Death Desert

posted by on September 3 at 12:05 PM

Five women buried alive in name of honour:

Three teenage girls along with their two close elderly relatives were shot at before being buried alive in a desert of Balochistan by their tribesmen in the name of honour.

The shocking reports of this horrible incident reaching the capital from different quarters revealed that the girls studying in classes 10 to 12 intended to marry men of their choice through a civil court by defying the centuries-old tribal traditions. When the fuming elders of Umrani tribe came to know about the intentions of these girls to appear before a local court, they picked them up from their homes along with two of their elderly women relatives. The crying girls were pushed into official cars and driven to a deserted area. There they were pushed out of the cars, made to stand in a queue and volleys of shots fired at them.

As the bleeding girls fell on the sand, the tribesmen dragged them into a nearby ditch and levelled it with earth and stones before the girls could breathe their last. As the two shocked elderly women tried to rescue the hapless girls, they too were gunned down and buried in the same manner.

But even worse than the killings: “Legislators indifferent to sorry end of women buried alive”:

As the government remained indifferent towards the sorry end of the five women who were buried alive in a desert of Balochistan last month, it has been revealed that the influential man who had killed the women is a žserial killerÓ and loves to kill women.

The alleged serial killer had reportedly killed three persons, including one girl, before killing the five women. But he has never been captured or punished for his acts against humanity. Even parliamentarians who had raised hue and cry over the issue of Dr Aafia Siddiqui and passed a joint resolution in this regard remained silent on the sorry fate of the five women.

Utterly horrible.

@1: Really? REALLY? To even attempt to draw a parallel between this horrific act of senseless brutality and our rather tame political scandals is beyond distasteful. You ought to be ashamed.

I don't see what's so horrible about that.

That's Ms. Palin's ideal of a future Alaskan country, separate from America.

Troll Psychology 101. Please don't feed the trolls. Some of them think that the more comments they get, the smarter they must be.

Didn't you get the memo Charles? Slog is supposed to be all 17-year-old pregnant girls all the time. No time for this stuff about the brown people when there's Palin mud to be thrown. Get with the program!

Nice culture.

Let me be the first to say that our culture is infinitely superior to these a**wipes.

this is a nice reminder for me that we really, really did evolve from monkeys.
livin' at a research station right now...the other day a researcher brought home a baby monkey that had been killed by an adult male from it's own social group. spinal column severed BY TEETH.
other reminder: it's often just men...ooops, male monkeys that do this kind of thing.

Afghanistan would look nice as a molten lake of glass, don't you think?

@13: Hmm, investing in future beach front spots could be very profitable.

@13 - um, even if we used our nukes, it wouldn't make a lake of glass - at most half of it would.

Mountains are a lot harder to melt with nukes than you think.

But it would be glacier-free!
