Popular Pakistan Singer Executed; Obama's 'Peace Partners' Suspected

From FNC:

Popular Pakistani singer Ghazala Javed and her father were reportedly shot to death as they left a beauty parlor in northwest Pakistan.

The Times of India reports that unidentified men fired indiscriminately at Javed and her father, Mohammad Javed, as they left the beauty parlor on Monday in Dagbari Bazar, the singer’s relatives told police. [...]

Several singers and musicians in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province have been gunned down in recent years by the local Taliban, who have declared music "un-Islamic,” the newspaper reports. Several musicians have fled northwest Pakistan after receiving threats from the militants.

Ah, the religion of peace, mercy and compassion.
