Those cowards who killed you were not men but merely wolves..blood thirsty animals who need the whole pack to kill..instead of disown you and let you live your life they killed you.."HONOUR KILLING" they call it..but you must have dignity and strength to have honor..where is the strength in hundreds of men versus one inoccent girl? there is none..you yourself have honor Du'a..i did not once see you strike back or try to fight them..you are also a HERO to other girls in similar situation..it is through your sacrifice that these traditions have been brought to light for alot of the world and people are trying to make changes..never has a stranger touched my life so strongly or made me want to really make changes in the world..i hope one day you are made a saint..because right now you are some bodies gaurdian angel..R.I.P!!

I write through the translator so Sorry. I am deeply outraged by the actions to those geeks, burn in HELL THEM! Poor Dua, I have dosih cannot get over it. If I were there for each slit throats. Apparently they gave it a pleasure once they filmed it all on video and brought the phone to her face that would be better to remove it torture. As is already 21. THIS nonhumans. Where to watch the world community on human conduction. Rest in peace Dua forgive us. Eugene Kazakhstan

How those cruel demons must have feared you to kill you so cruelly. One little person curled up as a crowd of hundred howls at you. You are above them all now.

My heart breaks for you, knowing the fear you experienced in your last moments. Although I may not know you personally, please know that I would give anything to have taken the pain for you. You were so young, and had so much taken from you. Please know in some way, my heart is with you, and I am so sorry for the horror you experienced. I can only hope you are at peace now. I cannot grasp the atrocities that are committed in this world, but I promise you are not forgotten. My love, my sorrow for you, my tears, they may not be much, but they are with you. I am so very sorry you had to endure this. My heart reaches out to you, as I hope God almighty is holding you in his arms now. ورغم أنني لا أعرف, أبعث لك مني خالص المحبة لك, غريب. هل لديكم مراقبة السلام الأميركية. وهي امرأة شابة, ولكن لا تنسى. قلبي يصل إلى جانبكم, وآمل في أن ألتقي بكم في الفرصة المقبلة على الحياة. Translated :Although I never knew you, I send my deepest love for you, a stranger. May you have peace, and watch over us. A young woman, who was taken, but not forgotten. My heart reaches for yours, and I hope for the chance to meet you in the next life.

I remember the very first time I saw this footage it was last year on you tube.I was just browsing through videos until I ended up seeing that video. something that I never I saw in my life.a gruesome video of a young beautiful girl I couldn't tell how beautiful she was when I saw the video, until I researched her name after me viewing that horrible video of khalil getting beating stepped on on her crotch dragged around, kicked around, and barely clothe and she was pulled by her arm after her death this poor young girl was hiding scared for her life until her family lied to her saying it is safe to come home but it was all a lie all these people wanted to hurt her poor Dua khalil crying out for help and no one helped I wish I could of helped her.that's why I. Hate towards men because there dogs.that video was haunting me for months I even wanted to find out more about her and why this happen and why these people are soo cruel I had headaches from reading and researching and still til this day I will remember dua and her horrific story. Rip dua khalil aswad. We love you your not alone.

Dua will be a queen in the paradise and all this suffering and pains will not go for nothing God have a wisdom and this life is preparation to the real long life after death. By the way she is captured in a trap and they tryed to captured her many times before but this time they finalyy succeed with the support of her relatives!! They consider it honor case + that she changed her religion from Yezidi to Islam and about to marry a muslim which mean for Yezidi religion that they can go ahead stone her till death what and evil religion that against last part of humanity.

Am really sorry that this had to happen to an innocent child of only 17 years. Truly our Great GOD will one sort out all this craziness, albeit in HIS own time. Rest in eternal peace, but to those who did this very cowardly act, a day is coming when you shall have to account for what you did,woe unto you if you do not repent! To all her pals and all who loved her, (i never knew you but this doesn't matter as we are all the children of the same GOD) may peace be your share in the knowledge that she is protected by GOD HIMSELF.

I know this is rather belated but I was unlucky enough to have been sent the video tonight, and I will never escape the images I saw. I knew 'honour killings' existed and put it down to 'another culture - don't have to agree with it, but have to respect it.' But I don't respect this. It is completely barbaric. The girl was 17, and was "seen with" a boy of another religion. I'm completely speechless. I feel so much sympathy and pity for middle-eastern women living in cultures that believe in honour killings, as this has proved you don't even have to be guilty. The men / family decides. I assume the killing takes place so the family can rise above any shame placed on them. Do they seriously feel no remorse afterwards? I'm sorry, I know I'm naive. I can't make sense of it. Dua, you were so young and so beautiful. I'm incredibly sad you were born into such a family of monsters. R.I.P child, you are safe where you are. All my love to you and other such victims... :'( xxxx

Dua, I have not been able to watch your murder and I will never do so. There is no need as the brutality and dishonour done to you is beyond anything I have ever imagined. I have to keep stopping myself from reliving your final moments. How terrified, lost and alone you must have felt. Know this, your unbearably painful death has opened uncountable hearts and through such a short life, you have made a tremendous impact on our world. You are without a doubt the single most courageous girl i know to take on such a difficult life. And you did so that others may learn and grow and open their hearts and move towards love, respect and compassion. I personally know that I will simply not sit by and pretend you no longer exist. You lived and died for all of the girls who have lived and died before you and who live amongst us now and who will die the same way as you because of "honour". Until there is enough awareness, education, and acceptance...and this madness will stop. It WILL stop, Dua. So, now go do what you please...you are free from all shackles, nothing and no one holding you back. Deepa

I can totally understand, why you were seeking a different life beyond the bully cowards of your clan and society. As an artist, I'm sure you saw life, as a beautiful possibilities. Too bad such a celebration of spirit was murdered by such a sick and heartless community of the misguided and entrenched. I'm so heart-sick for what they did to your body, but you will far outlive those, who dealt you a painful end. Those men, who took your life or stood by to watch are the dishonorable losers, they should fear. They are lost, but you are in our hearts, mind and prayers forever. friend danny

Dua was a beautiful girl, and inshahallah she will be in jannat. She resides in all our hearts, and those monsters will be punished even they will die one day Allah will punish them. Injustice has been done with you dua. No where in the Qur'an does it say that you should stone your daughter to death for loving a boy of the wrong religion. Shame on those who killed Dua and may her soul rest in peace forever. Ameen. x x x x x x we love you Dua x

In memory of Dua Khalil Aswad, the 17 year old innocent victim that was stripped, beaten, kicked and stoned to death by over 1000 men because she chose to reach outside her faith for love and friendship. This murder was videotaped by several men and uploaded to the internet as a bragging right to show the world how they protected their honor. 1000 men cheered this event on as if it were a sporting event, not one person stepped forward to help Dua, not even the police that stood by, arms folded, smiling while watching her murder. They can all be seen on the video tape. The murderers are still free, her family was given money in exchange that they "forgive" her daughter's murderers. Dua lives in the hearts of millions of people around the world, she represents all victims of this horrendous crime. We must never forget Dua and all the other Duas out there that have suffered greatly at the hands of cowards. We must not look the other way, we must educate! We must eradicate! We must not hesitate! Do not look the other way, help these victims, spread the word, do what is necessary, do not let another innocent victim suffer like Dua did for wanting something that every person should have - freedom of choice, freedom to live, freedom to smile and freedom to love! Please join me in honoring Dua Aswad as the International Poster Child for a crime referred to as "honor killing" - bless you Dua Khalil Aswad - we will never forget you!

Although I never knew you Dua but you seem so close to my heart right now. No one in this world has the right to take away someones life that easily. The people responsible for your death Dua are going to pay both in this world as well as the next. How dare they just took your life without any reason? I know you have left us & gone to a much better place - A place where God will protect you against all that is evil.... Rest in peace ..

I still remember seeing the despicable and vile footage of your death, and sadly, you were the first martyr to be filmed and placed up on the internet.... I hope that in some small way it shows the rest of the world what terrible suffering and oppression for women goes on, and will be one small step towards ending it. I hope you are somewhere warm and kind now, far from the terror this brutish world had to offer you in your short life. Listening to 'Honest Goodbye' by Bad Religion. This song will always remind me of you. Peace D'ua.

May her tragic death remind women everywhere that we must stand together for justice throughout the world. For only when the least empowered of us is safe will all of us be safe. What they do to one they do to all. We must bring an ever-growing light into this world until all are free to live and to love. I pray that her spirit has long since found peace.
