Aisha


“The following is an abridged version of an article that appears in the Aug. 9, 2010, print and iPad editions of TIME magazine.”

The Taliban pounded on the door just before midnight, demanding that Aisha, 18, be punished for running away from her husband’s house. Her in-laws treated her like a slave, Aisha pleaded. They beat her. If she hadn’t run away, she would have died. Her judge, a local Taliban commander, was unmoved. Aisha’s brother-in-law held her down while her husband pulled out a knife. First he sliced off her ears. Then he started on her nose.

This is all about being a woman,can any act be more bestial than this,a person trying to escape the atrocities and the torture of her in laws……sorry! i think i used the wrong terminology “person”  ,person…..stands for a “human being” and woman are no where treated close to humans…..I am aware that i am quoting an superannuated story,but the ferocity still exists and we all are cognizant about it.If we will consign to oblivion instances like this,how could we afford a life of dignity?
