Honor Killing: Pakistani mother burned her daughter alive

A Pakistani woman has been arrested after she doused her own daughter with kerosene and burnt her alive as she married another man without the family’s permission. 

The mother was arrested the very same day as the murder. Above 1000 women are reportedly killed every year, in the name of the nonexistent honor killings in the country of Pakistan.

The mother Parveen Rafiq, blatantly confessed to restraining her 18-year-old daughter, named Zeenat, and setting her on fire.
