How can violence be justified like this?

it’s okay if a little girl is a victim of physical abuse, it’s okay if she is a victim of a life-time trauma, it is no big deal at all if she loses her eyes, legs, hands or even gets handicapped for the rest of her life, but as long as she keeps that valuable hymenal membrane that would save her honor and that of her family, we’re fine.
