Police Inspector Javed Sial.

Police officials have taken Mubashir into custody and filed a case against him. “He does not regret what he did. He boasted that he would do it all over again if he had to,” Sial told reporters.
Pakistan has repeatedly been termed as one of the least women-friendly countries. In June, the Thompson Reuters Foundation ranked Pakistan as the world’s third most dangerous country for women.
