Post-Shafia Verdict, the Afghan Embassy Gets In On the PR Act

From the National Post:
The Afghan Embassy in Ottawa publicly condemned the Shafia family murders on Tuesday, calling the honour killings of three teenagers and their father’s first wife “a heinous crime against humanity.”
“There is nothing (honourable) about violence against anyone, especially against innocent women,” says the embassy’s written statement.
“(Honour) killing is unacceptable in Afghanistan Constitution and its Justice System.”...
Given that both its Constitution and system of justice are based on sharia, a law that enshrines the divinely-decreed superiority of men, that's rather a laugh and a half.
