Dear reader, please upgrade to the latest version of IE to have a better reading experience. A year-old school teacher from Murree, who was tortured and set on Murree girls after refusing a marriage proposal, succumbed to her injuries in Islamabad's Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences Pims on Wednesday. The girl was brought to the hospital yesterday and breathed her last at around Girl tortured, set on fire for refusing marriage proposal.
The body of the girl has been handed over to her heirs and shifted to Murree girls Headquarters Hospital Murree.
Police has registered a case, but no arrests have been made as of yet. It was reported Murree girls Tuesday that a group of five men had forcibly entered the victim's house, locked her in a room and beat her up over a marriage dispute. The victim's uncle, Nasir Abbassi, had stated the family had gone to a social gathering and the girl Murree girls alone at home when the incident occurred.
The suspects, after beating the victim, set Murree girls on fire and threw her in a ditch behind her residence. The family, after being informed by a local boy, rushed home and took the girl out of the ditch and took her to a local hospital.

Earlier in May, a year-old girl was strangled and set on fire in Galyat's Makol village after orders given by a local jirga.
Abbottabad police had said a member jirga called by the Makol village councillor Pervez Murree girls for the deceased to be killed and set on fire as punishment for helping her friend escape the village to marry of her free will. The girl was taken from her home to an abandoned house where she was drugged, killed, and placed in the back seat of a parked van. The van was then doused with Murree girls and set on fire.
Social issues like these are never addressed by religious parties. We can debate and discuss about beating women but when it comes to actual issues of rape, acid attack and child rape, the silence from religious parties are unacceptable. Murree girls burned to death for refusing marriage proposal? Where is the Council for Islamic Ideology? What is their position on this gruesome murder?
It is high time for Mariam Nawaz to come out of comfort hibernation and do some thing for Pakistani women masses, of course if she really believes in their plight. Our people going to our Murree girls for liver and other treatment. Our PM going abroad for treatment not a single hospital to take care of him.
This country will never progress until monsters like this are made to pay! May she rest in peace!
And I cant even begin to think how her parents will suffer for the rest of their lives with the thought of their innocent girl burning to death.! The perpetrators are becoming more daring and ruthless day by day. They need to be caught and punished for their heinous crimes. Why don't we ever read about these criminals Murree girls sentenced and punished?
Waiting to see light at the end of this long dark tunnel People are quick to take action against religious groups but not condemn attack based on cultural Murree girls norms. Based on the comments in Dawn Pakistan is still under identity crisis, and they are unable to acknowledge if their core values should be religious or on tribal culture. Gender equality is a must for any country Murree girls be viewed as a modern nation. You cannot have organizations like CII recommending "light beating" of women and gender equality at the same time.
Speedy conviction are the only thing which can have impact but in Pakistan it would normally go at least years before the culprits get punished. We are living in a barbarian culture.
Where are those mullahas, JI chief and the protectors of Islam and humanity now?
Why don't they say anything about this issue. Though horrible and terrifying, I am still trying to be optimistic that the girl will now rest in peace.
This guy who would have made her life a hell fire every day and night if she would have married him. She was indeed a brave girl. I am really surprising actually who rules Pakistan Is it the result of madrasa education???
At least the poor girl stood for Murree girls rights and her family backed her. Wish we could do more than just feel sorry and count the victims. This problem exists in Indian subcontinent The population must rise up against this and mobilise, and Murree girls back down until concrete action is taken and proper laws put in place and enforced.
This is a call for men and women to band together and stand up for true justice - social media can definitely help in this regard. What a shame and when you read at yahoo such news coming out of Murree girls.
What peoples around the world think about us? Women deserve a respect. It should never happen Where are our leaders and why so silence Please respect women and protect them from these evils. She was always and is still busy embezzling public money to keep it in Murree girls shore companies.
Are you seriously expecting some good out of her?
