A woman in the Pakistani city of Lahore allegedly doused her teenage daughter with kerosene and set her ablaze Wednesday. The incident is being cast by authorities as an honor killing; the mother, Parveen Rafiq, was apparently upset with her daughter for eloping with a man. According to the Associated Press, authorities said Parveen tied daughter Zeenat, 17, to a cot before lighting her on fire. Police eventually arrived at the home — in a crammed, working-class area of the city — to find Zeenat's charred body, which reportedly also showed signs of beating and strangulation. They arrested the mother and are searching for her son, who allegedly assisted in the killing, according to local reports.
How could a mother carry her daughter for 9 months, give birth and then discard her in this vile and cruel way. The mother stated she had no regrets ans showed no remorse. Cultural and religion honor murders are in play once again. Some people still don't think that killing a woman in the name of honor is actually a crime.www.washingtonpost.com... e-say/?wpinl_wv&wpmm=1

Because brainwashing exists in religion. It's a very sad truth.

The water is bad in that area.

Maybe theres radioactive particles there from a past civilization or aliens, possibly meteorites with something in them that cause brain disorders from the last cataclysm..

All possible theories.

Such a sad and tragic occurrence.

And so heinous.


POS should be hung. And anyone who aided her in the murder, because it's likely others were involved in this.

She is a true conservative, ATS should be applauding her.

Maybe she can speak at the Republican convention.

I will never understand what happens in a person mind that they could harm their own child. This is an act I simply cannot understand.

Yes, let's take an incident that happened in a country of extremists and compare it to American Politics. That's totally rational.

Yes, it's inpossible to understand the mind of a indoctrinated and brainwashed individual.

Contrary to what some liberals say, some cultures really are better than others.

Maybe, but unfortunately the poster has a valid point. Some people would say just that. Even on ATS.

Honour?

No. There is no honour in murdering ones kin, leave alone ones own child.

Jealousy probably played a part. The mother was jealous of her child, for having the guts to do what her mother never did, shuffle from under the chains about her heart, and do what her heart required of her.

For shame, that the mothers jealousy was so strong that she ignored the biological imperative and murdered her child. What an inhuman monster.

Yes that could have played a part. Also the religion/tribal culture is a factor from what i have read seen over there. They still live in the time machine of their religion,which has not advanced in it's thinking when it embraces things like honor murder. Shame for all of islam.....

I would love to take some of you over there and see if you can still trivialize moments like this. You have a really screwed up world view if you believe what you write!

The rationale at work here is that the daughter defied the wishes of her family. She is not allowed to marry without their consent which they did not give. Thus, she is basically dishonoring them and making them look bad.

Culturally, they have to blot that stain on their family honor out. Usually this manifests as great violence and mutilation against the offending woman, even to her death. After all, men cannot bear the shame of dishonor.

This is how Romeo and Juliet manifests in those cultures. The two don't poison themselves. The girls' family kill her to save their own so-called honor.

And many of those on the left want to import people who have this culture and think and behave this way.

So I guess we'll see who supports and defends whose right to do what in the near future.

There have already been murders carried out by Muslim men in grisly fashion on their wives and female relatives and many conservatives have already wondered if they were honor killings, but then people like yourself tell us to stop being Islamophobic.

So, some people, even on ATS, tend to talk out both sides of their mouths when it comes to things like this.

HOLD up here, your side is always touting the ISLAM is the religion of Peace and Love, and that all CONSERVATIVES are bigoted monsters that cannot accept the culture of another. OR that this is their culture and we have NO opinion in it whatsoever. Seems to me that you are Flip Flopping your agenda my friend.

I am wondering, I believe in cultures like this one, the girl is usually betrothed out at a young age. the agreement has already been made, and that agreement was between the parents, with the young girl and young boy not really having much say. so, what kind of pressure did the girl ignoring that agreement and running off with another put onto her family? if she was betrothed out to a more powerful family, what the mother did might have been more out of fear for the entire family, weather she liked it or not.
