    These people really are dumber than animals..

    Not even a dog would do this to their offspring:

    A Pakistani couple accused of killing their 15-year-old daughter by pouring acid on her carried out the attack because she sullied the family's honour by looking at a boy, the couple said in an interview broadcast Monday by the BBC.

    The girl's death underlines the problem of so-called "honour killings" in Pakistan where women are often killed for marrying or having relationships not approved by their families or because they are perceived to have somehow dishonoured their family.

    The girl's parents, Mohammad Zafar and his wife Zaheen, recounted the Oct. 29 incident from jail. The father said the girl had turned to look at a boy who drove by on a motorcycle, and he told her it was wrong.

    "She said 'I didn't do it on purpose. I won't look again.' By then I had already thrown the acid. It was her destiny to die this way," the girl's mother told the British broadcaster.

    Television footage of the couple showed them standing behind bars in separate, but adjoining jail cells.

    The father said the family had already come under public censure because of their older daughter's behaviour, but he did not detail what exactly he meant.

    Pakistani officials initially said the attack occurred because the girl supposedly had an affair with a boy.

    According to the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, at least 943 women were killed in the name of honour last year. Only 20 of the women were reported to have been given medical care before they died, the report said. The real toll is believed to be higher because many of the crimes go unreported.

    "Throughout the year, women were callously killed in the name of honour when they went against family wishes in any way, or even on the basis of suspicion that they did so. Women were sometimes killed in the name

    ****ed up. My favorite part was, "it was her destiny to die." Holy Christ, are there that many people whose IQ falls below 100?

    I'm not going to bash on religion, but intelligence doesn't have anything to do with this. The culture they live in encourages this behaviour. I wonder, though, the parents are in jail, so it's not like they got a ****ing medal.

    Meanwhile we have over 1% of our population in Prison and the highest gun related murder rate in the world. Are we dumber than animals?

    I'm gonna hold of negging you, Beantown, until you say something else as stupid as an entire country of people are dumber than animals. You realize very few people who live in Pakistan decided to live there, right?

    FWIW, "these people" could've just referred to the couple.

    Not to distract from the sensless violence, and the young life ended for no reason, but I want to ask---Who keeps buckets of acid sitting around? This is not the first story of girls being killed or injured by acid, so I want to know does every family over there have a bucket of acid ? Where do they get this acid and how do they store it? Is it sold for the purpose of injuring or killing or does it have another purpose.

    Do the parents tell the kids 'if you don't eat all your vegetables, we'll through acid on you', like we threaten our kids with timeouts?
