Murder of four women condemned

KARACHI: An NGO working for women’s rights condemned the murder of four women in the name of honour and demanded that the killers be arrested, tried and punished sternly.
In a statement issued here on Friday the NGO, Aurat Foundation, said that the four victims — Naseem, Shahzadi, Nasiba and Safia — were killed in Abdoo Goth, Shikarpur, a few days back under the pretext of Karo-kari.It also demanded that the provision of compromise available in the recently passed law regarding Karo-kari, be taken out as owing to the loophole the murderers, who were close relatives, got away with the murder.

It said that at the time of passage of the Karo-kari law, civil society activists had pointed out that the provision of compromise would be misused and it had been proved correct as the cases of Karo-kari killings had not declined.It said that if the government was really serious about the protection of women it should withdraw the provision to compound / compromise available in the Karo-kari law and should take stern steps against the culprits so that it could act as a deterrent and discriminatory customs towards women could be stopped.
