    Seriously, you think someone should be praised for not killing their daughter? In the civilised world, that's just normal.

    I say Bravo to them because they defied their stupid tradition which is barbaric.

    Rather than praising one family who refuse to do this, I would prefer to see wholesale condemnation of those that do.

    The laws of Pakistan which permit murder are also at fault. The matter could be rectified with a few lines of legislation but one assumes there is no political will to do this.

    I'm not sure how any government, anywhere, can think that the gang rape of a young girl is her fault and she deserves to be murdered. How is this right in anyone's mind, those that attack this family are just bad as the rapists?!

    I don't think the government do believe that. The problem is that most of the population is uneducated, and even many of the educated ones are fiercely traditional. Any government who tries to act against such traditions will not be in power very long. So as CB says, there is no political will.

    Anyone who tried to move forward on this would probably be murdered.

    I think we should say Bravo to the girl and her family for their determination to pursue justice through the courts.

    There is no political will, to do anything in most Asian/African countries

    In a nutshell they are still barbaric in their attitude to modern society!
    Why?
    I have no idea.
    They have some very intelligent people in their hierarchy, but the vast majority are still living in the dark ages.

    They have no respect for human or animal life at all.
    Is life so cheap in these countries?
    I guess it still isSad

    I would say the same about our so-called civilized Western nations: I think it is pretty barbaric to invade other nations and indiscriminately drop bombs on civilians.
    I think there some very intelligent people in our Western hierarchy but the vast majority are still living in the dark ages (i.e. they start wars of aggression).
    They have no respect for human or animal life at all.
    You see, I can see parallels to each of your criticisms of African/Asian countries in "our own backyard"...
    Sad
