Pakistan - 'Honour motive' probe over attack

Need I ask what word is missing from this BBC report?

Police in Karachi say a 14-year-old girl who survived being shot five times may have been the victim of an attempted "honour killing".

Noor Jehan was allegedly shot by relatives after being declared guilty of adultery under an ancient tribal tradition in southern Pakistan.

She was left in a roadside ditch but she managed to crawl her way to help.

Hundreds of women are killed every year in Pakistan in the name of "honour", usually related to marriages.

By the way, the missing word is "Muslim".
