We have been following the honor killings around the world where women are beaten and killed for attempting to marry for love or seek education in traditional Muslim countries. The latest murderer is Rahim Dad who can claim to have killed not just one but two wives for “honor.” Dad slit his wife’s throat in Bara Qabristan, Pakistan after an argument.
Dad was unapologetic and said that he killed Fouzia due to his belief that she had an affair with another man. Notably, that was the same reason that he killed his first wife and mother of his three children 15 years ago. Dad is 50 and his second wife was 30. The fact that this man could murder two wives for “honor” shows the plight of women in many Muslim countries. Such murders are reportedly on the rise and Dad personifies the trend.
