Nearly 1,000 Pakistani women ‘killed for honor’ annually

• .
At least 943 Pakistani women and girls were murdered last year for allegedly defaming their family’s honor, the country’s leading human rights group said Thursday.

The statistics highlight the growing scale of violence suffered by many women in conservative Muslim Pakistan, where they are frequently treated as second-class citizens and there is no law against domestic violence.

No, sorry, they are NOT treated as "second-class citizens ."

We treat our dogs and cats and farm animals better than these "people" treat their women.
