Pakistani honor killings frequently make the news, but this chilling interview with parents accused of murdering their daughter, Anusha, for turning to look at a boy has struck a nerve around the world.
Watch as the mother, worried the 15-year-old would bring disgrace to the family, admits throwing acid over her, saying, “It was her destiny to die this way.”
Anusha didn’t die immediately, but suffered for hours without medical treatment with 60 percent of her body burned. As the couple awaits sentencing in side-by-side prison cells, Twitter continues to be flooded with outraged comments ranging from “Genuinely have no words” to “Absolutely Shocked!!” — but all legitimately horrified.
OMG, I’M SO SHOCKED THAT I CAN’T WATCH THE VIDEO…IS THIS REALLY NECESSARY? HOW CAN A FAMILY BE SHAMED THAT A DAUGHTER LOOKED AT A BOY BUT NOT ASHAMED OF KILLING THEIR OWN CHILD??
