Smiling sisters shot dead for dancing in the rain: Pakistani girls, 15 and 16, killed along with their mother for making video which ‘stained the family honour’   
Noor Basra and Noor Sheza were playing outside their home in Chilas
The clip was circulated via mobile phones but caused outrage in the town
The sisters were shot dead last Sunday alongside their mother 
It is alleged the girls’ step-brother planned the attack with four accomplices to restore the family’s honour 
Two teenage sisters have been murdered in Pakistan after they were accused of tarnishing their family’s name by making a video of themselves dancing in the rain. 
The girls, aged 15 and 16, are seen running around in traditional dress with two other younger children outside their bungalow in the town of Chilas, in the northern region of Gilgit. 
The sisters, named as Noor Basra and Noor Sheza, appear to break into dance and one even flashes a smile at the camera.
However, when the footage was circulated via mobile phones, it caused outrage in the conservative Pakistani town. 
Last Sunday the girls were shot alongside their mother in their home by five gunmen.
Police are investigating whether the attack was arranged by the girls’ step-brother, named as Khutore, who allegedly wanted to ‘restore the family’s honour’ according to The Sunday Times. 
The sisters’ other brother has filed a case against Khutore and the four other alleged accomplices who are now believed to be on the run. 
Last year four women are believed to have been killed by tribal elders for dancing and singing with men at a wedding party in the remote north-western village of Kohistan in Pakistan.
A tribal council of clerics – known as a Jirga – reportedly condemned the women to death for ‘fornication’ and staining their families’ names.
Their actions were said to have brought shame on the community, which frowns on men and women dancing together or fraternising at all.
The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan said at least 943 women and girls were murdered in 2011 for allegedly defaming their family’s honour. 
According to women’s rights group, the Aurat Foundation, about 1,000 ‘honour’ killings take place in Pakistan every year. 
The statistics highlight the scale of violence suffered by many women in conservative Muslim Pakistan, where they are frequently treated as second-class citizens.


Pakistan should send a clear message by putting whoever is responsible for this atrocity to death.  But that’s just my opinion. Astaghfirullah, who could do such a thing… ):
