Honor killing is not just a tradition, it Is a sign of illiteracy and ignorance of people that how are they willing to murder their kin with their hands. Marrying a person that they love is not a sin.
Even ISLAM prohibits parents from imposing their decisions on their kin in terms of marriage. Our Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) asked his daughter even after a Wahi sent by Allah (S.W.T). Yet, he still asked his daughter that do you agree on this marriage?
It taught us that never force your kin to marry someone that you want for them without even asking them.
Imposing their decisions is prohibit by our Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H). Yet, parents do as they desire. We should follow Our Prophet’s Sunnah in such matters that will be better for everyone.
The children did a terrible mistake of meeting eachother that is considered as a major sin too but murdering someone is one of the greatest sins in ISLAM.
