A Muslim man named Mohammad Ibqal murdered his wife so that he could then marry Farzana Parveen, a woman who in turn was recently murdered by her father and brothers, as Shoebat.com reported.
I wanted to send a proposal to Farzana, so I killed my wife
Ibqal was arrested but was then released because his son forgave him.
Iqbal, a neighbor of Parveen’s family, said he and Parveen were supposed to marry, with the family’s approval, last year. As part of the arrangement, Iqbal said, he’d given Parveen’s father 80,000 rupees and gold jewelry.
Last December, Parveen’s mother died and her father and brothers changed their minds about the marriage, Iqbal said.
The family decided Parveen, who came from a village in Punjab, should marry a cousin, police said.
Parveen, 25, and Iqbal eloped and were married January 7 in a court ceremony. He said she liked the color white and that she was a “beautiful and good wife.”
“We were happy,” he said, though they were constantly worried about their safety.
“She loved us,” said Aurengzeb, Parveen’s stepson. “She always made the most delicious meat stew for us.”
The marriage enraged her family, Iqbal said, and they demanded he pay them 100,000 rupees (about $1,000) to let the couple stay alive.
Iqbal, a farmer in the village in Jurranwala, Punjab, didn’t have the money.
The family had challenged Parveen’s marriage to Iqbal in the courts, accusing him of abducting her.
The attack took place Tuesday as she was on her way from her lawyer’s office to the high court in Lahore, where she was expected to make a declaration that she had married Iqbal of her own volition.
“They left my office around 7:40 a.m.,” the lawyer, Rai Ghulam Mustafa, said. “They arrived at the main gate of the High Court around 7:45 a.m. The opposite party, the family members of Farzana Parveen, had been lying in wait for her among the cars. They suddenly attacked her, repeatedly hit her with bricks and killed her.”
One family member made a noose of rough cloth around her neck while her brothers smashed bricks into her skull, said Mushtaq Ahmed, a police official, citing the preliminary report on the killing.
Iqbal witnessed the attack and tried to protest, but was held back.
The whole story is messed. A man murders his wife in cold blood to go with another woman, and that woman is then murdered by her own family who throw bricks at her until she died. Sickening.
