A few days ago, Waqar Zaka shared a case of an acid attack survivor in a video. He demanded justice for Raheela whose case remains unaddressed since the last three years.


Like Raheela’s, many other cases of acid attack remain unsolved in Pakistan, waiting for the attention of our government. This is the reason why the government must pass an Acid and Burn Crime Bill through which the survivors would have access to free medical care, counseling and support.
