|She murdered her daughter for "honor"|
This happened four-years ago in Pakistan-controlled Kashmir.
While this case is obviously extreme, honor killings and acid attacks against women by family members are fairly common in Pakistan, with thousands of them occurring each year.
One assumes these crimes are usually carried out by men. What makes this particular one even more horrific (if that's even possible) is that in this case, the mother seems to have been an equally guilty party. Indeed, she appears to have been the instigator.
Why so many families in Pakistan - many of them quite poor - have powerful acid stored in their homes is an interesting side question.
There is so much horror in this news report - that terrible spot on the floor marking the location of the attack, the fact that the parents didn't even attempt to take their daughter to the hospital but rather hid her away as she suffered in agony, the grieving children, most of whom had no idea why their parents and sister were being taken away - the parents to prison, the sister to a hospital where she would later die.
And then of course, there's the almost calm expression on the mother's face as she matter-of-factly describes what happened and shows-off the splash burns on her arm:
Her mother Zaheen described the aftermath: "She (her daughter) said 'I didn't do it on purpose. I won't look again.' By then I had already thrown the acid. It was her destiny to die this way."
This young woman was murdered by her own parents for looking at a boy.
But I guarantee that those carrying the pro-Islam placards and signs at the recent Women's March do not "remember her name."
It was Anusha.
