943: Reported number of Pakistani women and girls murdered in “honor” killings in 2011
“Around 595 of the women killed in 2011 were accused of having “illicit relations” and 219 of marrying without permission.
“Some victims were raped or gang raped before being killed, the Commission said. Most of the women were killed by their brothers and husbands.
“Only 20 of 943 killed were reported to have been provided medical aid before they died, the Commission wrote.”
Honor killings—part and parcel of Islam, regardless of country.
“ . . . good women are the obedient . . . As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them.”
Qur’an 4.34, Medina
