The severity of the murder has spurred Pakistan, where so-called “honour” killings are a prevalent occurrence, to address its dismal record on gender-based violence.

Pakistan is ranked 153 out of 156 nations in the World Economic Forum’s global gender ranking, barely above its neighbouring country Afghanistan, which has been devastated by the Taliban.

Who was Sara Shahnawaz?

She was brilliant economist & working with an international firm. She was a Canadian national. Her parents settle in Dallas, USA. Two brothers were settled in Canada.

Case

Shahnawaz killed Sara Bibi, Ayaz Amir’s daughter-in-law, in the Chak Shehzad neighbourhood of Islamabad.

Murder weapon

The 37-year-old Sara was discovered dead this morning at a farmhouse in Islamabad where she resided. Her 37-year-old husband is the main suspect in the crime, according to the police, who claim that she was murdered with a dumbbell.

Shahnawaz Amir Arrested

As soon as police and investigation teams arrived on the scene, the famous journalist’s son was taken into custody.

Ayaz Amir’s Stance

In his most recent interview, the journalist expressed his sorrow and told the media that the incident is still shocking him. He added that he hoped no one would ever experience this. When asked if he was aware that his kid used drugs, the journalist sidestepped the inquiry.

Rising violence against women

According to the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap 2021 index, Pakistan was placed 153rd out of 156 nations in 2021 by the Thomas Reuters Foundation poll.

Just the last two years, 2020 and 2021, saw an increase in accusations of domestic and online abuse, according to the Human Rights Commission Pakistan (HRCP).

In 2020, there were 430 cases of honour killings reported to the HRCP, with 263 female victims. Between the ages of 15 and 29, over 28% of women had been physically harmed.

2,297 incidences of violence against women were reported in four provinces in 2021, according to the Aurat Foundation, a women’s rights organisation based in Islamabad, Pakistan. These violent incidents included interpersonal violence, rape, gang rape, rape and kidnapping, murder, and honour killings.
