Muhammadans are taught never to question the truth of Islam and to believe in Allah and his messenger with blind faith. Muhammadans are told that Allah would forgive all sins but the sin of disbelief (Qur'an Sura 4:48 and 4:116).
Honour kills do happen to protect the honour of the family and to punish those who fall away or appear to be falling away, even when they are just children in a somewhat rebellious stage of life.

Remember the Fox News special regarding honour killings?

Here is an update. FBI Calls Girls' Murder 'Honor Killing'

But some Muslims say that calling the case an honor killing goes too far.

"As far as we're concerned, until the motive is proven in a court of law, this is [just] a homicide," Mustafaa Carroll, the executive director of the Council of American-Islamic Relations in Dallas, told FOXNews.com.

He said he worries that terms like "honor killing" may stigmatize the Islamic community. “We (Muslims) don’t have the market on jealous husbands ... or domestic violence,” Carroll said.

The United Nations estimates that 5,000 women are killed worldwide every year in honor killings — mostly in the Middle East, where many countries still have laws that protect men who murder female relatives they believe have engaged in inappropriate activity. A U.N. report includes chilling examples of such cases. Source: First Time FBI Calls Case an 'Honor Killing'
