Hena Begum

It must have been so frightening for her. And she died. I am not surprised. There are so many human rights abuses in the World at the moment. How can anyone be happy when so many bad things are happening?

This is from the Radio Netherlands website.

14 year old Hena Begum was killed after an alleged affair with her cousin. Even it were true, so what? Why is this allowed to happen? What arcane system of retribution is this all about? Nothing, not religion nor anything else can justify this punishment. Even if she had killed a dozen people such a punishment would achieve nothing.
