Honour killings remain unchecked in Lahore

By Super Admin

Lahore, July 6 (ANI): Honour killing seems to go on unchecked in Lahore as it claimed three lives in two incidents last week. It seems that it has become part and parcel of lives of Pakistanis.

On July 2, a newly married couple was killed in the name of 'honour' in the Barki police precincts. Ramazan shot dead Khalid and his wife Shamim, who had eloped and married without the consent of their families.

Ramazan was Shamim's cousin and both had been engaged. The other incident took place on July 5, when a boy, Irfan, killed his uncle Shahadat Ali for marrying his mother after the death of his father in Kahna police precincts. Reportedly, Irfan considered the marriage a matter of 'honour'.

In 10 weeks, nine people were killed in the name of 'honour' in the city. Among these incidents, on June 18, in Sabzazar police precincts, Iqbal killed his sister Adeeba (22) for having an alleged affair with a boy, the Daily Times reported.

The accused tried to hide the incident by shifting the body to some other city, but the police recovered the body after chasing the accused. On June 2, Nawaz of Ferozewala killed his sister Shehnaz Bibi, who was a mother of two, for having an affair with a man.

On May 26, Ahsan Elahi gunned down his wife Shazia in Liaquatabad police precincts. On April 20, Zulfiqar Khokhar of Green Town killed his sister Shahnaz (35) and niece Farah (18) for honour.

In Kahna, on April 16, a woman was killed by her in-laws in the name of 'honour'. (ANI)
