Horrifying. That poor woman. And this just about guarantees her sons will grow up to eventually think just like their father.

anyone interested in going on a little "dexter" trip??
the husband and his mother need to win the lottery!!
I am certain that you could lure them away from the wife and the kids.
It would probably only take $100 US or so.

I am not saying that they should be dextered, but they should be dextered.

When your culture treats women like chattel and systematically renders them incapable of living independently through withholding of education and career opportunities, don't be surprised when they're mistreated and rendered vulnerable as family burdens to be bought or sold.

From the article:
Violence against women is endemic in Bangladesh - and acid attacks are common, affecting thousands like Nurbanu.


So I guess it happens a lot.

91 people in Bangladesh in 2011 according to the Acid Survivors Foundation. Go see the Wikipedia article on acid attacks.

I was thinking exactly that. The fact that this planet apparently has a need for an Acid Survivors Foundation makes me want to gather up the decent folks so we can cut out losses and leave, and salt the earth as we flee.

Do these third-world freaks keep acid lying around to throw at potential home invaders? Science experiments? Hunting? Or do they keep a flask handy just to throw at any woman who crosses them. Why is it so common to have a barrel of acid handy to toss around in the heat of passion?

Hey now. Don't go criticizing cultures. That's how racism and bigotry starts. Keep your cultural criticisms to only your culture or the dominant culture of your country as that's the only criticism approved.

Though, I prefer the western method of saying "That's awful... I hope someone does something about it. What's on TV tonight?"

Proposing an horrific solution to an horrific act doesn't really advance us as a people. On the other hand only handing out one year sentences for the horrific act doesn't really advance us much as a people either.

I didn't bother to watch the 10 minute video that goes with this, although I have no doubt it would help.

My first reaction to this was frustration - how was she persuaded exactly? There must be a lot more to this. I expect it comes down to lack of other support services that she would be able to access if she lived in other countries.

It might be pointless expecting there to be any such things in Bangladesh, though. How in hell's name it would be possible to make all the social changes needed for her to be able to be really independent of her husband's family (and blind as well) I have no idea.

It doesn't seem right that signing some affadavit got him off the hook. That's the only thing I can think of that the government of Bangladesh could see to right away that would generally change things for the better - take a hard line on this sort of behaviour. But then again I've seen someone do less than a year for cutting his girlfriend's throat in this country (UK).

Oh fark it. The whole world in general is just so messed up. I despair.

This is what we have to look forward to when the US starts to enforce Sharia law.

And, surprisingly enough, it's going to come from Republicans like LA Sheriff Lee Baca rather than misguided left-wing political correctness.

I feel so sorry for women in third world countries that are beaten, and treated worse then cattle. God forbid they should get raped, it's their fault. Could you imagine someone beating your wife because they thought she was being immoral?

You can buy muriatic by the gallon in every major city in America with not a whit given. They use it for cleaning concrete and it's available in every hardware store Want sulfuric acid? Go to an automotive place. Many will sell it as battery acid.

Either way, 3-5 bucks and you'll have more than enough.

Flouric acid is especially nasty in that it kills the cells quickly and will cause them to slough off hours after even though you'll feel no pain. No clue on where to get that stuff. Mail-order at least.

Are we really sure about that? If appropriate and certain retaliation resulted every time one of these acts was perpetrated, don't you think that most people would conclude the crime wasn't worth the cost to themselves? I'd count it as advancing ourselves as a people if it cut down on the number of women burned in the face with acid or subjected to an honor killing.

This happened in a country where the justice system is very much based on an eye for an eye. Doesn't seem to be doing much good. I think a better standard of living and education would go a lot farther.

Empathy and a healthy fear of consequences, are two different things.

I still agree with you though.

Someone also made a sarcastic remark about sharia law coming to the USA soon and to expect this sort of thing to be happening - actually I remember a year or two ago there was a case in the middle east where this happened, and the sharia law punishment was that the guy had his eyes put out for it. I don't think these acid attacks have got anything to do with sharia law - although the attitudes that lead to them seem to be more commonly associated with muslims. Not exclusively so, though.
