Watch: A Pakistani woman killed for marrying against her families wishes was five months pregnant.
Farzana Bibi was stoned to death by relatives, including her father, outside a court in the city of Lahore in what appeared to be an ''honour'' killing.
Pakistan which was elected by the UN to be a member of the UN Human Rights Council and UN Economic and Social Council, is known for its brutal violation of women's rights, children's rights and minority rights.
Honour killings in Pakistan are known locally as karo-kari. Pakistan has the highest number of documented and estimated honour killings per capita of any country in the world; about one-fifth of the world's honour killings are performed in Pakistan (1000 out of the 5000 per year total).
According to Islamic tradition, the "honor" of the entire family is measured by women's behavior. Any action that may be perceived as harming the family's honor may cost the woman her life. In other words, a woman is required not only to obey Islam including its strict codes of modesty but also to completely obey her male (guardians husband, father, brother and even uncle).
