Qandeel Baloch murder: Pak bars family from ‘forgiving’ son for honour killing
Pakistani powers have banned the group of a killed online networking VIP from legitimately “lenient” their child for choking her, sources said, in an uncommon stand against the alleged routine of ‘honor killings’.
Muhammad Waseem medicated and choked Qandeel Baloch on Friday in a homicide that has stunned Pakistan, a profoundly moderate Muslim country where the 26-year-old both titillated and shocked with her scandalous online networking photographs and recordings.
Waseem told media he had ‘no second thoughts’ about killing his sister as she damaged the family’s honor by her online networking pictures, including “selfie” photos with conspicuous Muslim minister Abdul Qavi. In a video post with Qavi, she seems to sit on his lap.
A police source said the legislature of Punjab, the nation’s biggest territory, has made it unthinkable for the family to excuse the child who killed her – a typical lawful escape clause that sees numerous honor killings go unpunished in Pakistan.
