    About frickin' time.

    "Long-awaited legislation to tackle so-called honor killings is due to pass Pakistan's parliament in a matter of weeks, according to the country's Law Minister, Zahid Hamid.

    The anti-honor killing bill is due to be presented in front of a joint sitting of Pakistan's Senate and the National Assembly as early as August 9, and Hamid says he expects the bill to be passed."

    Creating a law concerning this is a good start, but it is the culture that needs to be changed

    thats the hardest and almost impossible part to change unless they modernize their society. education is the only thing that can change it.
