So Sad! Acid Attack Victim Commits Suicide

| Filed under: Sad Sad

This is SO devastating.

33-year-old Fakhra Younus committed suicide on March 17, after undergoing over three dozen surgeries to repair severe damages from being burned in acid.

Back in May 2000, Younus was attacked in her sleep by her abusive ex-husband, who poured acid all over her face and body.

Absolutely horrifying!!!

The former Pakistani dancing girl had been living and getting treatment in Rome when she chose to end her life by jumping from the sixth floor of her residence’s building.

Nayyar Shabana Kiyani, an activist at The Aurat Foundation said:

"The saddest part is that she realized that the system in Pakistan was never going to provide her with relief or remedy. She was totally disappointed that there was no justice available to her."

Sadly, Fakhra wasn’t the only victim of violence in her home country — It’s been reported that over 8,500 acts of violence against women occurred in Pakistan in just 2011…including acid attacks and forced marriages.

We hope that if anything can come out of such a tragic event, it’s that Fakhra’s story will bring awareness to such a MAJOR issue and that more will be done to prevent such acts of violence.

Rest in peace, Fakhra.

    Don't you mean "allegedly" attacked, considering he was acquitted of all charges in the incident? Once again superior reporting, Mario!

    Unbelievably tragic :( ((. RIP.

    May she rest in peace, am so friggin sick an tired of violent acts against women all of this world. Honor killings & an women being disfigured over some trifling BS is common place in India an Pakistan one day soon I these cruel acts become a thing of the past.

    God that is just awful. So different over in those countries.

    Re: Rohan – He was acquitted because men never get prison time for these type of acts in Pakistan. Women are worthless there.

    Perez- If you think this is so fucking sad (which it is) then why the fuck dont you post the accompanying picture that shows what she looked like with the disfigured face after the acid attack?? You know, the same one that the Daily mail UK posted and where you stole this story from.
    ROHAN:
    STFU retard! The only reason this piece of shit who did this to her wasn't jailed was because she didn't die. They live in a demented country… learn something you idiot.

    islam…the religion of peace. its just the same as christinity dont you know. actually if youre a liberal you dont care if they enslave women and kill gays….who cares if their idea of war is bombong children and raping all the women….they want to kill all christians and thats where liberals can get on board and join in the protection of this lovely "religeon"

    For some it's a relief when you are dead; God does leave people no choice but to end it!

    I read about this yesterday. The pain she must have felt both physically and mentally, unbelievable. I hope she is at peace.

    Re: overthere – Indeed.

    How can anyone feel any sorrow for someone who commits the most selifish act in existence ? Taking their own life. While it may be sad that she died, I feel no remorse for her since it was her decision to kill herself.

    so heartbreaking!

    Re: dryan1971 – Seriously? The woman was attacked with acid! This picture is NOT what she looked like before she commit suicide, this was before she was attacked. First of all, none of us have any idea what it must feel like to go through that, and we DEFINITELY don't understand what its like to have no justice available to us. I'm sorry, but depression can do some crazy things to ones mind.

    Re: Rohan – Sure, he may have been "acquitted" of all charges, but do you know what its like there? There are absolutely NO rights for women. It is totally corrupt. Whatever a MAN says is right. Period. I absolutely believe she was attacked, no question in my mind. You're an idiot.

    Re: dryan1971 – I feel no remorse that you're a fucking idiot.

    @bobo99
    You're confusing the culture in that part of the world with the religion. Islam says nothing about enslaving and torturing women– it is the culture and government in Pakistan, Afghanistan, etc, that allows and even promotes women to be treated like this.
    The Qu'ran says that women should be respected and respect themselves, but it is the President of Afghanistan that is trying to pass a law that would allow men to beat their wives and to not allow women to be in public without their husband/father/brother and without a hi-jab.

    Radical Islam strikes again.

    Re: dryan1971 – Perhaps she experienced relentless, searing physical pain year in and year out since the attack twelve years ago. I hope you never have to come to experience that kind of pain.
