ISLAMABAD: This is with reference to your report of June 22 “Man throws acid on wife to show ‘ghairat’”. It is horrific a crime and points to the false levels of prestige we have set for ourselves. Oppressing women does not bring you prestige or pride. The same ideology goes for religion. Oppressing a minority or others does not bring you religious nobility. If only our people understood that.
