When the onus of propriety is put on just one group and the dominant one simply washes its hands off any need for correction, then there is really very little headway that you can make! Here is an example of a person who believes his religion obviates the women from taking charge or going out.. and so he felt it right to kill this lady Pakistani Minister. Worse, this was his FIFTH killing and he has injured a dozen girls and still acquitted! Makes you wonder sometimes!
Punjab Minister for Social Welfare Zille Huma Usman was shot dead by a man described by police as a religious fanatic when she was going to address an open court here on Tuesday.
Police arrested the accused, Maulvi Mohammad Sarwer Mughal, and seized a pistol he was carrying. The accused had been charged with killing four model girls and injuring a dozen others some four years ago, and he was acquitted by a local court for lack of evidence.
Witnesses said the 36-year-old minister, mother of two minor boys, was being showered with rose petals by workers of her party at the Muslim League House on the Asgher Ali Road when the accused fired on her.
She was taken to the District Headquarters Hospital with critical head injuries. Later, she was shifted to the General Hospital in Lahore by a helicopter where she died soon due to excessive bleeding. PML workers and the minister’s guards overpowered the accused and handed him over to the Civil Lines police.
