NEW YORK (Web Desk) – While the Western media is often seen highlighting the crimes like honour killing from Pakistan, an American professor has questioned the US media for neglecting the reporting on such crimes in their own society.

In a letter written in response to an article headlined “Family stones woman to death,” Judy Haiven, who is a professor at Saint Marry’s University, Halifax, said that every day three women are murdered by their families in the United States, however, the media is only quick to target women murders in Muslim countries.

“Maybe they should also look at the facts in the United States and Canada,” he went on to say while referring to the report which claimed that 869 women have been killed for honour in Pakistan since 2013.

“By my count, it’s 1,095 women killed” in the United States in the same duration, he added.
