THE DUEL shared a video.

We wrote this song this week after coming across a very distressing story about a 16 year old Turkish girl, who was buried alive by her father and grandfather for talking to boys.

They dug a hole in their back garden, tied up their daughter’s hands, forced her to sit there, while they filled the hole back up , and she suffocated to death as she was buried alive.

A long painful torturous death to your own child, for just talking to a boy – all in the name of honour ?????????? What kind of sick justice is this by your own father and family who are their to guide you thru this life!!!!

This true story is beyond comprehension and extremely upsetting.

This song is about this young girl, who was codenamed ‘MM’ .

This is for you MM, and all the people who have died as a result. RiP you beautiful poor souls 🙁

Let us please join together and voice our global disgust so that we can show the world that we will not tolerate this type of behavior ANYWHERE in the world. If we don’t stand up for each other then who will?

The internet has enabled us to have a global eye – lets please at least do something .. anything – rather than nothing. For the nightmare is too huge and we must please stand together on this.

‘The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it’. – Albert Einstein

Things we can do :

1. Share this video and help each other become more aware and lets feel the strength of our voice making a change! Helping each other to stand up together against atrocities. For a better future for all people –

It’s only possible if we at least try!

Too bad for MM, she will never see what the fuss was about on this special day :'(
