according to Human Rights Commission of Pakistan 2012,every year 1000 women and girls are killed in Pakistan. According to Researchand Development for Human Resource for the year 2011 in 2012, 605 women and 115men were murdered in the name of karo kari. According to official datapublished by Pakistani senate in 2004, the highest number of reported karo karicases were in Punjab, then in Sindh, then in North_West Frontier Province andthen in South_western Province of Baluchistan. According to Nafeesa shah,1998,  In sindh Jacobabad is leading inhonour killings around 55 to 60 cases a month, she collected data from 1995_2004  from 1482 registered cases inwhich 16,00 plus killings accured, only 3% ended conviction because in thesecases there were no political interferenence, at most of the cases statejudiciary and human right activitist are helpless, and parliamentarian for whomthis system is survival don’t create laws against it.In islamkilling is not allowed in any way, karo kari is unislamic practice. If we goback and try to find out the root of honour killing  in India it may evolved from custom of sati.According to the custom of satti when a man died woman burn herself with herhusband.

During British rule in India Sir Charles James Napier ban thispractice and made a law of punishment. But still that custom wascontinued.  Sir Charles james napierarrived in sindh in 1848 and he banned karo kari in Sindh  as well.

 Sindhi culture is not inclined to violence against woman, They were morefocused to their land expansion, wealth. Now question is how it became a custom of sindhi culture. It is assumedthat its came from baloch tribal areas as they have intense attitude towardwoman. Because of more empowerning resources and good supply of water in Sindhbaloch people started to come to sindh, as soon as Baloch people moved to sindhcultural changes occurred. And karo kari custom penetrated in sindhi culture,and today in sindh leading honour killing occurs in Jacobabad which is highlypopulated baloch city.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Jirga play anpivoted role in the judgement of honour killing, and its like a decision makingassembly of tribe or tribal council who are most of the time uneducated anddon’t have knowledge of human rights law, which is a result of feudal socialstructure and politically influenced culture, particularly those who areinfluencial  like sardar chief of triberun jirga,who has unchallenged authority and most of the time they are themember of parliamentarian and state try its best to not to take any actionagainst them.

most of the time state support jirga system and influencialpeople violates free and transparent probe if humen right activitist raisetheir voice. Both parties agrees the decision of sardar, each party nominatesrepresentatives or advisors, the advisors have full knowledge of murders andthey disclose it in jirga , chief discuss it with advisors and then he announcethe verdict in publicly. Jirgais illegal in Pakistan, but according to Asian Human Rights Commission, 2010 “therule of tradition is often more powerful than the rule of law”. In sindh jirgasystem is less potent as compare to Balochistan and north west frontierof Pakistan,  its very common in ruralparts of Pakistan because it’s a cheaper, faster and more lkasting alternativeto settle legal cases and disputes.

althoughfamilies can decide independeblty between the four walls of a house to murder awoman driven by family customs and traditions, in rural areas jirga is the onlyjudiciary and administrative forum. Jirga hasnegative impact on society and perpetrator not only escape punishment but alsobecome a hero ih his society which encourage others to kill women(daughter,wife, sister) in the name of honour.International human right law considerkaro kari as a violence against women right.According to UN (Convention on theElimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women) CEDAW women has rightto choose partner of her life. It bound state to prevent and protect women fromgender based violence even if a family member is involve.

Honour killing in anyterm is illegal.  CEDAW’s General Recommendation Number 19defines gender-based violence as a form of discrimination against women andmakes explicit reference to “honor crimes.”According to article 4 ofCEDAW, “States should condemn violence against women and should not invokeany custom, tradition or religious consideration to avoid their obligationswith respect to its elimination” International human right law considerkaro kari as a social crime.According to UN (Convention on the Elimination ofAll Forms of Discrimination against Women) CEDAW women has right to choose partnerof her life. It bound state to prevent and protect women from gender basedviolence.

It is clearly stated in article 4 of CEDAW “states should condemnviolence against women and should not invole any custom, tradition or religiousconsiderationto avoid their obligations with respect to its elimination”
