North Waziristan: Two teenage girls killed in the name of ‘honor’ after a 50-second video leaked on social media

Family members of the victims were pressured by locals to kill the girls in order to save the family's 'honor.'


Two teenage girls were reportedly murdered in the name of ‘honor’ in North Waziristan after their video was leaked on social media.

Family members of the victims were pressured by locals to kill the girls in order to save the family’s ‘honor.’

According to sources, the police raided the site on Friday morning to arrest the criminals, but they had fled. However, the police fear that the culprits may have escaped to Afghanistan after crossing the border.

Human rights activists Nighat Dad condemned the incident, requesting the authorities to catch the perpetrators.

“Three young girls were murdered in Waziristan in the name of honor today because a video of them had leaked among the local people, and got on social media. I cannot stop thinking of the women murdered in Kohistan for the same reason and Qandeel Baloch,” Dad tweeted.


In 2016, social media star Qandeel Baloch was killed in the name of honor by her brother after her selfies with an Islamic scholar went viral on social media. Earlier in 2012, five women in Kohistan were murdered when a video showing them clapping during a festive event emerged online.

  • ham khatm e nabuwat par khare huwe, or usi nabi ki ummat ke betion ki sath ziyadti par us trah na khare ho skay ?, Hamare andar iman ni aqeeda hai, sadly.

  • Every second day we are receiving same kind of news from kpk and waziristan. 18 years shot d as the food was cold. Young wife tortured cause iftar food was not tasty. I guess there is more to the story than what we have on media. A collective effort to disarm the people I guess.

  • چیزیں اکثر اس طرح ہوتی نہیں جس طرح دکھائی یا سمجھائی جاتی ہیں ، ویسے اس بات کو اگر ایک دوسرے زاویے سے دیکھا جائے تو کیا ایسا نہیں ہے  کہ جنگل میں رہتے ہوۓ جنگل کے قوانین کو بھی ملحوظ خاطر رکھنا ہوگا ؟ یعنی ایسا ہی کہ آپ جس قبیلے میں رہتے ہیں اسکا مزاج اچھے سے جانتے اور پہچانتے ہیں ، تو ایسا کام کرنا خود کشی بھی ہوگی کے آپ وہ کام کریں جس کام کی سزا جنگل کے قانون میں موت ہے

    اس بات کا یہ مطلب نہیں کہ میں اس حق میں ہوں کہ جو ہوا ٹھیک ہوا
