Teenager Killed for Refusing Marriage Proposal

Honor Killing

Honor Killing

It is absurd that in this day and age, people would be subjected to such atrocities. I can’t imagine this happening anywhere in a civilized and forward thinking country.

These ridiculous honor killings keep happening every day in certain Islamic parts of the world and little or nothing is done about it.

Isn’t it only right for two parties to agree to be married? Why anyone would kill someone for refusing to marry them baffles me.

A Pakistani teen has died after a group of men set her on fire because of a rejected marriage proposal. Maria Sadaqat had burns on 85% of her body when she was admitted to the hospital in Islamabad on Sunday after a group of men came to her home.

The 19-year-old, who lived outside the Pakistani capital in Dewal, died Wednesday.

She was a teacher at a private school in the village, and her uncle said that her brutal death came after she rejected a proposal to marry the owner of the school’s nephew.

Abdul Basit added that the potential match was a “divorcee twice her age” and said that his niece had resigned from her job because of harassment from the principal, according to The Hindu. Before she died, Sadaqat gave a statement saying that the principal was among the men who tortured her, covered her in gas and burned her alive.

Pakistan’s Human Rights Commission has said almost 1,100 women were killed in “honor killings” last year.

Police say they have made one arrest in the attack on Sadaqat.
