In May 2016, Khadija Siddiqi was stabbed over two dozen times on a busy Lahore Street as she collected her six-year-old sister Sofia Siddiqui from school.
She was attacked by her class fellow Shah Hussain who didn’t like the fact that Khadija Siddiqi refused to acknowledge his moves and stopped talking. Later she was blackmailed and threatened by the perpetrator but she ignored it thinking it would soon pass.
Little did she know that he driven by so-called honor and revenge, slashed her multiple times in an attempt to kill her, another stab was also given to her younger sister when she yelled in pain trying to save her elder sister from repeated being stabbed.
