Women are made to suffer in horrendous ways in some of the Middle east countries. Acid Attacks, for instance are a violent form of attack that primarily occur in Afghanistan and other fundamentalist Islamic countries . Perpetrators of these attacks throw acid at their victims (usually at their faces), burning them. The consequences include permanent scarring of the face and body as well as potential blindness. Acid attacks are sometimes referred to as vitriolage. It could be for simple violations of the Islamic code of conduct for women. It could be for not wearing purdha (the head to foot long black orb) to hide themselves or for growing hair and or for displaying it. The punishment could also be for friendship with on from the opposite sex in the open or for a relationship.
No one asks why the same standards are not applied to men? The punishment for a crime should be equally applicable for both men and women, the creations of the Almighty, so to speak. But target the hapless poor girls only? Is it not better to finish them off before or at the time of their births?
Nobody in the west or in true democracies know these atrocities committed againt women as they have but they should at least educate themselves about what life is like for a woman in some countries.
What could be the proper punishments for the people who commit these atrocities? Why not public buggering with a pumice stone and follow that up with castration…with a hammer
