Honor killing and assault on women are issues that cannot be ignored by the society. Those issues are harsh that different organization and volunteers have used their time to prevent those assaults on women and other people in our community and around the world. I have written a super post about this issue, and in my post, you will be able to see how Honor killing is not different in Canada, a country that is considered one of the top, and Afghanistan. We all are the same, after all, we share the same DNA sequence, which is 99.5 %.
