You got to be a victim to travel by air for free...

I had much more to say that's why I decided to add another post rather than extending the previous one...

All these NGOs have been collecting donations from all over the world in the name of protecting and fighting for women like Ms. Mai in Pakistan. There is nothing bad in that.

BUT, right here, we can see what kind of luxuries have become afordable to those who have been the victims of such horrific incidents.

For example, Ms. Mai is seen quite often travelling by air from Multan to Islamabad along with her brother. Is this mandatory for a rape victim to travel by air by spending Rs. 3,000 to Rs. 4000 for a return ticket in a country where 35% of the whole population lives below poverty line.

Would not those who don't have a dollar to earn a day get tempted?

And why don't those who are financing these luxuries spend the same amount of money on patients who cannot afford hospital fees?

Hmmmmmm hasan i read all topics in your blog all the topics are very good.But i like this topic that You got to be a victim to travel by air for free...And lastly what u have said that people who bought luxuries must think abt poor people in our country.And i think if every one will start thinking in this way than we can overcome with most of our difficulties.
Good attempt carry on hopefully we shall get more and more interesting topics in your blogs.Best of luck.

You are always welcome!

Just to give you an idea, Mukhtaran Mai was alledgely gang-raped on orders from a Village council after her brother was found guilty of abducting another woman. Ms. Mai lives in a village near the Pakistani city of Multan.

What is mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is a rare disease caused as a result of malignant cancerous cells lining the patient's body cavities such as chest, abdominal region or the area surrounding the heart.Your legal rights:

Corporations that manufacture asbestos products have known about the dangers of asbestos-related diseases for more than six decades. In an effort to increase profit, they kept this information quiet, putting workers and families at risk.

Working with asbestos causes serious diseases. Unfortunately, many corporations thought they would be able to cut corners and make a large profit at the expense of endangering workers. Fortunately, there are laws that help to protect those individuals that have been harmed by exposure to asbestos-related products.

Spread the information and help as many as possible.
Thanks
