The news got a storm on social media when people heard that Qandeel Baloch is no more. What made the actual news was that she was murdered by her own brother. This fact behind the death of this most controversial Pakistani model disturbed everyone.
Till yesterday, Qandeel’s brother Waseem, had fled from the spot, but finally, the cops have caught hold of him and he has revealed the reason why he killed his own sister.
“She was bringing disrepute to our family’s honour and I could not tolerate it any further. I killed her around 11.30pm on Friday night when everyone else had gone to bed. My brother is not involved in the murder,”
said Waseem to the police.
Yes, Honour Killing!!!
He confessed that he killed Qandeel Baloch owing to her risqué videos and photos on social media. However, this murder was just 3 days after past marriages of Qandeel were revealed.
In the past, Qandeel had appealed to the Interior Ministry of Pakistan for security as she had been receiving a lot of threatenings from her brother, but unfortunately, she didn’t get any security.
While many had criticised this act, there were some who were ‘Happy’ for the same since they believed Qandeel is nothing but a disgrace to their country. There was even a call for a bill for putting an end to ‘Honour killings’ in Pakistan. Even on social media, people had a mixed reaction to the death of this model.
A Senator, Sherry Rahman stated…
“Assuming that Qandeel Baloch’s brother will probably be arrested and punished for murder because of the high profile [nature] of the case, the fact remains that an essentially right-wing government is sitting on vital amendments in the Pakistan Criminal Procedure Code that would disallow justice to be privatised for crimes against women.”
But was it right?
