January 18, 2017- Pictures: Pakistani Woman Sentenced To Death For Burning Daughter Live Says She Has No Regrets

  • A Pakistani mother has been sentenced to death for burning her daughter alive in a so-called “honor killing” incident.

  • Parveen Bibi told a court in Lahore, Punjab that she killed her daughter “for bringing shame to her family,” police spokeswoman Nabila Ghazanfar told CNN Tuesday.

  • Parveen’s son Ahmer Rafique was sentenced to life in prison for his role in the crime.

Zeenat Rafique, 18, was strangled and set alight by her mother and brother in June 2016 after she eloped against their wishes.

Rafique had been living with her new husband for a month before she visited her home in Lahore in the hopes of a reconciliation with her family.

But when Rafique arrived, her mother and brother tied her to a bed, poured gasoline and set her on fire, police said.

Parveen then turned herself over to the authorities but expressed no sorrow for actions.

Under new anti-“honor killing” laws that took effect in October, neither Parveen or her son will be eligible for pardon even if another family member forgives them for the crime.

Previously, murderers were able to walk free in many instances, creating what critics characterized as a culture of impunity. Now, a killer will face a minimum sentence of 25 years in jail.

The law’s passage came after a series of high-profile incidents, including the murder of social media star Qandeel Baloch by her brother, who later said he was “proud” of his actions.

According to the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, almost 300 women were victims of such killings in the first half of 2016.

In a 2015 report by the World Economic Forum, Pakistan ranked 144 out of 145 countries on gender disparity.

    Wicked mother and heartless son. Now that you’ve killed your own blood,haven’t you yourself brought shame and disgrace to your own family? That law need to be changed. The law need to stipulate that,whenever any person engage in HONOR KILLING,such person will instantly be killed in like manner. That would be better off than many years imprisonment for such crime.

      I would like to enlighten you a bit about the honour killing which is very rampant in Asia subcontinent. This barbaric act is quite common within their culture regardless of which religion they belong to. Among are Christians, Hindus (largest population), Sikhs and Muslims incase you don’t know. If you ask anyone of them they will explain to you that this has no basis in their but it’s cultural. So why are you singling out Islam only, this shows****** you are. I pray to almighty God extinguish hatred from your heart and guide you to the right path.

    I’D thought that men should be the ones who champion this evil, for women are largely the victims. But for a woman to come all out and inflict this upon her own child shows how demonic this practice is. I just wonder how she lives with the thought that she is the killer of her own daughter. Tufiakwa!!!!!

    Human mind, who can truly understand it ? I said it before and I say again that it is difficult to fight an IDEA. The lack of remorse proves it and it is doubtful if mere existence of laws prescribing or prohibiting “honor killings” will stop these acts. In addition to such laws there is need for intensive sensitization of their citizens from very young age to value human lives….even the lives of “sinners’; otherwise that country is in for a very loooong battle fighting honor killings by dishonorable family members.
    When we hear these stories we can’t but thank God for little mercies for Naija.

    For a mother to come out and be proud of it that she killed her daughter, then something is wrong somewhere. A well deserved judgment.

      A true Christian will never kill no matter what. The ones that kill,do not kill in the name of God or to please God. That is the problem with many Muslims, killing in the name of God and family honour. No one will see the peaceful nature of Islam as a religion when they kill people… innocent people to be justified by their God.

    Truth words Aishah. If you want to bad no matter what religion U belong to, you will be bad.Better be good in all you do, so that you can enjoy eternity. This woman had shown the highest lack of human feelings bcos of her act.

    ‘BIMBO’Please stop condemning other peoples Religion, Do you know that any Muslim who condemn Jesus Christ or does not believe in the Prophecy of Jesus is not a good Muslim even in the sight of Almighty God. It is unfortunate that anybody can say any rubbish and do away with it in the social media. I believe you must be an educated person, and educated people are not known to have this type of view. May God bless you brother BIMBO

    However ‘Honour killing’ is not of Islamic Religion it is Cultural Reminiscent to India and Pakistani people. There is no where in the Holy Qur’an where Almighty Allah prescribed ‘Honour Killing’

    As much as I prefer to be open-minded when it comes to matters of religion, it is very true that these egregious practices are synonymous with Muslims. As a practicing attorney with a large number of Pakistani clients, I am aware of this practice amongst people of Pakistani descent. They need more education to teach their people that cutting off the head is not the solution to headache, as the saying goes in my Yoruba language. There has to be enlightenment as to the essence of forgiveness. If a girl chooses to marry a man against the wishes of her family, let her go and learn her lesson. After all said and done, she is the only one that will live with him and face the consequences of her disobedience (if that is the case). Remember these are the same people that tried to assassinate a 12 year old girl for speaking out in favor of education for girls – Malalah who was flown to London for treatment and given asylum some years ago. What more can you expect from such barbaric people? Unfortunately, these people are illiterates and cannot read my message, so, therefore, I rest my case.
