    Sounds like another 'Honour' killing again.

    Yes, we refer to them as honour killings.

    It's almost as if - well it is as if - the parents see their children as bargaining chips - to marry them into a rich family or give them social status - rather than the people that they actually are.

    Here's another:

    'Honour killing father threatened daughter the night before she went missing' | Mail Online

    A lot of times the daughters go missing and are never found.

    I think its a problem with the archaic culture.

    People complain that the only English culture is football or binge drinking but I don't see English parents (Caucasian) forcing their children to marry against their will or killing their children when they don't agree with the arranged marriage.

    Yet another sterling example of the wonderful influence religions have imparted to human civilization. :rolleyes:
