This is how a terrible story gets worse. On Tuesday, Farzana Iqbal, a 25-year-old pregnant woman, was confronted by a mob of 20 or so of her family members near the steps of the top court in Lahore, Pakistan's second-biggest city. They proceeded to beat her to death with sticks and bricks, while police nearby looked on and did little.
The reason for the attack? She had chosen to marry a 45-year-old man named Muhammad Iqbal. That was a union deemed unacceptable by her family
Now, the media furor after the incident has turned up a new, stomach-turning wrinkle in the case: Police say the husband killed his first wife before marrying Farzana. After police sources in Lahore leaked unseemly details about his past to local media, Muhammad Iqbal himself confirmed to Agence France-Presse over the phone that he had strangled his first wife
Last year alone, Pakistan's Human Rights Commission reported 869 "honor killings" a misnomer of the highest order, describing incidents in which family members take it upon themselves to punish daughters who refuse arranged marriages or choose to follow their heart rather than family diktat. The real number, though, is probably much higher.

Worthless and bankrupt culture. If a billion Muslims were not on this planet, think of what a better place it would be.
According to the report in the UK Daily Mail, not only did the guy kill his first wife, he did so expressly to be able to marry the second one that got stoned to death. Ooops!
But always remember, boys and girls: All cultures are equal!
Muslim Call to Prayer is One of “Prettiest Sounds on Earth”
Gee, can we remember the Kenyan who said that?
Islam attracts the most stupid and violent males in the world. They are given license to kill people not of their faith and to oppress and murder females who “offend” them.
Under Pakistani law, if the relatives of the murdered wife forgive the murderer, then the murderer goes free. What a cesspool of a country.
If someone has a “Celebrate Diversity”, or “Coexist” bumper sticker on their vehicle, under Sharia Law, is it permissible, or maybe even required, to stone the owner to death?
When I was living in Turkey I would never have called it "pretty." Instead it sounded to me like a cat being tortured to death. However, I figured if it called them to prayer, there was nothing to stop me from praying too. It was a useful reminder.
