The “nation” of Pakistan over the past sixty years has gradually, but consistently, become a dysfunctional state of anarchy and madness. In its origin there were educated leaders seeking to create a modern secular focused nation that would adhere to the Muslim religion, but also respect people of other faiths. They wanted to create a MODERN nation that would adhere to ideas regarding the role of women in society. Instead of that dream becoming reality, the dream has been transformed into a nightmare of ancient ideas running rampant. During the past eight years in Pakistan, at least 3000 women have been murdered by their relatives because of allegedly “immoral behavior” that violated family “honor.”
Finally, a Pakistani Court has imposed the death sentence upon the family of Farzana Parveen who was brutally murdered by -father, brother, two cousins– because she married the wrong man. This murder took place outside the gates of the Lahore High Court! Imagine this family beating to death their daughter, their sister, their cousin, in broad daylight in the center of a city! The Court imposed a death sentence upon the group of four. They continue insisting the issue is “honor.” How come a man can marry whomever he desires and it never violates family HONOR?
