women and girls in Afghanistan getting splashed with acid

this is a horrific trend, and yet another sign of the ugly world we live in.

this time, a father refused to marry his daugher to an older man. the result: the family gets sprayed with acid, and two are now near death.

what does it mean when men go to such lengths? is it not problematic enough that a father can ‘give away’ his daughter? now women have to fear death if they don’t submit to the will of another man.

Sad, sad, sad. You can read the whole story here.
