Pakistan is one of the countries in the world where gender violence is continuously increasing. A recent incident in this regard is related to Charsadda, a backward and conservative northwestern region of Pakistan. On Tuesday, the police continued a major raid in this northwestern region.

The first case of murder of the daughter by the father

An 18-year-old girl was allegedly shot dead by her father in Charsada district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa last week. The reason was that a video went viral on social media, the source or nature of which has not yet been confirmed. According to Mohammad Munir, a representative of the regional government, the video was taken while the victim, an 18-year-old girl, was dancing. The father saw his daughter dancing in the video and “his pride was awakened” and in a fit of rage he killed his daughter.

Another incident involving the murder of a daughter by a father

A 19-year-old girl who married her choice in the southern city of Karachi, Pakistan, was shot dead by her father outside a courtroom hours after the aforementioned Char Sada murder incident. Police officer Shabir Ahmed broke the news about this incident of murder.

According to human rights organization Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, every year more than 1000 people are killed in Pakistan under the pretext of saving family honor. Most of those involved in such incidents have been released under the “guardian pardon” law.

Why are laws wrong?

According to the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, the country approved a partial repeal of the law in 2016, but that did not prove enough to stop the controversial provision of the law. Meanwhile, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Youth Affairs Shiza Fatima Khawaja said that gender-based violence has become an epidemic in Pakistan.

Sara Malkani, a lawyer specializing in human rights, said, “If the state and society pay attention to the working mentality behind such incidents, such incidents of killings can be prevented.”
