Qandeel was a Pakistani woman who was killed by her own brother. It’s just one name we know, but these things happen a lot there. Baloch became a social media celebrity, because that was the only way she could express herself in a country where it’s unacceptable that a woman is coming up for herself, speaking out and is a public figure (I sometimes wonder how Benazir Bhutto became so successful, but when you see how that ended, you can see it doesn’t last forever in countries like that).
Baloch was killed by his own brother because she was wearing things she “shouldn’t wear”, meaning she wasn’t wearing a niqab. Beside that, she exposed a mufti called Abdul Qavi, who was on a tv show with her, saying she needs to be a better muslim. When the tv show was a success, they met each other because Abdul Qavi saw some possibilities. They became “friends” and Baloch exposed him by putting selfies and videos on Facebook where you can see Qavi was not the same person who was on that tv show, saying bad things about her. They even shared cigarettes and so on.
As you can understand, the followers of this so called mufti didn’t like it and they started to attack her. It was her brother, though, who killed her while she was sleeping.

In Turkish, we have a saying, called: Şeyh uçmaz, mürit uçurur. The English meaning is this:
It is not that the holy man flies; it is his disciples who imagine him fly
