As you can see in the video below Saba Maqsood shot twice and thrown into canal by her own father and uncle after refusing to marry a relative in arrange marriage.
She ran away from her abusive family members and secretly married her fiance against the will of the family.
The day after she married her fiance Qaiser, her father and uncle took her from her in-laws' home - after swearing on the Koran that no harm would come to her - shot at her and dumped her body in a canal in a sack.
This horrific case of honor killing raises awareness of the brutal violation of women's rights in Pakistan where honor killings are considered a social norm.
Just recently Pakistan has been elected to be a member of the UN Human Rights Council.
Honour killings in Pakistan are known locally as karo-kari. Pakistan has the highest number of documented and estimated honour killings per capita of any country in the world; about one-fifth of the world's honour killings are performed in Pakistan (1000 out of the 5000 per year total).
According to Islamic tradition, the "honor" of the entire family is measured by women's behavior. Any action that may be perceived as harming the family's honor may cost the woman her life. In other words, a woman is required not only to obey Islam including its strict codes of modesty but also to completely obey her male (guardians husband, father, brother and even uncle).
