Bangladesh women, children bear scars of acid attacks

DHAKA (AFP) – At first glance, Bably Akter looks like any other nine-year-old Bangladeshi girl, dressed in a brightly coloured pink and turquoise skirt and top trimmed with silver sequins.

A matching headband conceals her left ear, badly deformed and the only obvious sign she is the victim of an acid attack, a practice rampant in the impoverished country, used mainly in domestic disputes and against women and children.

As her mother, Parul, recounts the story of how Bably's father put drops of acid on different parts of her body every day for five days when she was a baby, the little girl lifts her skirt to reveal a large scar on her legs and feet.

"Her father wanted a son. He'd been violent towards me before Bably was born but it was not until day five, when he actually fed her acid I realised something was seriously wrong," Parul, 26, said.

She complained to the police but charges were never laid.

"We ran away and spent two years at the Acid Survivors' Foundation (ASF) hospital where Bably had a lot of plastic surgery on her mouth. She still needs more operations."

With her broad grin and her love of dancing, Bably speaks about her dreams of one day becoming a doctor to help others in the South Asian nation.

"She says she doesn't remember what happened but sometimes she cries for no reason. Her speech is a little bit impaired and she gets teased at school," Parul said.

The Dhaka-based ASF says most victims of acid attacks bear obvious physical scars, which make them pariahs. Bably is one of the lucky ones.

Hmmmmm....I suspect that The Religion of Peace might also have a role in these acid attacks. Any bets?

Not necessarily. Some Hindu Indians do this, too.

What reading I’ve done seems to indicate that the religion evolved to fit the prevalent culture, rather than the other way around.

Find the miscreant father, lock him up, tie him down, and put drops of acid on HIS body every day for the rest of his life.

Start with one eye. But leave the other intact so he can watch when the acid hits his private parts...

May God d@mn these evil people!

“Someone should burn the Y-Chromosome out of this ignorant monster.”

With a flamethrower.

Instead of attacking the child for not being a son, he should have pour acid over his own ‘nads as it is the male who determines the sex of the child.
