    Arrest him and execute him for murder. There is no such thing as “honour killing” in Islam. This has been copied from an alien Eastern culture that disrespects women and today women in that alien Eastern society are in danger of sexual assaults, shot for not serving dinner on time, etc. Pakistan must purge quickly and once-and-for-all remnants of an alien culture that continues to haunt it despite 70 years having passed by.
