Pakistani model Qandeel Baloch was murdered by her brother, Waseem Azeem, in what he has since confessed to as an honor killing.
Baloch's murder is one of thousands of honor killings committed each year. "Also, her issue with the clergyman had increased our troubles".
On her final, July 4 post to her Facebook page, which has nearly 800,000 fans, she wrote: "I am trying to change the typical orthodox mindset of people who don't wanna come out of their shells of false beliefs and old practices".
"I am a drug addict but I was in my senses when I murdered her and I accept it with pride". "She was on the ground floor while our parents were asleep on the roof floor". Girls are born only to stay at home and to bring honor to the family by following family traditions but Qandeel had never done that. My friends used to send me videos and pictures on my mobile. She was planning to go overseas after Eidul Fitr.
I need not to choose what type of women should be.
Pakistani relatives and residents carry the coffin of Ms Baloch during her funeral in Shah Sadar Din village.
Regional police chief Sultan Taimuri said authorities will seek the maximum punishment for Azeem, without providing further details. As a result, the police provided them with security during the funeral.
Meanwhile, Qandeel, whose real name was Fouzia Azeem, was laid to rest on July 17 at her ancestral village, near Dera Ghazi Khan in the Punjab province.
According to the post-mortem report conducted by a panel of three doctors at Nishtar Hospital in Multan, she was murdered between 9 and 10 pm Friday.
The actor-cum-model was strangled to death in her house in Multan's Karimabad area in the early hours on Saturday.
Qavi, who was suspended from a prominent Muslim council in the controversy following the posts, told local media after Baloch's death he had "forgiven her" and the matter was now in God's hands.
But many conservatives pushed back, with some echoing Wasim's statement by arguing that her family would have had "no choice". Madiha Tahir, co-founder of the feminist magazine Tanqeed, called her a "gutsy feminist provocateur" who had exposed "the hypocrisy of the male-dominated establishment, especially the clergy, through her social media videos". Qandeel, who has been described as Pakistan's Kim Kardashian, had over 750,000 followers on Facebook, and offered a type of female representation that her country hadn't really seen before. He added, "I am not ashamed".
