Man allegedly stones wife to death in honour killing

A man is accused of stoning his 24-year-old wife to death with the help of his brother in a so-called honour killing. The mutilated body of the victim was found near Indus Highway on June 27, close to the village of Wadda Chacha in Pakistan.

An honour killing is when a relative, predominately a female, is murdered due to a twisted belief that the victim has brought shame on the family.

The woman, identified only as Waziran in foreign media reports, was allegedly killed in the city of Jamshoro in Pakistan’s Sindh district according to a report by The Mirror.

Her body was mutilated and severe head injuries had been inflicted when found and her dad Gul Muhammad initially told police that her death was an accident.

But he later retracted his statement and claimed she was killed by her husband Allah Baksh and his brother Kareem Baksh.

Both men have been arrested and remain in police custody.

Pakistani human rights lawyer Ayaz Latif Palijo shared a video on Twitter purporting to show Waziran’s dad weeping over her grave.

In the tweet, he wrote:

Father of a murdered daughter crying for justice at her grave. Waziran has been brutally stoned to death four days ago in Dist Jamshoro, Sindh, but her killers have not been arrested yet. The rural feudal and tribal areas of Pakistan have been turned into killing fields for women.

In relation to the same issue of honour-killing, last month, a 19-year-old Iranian woman was allegedly beheaded by her husband after she ran away from him days after they got married. The 23-year-old man tracked her down after a year of searching.

Different human right groups have been speaking against this issue and clamouring that the government take steps and make laws to protect women from constant issues of honour killings in the region.
