so leaving aside the statistics, it is more important for a girl to be a virgin than to be alive? so, are we to take from your above statements, you are justifying honour killings?

I am justifying when a NRI don't want his daughter to go to night club with white chicks , I don't think any NRI has killed his/her daughter in the name of pride in USA, killing is wrong but if they try to protect children by asking them to stay in home@night instead of opening leg for everybody is justified.


if ratan tata/ narayan murty don't want their daughter to behave like Paris hilton then what is wrong even this consider as bad assimilate by some scientific research theory.

If Sunidhi chauhan come to US and don't take drug like britney then she is slow to assimilate.

I agree with you on the point about NRIs. What I was pointing out was we should not stand on high pedestal nad preach that our culture is better. It is certainly better in some ways, its worse in some others. Your earlier post suggested that!

Yes, if the survey above takes in factors like 'going to chruch or taking drugs', I agree with you that it is a flawed research. But I really doubt if the serveyors that stupid to include such things!

Further, there is no harm if immigrants from India or China do not assimilate. They have already proved their worth to this country as ideal immigrants. As long their culture doesnt affect the host country unlike some (in cases like this), I dont think Americans will object to it.

the point is how and to what extent do we want to assimilate into American culture is a individual decision. you or i cannot stand here and judge who and how much someone should assimilate into foreign culture. as far i see it, anyone not hurting the host country with their culture, however foreign it is to the host culture, it is ok!

now, if someone comes from a 7th century society, rapes and kills woman and then justifies it in the name of culture and ethnicity, he certainly deserves the toughest punishment allowed under law of the land! read this
Absolutely right. But then, how many honour (or honor, for the sake of assimilation) killings have been committed by the Indians in the US? If we let go of our shameful practices and adopt and adapt to the GOOD practices of the US, isn't that a degree of assimilation right there? Is it necessary that we abandon our culture so completely in an attempt to "fit in" and "assimilate" that we actually have to adopt everything that is deplorable in American society as well?
