    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.
