In Muzaffargarh, a city in Pakistan, a young girl named Asiya killed her husband and in-laws. Asiya was just 21 years old and was forced by her parent to marry a guy against her choice.
She got married to a man named Amjad Akram and just after 2 months, she murdered 15 members of her in-laws including her husband. Unfortunately, the girl who was in love with another guy, she hatched a plan to kill her husband by poisoning her husband milk.
She poisoned her husband’s glass of milk but failed in her plan. Her plan was just to kill her husband in order to get rid of him. Her mother in law took that poisoned milk to prepare lassi. Lassi is made by blending milk and yogurt.
This lassi was served to her husband’s family, 27 members of that family drank that poisoned lassi. 15 people died including her husband and the rest are hospitalized fighting between life and death. Police arrested Asiya Bibi, a man and his aunt for being partners in her crime.
It was revealed that the man who is arrested is Asiya’s lover and his aunt helped them to hatch the murder plot.
Forced marriages are common deeply traditional in Pakistan especially in rural areas where women are already fighting for their rights. Parents don’t care about the wish of their children when it comes to choosing a life partner.
As we all know forced marriages are not even allowed in Islam.
