Muslim woman tells BBC why her father murdered her little sister to save the "family honor"

In heartbreaking testimony Bekhal Mahmoud, the older sister of Banaz Mahmoud, speaks to the BBC about her sister's murder.
This was one of the most horrific 'honour killing' case in the UK of a girl who was murdered by her own father for daring to kiss the man she loved.
This practice has no place in a civilized Western country like Britain.
In most Islamic countries there are no laws protecting women's rights, or prohibiting child marriage.
Under Sharia law a woman is considered half of a man, because the Qur'an says she has only half of a brain.
According to Islamic tradition, the "honor" of the entire family is measured by women's behavior. Any action that may be perceived as harming the family's honor may cost the woman her life. In other words, a woman is required not only to obey Islam including its strict codes of modesty but also to completely obey her male guardians (husband, father, brother and even uncle).
