Husband ‘has his throat slit in rare male ‘honour killing’ by wife’s father and brothers

A man was killed by his wife’s father and brothers because they disapproved of their marriage, Pakistani police said.

Muhammad Irshad, 43, reportedly had his throat slit in the middle of a marketplace in the Punjab city of Burewala on Friday, officials said today.

Each year, hundreds of Pakistani woman are murdered by family members who claim to be punishing them for perceived wrongs, but it is rare for men to be targeted in such attacks.

    • There was in fact a Christian honour killing in Pakistan just recently.
