Target: Ashtar Ausaf Ali, Attorney General of Pakistan
Goal: Punish those responsible for burning a girl alive because she rejected a marriage proposal.
An 18-year-old girl was burned to death because she rejected a marriage proposal. This is one of many recent incidents of violence against women in Pakistan. Demand justice for this innocent girl.
Her family returned home to find Maria lying on the floor with 85 percent of her body covered in burns. Per police reports, four men barged into Maria’s home and beat her before dousing her in gas and setting her on fire. The motive behind the attack is clear: Maria rejected a marriage proposal, upsetting the perpetrators. Three men have been arrested, and the fourth is still at large.
Last year, police investigated 75 cases of women being set on fire in Pakistan. This horrific form of domestic violence must be stopped. Sign below and demand justice for Maria.
Dear Attorney General Ali,
An 18-year-old girl was set on fire because she rejected a marriage proposal. She later died from her injuries. We demand the maximum penalty for those who perpetrated this heinous act of violence.
Maria endured incredible suffering prior to her death. Per police reports, four men barged into her home and savagely beat her. Then they doused her in gas and set her on fire. Maria was left for dead, with burns covering 85 percent of her body. All of this occurred because Maria rejected a marriage proposal.
Violence against women is a growing problem in Pakistan. Women are killed because they do not comply with the wishes of men. This is unacceptable. We demand the maximum penalty for those responsible for this horrific crime.
