Acid dousing in Pakistan

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-17676542

quote:
Her name is Shama, meaning "candle", and she says her husband burnt her flesh as if it was a candlewick.

The young mother of four has just joined the ranks of Pakistani women doused in acid. She is scarred for life, with burns on 15% of her body. Her crime was her beauty.

"My husband and I often had arguments in the house," she said, in her hospital bed. "On that day before going to sleep he said 'you take too much pride in your beauty'. Then in the middle of the night he threw acid on me, and ran away."

When her husband fled, he took her mobile phone with him, so she could not call for help.


quote:
"All the colours have gone from my life. I feel like I'm a living corpse, even worse than a living corpse. I think I have no right to live."

Shama now lies in Ward 10a of the burns unit in Nishtar Hospital in Multan in Pakistan's Punjab province.

It is a monument to neglect. The plaster is peeling off the walls and there is a leaking pipe hanging from the ceiling. When patients need transfusions, their relatives are despatched to buy pints of blood.

But the doctors here are expert at treating women disfigured by acid - they see one or two new victims every week.


I've not heard of this before now. Crazy, heartbreaking stuff. I don't think this is just a matter of "ugh, Muslims" though, since Hindus in Northern India are just as bad with their dowry murders.

I think it's just a northern subcontinental thing.

Happens a lot in Africa as well. most high profile case in the UK is of Katie Piper who was a total babe and even after the acid attack would still get a 4 finger vigorous poke from me

Misogyny...and revenge. And barbarism. And jealousy.

I think there was something in the news recently about a girl who survived an acid attack a while back, but decided to kill herself now after years of surgeries and treatments didn't work.

We need to bring Democracy to these heathen ass countries in the middle east. A McDonalds on every corner will deal with these barbaric acts.

He is later attacked by a pack of Velociraptors, but survives by wedging himself into a pipe. He manages to kill a few of them (one with a rocket launcher), and eventually escapes the island with the other survivors. He killed at least two raptors and the adult tyrannosaur during the course of the story."

The sad thing is that this kind of thing happens in democratic India as well.

And yes, for all its faults India is probably the most democratic Asian country with the exception of the far east (Japan, South Korea, etc)

I think you're underestimating the tremendous impact Chicken McNuggets have on spreading peace and civility.

Edit: Is cheese okay for Hindu's to eat? I guess if it's water buffalo cheese...

Was this in Pakistan or somewhere in the West?

I think Bangladesh introduced death penalty for acid attacks, but I can't be sure.

What does this have to do with the topic?
