    Pakistani teen burnt alive by her mother for choosing own husband

    [​IMG]
    A Pakistani mother on Wednesday burnt her 16-year-old daughter alive for marrying a man of her own choice, before shouting on the street to neighbours that she had killed the teen for bringing shame on her family.

    It was the third so-called "honour killing" in the South Asian country in as many months, and a rare example of the crime being carried out by a woman.

    Zeenat Bibi, 16, was set on fire by her mother Perveen Bibi in the eastern city of Lahore a little more than a week after the couple had acquired their marriage licence, police said.

    "Perveen Bibi killed her daughter Zeenat Bibi by burning her alive around 9:00 am on Wednesday," Haidar Ashraf, a senior police official told AFP, adding the teen had married a man named Hasan Khan on May 29.

    Khan's ethnicity -- he is an ethnic Pashtun, while Zeenat was a Punjabi -- was the main cause of the family's disapproval, according to the woman's family.

    Zeenat's husband Khan told local TV station Geo News that the pair had eloped, but he had reluctantly allowed her to return to her family home after they promised they would hold a celebration and not harm her.

    He said: "After living with me for four days following our marriage, her family contacted us and promised they would throw us a proper wedding party after eight days. Then we would be able live together.

    "Zeenat was unwilling to go back to her home and told me that she would be killed by her family, but later agreed when one of her uncles guaranteed her safety.

    "After two days, she called me and said that her family had gone back on their word and asked me to come to get her, but I told her to wait for the promised eight days. Then, she was killed."

    Ashraf, the police official, said Perveen and other family members had confessed to the crime and that police had seized kerosene oil from the scene.

    - Family defiant -

    At the victim's two-bedroom family home in a low-income southern neighbourhood of the city, Perveen's family remained defiant.

    Naseem Bibi, Perveen's younger sister, told AFP: "After killing her daughter, Perveen went out on the street, took off her shawl and started beating herself on her chest, shouting: 'People! I have killed my daughter for misbehaving and giving our family a bad name.'"

    "My sister declared a long time ago she would not allow her daughter to marry a Pashtun," she said.

    The victim's sister Shazia also blamed Zeenat for defying her mother, but said she had urged her mother to cut ties with her instead of killing her.

    Perveen's husband died several years ago and her relationship with her daughters had deteriorated, according to Shazia.

    "Our mother became distressed because of her daughter's disobedience and because she felt there was no man in the house to rein her in."

    Hundreds of women are murdered by their relatives in Pakistan each year on the pretext of defending what is seen as family honour.

    "A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness" -- a film telling the story of a rare survivor of an attempted honour killing -- won an Oscar for best documentary short in February.

    Amid publicity for the film, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif vowed to eradicate the "evil" of honour killings but no fresh legislation has been tabled since then.

    LAHORE, Pakistan — A Pakistani woman was arrested Wednesday after dousing her daughter with kerosene and burning her alive, allegedly because the girl had defied her family to marry a man she was in love with, police said.

    Police official Sheikh Hammad said the killing took place in the eastern city of Lahore, the country’s cultural hub, and that the mother was arrested the same day.

    The suspect, Parveen Rafiq, has confessed to tying her 18-year-old daughter Zeenat Rafiq to a cot, after which, with the help of her son, Ahmar Rafiq, she poured the fuel on the girl and set her ablaze, Hammad said.

    Nearly 1,000 women are killed each year in so-called “honor killings” in Pakistan for allegedly violating conservative norms on love and marriage.

    I realize that their stupid culture brainwashes them into all of this dishonor bullshit, but it's unbelievable that it could turn them into unfeeling beasts who could do these things to a daughter or relative or innocent village girl.
