LAHORE: 

Khalida Parveen paid a heavy price for bruising a man’s ego – she was doused in acid for rejecting one Nayyar Abbas’ marriage proposal.

With severe burns on her face and body, the special education teacher’s life hangs by a thread.

The incident took place in the Satellite Town area of Jhang district, where accused Abbas poured acid on Khalida when she was on her way back from her work, police officials said.

Khalida, who teaches hearing impaired and blind children, was shifted to the hospital in critical condition.

According to the police, Abbas has been arrested.

A case was registered against Abbas on the complaint of Khalida at the Satellite Town Police Station on Friday.

    They should arrest the guy and let this lady throw the acid on his face and this should be televised live, so that people can understand the pain and suffering they bring to these helpless women.

    If finaly the people discarded the man made british laws that govern them now and apply shariah these crimes would be gone in no time. Just publicly use acid on the perpetrators and after 2 or 3 more of such cases it would stop. But no the enlighted peole of Pakistan love the anarchy ruling this country and think that Allahs laws ar babaric auzubillah

    @Yousaf, throw acid on someone in the US and you will see how harsh man made laws can be. And also how harsh a 50 year no parole sentence in a tiny cubicle can be,
