Girl Forced to Marry at Nine Murdered After She Sought Annulment

Saturday , September 06, 2008

A 17-year-old Pakistani girl forced to marry a 45-year-old when she was only nine was reportedly killed by her parents...

The murder has intensified despair among human rights workers in Pakistan over a recent spate of "honor killings," in which two women and three teenage school girls were buried alive in Baluchistan Province because they wanted to marry the men of their choice.

Saira Nusrat Bibi was successfully fighting a legal battle to have her marriage annulled. As she left court in the Punjabi city of Sahiwal, she was surrounded by a group of men reportedly sent by her parents, and shot in front of police...
Weep for Saira Nusrat Bibi and for all the other girl children trapped by the barbarism of shari'a law. Pray that the beautiful child in the video posted above doesn't meet the same end as Saira Nusrat Bibi.
