We condemn the brutal killing of Farzana Parveen!


Shirkat Gah- Women’s Resource Centre condemns the brutal killing of Farzana Parveen by her brothers and father in front of the police and other by standers right outside the Lahore High Court where she had gone to record her statement in favour of her husband.

Farzana had married a man of her choice against the wishes of her family as a result of which her family attacked her outside the Court premises, inflicting injuries fatal enough to result in her death.

We demand that the killers be brought to justice and the police officers who were silent bystanders be punished for aiding and abetting the crime through their inaction.
