Are we lost touch with them?


..........While I was browsing the Net earlier, I came across this gut-wrenching story about a young girl, Sahar Gul who was sold into marriage at a tender age of 12. The article tells us about the horrifying experience the defenceless girl went through in the hands of her in-laws! Besides being left to starve, to our utter shock, she was chained in a basement and beaten with red hot iron pipes. Guess what? The gruesome torture didn’t stop there! They pulled out all her fingernails when she refused to prostitute herself for them

..........Read the rest of the story HERE! Some of you may not able to open the page as it is blocked by a few countries. If at all you managed to open it, please don’t forget to sign the petition. Avaaz – meaning “Voice”, is an online activist network that tries to collect 1,000,000 signatures to show that the world is against such barbaric act! I’ve done my part! What about you?

..........For I cannot think that GOD Almighty ever made them [women] so delicate, so glorious creatures; and furnished them with such charms, so agreeable and so delightful to mankind; with souls capable of the same accomplishments with men: and all, to be only Stewards of our Houses, Cooks, and Slaves. ~ Daniel Defoe ~

They are no different for me as fellow human beings!

Only those with a heart of stone would hurt these women!

  • Nice
  • Thanks for sharing. Reading your blog reminds me of a story of a rape victim in India. She was nearly jailed while she was a rape victim because she was living in a wrong place. Take a look

  • Thanks Gabriel for the this blog.. Humanity must prevail..

  • I was really shocked to learn about it. Of course, I'm aware that our world isn't perfect, but a 12-year-old girl... I visited the site and signed the petition. Thanks, Gabriel, for giving the link.

    P.S. It's really interesting to look through and compare the average faces of women from 40 countries. They all are beautiful and women of particular countries have some common features. The quote of D. Defo is great!

  • Sometimes reading this story and similar stories, unfortunately there seems to be a lot of similar stories, it makes you wonder how could this is still happening. This does not only happen in the third world, but in England too. I've read an article how a mother in law had orchestrated the killing of her daughter in law when she deemed that the daughter in law deemed to be too 'Westernised and liberal'. :-(
