Afghanistan: Protect 10-year Old Rape Survivor from Honor Killing

act.amnestyusa.org/ea-action/a…

I implore people to check out this link that was re-tweeted on Richard Dawkins' twitter. It is an Amnesty article concerning the potential honor killing of a 10 year old rape survivor named Brishna.

Brishna was raped by her mullah, and now faces the most horrid form of blame the victim. This young girl faces not just a miscarriage of justice, but an abhorrent death. All due to the position of authority granted to this mullah by Islamic injunctions.  Not only does this girl face death, but those who tried to protect her are now under threat, Dr. Hassina Sarwari, a human rights activist based in Afghanistan is now in danger for trying to help, and protect Brishna. Amnesty is collecting  messages, that will hopefully sway the new President of Afghanistan to involve Afghan's government in saving this brave survivor, Brishna.

Please add your support, send a message.  If you think that you can do more, or if you know someone who is in a position of power and can add more than just a message with some weighty prestige--then please take the initiative, and help Amnesty save this brave young survivor.

It should be an axiomatic principal that we protect the downtrodden, the weak and the oppressed.

INTERVIEWER:

In the early thirties, did you write for an audience that you wanted to jolt into awareness?

W. H. AUDEN:

No, I just try to put the thing out and hope somebody will read it. Someone says: “Whom do you write for?” I reply: “Do you read me?” If they say, “Yes,” I say, “Do you like it?” If they say, “No,” then I say, “I don’t write for you.”
