As wedding scenes go, it is a rather sedate affair.
But four women who joined in the celebrations are thought to have paid with their lives.
They are feared to have been the victims of honour killings after dancing with men.
In scenes from the wedding, they are pictured in heavy robes and headdresses, sitting on the floor while singing and clapping. Two men were apparently dancing next to them, while out of shot another person captures the moment on a mobile phone video camera. Soon afterwards, the women were said to have been shot or had their throats cut for breaking local customs that prevent them from dancing with the opposite sex.
Another woman, said to have been an accomplice, was also allegedly executed. Last night officials in Pakistan were travelling to the remote north-western village of Kohistan to investigate the claims. A tribal council of clerics known as a Jirga reportedly condemned the women to death for fornication and staining their families names.
Their actions were said to have brought shame on the community, which frowns on men and women dancing together or fraternising at all.
The chief secretary of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the province where the incident is said to have happened, argued that local laws did not allow women to travel in male company or face questions from a male judge.

You wouldn’t hear a word of criticism out of me if the world started nuking Islam. The U.S., Russia, China, India, Israel ... anybody who has nukes who wants to glassify these cretinous apeazoids can have at it.
Negatory Sir.....(didn’t make it sound like wasn’t did I)
Contractor. Getting as many as possible home whole and alive.
The Religion of Peace.
Says it all.
The only thing the average non muslim can really do is burn a Koran and upload the video every time there is a report like this. When the media catch on and stop reporting, buen a koran and upload the video just to piss them and the muslims off.
And if that makes them violent, well perhaps then our government will have to unshackle the military to deal with them permanently. And for those who scream “You’ll just get servicemen killed!!!” Here’s a tip. Many of those servicemen feel the same damn way.
The hills are aieeeeeeeeeeeeeee
N.O.W. call for you on the red phone.
“Its also funny how they never criticize the muslims at all, yet rip the Christians up and down because we support traditional marriage.”
I don’t bat an eye at these stories anymore; the war with Islam is between one culture that treats women as second-class citizens and another that treats men as second-class citizens. Who are we supposed to root for here?
Stories are posted about girls’ schools being targeted in Muslim countries, yet affirmative action keeps a lot of guys out of college (to the point where we have a 60:40 female:male ration in colleges - and taxpayer revenues are subsidizing those ladies’ educations).
Until we see "moderate Islam" loudly speaking out against events like this and regularly, consistently taking action up to and including capital punishment for "radical Islamic" acts such as in this story, this vision of "moderate Islam" our Lefties have will remain a pipe dream.
Muslims hate women ?
Regardless, thank you for your service.
Love of anything seems a foreign concept to muzzies.
This is probably how they eliminate the old, ugly,
infertile among them and get a new model. Grandma
probably just eats to much anyway, and after the sister
gets married, she’s useless, mom has already done her
If the muzzies killed ALL of their women the problem would soon go away.
