That would be immoral.

They have done already this to some degree with female mutilation.

It's all about education. Apparently this bastard hasn't had enough, he should be brought up before laws similar to war crimes.

It's hard to believe someone could find this even remotely amusing/funny enough to make jokes about.

Just chalk it up as more crime in the name of God/Allah, who is cringing as we speak.

Why is it hard to believe? Humour can deal with the tragic and absurd very effectively, it can make points without being preachy, just like rape jokes.

If there is a God how can you possibly know that the entity not only cares about the death of a few women in tribal Pakistan and that it is cringing over it? Killing apostates and having open season on infidels is sanctioned by God, why assume that the entity would have a problem with the smarter, stronger and inherently more dominant sex taking charge over their women?

Appealing to God is meaningless and unjustified, even when it happens to be a position which condemns harmful behaviour.

As for Senator Zehri, his statements openly flout the Constitution he has sworn to uphold, though it's unlikely he'll ever be punished for it.

Apparently the men the three girls had come to Baba Kot to marry are missing as well, though that could just be because they fled upon hearing that the women's relatives had abducted them.
