Pakistan passed a law against "honour killings"
Under the new law, perpetrators of so-called "honour killings" can no longer remain at large in Pakistan.

The law, which was not very popular when it was first introduced in March, passed unanimously in both houses of Parliament on Thursday. "Vicious circle is now destroyed," said Senator Babar Farhatullah. Now, the killer will face a minimum sentence of 25 years imprisonment, said Babar. "No assassin will be able to get away with impunity, even if his parents or family members will forgive him for the murder of his sister, wife or mother in the name of" honor."

Prime Minister of Pakistan Muhammad Nawaz Sharif, is under pressure, he is required to prosecute those who commit violence against women. "Honour killings", usually associated with a woman who supposedly dishonored the family.

"Women are the most important part of our society, and I believe in their rights and opportunities. They will receive protection and liberation, so they can equally contribute to the development and prosperity of our country.", the Prime Minister said.

Parliament has also passed another bill that would help find rapists through DNA testing. This step has come 3 months after the star social media was murdered by her brother who thought she brought shame to his family.

In July Waseem Belug strangled his sister, Candide Baloch, in his house, because he believed that "girls are born to stay at home and to follow the traditions." He admitted that he filmed the murder and expressed no remorse, saying: "I'm proud of what I did."

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