Domestic Violence Victims (Not for sensitive viewers! 18+)

Acid attacks are common in Pakistan, Bangladesh, India, Afghanistan, Nepal, Cambodia, and a few other countries. Men throw acid on women because they are angry with them for ending relationships and for refusing sexual harassment, sexual exploitation, proposals of marriage, demands for dowry. They do it also for attending schools, for not wearing Islamic veils, for not behaving well, for speaking too much, for laughing loudly.

According to some estimates, the percent of Muslim women experiencing domestic abuse is approximately 20% in the US (almost paralleling those in non-Muslim households), even though the US has many laws protecting women rights. The statistics is probably worse in Muslim countries but many cases never surface simply because of fears of backlash from families and other community members.
