Following is the letter I sent to different Jordanian media outlets pleeding for them to take a stand againt honor cirmes.
In reference to the latest hate crime reported on Jordan times magazine for a young Jordanian woman who have been beated to death by her father, brother and her unclie for wearing makeup and designated as an “honour crime”, I would like
to call all of you to stand up to such barbarian inherited law that doesn’t fit with the modern and civilised stucture of Jordan’s face.
It is time for our local media, whether it is printed or online, to stand up to their responsibilities towards Jordanian citizens. It is time for you all to raise up your voices and lobby to abolish such retarded law. We awe it to ourselves, to our mothers, to our daughters and to our wives, we ought to provide them with
dignity, equality, and safety. No Jordanian woman should fear the prosecution of a male relative. No man should get away with murder under the name of honor.
Jordan is calling you to help cleaning her face from those
dishonored crimes. We won’t tolerate any other murder that we know is coming. We carry a huge shame for what happens in this country, and we ask you all to act, to stop this insanity.
