Pushtun woman, Aisha Parveen fights sex slavery

Daily Times Monitor

LAHORE: The courts in Khanpur are to soon decide the case of Aisha Parveen, 20, and the decision could mean life or death for her, reports the New York Times.

“Ms Parveen ... is steeling herself for a state-administered horror. Just two months after she escaped from the brothel in which she was tortured and imprisoned for six years, the courts are poised to hand her back to the brothel owner,” writes Nicholas D Kristof.
"They're not human, of course. They're just flesh, receptacles for male bodily fluids, kind of like a public toilet with feet." Rantburg.

Harsh words indeed, but it's the harsh truth.
