ISLAMABAD — At least 943 Pakistani women and girls were murdered last year for allegedly defaming their family's honour, the country's leading human rights group said Thursday.
The statistics highlight the growing scale of violence suffered by many women in conservative Muslim Pakistan, where they are frequently treated as second-class citizens and there is no law against domestic violence.
. . .
"At least 943 women were killed in the name of honour, of which 93 were minors," wrote the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan in its annual report.
Over 900 Pakistani women were killed last year in the name of honour for allegedly shaming their families while nearly 4,500 others were the target of domestic violence, the country's top rights watchdog said in a report today.
. . .
The murderers in 180 cases were brothers of the victim and the husband in 226 cases. A majority of the women killed - 557 - were married.
Before being killed with firearms and blunt weapons, at least 19 women were raped while 12 were gang raped, the report said.

I just grieve for women--often falsely accused . . . and brutally beaten, tortured and gang raped before being horribly murdered. What a horror to endure.
May The Lord God make Himself real to them in their final moments.

Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.
He that sacrificeth unto any god, save unto the LORD only, he shall be utterly destroyed.
Ye shall keep the sabbath ... every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death.-
(oddly this actually occurred in the Bible but the punishment was not inflicted)
And if a man lie with his daughter in law, both of them shall surely be put to death.
And the daughter of any priest, if she profane herself by playing the whore, she profaneth her father: she shall be burnt with fire.-
From there Elisha went up to Bethel. As he was walking along the road, some boys came out of the town and jeered at him. “Get out of here, baldy!” they said. “Get out of here, baldy!” 24 He turned around, looked at them and called down a curse on them in the name of the LORD. Then two bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the boys.

Those religiously hell bent,warped and high strung (tending to be very nervous and easily excited) muslim men sure have designed one hell of a fabricated religion for themselves,all in the name of their supposedly real god allah,just to ensure their continuing control and domination and murder of their women...S+F for exposing this evil issue...
