    Neworn girl buried alive by father in Pakistan because she was deformed
    PUBLISHED: 07:14 EST, 15 July 2012 | UPDATED: 07:16 EST, 15 July 2012

    Pakistani police have arrested a man accused of burying his newborn daughter alive because she was physically deformed.

    Mohammed Anwar, a police officer in the city of Khanewal in the eastern Punjab province, said the child was born on Thursday at a hospital in the nearby town of Kacha Khuh. But after seeing his little girl, father Chand Khan is said to have been shocked that she had 'abnormal features'. He then set about planning how to dispose of her body, it is claimed.

    According to police, he told relatives that the baby was born dead and arranged a funeral for the girl. But shockingly, the baby let out a cry during the service. Chand is then accused of burying the girl alive.

    Residents alerted authorities after seeing him take the baby to the graveyard. Khan, who has four other children, will be sentenced to death if he is found guilty of killing his daughter. Police say they will now exhume the child's body to perform an autopsy.

    It is claimed that Khan's wife was still at the hospital when the baby was buried.

    Mohammed Farooq, a doctor at al-Shifa hospital, says he saw the child after her birth on Thursday and that she was healthy and alive but had a fairly large head and 'abnormal' features. Mr Farooq said: 'I am a doctor at the same hospital where this child was born. This man came to me yesterday with a request that I should do something to dispose of his child, but I snubbed him and said get out. 'No one has the right to kill anyone because of his or her physical deformity.'

    Pakistani human rights activist Farzana Bari has condemned the incident and Raghab Naeemi, a prominent Pakistan religious scholar, demanded a stern punishment for the man if he is found guilty. The case has also shed light on prejudices in Pakistan against children, especially girls, who are born with physical deformities. There have also been cases of parents killing their children out of extreme poverty and an inability to take care of them.

    Girl, 11, Could Face Death in Pakistan for 'Blasphemy'
    By MUHAMMAD LILA | ABC News – Mon, Aug 20, 2012.

    To some, she's an innocent victim, an apparently mentally challenged Christian girl swept up by a rising tide of irrational Islamic extremism. To others, she's God's enemy, guilty of a crime so vile the only suitable punishment is death.

    On Monday, Pakistani police arrested the girl, known only by her first name, Ramsha, after accusations that she burned pages of the Koran, Islam's holy book. In Pakistan, it is a crime to utter derogatory statements or insult the Prophet Muhammad or the Koran in any way. Blasphemy convictions carry an automatic death sentence.

    The accusations, made by the girl's neighbors in a mixed Christian-Muslim neighborhood, sent area Muslims into a fury, with some police reports suggesting an angry mob of hundreds of men descended on her home demanding authorities arrest her and charge her with blasphemy.

    They then allegedly went on a rampage, attacking the girl's family and setting Christian houses on fire. The girl's parents are now in protective custody and, according to reports, several Christian families have left the neighborhood, an impoverished district in the country's capital, Islamabad.

    Police officials put the girl in jail for 14 days, but suggested the charges might be dropped for a lack of evidence. When she was brought to jail, she reportedly had a shopping bag filled with religious and Arabic-language papers, but it was unclear whether the papers were pages of the Koran.

    Some have said the girl is mentally challenged and suffers from Down's syndrome.

    The case is drawing worldwide condemnation, including from senior officials in the United States, a key military and political ally that gives billions in annual aid to Pakistan.

    On Monday, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland referred to the case as "deeply disturbing."

    "We urge the government of Pakistan to protect not just its religious minority citizens, but also women and girls," she said.

    Critics say Pakistan's blasphemy laws are often misused and applied vindictively, often as a way to target minorities.

    "It has been exploited by individuals to settle personal scores, to grab land, to violate the rights of non-Muslims, to basically harass them," said the head of the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, Zora Yusuf.

    Pakistan's blasphemy laws have met with controversy in the past. Last year, a prominent Pakistani politician who advocated reforming the law was gunned down and killed by his own bodyguard while leaving an upscale Islamabad cafe frequented by westerners.

    Pakistan's president, Asif Ali Zardari, has ordered an investigation into Monday's incident.

    Taliban shoot Pakistani schoolgirl campaigning for peace
    By Jibran Ahmad | Reuters – 7 hrs ago.

    PESHAWAR, Pakistan (Reuters) - Taliban gunmen in Pakistan shot and seriously wounded on Tuesday a 14-year-old schoolgirl who rose to fame for speaking out against the militants, authorities said.

    Malala Yousufzai was shot in the head and neck when gunmen fired on her school bus in the Swat valley, northwest of the capital, Islamabad. Two other girls were also wounded, police said.

    Yousufzai became famous for speaking out against the Pakistani Taliban at a time when even the government seemed to be appeasing the hardline Islamists.

    The government agreed to a ceasefire with the Taliban in Swat in early 2009, effectively recognizing insurgent control of the valley whose lakes and mountains had long been a tourist attraction.

    The Taliban set up courts, executed residents and closed girls' schools, including the one that Yousufzai attended. A documentary team filmed her weeping as she explained her ambition to be a doctor.

    "My friend came to me and said, 'for God's sake, answer me honestly, is our school going to be attacked by the Taliban?'," Yousufzai, then 11, wrote in a blog published by the BBC.

    "During the morning assembly we were told not to wear colorful clothes as the Taliban would object."

    The army launched an offensive and retook control of Swat later that year, and Yousufzai later received the country's highest civilian award. She was also nominated for international awards for child activists.

    Since then, she has received numerous threats. On Tuesday, gunmen arrived at her school and asked for her by name, witnesses told police. Yousufzai was shot when she came out of class and went to a bus.

    Taliban spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan said his group was behind the shooting.

    "She was pro-West, she was speaking against Taliban and she was calling President Obama her ideal leader," Ehsan said by telephone from an undisclosed location.

    "She was young but she was promoting Western culture in Pashtun areas," he said, referring to the main ethnic group in northwest Pakistan and southern and eastern Afghanistan. Most members of the Taliban come from conservative Pashtun tribes.

    Doctors were struggling to save Yousufzai, said Lal Noor, a doctor at the Saidu Sharif Teaching Hospital in the Swat valley's main town of Mingora.

    The U.S. State Department condemned the attack. "Directing violence at children is barbaric. It's cowardly. And our hearts go out to her and the others who were wounded, as well as their families," State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said in Washington.

    Pakistani schoolgirl shot by Taliban moved to army HQ hospital
    By Jibran Ahmad | Reuters – 2 hrs 19 mins ago.




    PESHAWAR, Pakistan (Reuters) - A Pakistani schoolgirl fighting for her life after being shot by Taliban gunmen was transferred on Thursday from a hospital in a province that is a militant haven to a specialist hospital in the army garrison town of Rawalpindi.

    Malala Yousufzai, 14, was unconscious in critical condition after being shot in the head and neck as she left school on Tuesday, but doctors said she had moved her arms and legs slightly the night before.

    Pakistani surgeons removed a bullet on Wednesday from Yousufzai who was shot by the Taliban for speaking out against the militants and promoting education for girls.

    Her courage made her a national hero. The shooting has drawn condemnation from world leaders and many Pakistanis.

    Yousufzai began standing up to the Pakistani Taliban when she was just 11, when the government had effectively ceded control of the Swat Valley where she lives to the militants.

    Her father, Ziauddin Yousufzai, who runs a girls' school, said his daughter had defied threats for years, believing the good work she was doing for her community was her best protection.

    A Reuters correspondent watched as she was moved from an army hospital in the regional capital of Peshawar to the Armed Forces Institute of Cardiology in Rawalpindi to help her treatment.

    "Pray for her," her distraught uncle, Faiz Mohammad, said before the ambulance left the hospital.

    A husband-and-wife team of two British doctors who were attending a seminar in Pakistan at the time of the attack on Thursday joined local surgeons in treating Yousufzai.

    She was shot with two other girls on Tuesday as she left school in Swat, northwest of Islamabad. One of the girls is out of danger and the other remains in critical condition.

    A Taliban spokesman said she was targeted for trying to spread Western culture and that they would try to kill her again if she survived.

    "BARBARIC AND COWARDLY"

    Authorities had identified her attackers, said regional governor Masood Kausar. The local government has posted a 10 million rupee reward for their capture.

    "The security agencies are closely working with each other and they have a lot of information about the perpetrators. We hope our security agencies will soon capture them and bring to justice," he said.

    The attack outraged many in Pakistan, with small, impromptu rallies held in her support in many cities. Schools had also closed across Swat in protest over the shooting and a small demonstration was held in her hometown of Mingora.

    Pakistan's president, prime minister, and heads of various opposition parties joined human rights group Amnesty International and the United Nations in condemning the attack.

    On Wednesday, White House spokesman Jay Carney said the United States had offered any assistance necessary.

    "The president found the news reprehensible and disgusting and tragic," Carney told reporters.

    "Directing violence at children is barbaric, it's cowardly, and our hearts go out to her and the others who were wounded as well as their families."

    Yousufzai had spent the last three years campaigning for girls' education after the Taliban shut down girls' schools. She received Pakistan's highest civilian award but also a number of death threats.

    In 2009, the army pushed the Taliban out of her hometown of Mingora, but the attack showed the militia's ability to strike even inside heavily patrolled towns.

    Epidemic of acid-attacks on Islamic women

    Barbara

    I recently received two emails containing some very horrifying stories along with even more horrifying pictures. One was entitled “Epidemic of Acid-Attack on Women in Pakistan”, the article is about women who volunteered to lift their veil and show their burned faces and let a picture speak a thousand words and tell their truth. These women are courageous because they are Muslim women and under Sharia law the act of showing her face is a crime, even if it’s burned and no longer resembles a woman’s face.

    I want you to think about this — these women are victims of a heinous crime. However, the heinous crime is not considered as such, it is considered an act of defending ones honor. A man whose marriage proposal is refused is defending his honor by throwing acid onto the body of the woman who refused his proposal. How dare she refuse him, his feelings are hurt and he is just so pissed off. But hey, we are talking about Islam, where men whose feelings are hurt by a woman get to act out their anger.

    Yep, in Islam Mr. Refused is told not to seek counseling but seek revenge –throw acid in her face, you can even make a human torch out of her, you need to defend your honor man and we will back you up –you are the victim and she wears a veil that covers her face so we can hide our methods of peaceful honor defending. That is until she decides to lift her veil and show the world the horrific barbaric truth of what really goes on within the walls of the honorable religion of peace.

    Warning the following photos are graphic and horrifying and real!

    Story of Irum Saeed



    Irum Saeed, 30, is a resident of Rawalpindi. She recalls how 12 years ago, when she was only 17, a boy, whose marriage proposal she had rejected, followed her to her college. The street he chose for the scene of crime was narrow, and Irum was unable to escape his hot pursuit of her. The rejected boy proceeded to throw a jug full of acid on her. As she turned to avoid this, he threw the remaining acid onto her back and shoulders, badly burning them. The photograph was taken at her office at the Urdu University of Islamabad, Pakistan, on Thursday, July 24, 2008. She has undergone plastic surgery 25 times to try to recover from her scars.

    Story of Shameem Akhter



    Shameem Akhter’s face was mutilated with acid when she was only 17. Now aged 20, she is still unable to comprehend how she fell victim to criminals, who kidnapped and raped her for revenge. Then they left her face mutilated, hoping her appearance would silence her forever and ensure that she would never marry. They have succeeded in destroying her life and much of her spirit. Shameem has undergone plastic surgery 10 times to try to repair from her scars.

    Story of Najaf Sultana



    Najaf Sultana, now 16, of Lahore, was burned by her father at the age of five while she was sleeping, apparently because he didn’t want to have another girl in the family. The burning left Najaf blind. Abandoned by both her parents, she now lives with relatives. She has undergone plastic surgery around 15 times to try to repair her scars.

    Story of Shehnaz Usman



    Shehnaz Usman, now 36, of Lahore was burned with acid by a relative due to a family dispute five years ago. She has undergone plastic surgery 10 times.

    Story of Shahnaz Bibi



    Shahnaz Bibi, now 35, of Lahore, was burned with acid ten years ago by a relative due to a family dispute. She has never undergone plastic surgery.


    Story of Bashiran Bibi



    Nearly 25 years ago, newly-married Bashiran Bibi (now 57), a resident of Sukheki, Pakistan, was pushed by her mother-in-law into a coal stove. The family proclaimed it to be an accident. Her husband blamed it on a fit of epilepsy that she suffers from. Resolved to her fate, Bashiran continues to live with her husband and in-laws and gave birth to 5 children after this “accident”. Whatever money is donated to Bashiran’s cause, her husband uses it for himself and doesn’t spend any on her treatment.


    Story of Nasreen Sharif



    Nasreen Sharif, 23, was once a beautiful girl. When she turned 14, her cousin poured a bottle of sulphuric acid on her face as she slept. His excuse was that he couldn’t stand other boys whistling at her (because of he beauty) when she crossed the street. She no longer bears any resemblance to that youthful beauty. “My skin melted and my hair burned away. I am now blind, I have no ears and I have no sense of smell”, says Nasreen.

    Rays of Hope


    Amidst this grim state of affairs for the unfortunate women of Pakistan, the Asian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) is working to expose the extent of the gender-violence in Pakistan and the misogynist mindset behind it, which is spreading within the Pakistani Middle Class. The AHRC is working closely with acid-attack victims as part of its involvement for denouncing human rights violations across Asia.

    The Depilex Smileagain Foundation is another organization, which is working with victims of acid-attack to help them smile again, however impossible a task it may appear: they are trying to make impossible possible. In fact, DSF is working in partnership with the Italian NGO Smileagain Foundation that believes, “There is every possibility that these survivors can manage to live the rest of their lives with dignity, with some help.”

    A team of Italian doctors, linked to Italian Smileagain Foundation, visit Pakistan every three months to conduct operations on those victims in an effort to give them back as normal a life as possible.

    In September, 2008, the team visited Lahore where they carried out two operations and then proceeded to Multan, where surgeries were carried out in Bakhtawar Amin Memorial Trust Hospital. Some 60 patients were evaluated and 8 surgeries carried out.

    The stories from Mutlan were strangely different. This is an area where people have property and the disputes often revolve around inheritance. Here wrath knows no gender. Whereas in other parts of the country it is often women who are burnt by acid or fires, here there are as many male victims as well. Those who have been working with Smileagain Foundation, say that what they have seen in Multan is very similar to what occurs in Bangladesh. Property encourages men to lead an idle life, it leads them to indulge in pursuits of personal pleasure, and when they see a chunk of their means of this blissful idle life slipping away, their greed turns them into violent criminals.


    Undoubtedly, the life of misery and horror the victims of acid-attacks have to live on is hard to comprehend. While organizations like Smileagain Foundation works toward giving these devastated victims as dignified and normal a life as possible, let us hope that works of Human Rights groups, such as AHRC, of the media and civil-society groups help expose and discredit the Islam-motivated misogyny that is responsible for the malaise, which only can cure this problem and help restore women as a dignified and equal part of men in Pakistan and any other society

    More efforts should be done than just repairing the victims. These practices (assaults) need to stop. Unfortunately, that needs and can only happen from within.

    Kashmir's only all-girl band Pragaash quits after fatwa



    Kashmir's first all-girl rock band Pragaash perform at the annual 'Battle of the Bands' in Srinagar on Dec. 23, 2012.
    EDITOR'S NOTE: NBC News obscured the faces in this photo to protect the band members' identities because of safety concerns.


    By Ian Johnston, Staff Writer, NBC News

    The only all-girl band in India’s troubled Kashmir region has split up after a controversial Muslim cleric issued a fatwa against them.

    However, the cleric -- Grand Mufti Bashiruddin Ahmad – is now facing a backlash with a leading human-rights lawyer planning to take him to court over his claim that the band, Pragaash, was un-Islamic and other pronouncements.

    After the fatwa, the three teenage girls received online threats prompting police to arrest three people, according to several reports including one by BBC News. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia...89#TWEET588433

    Omar Abdullah, chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir, said on Twitter that he was “glad” that arrests had been made. https://twitter.com/abdullah_omar

    In an interview with India’s NDTV, a band member named as Aneeka, who is still in high school, insisted that “nothing has forced us to quit.” http://www.ndtv.com/article/india/we...-member-326847 “We quit for the happiness of our people. As the grand mufti said, it is un-Islamic ... that’s why we quit,” she said. NDTV pixilated her face when the interview was broadcast. “Mufti … is a saint. He knows about our religion and must be respected,” Aneeka added.

    'They feel very harassed'

    However, for human rights lawyer Parvez Imroz, of the Jammu & Kashmir Coalition of Civil Society, the fatwa against Pragaash was the last straw and he is now planning to take Ahmad to court. “The lives of these girls were threatened. They feel very harassed,” he said.

    Imroz, who is Muslim, said the grand mufti had appointed himself to the role and set up his own “supreme court.”

    Ahmad's comments about Pragaash were the latest in a number of “very controversial” fatwas over the last few years, Imroz said, including calling for Americans to leave Kashmir and for Christians to appear in his court. “We are filing the case because he’s claiming to be some ‘grand mufti.’ Under no law is there any such title,” the lawyer said. “Kashmir is very tolerant. Music … is part of our culture. These girls, they have a right to do it, but I’m telling you we are raising the bigger question about this institution in the society, this self-appointed priest and mufti who has been giving a very reactionary … view of Islam.”

    Imroz said he wanted the court to rule that Ahmad had no legal standing, describing him as a “non-entity.”

    Kashmir is claimed by India and Pakistan, which have fought two wars over the region. It is the only state in India where the majority of people are Muslims.

    In comments posted on NDTV’s website, some expressed their anger at the criticism of the band. “We're heading in prehistoric era thanks to morons,” one said. http://www.ndtv.com/forums/news/supp...nt-here-326164

    “It's really disheartening to see such narrow views are still being propagated in the country,” another added.

    Three years ago, Aesha Mohammadzai was forced to return to the family in Afghanistan that had previously abused her, and as a punishment for running away, her husband cut off her nose and ears. She was 20 at the time. But that's only part of her story, which included a five-month imprisonment and judgment before a Taliban court. Now, though, she is living in America with a new family, and has just shown her new facial reconstruction to the world to call attention to crimes of violence against women in her country of birth. Warning: A shocking photo of her injury appears below the video player on the story page.

    Brave Aesha unveils her new face as she urges abused women to 'never give up'

    "I want to tell all women who are suffering abuse to be strong. Never give up and don’t lose hope."

    By Rebecca Lewis | Yahoo! News – 7 hours ago.


    When Aesha Mohammadzai was forced to return to the abusive family she had run away from, her husband took her into the mountains of Afghanistan and cut off her nose and ears as punishment.

    Three years ago her mutilated face became a powerful image that shocked the world and put a tragic face to the plight of Afghan women.Aesha's husband inflicted the punishment on her (AP)

    But now the brave 23-year-old has unveiled for the first time the results of the reconstructive surgery to rebuild her face.

    Aesha's ordeal started when she was just eight years old.

    Her father had promised her hand in marriage to another family in order to settle a dispute between the rival families - a practice called "Baad".
    At the age of sixteen she was handed over to her husband's father and 10 brothers, who she claims were members of the Taliban. She would not meet her husband for another two years - he was fighting in Pakistan.

    Talking to ITV's Daybreak this morning Aesha said: "Every day I was abused by my husband and his family. Mentally and physically. Then one day it became unbearable so I ran away."

    Although running away in Afghanistan is not a crime, in many areas of the country it is treated as such if the runaway is a woman.

    The punishment she received from the authorities was cruel and harsh, but it would not compare to the punishment she received from her family and the Taliban court.

    She said: "[The police] caught me and put me in jail for five months. When I came out the judge sent me back to my husband."

    Her family took her to a Taliban court where they decreed she be mutilated as punishment.

    "That night they took me to the mountains," she continued. "They tied my hands and my feet. They said my punishment was to cut my nose and ears. And then they started to do it."

    That night was the first time she met her husband. He was the one who inflicted the torture on her and left her to die in the Oruzgan mountains.

    Rescued from Afghanistan by a charity, Aesha now lives happily in America with a new family.

    According to a 2012 report by Human Rights Watch, 87% of women face physical, sexual or psychological violence or forced marriage in their lifetime.

    Aesha is just one of those women who suffers in the war-torn country.

    But despite her harrowing past the reconstructive surgery is the start of a new life.

    She told Daybreak: "I want to tell all women who are suffering abuse to be strong. Never give up and don’t lose hope."
