What happens when women don't know their place ...

...they get shot:

A Pakistani minister and woman’s activist has been shot dead by an Islamic extremist for refusing to wear the veil.

Zilla Huma Usman, the minister for social welfare in Punjab province and an ally of President Pervez Musharraf, was killed as she was about to deliver a speech to dozens of party activists, by a “fanatic”, who believed that she was dressed inappropriately and that women should not be involved in politics, officials said.

I expect someone can justify it prizes for guessing who will probably defend the reactionary religious tosser who murdered a woman for daring to stand up for women's rights .
