The Timesonline(UK) reports the death of Zilla Huma Usman, 35, of Parkistan. murdered for not wearing a veil:

Zilla Huma UsmanA Pakistani minister and woman’s activist has been shot dead by an Islamic extremist for refusing to wear the veil.

Zilla Huma Usman, the minister for social welfare in Punjab province and an ally of President Pervez Musharraf, was killed as she was about to deliver a speech to dozens of party activists, by a “fanatic”, who believed that she was dressed inappropriately and that women should not be involved in politics, officials said.

No apparent coment from the National Organization for Women.   NOW, won’t say it, but I will. Killing anybody for violation of an dress code, no matter what the source, is barbaric.
