Journalist Kristof Reports in Pakistan

November 30, 2008

Videos below, especially the last two, are not the easy ones to watch. It’s really sad, but there are some signs of new hope going on; I hope. Reported by Nicholas D. Kristof from New York Times:

While the U.S. government is fighting Islamic extremism in Pakistan with bombs, private donations are quietly financing a more important campaign: education.

From rape to slavery to honor killings, extreme oppression can be the norm for Pakistani women. But, Times Op-Ed columnist Nicholas D. Kristof reports from Pakistan that one courageous woman has built an oasis of hope in her village.

Westerners associate terrorism in Pakistan with suicide bombers, but the real emerging terrorist threat for Pakistani women is being disfigured by acid attacks, often by their own husbands, Nicholas D. Kristof says.
