Afzal Kohistani left, but his fight against Kohistan's "choar" custom must go on

He feared for his life, he wrote to authorities many times that he is receiving life threats and will meet the same fate as his brothers. He was the whistleblower of infamous Kohistan honour killing scandal. Back in 2012, five women were killed in the name of honour in Kohistan because they appeared in a grainy cellphone video, clapping and enjoying, at a wedding while a man danced. In the video, the women can be seen only clapping while their heads still covered in dupatta. But they paid a heavy price for it. Afzal Kohistani became the whistleblower of this case, exposed it in front of the world and lead a heroic fight against Kohistan's choar custom. Choar system is a form of honour killings peculiar to the area. Under this system, any man or woman who interacts with the opposite sex becomes liable to death.
