NKAli | 5 years ago | Reply Why was she forced into a marriage not of her choice? Islam permits a woman to also have her say in choosing a partner. Why does Baloch tradition obviate that important point? Today in our Pakistan the government is not there and a 'free-for-all' environment prevails. All customs and traditions must be in accordance with the Ahadees if we are to go ahead as a nation and not as tribals or castes. It's very simple and easy to follow. Salams
TZ | 5 years ago | Reply The agonising truth of our intolerant society and radicalisation towards self proclaimed acts are spilling too high on the women at large. Anything that involves religious claimants their gurus or anti religious portrayal of the immoral activities, being challenged by anyone are made silent for ever, whether that goes for a philanthropist or a publicity starved individual, all have the same end, being killed by the religious rebellions or their hypnotised followers..
