What are honor killings in the middle east?

Honor Killings in the Middle East are not distinct from honor killings in other tribal areas of South Asia and Africa, so there is nothing uniquely Middle Eastern about them. Honor Killings are based on the concept of public shame. Unlike Western society, where people are seen to rise or to fall as individuals, in traditional Middle Eastern, South Asian, and African societies, the family as a whole carries honor and respectability or carries shame and disregard. In the more traditional areas, rape and other sexual crimes are seen to be the fault of the female victim (as opposed to Western culture which properly imposes blame on the assailant). As a result, a female victim of rape brings dishonor and shame on her whole family, just as if she had murdered someone. This same dishonor can also be brough on by other crimes and "crimes". In order for the family to restore honor, one of them must, in turn, murder her and "prove" that their moral uprightness remains strong. As a result, her father or her brothers (and in rare cases, her mother) will kill her to preserve the family honor. Understandably, many NGOs are trying to prevent honor killings and are trying to help women who believe that they are likely to be honor killed. However, there is fierce resistance to these efforts by traditional people, many of whom believe that such killings are mandated by their religion (usually Islam or Hinduism). Often local clerics do not clarify that honor killings actually violate the laws of those religions and are merely traditiional baggage from a foregone era.
