From MSN.com: The ex-husband of a British woman who was the victim of an alleged honour killing in Pakistan has admitted strangling her to death, police have said.
Samia Shahid, a 28-year-old beautician from Bradford, died while visiting relatives in her ancestral village in the northern Punjab region of the country. Her family said she had a heart attack, but her husband Syed Mukhtar Kazam believes she was murdered in a so-called honour killing because the family did not approve of her marriage to him.
Ms. Shahid’s former husband Choudhry Shakeel was arrested along with her father on suspicion of murder – and Mr. Shakeel has since confessed he drugged and strangled his ex-wife, according to Pakistani newspaper Dawn.
Deputy Inspector General Abubakar Khuda Bakhsh, the investigating officer in the case, told Reuters Mr. Shakeel and Ms. Shahid’s father, Choudhry Shahid, had appeared in court in Pakistan. “The court has sent them to police custody for physical remand of four days,” Mr Bakhsh said. “Once facts are established, we would be in a better position to say if it is an honour killing (which are often ignored by police) or a murder as revenge.”
The case has attracted attention because it came days after the high-profile honour killing of outspoken social media star Qandeel Baloch, dubbed ‘the Kim Kardashian of Pakistan’. Ms. Baloch’s brother has been arrested in relation to her death.

No matter how many times these type of killings are reported, our Dear Leaders will simply ignore them and continue to bring these heathens into America. Once these heathens have taken over, then they will also turn on the Dear Leaders. By then it will be to late. May the Lord have mercy.

Yeah, I get the sense that there’s no fixing this. In their “home countries” women are possessions. They can kill their “possessions” any time they like. They get in more trouble for stealing a neighbor’s goat.

The barbaric islamics are blood thirsty sewer rats, scum of the earth. They are the true infidels with no regard for life, even children and babies. They can have up to 4 wives for breeding, this is how they plan to take over countries.

It really must take an overload of testosterone to strangle an unconscious drugged woman. That this happens to Muslim women, time and time again, causes me great sorrow. In some ways, I suppose it is a relief for them to get away from their male relatives, and at least have some peace on the other side.

I wonder what the suicide rate is, men vs women. Do they ever leave suicide notes to their reasons for death? I wonder if women have murdered their abusers?

For an excellent and encyclopedic treatment on the warped world the Muslim religion is, I highly recommend Ann Barnhardt’s “Islamic Sexuality: A Survey of Evil.” It can be found on You Tube by those who have mirrored it, as I believe Miss Barnhardt complained (about two years ago) that You Tube pulled her original uploading of it. Please look for it and watch it. It’s worth about two hours of your time. And mirror it if you can, and pass it on to others. But be forewarned of a world of evil and perversion and grotesquery, and keep in mind… Read more »

Just musing in a rambling way, sort of like a ‘Saturday Night Live” segment “Deep Thoughts:” ——–
What if those (women) SUBJECTED to Sharia Law were armed and dangerous?” (courtesy of the NRA). HMMMMMMMMMM,,,,,,,,,,,,

Did she really have NO clue that her Muslim relatives might be dangerous? After 1,400 years of “honor” killings?
