Explain how this idea is OK.First I have a series of articles and facts.

A Pakistani tribal council recently ordered the gang rape of an 18-year-old girl as a punishment to her family after her younger brother was seen walking with a girl from a higher class. The rape occurred June 22 in the southern Punjab province, the Associated Press reported.
Two men suspected of committing the rape were arrested July 7; the remaining two are still at large. The Mastoi tribe claimed their honor was violated when the victim's 11-year-old brother was seen walking unescorted with a Mastoi girl in a deserted part of the village. The victim and her brother are members of the lower-class Gujar tribe.
The Mastoi tribe called a council meeting and ordered that the boy's sister be gang-raped to avenge the tribe's honor. She was taken to a hut and brutalized while hundreds of Mastois stood outside laughing and cheering, according to the victim.
Fact: Over 200 million men, women and children suffer from a combination of chronic malnutrition and severe undernutrition, and more than 2.5 million children in India die every year before reaching the age of five.
Fact: The ammount of rice eaten by rats in India could fill a train running from NY to LA.
Fact: Hindu teaching prohibits the killing of said rats, because of the belief that they are reincarnated ancestors.
Fact: 700,000 'Untouchables' are forced to bathe in and drink the same water thier animals bathe in and drink.
Challenge: Explain how culturally-sanctioned Rape, murder, and starvation are OK and should not be stopped.
It seems to be the attitude in modern culture today that it's OK for a culture to do whatever it wishes, as long as it 'works' for the culture. It also seems to be the attitude around here.
I'm willing to say that rape, murder, and starvation are never OK, and should be stopped through the obliteration of cultures that teach and protect said actions. I'm also willing to be called a bigot for this belief, but that's fine. All I ask is for someone to show logically and morally how rape, murder, and starvation are OK, even in the context of a culture that approves them.
In the end, science does not provide us the answers most of us require.[...]To the question, "How did it all begin?", science answers, "Probably by accident." To the question "How will it end?" science answers, "Probably by accident." To many people, the accidental life is not worth living.
