An 18-year-old Pakistani has survived being shot and thrown in a canal by her family for marrying the man she loved, police said, weeks after the "honor killing" of another woman drew worldwide condemnation.

Ali Akbar, a local police official, said Saba Maqsood had been attacked and shot by her father, uncle, brother and aunt and thrown into the waterway in the city of Hafizabad in Punjab province.

"It is an honor-related incident," Akbar told Reuters.

"The victim, Saba ... married her neighbor Muhammad Qaiser for love five days ago against the wishes of her family. They took her to Hafizabad, shot her twice and threw her in the canal after putting her in a sack, presuming that she was dead."

I suggest that all Pakis in the US go back to Pakistan to help “progress” Pakistan into the 9th Century.

A few thermo nuclear devices would cure the world of these ills.

A secret society of avengers would go a long way toward stopping these cowards.

Any islamist worth his salt knows you stone the woman in a case like that.

Pikers.

So far so good. Let’s see if she survives a few stones to the head.

Actually, I agree. Any number of our Special Forces with cart blanch ROE and the full support of all American Armed Forces if needed, could eliminate nearly all of these scumbags. The can’t be that many truly evil people in the world.

Let’s get it done...covertly as possible. Loud and strong if there is open resistance.

I had in mind a covert batallion of Islamic women putting the knife to every misogynist muzzie who harms a woman.
