“We have no remorse.”
Police in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh have filed preliminary charges against two women accused of killing their daughters.
The women, who were neighbours and are both Muslim, were reportedly furious with their daughters for eloping with Hindu men, police told the BBC.
Zahida, 19, and Husna, 26, were strangled last week after they returned home to make peace with their families.
I know it’s nothing new. It’s just so depressing. They went home, to make peace with their families – and their mothers strangled them.
it makes me despair. Their mothers strangled them. For marrying Hindu men.
One of the accused is quoted by the Indian Express newspaper as saying after being arrested, “How could they elope with Hindus? They deserved to die. We have no remorse.”
Despair piled on despair.
