A prominent Pakistani Facebook personality, Qandeel Baloch, has been brutally murdered by her own brother, in an ‘honour killing’. She was 26. To be an independent woman in an Islamic place is to invite your own close relatives to kill you.
Not only was Qandeel killed by her own brother, her parents, who were present, did nothing to stop him. They have been arrested.
Horrifying as Qandeel’s killing is, such murders are commonplace in the failed state of Pakistan. And why is Pakistan a failed state? Because Islam.
Nobody should be under any illusions now: we are at war already.
