Heart rending indeed such killings of otherwise healthy , hale human beings while in hospital we strive to keep even 90 year olds alive and going as much as possible. As Narendra Modi said, it is not mind but mindset that prompts, permits such outrage needs to change. May the souls of deceased rest in peace.

Couple beheaded in public over love marriage
A couple was beheaded in cold blood by the family of the girl over love marriage in Satrah village of Daska tehsil the other day.
According to the FIR lodged with Satrah police station, Sajjad Ahmed, 27, of village Hasanabad, Sialkot, had contracted a love marriage with Muafia Bibi, 23, of Satrah on June 18.
On Friday, seven members of Muafia’s family, including her father Dilshad alias Kulla, uncle Ghulam Husain, Shamshad, Afzaal Husain and Bashiran Bibi, stormed into house of the newly-weds in Hasanabad, bundled them into a van and took them to an outhouse at Satrah.
The suspects tied up the legs and arms of Sajjad and Muafia and cut off their heads with choppers in public but nobody dared stop them, the FIR said. The suspects fled from the village after the incident.
Sajjad’s family said the couple had come into contact several months ago and wanted to get married but Muafia’s parents didn’t agree to her marriage with Sajjad which led to their love marriage. They said the couple was issued threats by the girl’s family.
Police handed over the bodies to Sajjad’s family after autopsy at Daska Civil Hospital. They were laid to rest amid police security. Police claim that they have arrested the accused.
