BBC reported that according to a survey conducted by Aurat Foundation in the last 6 months 225 women were murdered in different cities after decreeing them KARO KARI (woman who has been proved to have illicit relations). According to survey the tradition of honour killing is given different names in different parts of the country but the tradition's basic rule is the same everywhere (women are killed by just putting this heinous allegation). Survey report of Aurat Foundation also reveals that in last 6 months, 722 women were killed for other domestic reasons beside honour killings.
