Oh it’s 4 am now and I still can’t sleep … because I’m a little upset.
I was drawing Pakistan this time and along the researches, I’ve found few murder cases called as “honor killing”.
For your reference, I put the definition of it from the web.
An honor killing or shame killing is the murder of a member of a family, due to the perpetrators’ belief that the victim has brought shame or dishonor upon the family, or has violated the principles of a community or a religion with an honor culture.
Well.. I can’t describe how I feel about this.. sad? or angry?
Pakistan is called as “The home of Indus Valley Civilization”.
The country have rich cultures, arts, the world heritages.. many things to be proud of.
But the position of women isn’t equal to men.
This point makes me feel down when I draw this country.
Japan used to be the same. I mean not exactly same as Pakistan, but woman isn’t equal to men. I think whole world used to be in the past.
So there are still many ppl mind-set is like women must obey men in everywhere.
I’m not saying that women is better than men, women must be treated better than men, but just need to be given same human rights as men.
I pray for them.
