Madonna expressed her grief over Baloch’s untimely death but was glad to see the positive change her sacrifices brought to society.
"The Pakistan government finally just passed the #antihonorkilling bill, closing the loophole that allows killers to walk free! So good to see positive change happen in the world. Too bad Qandeel and so many others had to die first," she added.
