    Pregnant woman stoned to death by family in front of High Court.

    A PREGNANT woman was stoned to death by her own family in front of a Pakistani high court on Tuesday for marrying the man she loved.

    Nearly 20 members of the woman’s family, including her father and brothers, attacked her and her husband with batons and bricks in broad daylight before a crowd of onlookers in front of the high court of Lahore, police investigator Rana Mujahid said.

    Hundreds of women are murdered every year in Muslim-majority Pakistan in so-called “honour killings” carried out by husbands or relatives as a punishment for alleged adultery or other illicit sexual behaviour, but public stoning is extremely rare.

    Mr Mujahid said the woman’s father has been arrested for murder and that police were working to apprehend all those who participated in the “heinous crime.”

    Another police officer, Naseem Butt, identified the slain woman as Farzana Parveen, 25, and said she had married Mohammad Iqbal against her family’s wishes after being engaged to him for years.

    Her father, Mohammad Azeem, had filed an abduction case against Mr Iqbal, which the couple was contesting, said her lawyer, Mustafa Kharal. He confirmed that she was three months pregnant.

    Arranged marriages are the norm among conservative Pakistanis, who view marriage for love as a transgression.

    The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, a private group, said in a report last month that some 869 women were murdered in honour killings in 2013.

    But even Pakistanis who have tracked violence against women expressed shock at the brutal and public nature of Tuesday’s slaying.

    “I have not heard of any such case in which a woman was stoned to death, and the most shameful and worrying thing is that this woman was killed in front of a court,” said Zia Awan, a prominent lawyer and human rights activist.

    He said Pakistanis who commit violence against women are often acquitted or handed light sentences because of poor police work and faulty prosecutions.

    “Either the family does not pursue such cases or police don’t properly investigate. As a result, the courts either award light sentences to the attackers, or they are acquitted,” he said.

    Parveen’s relatives had waited outside the court, which is located on a main downtown thoroughfare. As the couple walked up to the main gate, the family members fired shots in the air and tried to snatch her from Mr Iqbal, her lawyer said.

    When she resisted, her father, brothers and other relatives started beating her, eventually pelting her with bricks from a nearby construction site, Mr Iqbal said.

    Mr Iqbal, 45, said he started seeing Parveen after the death of his first wife, with whom he had five children.

    “We were in love,” he told the Associated Press. He alleged that the woman’s family wanted to fleece money from him before marrying her off.

    “I simply took her to court and registered a marriage,” infuriating the family, he said.

    Parveen’s father surrendered after the incident and called the murder an “honour killing,” Mr Butt said.

    “I killed my daughter as she had insulted all of our family by marrying a man without our consent, and I have no regret over it,” Mr Mujahid, the police investigator, quoted the father as saying.

    Mr Mujahid said the woman’s body had been handed over to her husband for burial.

    Meanwhile, in Pakistan...

    A couple arrested in Pakistan on suspicion of killing their 15-year-old daughter with acid say they carried out the attack because she looked at a boy.

    The girl's father told the BBC that they feared she would bring dishonour on their family. Her mother said it was her "destiny" to die that way.

    I had a freelance tax consultancy contract for a firm of accountants in London many years ago where almost all of the staff were Pakistanis. They couldn't get women to stay there for more than two or three months.

    Jesus! What sort of backwards society is Islam, expecting sin sot from a widower with 5 children? He was a good catch at just 20 years older than the bride.

    I'd say their chances of getting anything now have been seriously hampered.

    This is not a religious thing, it's a Pakistani thing. I live in a Muslim country and people just get divorced and remarry. If there are any arguments, it's usually over money.

    Pakistani men are inbred, backward, violent and smelly.

    Their women however are great, I worked for a year with a bunch of pakistani women in london, a more fun loving open minded group of co workers would be hard to find, and like thai women, complained incessantly about their lazy, bullying, benefit scrounging male bretheren.

    Immigrant paki males seem to retain that backward unwashed drooling village idiot mentality that you pick up from news reports such as this one, with a reputation for underachievment, whilst the womenfolk appear to be eager to throw off their shackles and embrace their newfound freedoms.

    Actually it's not just a Pakistani thing - a fifth of the world's "Honour killings" are in India, and many of them are down to the Caste system.

    Tops the world list of places 'not to be born a women'.

    You wouldn't even describe Pakistan as a developing nation, more a sadistic bunch of fucks.

    Mr Iqbal, 45, said he started seeing Parveen after the death of his first wife, with whom he had five children.

    “We were in love,” he told the Associated Press. He alleged that the woman’s family wanted to fleece money from him before marrying her off.

    “I simply took her to court and registered a marriage,” infuriating the family, he said.
    what isnt mentioned here is that this pathetic male pakistani throwback murdered his first wife by strangling her in order to marry this new wife, and avoided punishment because his family came to some convenient islamic court compromise with the family of the dead wife.

    a pox on these backward people and their dangerous beliefs.

    Pakistan Stoning: Widower 'Killed First Wife'



    The husband of a pregnant Pakistani woman who was stoned to death by her family has reportedly admitted to strangling his first wife.


    Mohammad Iqbal, 45, told news agency AFP he murdered his first wife so he could marry 25-year-old Farzana Iqbal, who was bludgeoned to death outside a courthouse for her choice of husband.


    "I was in love with Farzana and killed my first wife because of this love," he said.
    Iqbal said he had been spared prison after his son forgave him for the killing - under the same controversial "blood money" laws that could see Farzana's killers ultimately go unpunished.


    According to AFP, Mr Iqbal then switched off his phone and has not responded to subsequent calls.
    However a senior police officer investigating Farzana Iqbal's killing has verified his claims.
    "Iqbal was a notorious character and he had murdered his first wife six years ago," Zulfiqar Hameed said.


    "He was arrested and later released after a compromise with his family."
    He said a report detailing Mr Iqbal's past would be handed to the government.
    Mr Iqbal has made several public appeals for justice since his three months pregnant second wife's murder on Tuesday.


    He alleges that several members of her family hit her in the head with bricks outside Lahore High Court while police stood by and watched.
    "I begged them to help us but they said, 'this is not our duty'," he told Reuters. "I took off my shirt (to be humble) and begged them to save her."
    Her family was reportedly angered by her decision to marry Mr Iqbal rather than a cousin who was selected for her.


    According to police her father, brother and former fiance all took part in the attack.
    The couple were due to testify in court that their marriage was genuine after her family alleged she had been abducted.


    The brazen nature of the killing, which took place on one of the busiest roads of Pakistan's second biggest city has shocked the country.


    There are fears that the alleged killers could walk free due to a provision in Pakistani law which allows perpetrators to be let off if they are forgiven by the victim's relatives or if the relatives accept so-called "blood money" over the crime.
    Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has described the killing as "totally unacceptable" and demanded to know why nearby police did not intervene.


    However Lahore police chief Shafiq Ahmad has denied that police witnessed the killing.
    He said: "By the time police reached the scene, the lady had been murdered."
    He added that the victim's father was arrested after the incident.


    The remaining suspects have not been found.


    According to the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan 869 women died in so-called honour killings last year alone.
    British Foreign Secretary William has called on Pakistan to take immediate action to prevent further killings.
    He said: "I am shocked and appalled by the death of Farzana Parveen - both for the appalling manner of her death, and the unspeakable cruelty and injustice of murdering a woman for exercising her basic right to choose who to love and marry."
    "There is absolutely no honour in honour killings and I urge the government of Pakistan to do all in its power to eradicate this barbaric practice."

    The wholesome logic and beauty of the case is breathtaking. No Shakespeare could come up with a tragedy like this, it took no less than Islam itself. Poor Juliet knew of course that Romeo killed his first wife, but loved him nonetheless. Are there more twists to come? Well, it wasn't really a stoning but she was beaten to death, but using the term at every turn makes it clear that Islam is to blame.

    And Pakistan has been given billions of Euro/$$ over the years in aid.
    Nice to see how effective that investment in human capital has been.
