Mother of two hot dead by father for ‘honour’



A mother of two was shot dead by her father for so-called family honour in Okara, on Wednesday, yet again shattering the myth that the parents always protect their children. This heinous crime was committed in Muzaffar Colony neighbourhood of Okara as the killer managed to flee the scene after claiming the life of Rimsha, his own daughter.
It is near impossible to have a sane debate on social issues in our country because of the deeply entrenched notions that can’t be challenged despite the horrific incidents like the one reported above becoming a routine. And one of these is that the family members are the ultimate saviours and protectors of children.—INP
