Top Pakistani Model Murdered By Her Brother in Honor Killing
by

Qandeel Baloch, a model considered Pakistan’s version of Kim Kardashian, was strangled in her sleep by her brother in an honor killing during a visit to her parents’ home. Baloch, whose given name was Fouzia Azeem, was 25.

Her brother showed no remorse for his actions stating, “She was bringing disrepute to our family’s honour and I could not tolerate it any further. I killed her around 11.30pm on Friday night when everyone else had gone to bed.”

Given Baloch’s status on social media, perhaps this will focus greater attention on Muslim honor killings. Between 2008 and 2013, it is estimated that 3,000 women were murdered by way of honor killing.

This problem is not confined to Muslim majority countries. On average, two dozen women in this country are killed each year by way of honor killing. With the acceptance of Syrian refugees, this number is bound to go up in coming years. Unfortunately, I believe our media will be no more forthcoming in covering honor killings with any more candor than they did with the Orlando attack. In other words, the mainstream media won’t discuss honor killings unless they can find a way to blame Republicans and Christians for it.
