A 26-year-old woman horrifically burned in an acid attack has spoken out about her trauma as she re-builds her life in Houston, Texas.

Julie Aftab was 16 and working in an office in Pakistan when a man walked in and asked her if she was Christian, spotting a small cross she wore around her neck.

She replied that yes, she was and the man became abusive, shouting at her that she was living in the gutter and would go to hell for shunning Islam.

He left and returned half an hour later, clutching a bottle of battery acid which he savagely chucked over her head. As she ran screaming for the door a second man grabbed her by the hair and forced more of the liquid down her throat, searing her esophagus.

 

 

Teeth fell from her mouth as she desperately called for help, stumbling down the street.

A woman heard her cries and took her to her home, pouring water over her head and taking her to hospital.

At first the doctors refused to treat her, because she was a Christian. ‘They all turned against me,’ she told the Houston Chronicle.

‘Even the people who took me to the hospital. They told the doctor they were going to set the hospital on fire if they treated me.’

  1. So not only was this sadistic and evil crime committed in the first place, but the doctors refused to treat her.
    In the West the medical profession take oaths to treat anybody who needs it. Even vicious criminals receive medical treatment, so if these Pakistani doctors refused to treat her, then they are not fit to practice medicine, and no Muslim doctors should be allowed to work or study in the West, if this is what they believe. We should background check all of them, find out what they think and if they believe in Islam and Islamic law, strike them off immediately and deport them if necessary!

  2. The assailant could have shot or stabbed her if he wanted to kill her but he chose the most painful way he could for her to die. Add the crowds of people who supported him and the doctors who refused to help her. [I imagine the police did nothing to help this Christian Pakistani.] Add this to the thousands of other crimes committed by muslims on other faiths and we have to be mad not to recognise the perpetual Holy War the muslims are born into. Treason is the only word I can use to describe the lack of action our politicians have taken when the facts are as plain as the nose cut off a Sharia victims face.
