“Some guys got to know that his sister was having a relationship. They would say: ‘Can’t you do anything? What is the matter with you? You are not a man.’”
“He used to tell us: ‘If you don’t stop, I will kill myself. Stop!’
“The guys here told him: ‘It would be better to kill your sister. It is better than letting her have this relationship.’”Rajhu told them he had bought a pistol, and one day in August he stopped coming to work.

“I told her I would have no face to show at the mill, to show to my neighbours, so don’t do it. Don’t do it.
“But she wouldn’t listen. I could not let it go. It was all I could think about. I had to kill her. There was no choice. There was no yelling, no shouting. I just shot her dead.”Shockingly, Tasleem's father Mohammed Naseer Rajhu also blames his daughter for her own death.
“My family is destroyed. Everything is destroyed only because of this shameful girl. Even after death I am destroyed because of her.”The family’s neighbours also agreed, heaping praise on Rajhu for killing his sister.
“I am proud of this man that he has done the right thing, to kill her. We cannot allow anyone to marry outside our religion. He did the right thing.”
