THE HIDDEN TRUTH – HONOUR KILLING

737

You may not know about this but that doesn’t mean it didn’t happen.

It happened it actually happened.
This is an incident from winter’16 in the area that is supposed to be the centre of lahore “Gulberg 3”.

A guy named Umer who was just 19 years old fell in love with a girl who lived near her house , both the girl and the boy talked about it to their families. But both of the families were not in the favor of getting them married. So the boy stepped back when he saw no future with her and he didn’t want to go against his family too. So just to distract himself from her, he started praying and even started giving “azaan” in the mosque. Rather than doing something bad he left it all to Allah and started praying from Him. Meanwhile the girl ate some pills and was admitted to the hospital where the guy went and explained things to her and tried to persuade her. After a few days the girl called the guy and asked him to come to her home it was 2-3 am. Yea right it was too late but the girl emotionally blackmailed him, she asked him to come or else she’ll commit suicide.

The guy rushed to her house and he went inside the house through the main door and he was like in a hurry just to see the girl alive and all okay meanwhile the girl’s mother started shouting and everyone else in the house woke up too. Seeing every one coming in anger close to him he ran upstairs on the roof top but then he was beaten by them badly. He was pushed from the roof but he held the fence and he was hanging with the fence. The cruel people kicked him on his hands and he left the fence and fell down from the roof. A guy who was passing by took him on his bike to a hospital where he was kept for 4 days. Due to severe brain injury he was in coma and his mother visited him once no body else from the guy’s family came there except for the guy who took him to the hospital. And he died on the 4th day.

When that guy’s family was asked to file a case against the murderers they said they don’t want to they are leaving it all up to Allah and Allah will do justice one day. Imagine someone’s young son was killed and they weren’t even ready to file a case. Why? Is this because of the poor judicial system we have? Is this because of the kind of police we have? Or is this because of the most common thing “log kia kahen gay” “hmari izzat ka kia hoga” ?

Murder can never be justified whatsoever the reason is. And the murderer should always get a punishment that becomes a lesson for people. I was shocked to hear that the hospital too didn’t involve the police why? Because who would want to ruin the hospital’s image right? For a minute lets just think that the boy’s family filed a case against the murderers but tell me how much time and money would have been required to fight the whole case? On the other hand let’s just say if the boy went to the house to rob or misbehaved or anything else why didn’t the girl’s family too called the police at that time rather than killing the guy? Is our judicial system this much weak that people decide to take their revenge and justice themselves?

How many more people will have to die for the sake of this “gairat” and “izzat”?
Why didn’t they kill their daughter too? Why just the boy?
There are so many questions that’ll always remain unanswered.

There may be so many other cases like this that are hidden under the cover. If a murder case is taken so lightly guess how does they proceed the other rape and robbery cases. Don’t ever hide the things. Expose them. What has happened can never be changed but you can set a lifetime lesson for others. Don’t ever leave a criminal free if he has spoiled one life he may spoil someone else’s life too. This needs to stop now. Speak up people speak up. Spread awareness and let people know about it.
