Understanding the dynamics of a ‘crime of honour’

With the Shafia ruling came cries that “Honour Killings” have nothing to do with Islam. So why then are so many demanding specialized Islamic social services to counter honour murder?

“Mainstream organizations do not have the clinical skills to make the determination of whether an honour killing will take place or not. Often … nobody believes this kind of tragedy can take place.”

I doubt that lack of belief is the cause or a cultural disconnect that bars communication, it was political correctness and cultural relativism that helped kill the Shafia women.
