Pakistan: Family celebrates Ramadan by slitting pregnant daughter’s throat as they disapproved of her husband

A 22-year-old mother pregnant with her second child had her throat slit by her father, mother and brother because they disapproved of her husband.

Muqaddas Bibi married Taufiq Ahmed three years ago in defiance of her family, who considered a marriage for love – rather than an arranged marriage – shameful, police investigator Mohammad Arshad said.

The appalling murder is the latest horrific honour killing in conservative Muslim Pakistan.
