Chalk another one up for that tried-and-true combination of religious fundamentalism and unchecked male aggression. Five Pakistani women, three of them teenagers, were shot and buried alive in rural Pakistan over the unspeakable horror of wanting to choose their own husbands. Naturally, it was relatives that kidnapped and killed them, but when they were arrested, the local Congress-imam said he’d be happy to defend them as shining examples of centuries of religious tradition.
Old story, new level of revulsion. Honor your sisters, gentlemen, with a moment of silence, then find someplace to speak up over it.
