The parents of late social media star Qandeel Baloch who was murdered by her brother on Wednesday submitted an affidavit in a Multan court, saying they have forgiven the killers and the case against their son should be taken out of custody.
Qandeel Baloch’s brother Wasim had strangled her to death in the name of “honour” at their house in 2016. He later confessed to have killed her because she “brought dishonour to the Baloch name” with her indecent videos and statements posted on social media. Her brother Aslam Shaheen was also charged in the case.
In the affidavit, submitted in a model court in Multan, Qandeel’s parents stated that they have forgiven her alleged murderers and asked the court to acquit them.
The affidavit said that the Anti-Honour Killing Laws 2015 – which prevents killers from walking free after being pardoned by the victim’s family – was passed months after Qandeel was murdered and, therefore, cannot be applied to her case.
The time when the bill was passed, the parents vowed not to pardon their son.
