ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — It was just a few seconds, a video clip of several young women laughing and clapping to music, dressed for a party or a wedding in orange headscarves and robes with floral patterns. Then a few more seconds of a young man dancing alone, apparently in the same room.

The cellphone video was made six years ago, in a village deep in Kohistan, a rugged area of northwest Pakistan. It was the last time the young women, known only as Bazeegha, Sareen Jan, Begum Jan, Amina and Shaheen, have ever been definitively seen alive.

What happened to them remains a mystery. Their fates have been shrouded by cultural taboos, official inertia, implacable resistance from local elders and religious leaders suspected of ordering their deaths, and elaborate subterfuges by the families who reportedly carried out those orders.

[Killed in the name of ‘honor’ in Pakistan]

Even in Pakistan, where hundreds of “honor killings” are reported every year, the details of this case are extreme. According to court filings and interviews with people who have investigated the case, the families confined the disgraced girls for weeks, threw boiling water and hot coals on them, then killed them and buried them somewhere in the Kohistan hills.

It's interesting how intolerant some religions,political parties, or cultures can be.

Domestic violence and abuse doesn't even need an ideology though. In some countries the culture may provide the abuser with one of a plethora of excuses, but the root cause is all the same no matter where you go all over the world.

Here in the USA we prefer our women are killed shopping or working at (insert random store) or by good old fashioned spousal abusers that don't need Islam as an excuse. 'Merka!
