"Reparations... It's the Muslim way if I am not incorrect.
blood money is acceptable in some sects of Islam, including Wahhabism.
But the family has to accept the terms of blood money, which it seems like they are.
In Pakistan, however, blood money is not an acceptable way out of murder once the state is involved. In the tribal areas, where there is no government rule of law, they may still practice it. But those places are the figurative wild west in all senses of the term.
