Project description

Honor Killing is considered as a routine tradition. But there is very clear difference between the Data of govenment organizations i.e. police and other relvent departments and the data of different NGOs and human rights organizations. The police deparments are manipulating the data and never register the FIR as honor Killing but name it as murder. My data was based on the secondary source and proved that the government organization are trying to hide the cases.
This story was assigned and supervised by Pakistan Press Foundation (PPF) and declared as the best story of the year. It has a very good impact on the human rights of Pakistan and awekening (female human rights) also awarded me an appreciation certificates. Despites the fact it was against the police department, I was got positive gestures from police invetigation section.
