Pakistan: Daughter talking to a boy? Kill her with acid!

November 3, 2012

A mother and father in Pakistan-administered Kashmir killed their 15-year-old daughter by dousing her with acid after seeing her talking to a young man, police said on Thursday.

Local police officer Tahir Ayub told AFP the father, Mohammad Zafar, had had suspicions about his daughter Anvu Sha and became enraged when he saw her with a boy outside their home on Monday.

“Zafar beat her up and then poured acid over her with the help of his wife. She was badly burnt but they did not take her to hospital until the next morning, and she died on Wednesday,” Ayub said.

How much foreign aid are we giving these people again?

    “Us westerners” are no more of a single voting block or a single set of opinions than “you easterners” are. There are growing numbers of people in the west who regard the Islamic domination of Pakistan and its resulting laws and customs as a shameful disgrace, and are doing what we can to put a stop to it. But as the debacles in Iraq and Afghanistan have demonstrated, reason and logic can’t be imposed on a society from outside. Ultimately it will have to be the Pakistanis who decide what kind of future they want.

    @ Carole, This is the same Pakistan that your leaders have courted for decades, the most favoured non-NATO ally ……… you westerners are complicit in what is wrong with Pakistan ……

  3. I would slightly prefer death by acid to being raped by a crusty old Muslim and bearing his children.

    Thank goodness she died. Better than having to come to terms with the fact that your mother and father tried to kill you because of their fear and ignorance.
