LAHORE: In an apparent ‘honour killing’, a 25-year-old pregnant woman was brutally beaten and stoned to death on Tuesday outside the high court here by her father and brothers for marrying the man of her choice.

Police said Farzana Parveen, resident of Faisalabad, had married Mohammad Iqbal of Jaranwala a few months ago against the wishes of her family.

The incident happened as the couple reached the court premises to record Farzana’s statement to defend her husband against allegations by her family that he kidnapped her and forced her to marry him.

Initially, the family members fired shots in the air and tried to snatch her from Iqbal.

After failing in their attempt, nearly 20 members of her family, including her father and brothers, attacked the couple with sticks and bricks before a crowd of onlookers in front of the high court of Lahore, said police official Naseem Butt.

Farzana, who was three-months pregnant, died while her husband managed to escape.

Police arrested Farzana’s father but her brothers fled from the scene, News International reported.

Police on information reaching the spot sent the body for autopsy and registered a case on complaint of the victim’s husband.

Around 900 women were killed in Pakistan last by their families in honour killings, according to human rights commission of Pakistan, a private organization.

    What a bunch of savages. How could one harm a woman let alone a woman with an unborn baby in her stomach which also happens to be this animals grandchild. The father should be stoned to death himself. What I would do him if given a chance. There would be no mercy shown.

        Thanks for the pictures of your family members. You need to ease up on the regret you have. You can not dwell on something that happened 1400 years ago. Time to get over it.

          I disagree with the comparison of ashura to honor killings, but you have to admit ya Farq – with some traditions you reach a point where it is time to move on.

        A mother simply so proud to damage her child for one version of being under Allah.
        A Simpleton. Not ‘savage’.
        The same kind as mothers who still perform versions of female circumcision and clitorization even though it has been outlawed in Saudi Arabia.
        A very weirdly bent ‘love’.
        Backed up, of course, by males who believe they should also take a little off their penis.
        Although … too rarely to the same extent. 😉

          I don’t see the analogy ya 5th – cutting your child’s face vs circumcisions. The male variety at least is considered more sanitary. It’s hard to sugarcoat ashura.

    Honor killing, who teach this to the poor goats?. Is it written in a book or was it a man made law.

    Pakistan need to punish the court, the families who were involved and stop this nonsense and backward mentality. I don’t remember God said to do this in the bible. I am sure in Korean is forbidden too. why do these stupid fanatics act and think like this? do you think Allah will be happy for what you’ve done in his name.

      Unfortunately they will always be backwards and God will never be pleased by this ritual of “honor killings”. Nshallah karma will come back to all these ignorant hypocrites.
