Honour killing Punjabi Zeenat's'crime was getting married to her Pashtun boyfirned Hasan Khan a motorcycle mechanic and her mother said the teenager had brought shame on the family

A case was registered on the complaint of victim's husband, Hassan Khan, who in his statement contended that he married Zeenat on May 29, 2016 in a local court.

A mother in Pakistan has been sentenced to death on Tuesday, January 17, for the murder of her daughter.

Parveen's son Ahmer Rafique was sentenced to life in prison for his role in the crime.

The deceased was first strangled and then set on fire by Bibi a week after she eloped and married a man of her choice.

When she was arrested, Parveen told police she had "no regrets" and the killing was because her daughter had "brought shame to the family". Hasan was a Pashtun while Zeenat was a Punjabi which was said to be the main cause of her family's disapproval, forcing them to elope. I have killed my daughter for misbehaving and giving our family a bad name'.

Zeenat's husband Khan told local TV station Geo News previous year that the pair had eloped. The "free will marriage" Zeenat Rafiq participated in displeased her family so that they beat her until she bled, a few days later the mother of the young woman burned her alive.

German Vice Chancellor Rejects Trump's German Car Remarks
Donald Trump seems in no mood to relent on his war on manufacturers who make their products outside and sell in America. German carmakers employ about 33,000 workers in the USA and German automotive suppliers about 77,000 more, the VDA said.

"When we saw her body, she had strangulation marks on her neck", Rafiq's mother-in-law Shahida Bib said.

According to Hassan, his loved one told him that she knew "that she would be killed by her family" for what she has done.

The independent Human Rights Commission of Pakistan said violence against women was rife in Pakistan and that there were more than 1,100 so-called "honour killings" in 2015.

Under the new law, relatives can forgive convicts in the case of a death sentence, but they would still have to face a mandatory life sentence.

Previously killers who were relatives of the victim could escape punishment by seeking forgiveness for the crime from other family members.

After social media star Qandeel Baloch was murdered by her brother in July, Pakistan's parliament passed a legislation against "honour killings", three months after she was killed.
