Pakistani Father Kills Six Daughters

FAISALABAD: A man killed six of his daughters on suspicion that two of them had relations with boys in the neighborhood.
Arif Mubashir called his teenage daughters to his room and shot them one by one, while the rest of the family, including their mother Musarrat watched.

After the killings, Musarrat called the police, The Express Tribune reports.

Mubashir shot the girls reportedly after their brother said two of them were seeing local boys. He told police officials that he had killed his daughters because they were 'without honour'.

According to the police, Mubashir said his daughters, Sameena, 14, and Razia, 16, were in a relationship with college boys from the neighborhood and the sisters had helped each other.

“I should have been tolds immediately but the girls sided with each other. They were both corrupt,” Mubashir was reported to have told the police
. Police officials have taken Mubashir into custody and filed a case against him. “He does not regret what he did. He boasted that he would do it all over again if he had to,” Sial told reporters.

Pakistan has repeatedly been termed as one of the least women-friendly countries. There have been many honor killings in Pakistan and abroad. Many women die at the hands of their husbands, brothers, and fathers.  It seems no one is watching out for these women who become victims of their own loved ones.
