End honor killings

Saba's story in an Oscar-nominated documentary might make some change

Because no-one has the right to do this to any other person, please sign this Avaaz petition and hope it will bring us one step further to a righteous world:

Saba Qaiser survived an attempt on her life by her own father and uncle in a so-called 'honor killing' and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy made a documentary out of her story and thus gained important exposure to the presence of honor killings and its implications in Pakistani and other cultures. The documentary A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness is nominated for an Oscar in the Academy Awards.

Watch the trailer:
