A teenage girl was ruthlessly murdered by her own aunt in Muzaffargarh. This incident took place because the victim had refused the proposal of her aunt’s son for marriage.
Muslimah, 16, was living with her maternal aunt after her father went missing from a coal mine years ago. Her mother had re-married a man from the Mingora area of Swat.

The complaint was filed by her uncle Wazir Khan who shared that the young girl was being pressurized by her aunt to marry her 22-year-old son in Muzaffargarh.
But, she refused because she wasn’t ready to take such a big decision at this time. Unfortunately, she was poisoned to death by her aunt.
Moreover, the police officials have stated that the girl was buried in a rush and her aunt’s family insisted that she passed from natural causes. But the father’s relatives refused to believe their story and demanded an autopsy of her body.
In the FIR filed at the Alpuri police station, Sher Ali and his father Hamil Kareem have also been named as culprits in the murder from Muzaffargarh.
It’s High Time Violence Against Women Stops!
Violence against women is a pervasive issue in many parts of the world, and it takes many forms. Women are often subjected to gender-based attacks, revenge, and are even considered as property when it comes to resolving tribal issues. Such violence has far-reaching consequences that not only harm individual women but also undermine the social fabric of entire communities. It is essential that we take concerted action to put an end to this kind of violence and ensure that women everywhere are safe and respected.
Gender-based violence is a serious problem that affects women all over the world. In many societies, women are seen as inferior to men and are treated as second-class citizens. This attitude can manifest in many ways, including physical violence, sexual assault, and emotional abuse. Women are often subjected to domestic violence, forced marriages, honour killings, and other forms of violence that are meant to control them and keep them subservient.
One of the most insidious forms of gender-based violence is revenge. Women are often targeted for revenge by men who feel that they have been slighted or wronged by them. This can take many forms, including physical violence, rape, and even murder. Women who are the victims of revenge attacks often suffer from long-lasting physical and psychological trauma, and many are left feeling scared and vulnerable.

In addition to being subjected to gender-based attacks and revenge, women are often seen as property when it comes to resolving tribal issues. In many traditional societies, women are considered to be the property of their husbands or fathers, and they have no say in how they are treated or what happens to them. When tribal disputes arise, women are often used as bargaining chips or pawns, and their lives and well-being are not taken into account.
It is crucial that we take action to end violence against women and to ensure that women are treated as full and equal members of society. This requires a multi-faceted approach that addresses the root causes of gender-based violence and provides support to women who have been victimized. We must work to change attitudes towards women and promote gender equality in all aspects of society. We must also provide women with the resources and support they need to escape violent situations and rebuild their lives.
