Helping Pakistan's Acid Attack Victims

Scores of women in Pakistan are severely disfigured by acid attacks every year.Pakistan's Acid Survivors Foundation recorded 48 cases last year and countless others are likely to have gone unreported.Al Jazeera's Alan Fisher reports from Lahore on how one woman is helping the victims to rebuild their lives.

  2. @ Vernz These women are attack due to marital infidelity, refusing to submit to an arranged marriage, demanding a divorce, flirting with or receiving phone calls from men, failing to serve a meal on time or “allowing herself” to be raped, refusing to give more dowry.

  3. Is this how they treated women, like a second class citizen or slave? I read and saw on the news the many abuses that OFW women suffered in Muslim countries where they worked.

  4. Why are these people behaving this way.I don't get it.Islam doesn't teach this at all.They are giving Islam a bad name.Women are to be protected coz they are entrusted by Allah.I don't understand why they are so cruel..:(

  5. The truth is this is a mindset that is not influenced by religion or ethnicity. Attacks are occuring in Hong Kong; Cambodia, Bulgaria (yes Josie not only in the East) UK and America. Some people think they can treat women or any person this way. Visit www.acidviolence.org to be more informed about this. We do not believe in accusing a religion or people. Violence is violence and is always wrong ASF Pakistan does an incredible job to combat this
