Islamabad : The brother of model Qandeel Baloch — whose titillating social media posts led to her honour killing, on Sunday said he was ‘not embarrassed’ for having killed his sister. Waseem said he gave a “tablet” to Baloch to subdue her and then strangled her in their family home over the weekend. “I have no regrets,” he told journalists in a press conference arranged by the police early on Sunday.
The strangling has sent shockwaves across Pakistan and ignited a debate on the ‘epidemic’ of honour killing. It also triggered an outpouring of grief on social media for Baloch who is believed to be in her twenties and whose real name was Fauzia Azeem. She rose to fame for her Facebook posts that saw her praised by some for breaking social taboos but condemned by conservatives.
