* Baloch senator Israrullah Zehri says members should not politicise issue
ISLAMABAD: The killing of women for honour is a demand of the tribal traditions, Balochistan Senator Israrullah Zehri informed the Senate on Friday.
Zehri was responding to Senator Yasmeen Shahs statement in which she had drawn the Houses attention towards reports that five women had been buried alive in Balochistan in the name of honour. She called it a sheer violation of human rights.
Zehri asked the members not to politicise the issue, as it was a matter of safeguarding the tribal traditions.
Leader of the Opposition in Senate Kamil Ali Agha condemned the killing of women in the name of honour and demanded the issue should be referred to the Human Rights Standing Committee of the House.
Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid Senator Nisar Memon drew the attention of the Senate to a research article written by Michael Chossugovsky published in Global Research of Canada. He said that the article warns how some foreign elements were planning economic, political and military disruptions to declare Pakistan a failed state.
Memon said the article stated how certain foreign powers were first planning to create chaos in the country through economic crisis followed by an unprecedented price-hike, and an eventual intervention of the International Monetary Fund in the economic affairs of the country.
The ultimate objective of all these conspiracy theories is a territorial break-up and dismemberment of the country, Memon warned.
A disintegration of the country on racial and linguistic lines would be another tool against the country, followed by a military disruption similar to that of Yugoslavia, Memon feared.
Senate Chairman Jan Muhammad Jamali said that it was a serious matter and Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani should brief the House on national security and territorial and strategic threats faced by the nation.
Leader of the House Raza Rabbani said the government would not allow anyone to harm the integrity of Pakistan. tahir niaz

I our culture, we electrocute, gas,hang or inject those who commit such atrocities.
From what I can tell, we should let Sen. Zehri be buried alive for a while, then get back to us about tribal customs.
This is a pretty clear example of why,
We shouldn’t be buying oil from Arabs.
The people in question are not Arabs.
Your post is quick to absolve Arabs.
In our culture here in America, Ancient Drive, we do not have “honor killings.”
The Pakis are muslims who are of similar ethnicity to the Indians who are mostly Hindus.
The Iranians are Persians, not Arabs.
The problem is Muslims.
I think we should immediately dispatch Pope Nancy to investigate this. Perhaps...
Islam is a crime against humanity.
Fundi Islam is spreading, precisely because we are SPENDING DOLLARS for oil.
Never mind where.
Madrasas, are being funded by petro-profits.
Which are being paid for, every single time Americans fill up at the tank.
(excuse my frustration)
Stop making excuses please.
oh they’ve happened.. it’s called domestic violence.
I'm guessing a desire for basic factual applicability of comment to the article on hand has a lot to do with it.
Also, the fact that not all Arabs are tribal islamic bastards like these animals might have something to do with it. Maybe he just doesn't like Arab Christians being slandered as such.
Sorry to break this news to you.
If we don’t stop exporting our national wealth to (muslim fundi) Arabs,
Arab Christians, are a temporary happening.
Please open your eyes.
We are funding those, who hate everything America stands for.
Ancient Drive, better check the FR keywords: honorkilling, honourkilling, honorkillings, and honourkillings. It’s a real eye opener.
What excuse did I make? I was merely trying to clarify things.
There used to be plenty of Christian Arabs but the muzzies have been trying to kill them off for centuries.
The problem is muzzies, not simply Arabs. There are plenty of nationalities who are muzzies, unfortunately.
The problem is we are spending dollars, which fund islam.
Every time we buy gas.
And rats are worried about Video game violence...
Every time we buy gas.
Thank you for recognizing your mistake, admitting it like a gentleman, and correcting it!
You do realize that the majority of our petroleum imports come from Canada, Mexico, and South America, don’t you?
