"In its annual report the commission said 900 more women suffered sexual violence and nearly 800 took, or tried to take, their own lives."
"In 2014 about 1,000 women died in honour-related attacks and 869 in 2013."
"Correspondents say a large number of such crimes go unreported in Pakistan."
So what propelled one family to kill another in these honor killings?
"The predominant causes of these killings in 2015 were domestic disputes, alleged illicit relations and exercising the right of choice in marriage," the report said.
What Islamic teaching may inspire one relative to want to kill another? Any particular relative whose actions may potentially stimulate disbelief within the family can be regarded as an "enemy": "O ye who believe! Lo! among your wives and your children there are enemies for you, therefore beware of them." (Quran 64:14).
