A modern-day tale of Romeo and Juliet

It is a story as old as time but, unlike Romeo and Juliet, a couple arrested in Yemen have sparked a major Facebook campaign. Once upon a time, three years ago, Huda, now 22, walked into a mobile phone shop in her home village in Saudi Arabia. She met Arafat, now 25, a Yemeni migrant worker from a much poorer family. Love blossomed. Arafat approached Huda's parents to ask for her hand, but was refused, according to the couple's lawyer. Huda then left home and crossed the border into Yemen disguised as a Yemeni worker. So far, so familiar. This time, there has been a huge reaction on Yemeni Facebook, with several pages and images of the couple being widely shared (one has 9,000 likes).

"The sympathy with Huda is because she rebelled against her culture," says Fahad, a 33-year-old civil servant who is on Facebook every evening. Reporting by Mukul Devichand.

Parveen Bibi confessed before a special court in the city of Lahore to killing her daughter in June for what she said was “bringing shame to the family”. Police said 18-year-old Zeenat Rafiq married Hassan Khan and eloped to live with his family a week before she was killed. The court sentenced Rafiq’s brother Anees to life in prison after the evidence showed her mother and brother had first beaten her, before her mother threw kerosene on her and set her on fire.

After Rafiq’s murder in a poor district of Lahore, none of her relatives sought to claim her body, police said, leaving her husband’s family to bury her charred remains after dark in a graveyard near the city. Violence against women is rampant in Pakistan, according to the independent Human Rights Commission of Pakistan. Romeo & Juliet - The party kiss - Act I Scene V.
