I've said it before: if they're going to act like

backwards, bloody-handed barbarians, the people who do this- and those who defend it- should be treated as such.
Five women were buried alive by their tribe in a mass honour killing prompted by their wish to choose their own husbands.

The victims, who included three teenagers, were abducted at gunpoint, beaten and shot before being thrown into a ditch.

They were still breathing as their bodies were covered with rocks and mud, according to media reports and human rights activists
.

As to the defenders of this crap,
A Pakistani lawmaker provoked outrage by defending men from the Baluch tribe who had carried out the killings.

Israr Ullah Zehri told stunned members of Pakistan's parliament: 'These are centuries-old traditions and I will continue to defend them,'

'Only those who indulge in immoral acts should be afraid.'

He claimed the tribal traditions helped stop obscenity - and then asked fellow lawmakers not to make a big fuss about it
.
Mr. Zehri & Co. should be introduced to the attitude of Gen. Napier toward the murder of women:
"You say that it is your custom to burn widows. Very well. We also have a custom: when men burn a woman alive, we tie a rope around their necks and we hang them. Build your funeral pyre; beside it, my carpenters will build a gallows. You may follow your custom. And then we will follow ours."

People who endorse this kind of shit wouldn't last 5 seconds in my home. I'd love to give them a taste of an ass kicking they would never forget.
