LAHORE: 

The Lahore High Court on Thursday took notice of a report of a woman murdered by her husband for giving birth to six girls.

The Complaints Cell ordered the Sheikhupura district and sessions judge to probe the matter and submit his comments and a report on the steps taken by the police.

Police said Amir had argued with his wife for bearing six daughters and a son.

They said he had previously drowned a 10-day-old daughter in a bucket of water, but the wife had not reported the matter.

The LHC Complaints Cell took notice and directed the D&SJ to look into the matter and submit a report in a week.

    While the woman murdered had no right to live the murderer has all the rights to live on and our “civil society, pseudos and European Union” will safeguard his rights to live for sure

    Do these “men” not realize that the sex of a child is determined by the male and NOT the female.
    Sex of a child is determined by two chromosomes, X and Y. A female is XX, a male is XY. Since women completely lack the Y chromosome, they always contribute an X chromosome to the baby. The sex is determined by whether the sperm that fertilizes the egg is carrying another X or a Y.

    No matter what you tell people like him they will keep on doing what they want because they know they can and they will never be held accountable for it.
