Say no to honor killing: Bulorjan Aslam
“Sania, you know your father very well. He won’t allow you for anything,” said Sania’s mother. “Ammi Jan, I am facing tough wordings in my studies and for that I want a cell phone.”
“Why don’t you understand, Sania?” Added her mother. “I am losing my position, Ammi; I don’t want others to cross me at any rate,” said Sania in a worried tone.
“Okay, keep calm sweetheart. I will try my level best to convince him in this regard,” said Sania’s mother while hugging her lovingly.
Next morning when her mom told her father, he started arguing with her and shouted at her. In-between the argument he became emotional and slapped her. When Sania saw her father’s cruel behavior, she became so insecure and upset. She stopped demanding for a cell phone. When her exams got finished and results were announced, she was just passing good marks. It was her final paper, she could not prepare because she was mentally disturbed by conflicts she witnessed at her home.
Hence, she decided to run away from home. As one of her friends suggested, she ran with her when she was also facing the same problems in her home. She was Zeenat and both of them planned for this and ran away to a nearby city where they stayed in a house which was too old.
“Sania’s mom, where is Sania?” said her father with anger. “I don’t know. She said that she was going for tuition classes.” Replied Sania’s mom in worrisome.
“You have made my joke; without my permission, how could you allow her?” Said her father in greater anger.
“Let her come. I will teach a good lesson this time,” said her father Javed in hyper. When her father came to know that Sania ran away from home with one of her friends, he started finding her. Unfortunately, he found her.
He dragged her cruelly and slapped her as her mouth started bleeding. Guess what? She was killed by her own father in the name of honor confessing that she had run away with someone and she was killed in front of her mother’s eyes. She was killed in the name of honor. And police investigated and found that what the actual reality was. Zeenat revealed the words of Sania to the police that she ran just because she was getting tortured at home every day. Because of these conflicts she got mentally and physically affected.
Her father realized that he ought not to be that cruel for what he was paying. He should have entrusted in her and she could give a better result. Sania’s mother divorced him and he finally was hanged because of his deeds and misconception. Last but not least, there is no honor in honor killing.
