MUSLIM husband tries to cut off wife’s nose and ear, then scalds baby with boiling water because the woman did something he thought dishonored the family.
PAKISTAN: Zahida Parveen’s husband gagged her, bound her feet and hands and hung her upside down from the ceiling. After he beat her with a wooden ax handle, he traded his ax for a razor. He cut off the lower lobes of her ears, then sliced her nose at the base.
He next used a metal rod to poke out her eyes and then put his finger inside each socket to make sure nothing was left. When Iqbal finished mutilating her, he cut the rope, causing Parveen to fall to the floor “He left me for dead,” Parveen says, ” and then he took our daughter and left.”
