And all this for honour…. and for fear. Yes mostly fear. They are cowards, after all. 

Soala’s older brother Asadullah said that he could not face the humiliation of friends teasing him because his sister was allowed to go to university. “My conscience can not accept my young sister leaving the house every day and studying together with young men she does not know in the same class,” he said. “I am also ashamed of my friends mocking me. If they say even one bad word about my sister, my honour won’t be able to bear it.”
