A price too far

The devastating face of militant Islam, courtesy of Pakistan’s Dawn newspaper:

Parents of 18-year-old Tasleem Solangi, who was killed in an extremely inhumane manner allegedly by some elders of her tribe, have appealed to President Asif Ali Zardari and Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah to provide them protection as the killers are still at large and have not been arrested because of their connections with police.

Tasleem’s mother told reporters at the Karachi Press Club on Monday that her daughter was first thrown before hungry dogs and when she was mauled by them and in the jaws of death, she was riddled with bullets.

The act was staged before the girl’s father who was specifically brought from a house where he had been under detention for about a year.
