A 24-year-old woman has been recovering in a Ugandan hospital after her Muslim father tried to burn her to death as an act of honor killing for converting to Christianity.
Miss Kyomuhendo was left with horrific burns on her legs, stomach, ribs, neck and a portion of her lower back, according to religious watchdog the Morning Star News.
According to Islamic tradition, the "honor" of the entire family is measured by women's behavior. Any action that may be perceived as harming the family's honor may cost the woman her life. In other words, a woman is required not only to obey Islam including its strict codes of modesty but also to completely obey her male guardians (husband, father, brother and even uncle).
