How­ever, Is­mail was shot dead and his fa­ther now be­lieves his daugh­ter-in-law is now in dan­ger. Saba’s fam­ily con­vinced her to re­turn home af­ter con­vinc­ing her they will get her mar­ried to Is­mail af­ter Eid.

Ac­cord­ing to the vic­tim’s fa­ther, he was not aware of the where­abouts of his daugh­ter in law and feared she might be killed too in the name of honor.

Ear­lier on June 18, a man’s throat was slit by rel­a­tives of his wife in Mul­tan who dis­ap­proved of their mar­riage.

Hun­dreds of women are mur­dered by rel­a­tives in Pak­istan each year on the pre­text of de­fend­ing what is seen as fam­ily hon­our, but it is rare for vic­tim to be a man.

Two weeks ago, Zeenat Bibi was killed in La­hore by her mother for mar­ry­ing a man of her own choice in a case that sparked con­dem­na­tion through­out the coun­try.
