Pakistani mother murders daughter with acid

It was for simply looking at a boy:
Police in Pakistan-administered Kashmir arrested Mohammad Zafar and his wife Zaheen for the October 29 attack on their daughter Anusha, 15, who died in hospital two days later after suffering horrific acid burns.

So-called "honour" attacks are common in deeply conservative Pakistan. Rights activists say more than 900 women were murdered last year after being accused of bringing shame on the family in some way.

Speaking from their police cells, the father told the BBC they had warned Anusha before about looking at boys, while the mother described how her daughter had begged for forgiveness.

"She said, 'I didn't do it on purpose, I won't do it again," the mother, whose own arm bore an injury from the acid, told the BBC.

"By then I had thrown the acid. It was her destiny to die this way."

The parents waited two days to take Anusha to hospital. A doctor told AFP the teenager arrived in a "very critical condition" with almost 70 per cent burns.
There can be no doubt, they were waiting on purpose, knowing she was likely to die simply by not getting immediate medical attention. This is another example of what I'd describe as an unfeminine mother.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I do not know if I'll ever be as good as him, but I do my best.
