Muslims Please explain
MULTAN, Pakistan (Reuters) -- Pakistani police have arrested five men on charges of kidnapping and gang-raping a woman in the latest of a string of so-called honor crimes.
The married woman was attacked because one of her male cousins had an affair with a women whose father disapproved of the relationship, police said on Wednesday.
"The accused say they carried out this horrible act as an act of honor," Mai was attacked because her brother had befriended a woman from a power clan, offending male members of the clan.
Hundreds of women are raped or killed every year by men intent on restoring honor after behavior -- by the woman or a male relative -- deemed inappropriate in the male-dominated society.
I am aware of the Arab tradition of killing a sister or daughter for acts of so called indecency, but have never heard of raping and killing a woman for acts of another family member.

I know it is an Arab thing and not necessarily a Muslim thing. But I was hoping someone could explain this custom.

Not an Aran thing, it is a Indie slash Sub Indian continent custom.
I know, no arab that will do such thing for honor!
but in Pakistan and India it happens often, like the killing of daughter, wive and what not!

Nothing to do with Islam or Muslims, its cultural.
Its sad to see such a religious and good women put through this horror. The rapers should be put to death.
After all this, she still has time to teach the Koran to kids. A brave women, who should be looked as a rolemodel.
"I was once able to find time to teach the Koran to children for an hour every day. I would even find time for stitching clothes or to meet people who would come to me for advice. But all that is gone since my security was increased. I cannot even meet the locals easily."
