Man Kills Sister For Marrying a Christian

Mubeen Rajhu, a 24 year old man, from Lahore, shot his sister Tasleem, 18, in the head at home in August after he discovered his Muslim sister had married a Christian.

 He had been taunted by co-workers who had seen Tasleem in their neighbourhood with the christian man. Rajhu, who is from a poor neighbourhood on the northern edge of Lahore, is being held by police.

He said he had demanded that his sister swear on the Quran that she would never marry the man. 'I told her I would have no face to show at the mill, to show to my neighbors, so don't do it. Don't do it. But she wouldn't listen.

 'I could not let it go. It was all I could think about. I had to kill her. There was no choice. There was no yelling, no shouting. I just shot her dead.' he said.
A co-worker at the mill,Ali Razza said the taunting of Rajhu about his sister had gone on for months. He said: 'He used to tell us, "If you don't stop, I will kill myself. Stop!" The guys here told him, "It would be better to kill your sister.

 But Mubeen's father Mohammed Naseer Rajhu puts the blame on his daughter. DailyMail reports he said: 'My family is destroyed. Everything is destroyed only because of this shameful girl. Even after death I am destroyed because of her.'

 This is another sad case of 'honour killings' in Pakistan which has been on the increase since 2013.
