The woman Senator from Sindh, Yasmeen Shah said in the Senate Committee on Human Rights that her fellow Senator Mir Israrullah Zehri had warned her that a death squad comprising 12 tribesmen had been dispatched to assassinate her for raising the issue of burial of five women in Balochistan. Senator Zehri had justified the killing of women in the name of honour and tribal customs when this issue was raised in the Senate on Aug 29 by Yasmeen Shah. Zehri had warned his fellow senators in clear words to refrain from making any comments on the issue of burial of live women in the name of tribal tradition. Yasmeen Shah made this shocking disclosure during the proceedings of the Senate Committee on Human Rights being presided over by SM Zafar.
