In Pakistan, the woman who killed his daughter for disobedience
A woman in Pakistan was sentenced to death for burning his own daughter, who was subjected to so-called "honour killing".

Court in Lahore sentenced Parveen Bibi to death, accusing her of murdering his daughter. The woman's daughter was killed due to a fact that has brought disgrace to his family, said a police spokesman Nabil Gazanfar Tuesday. Son of Parvin was sentenced to life imprisonment for his role in the crime.

18-year-old Zeenat Rafiq was strangled and burned at the stake by her brother and mother in June 2016, after he had run away from home against their will. Rafiq lived with her husband about a month before she visited her house in Lahore in the hope of a reconciliation with his family. But when Rafik came home, her mother and brother tie her to the bed, doused with gasoline and set on fire, police said.

Thanks to a new law banning "honour killings", which was adopted in Pakistan in October, neither Parvin nor her son would not be eligible for pardon , even if another member of the family forgives them for their crime. Earlier, the killer could go unpunished in many cases, creating what critics describe as a culture of impunity. Now, the killer will face a minimum penalty of imprisonment for 25 years.

According to the Commission on human rights in Pakistan, nearly 300 women were victims of such killings in the first half of 2016 To report 2015 of the world economic forum, Pakistan ranked 144 out of 145 countries on the gender inequality.
