Hon­our killing

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - KHAL­IFA TANHA

If Women Pro­tec­tion Bill is not passed, then we should be pre­pared to wit­ness more Am­breens, Marias, and Zeenats get­ting onto the scaf­fold of hu­man apathy in our en­vi­romns. As a mat­ter of fact women pro­tec­tion is the last source to pro­tect women, but ow­ing to the reluctant and weak­ness of govern­ment, it could not be passed ac­tu­ally it could have been.

Now the new in­stances of killing women are be­ing cited at the so­cial Me­dia. Re­cently, in Pun­jab a novel way of killing in­no­cent teenager was re­ported in the press, when a mother be­headed the part of her heart, in the name of the fam­ily ‘hon­our’. I humbly re­quest the law en­force­ment agen­cies to take prac­ti­cal mea­sures to­wards pas­sage of the pend­ing leg­is­la­tion. —Tur­bat, Balochis­tan
