A man threw acid on his aged mother and nephew over a property dispute on Saturday. The injured were shifted to Nishtar Hospital and doctors have said that both are in critical condition.

Muzaffargarh’s slum resident Wahid Bukhsh had a quarrel with his older brother over property. Neighbours of the family said that the Wahid’s mother supported his older brother in the dispute. “She had often tried to mediate between them on the issue,” said Rashida, a neighbour. On Saturday, following a heated exchange between the brothers, Wahid threw acid on his nephew Khurram. When his mother came to try and stop him, he threw acid on her.

Doctors at Nishtar Hospital said that both victims had suffered third degree burns to over 60 per cent of their bodies and were in critical condition.

Nobody | 13 years ago | Reply @goggi: Females are the main enemy of humans? Please elaborate how the gender that bears all future offspring/humans/generations, and is responsible for bringing them into the world is the main enemy? In your opinion, would the world be better off without females? Seems there wouldn't be one...
Billoo Bhaya | 13 years ago | Reply @goggi: Aurangzeb 1658 - 1707, is more reviled by Hindus and by Muslims by default who rely on hearsay rather than reading. He imprisoned his father Shah Jehan because he was bleeding India with monumental projects in his own vanity. At the same time for years he was lost in morning Zeenat Mahal at the expense of the rise of Maharatas, the perennial enemies of the Moguls. Mogul India was in flux and needed a stern hand at the helm. Aurangzeb provided that and raised Pounds 100 million annually through all taxes, of which Pounds 39 million came from Land Revenue: highest being Bijapur 5m, Golconda 5m and Bengal 4m respectively. In frugality he cut all unnecessary state expenses (something that Zardari should learn from) as he fought rebellions throughout India. Some consider him to be a bigot but he dropped Islamic verses from Rupee coins, which only read the name of Emperor and year of minting. He was a good leader, a good commander and a fair ruler. His leaning towards Islam were similar to Tony Blair and George Bush. They called for a religious war, believing that God was on their side. That was necessary for Aurangzeb too as he did not want a rebellion among the Muslim Nawabs and the fickle hierarchy. India and Pakistan have not changed that much. When people see a ruler under threat all kinds of Sheikh Rashid's come on TV prognosticating the ruler's imminent fall. Same was the case in Mogul India. People ought to know that the collapse of Mogul India was swift after Aurangzeb's death. None who followed him could hold India together and by 1757, within 50 years the British had won the Battle of Plassey and it was all over for the Sultanate of Delhi. Muslim rule in India had come to an end. During the same period in England Charles I was executed in 1649 and Oliver Cromwell had assumed power as Lord Protector and set England on the road to Empire. He built his Model Army to defeat the King and then let that army loose in Ireland, Scotland and then India to the detriment of the people in these countries. Cromwell died in 1658 but his legacy still lives on. Ours in India has nearly vanished.
