  1. Miraculously you survived. Give that with a grateful heart, give thank to the Holy One, because He is a Mighty God

  2. They call it “honour killing”. What honour is it when you try to kill your own blood sister because he refused arranged marriage? I don’t know why indian and pakistan continue to have a high record of this kind of systematic killings of their daughters who refused their instruction base on whom to marry. This obviously is their tradition,the government of indian have to make a very sound law that criminalise whoever is trying to arrange any marriage for their daughters in other to stop this senseless attack on their daughters.

    • @Endure, I wonder o. And isn’t it another wonder that women are the only victims of this their “honour killing”? Or have you ever heard that a man was honour-killed? Violence against women.

  3. Its high time their government make a law sentencing to jail those engaged in arranged marriage in that country
