Allah Warayo Bozdar
Fellow Since 1999
This description of Allah Warayo Bozdar's work was prepared when Allah Warayo Bozdar was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1999.
Allah Warayo is leading a systematic effort to end the practice of karo kari ("honor killings') in which male family members kill female family members suspected of committing adultery. In the province of Sindh alone there were more than 423 such cases reported to authorities. The practice is most prevalent in rural areas and most cases go unreported.
