    Why do we follow the Jordanian Laws which is based on tribal laws? We should follow the Islamic law which clearly prohibit honor killing. Islamic laws requires four credible witnesses to charge some one with adultery. What is the chance of having four credible witnesses?. Also the Islamic laws with regard to adultery applies to both men and women equally. How many men did you hear about was killed for committing adultery? The answer is zero. Also the punishment for adultery under the Islamic laws is not death. Also do not forget you need four credible witnesses to prove the adultery charges. Also, under Islamic law, the court only who decide if some one guilty or not. For those men who killed women for the sake on protecting what so called family honor I say, You committed a murder and took some one life and hell is waiting for you as a punishment from God.
