Muqaddas Bibi, 22, was murdered by her family on Tuesday in Buttaranwali village because she had married for love instead of accepting a marriage arranged by her family. Bibi was seven months pregnant with her second child at the time of her murder. Last week, a sixteen-year-old girl who married for love was killed by her family and a young married couple in Lahore were killed by their families.

Pakistan’s Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has vowed to stop these honor killings, but Pakistan is still waiting for legislation. To learn more about honor killings in Pakistan, click here
