Pakistan's Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif praised the initiative taken by Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy's Oscar nominated documentary against honour killing - 'A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness."


“Islam discourages violence against women, and there is no honour in honour killings ” said the premier at the screening of the documentary at the Prime Minister House.

The Prime Minister further added; “She (Sharmeen Obaid) has drawn our attention to the dark side of societal behaviour; something about some of us choose to remain uninformed,”

Director and producer Chinoy's documentary, A Girl in the River: The price of forgiveness, is a story of a rare survivor (a girl) who falls in love. However, she was shot and thrown in river by her father for her mistake of marrying a man of her own choice. The brave girl survives to tell the tale.


As a filmmaker, Chinoy won an Academy Award for her documentary Saving Face (2012) and two Emmy Awards for her documentaries Pakistan's Taliban Generation (2010) and Saving Face (2012).

  12. This documentary sounds incredible and I have added it on my list of things to watch. Also it is really great that the Prime Minister is taking a stand and denouncing honor killings.
