Iftikhar Ahmed, 52, and wife Farzana, 49, of Warrington, Cheshire, suffocated the 17-year-old with a plastic bag.
Judge: 'Shafilea was squeezed between two cultures - the culture she wanted to embrace and the one you wanted to impose on her'.
'You were unrealistic, destructive and cruel' and 'tried to impose your cultural values by intimidation, bullying and a use of physical violence'.
Mr Ahmed earlier told police in court to 'f*** off' as he was led to the cells.
Leading criminologist says Shafilea may still be alive were it not for a 'catastrophic failure by state agencies to communicate effectively'.
For nearly a decade, they kept up the sham that they were grieving parents whose beautiful daughter had been kidnapped.
In reality, Farzana and Iftikhar Ahmed were killers who murdered 17-year-old Shafilea because she simply wouldn't conform to the values of 'rural Pakistan' and then terrorised the rest of their family into a sickening nine-year cover-up.
Last night, as the pair were jailed for life, social services were accused of missing several key warning signs in the run-up to Shafilea's death.
Indeed, the killers were exposed only after Shafilea's younger sister plucked up the courage to tell how she and her siblings watched them suffocate her in 2003.
Mr Justice Roderick Evans said 'Westernised' Shafilea simply wanted a normal life but found herself 'squeezed between two cultures'.

Hypocrisy of killer parents: Shafilea Ahmed's mother and father who kept up a facade of grief for nearly a decade are jailed for 25 years for murdering their daughter
I just can’t find words
“Squeezed between two cultures” ?
I don’t think so! Squeezed between civilization and barbarism!
How about ...
GET OUT OF ENGLAND
ISLAM IS ILLEGAL
I can think of a TON of words that effectively communicate.
Islam: an insane murder cult since Mad Mo crawled out of the bat cave and barked at the moon.
Ask yourself, why is it that Michelle Bachmann and a few others responding to a report that hilldabeasts sidekick wiener may have ties to the muslim brotherhood and the infultration of our government by radical muslim groups has come under fire by our very own elected ofiicials like Mclame and others. They have support from wthin. This is an intolerant murderous cult who kill thier own children. The gay community battles the christians over gay marriage and the muslims sit quietly, funny
I dont think so! Squeezed between civilization and barbarism!
Exactly. Thank you.
I cannot imagine the horror of the siblings of the murdered girl who had to witness this barbaric act.
Mr and Mrs Ahmed are first cousins and Sunni Muslims who grew up living next door to each other....
Inbred savages following a death cult.
There, fixed it.
“Life” imprisonment in England translates into what? 12-18 months served?
And lucky for these two that they have other children they can kill once they get released.
They both got 25 years.
