The Islamic “Honor” Killing of Qandeel Baloch (David Wood)

Pakistani model Qandeel Baloch was recently strangled to death by her own brother for dishonoring her family.

Baloch had become a controversial figure in Pakistan for posting revealing photographs on Facebook. But the threats against her escalated after she embarrassed Islamic cleric Abdul Qavi by sharing a video of them in a room together.

News agencies are reporting that the murder of Qandeel Baloch had nothing to do with Islam. However, a closer look at Islam’s most trusted sources shows why honor killings are so common in Pakistan. In this video, David Wood examines the teachings of Muhammad to see if they support honor killings.
