Dear Attorney General Ausaf,
A young Pakistani woman was burned to death because she married a man against her family’s wishes. Her mother confessed to the gruesome attack, showing no remorse. We demand the maximum punishment for all involved in this horrific murder.
The 18-year-old woman was reportedly tied to a bed, covered in gasoline, and burned to death as punishment for marrying the man she loved. Her actions brought dishonor to her family and, per tribal custom, this punishment fit her so-called crime.
Nearly 1,100 women were killed by their relatives in Pakistan last year. This horrific custom cannot be tolerated any longer. We demand the maximum sentence for all involved in this innocent woman’s murder.
