Honor killing in Pakistan over a broken marriage and a Muslim’s relationship with a non-Muslim in Britain. “Secret love-child ‘sparked honour killing massacre’ of British family in Pakistan,” from the Daily Mail, May 30 (thanks to Alexandre):
An Asian man whose marriage breakdown allegedly led to the murders of his parents and sister may have split up with his wife because he had a love-child with a secret girlfriend.
Kamar Mahmood separated from his wife Nabeela after being married for nine years.
It is understood that the shame of the couple’s split – and the news that Mr Mahmood had allegedly cheated on his wife with a white, blonde girl – outraged Nabeela’s family so much that they decided to take revenge.
Nabeela’s three brothers and two other men are accused of shooting dead Mr Mahmood’s father Mohammad Yusaf, 51, his mother Pervaze, 49, and sister Tania, 22, who were in Pakistan for the marriage of their youngest son, Asad, 24.
The victims were sprayed with bullets as they prayed at a relative’s graveside in a village in Gujrat province….
Inspector Meraj Baig, a Gujrat officer investigating the murders, said: ‘His wife found out he was involved with a British girl and that he was preparing to marry her. She told his parents and other family members and then her own brothers, who were furious.
There were quarrels between the two families and, ultimately, it is alleged, it led to murder.’…
