And now we have it over here in the UK (on a man):

Well at least they retained the harshness of the law and punishment.

Fakhra Younus, Former Pakistani Dancing Girl Commits Suicide 12 Years After Acid Attack

Fakhra Younus

A former dancing girl who was left severely disfigured after acid was hurled into her face, has committed suicide 12 years after the attack.

Fakhra Younus, 33, felt she looked “not human” after the attack, which was allegedly carried out by her then-husband Bilal Khar.

Khar was accused of pouring the corrosive substance over her face as she slept, in full view of the victim’s five-year-old son.

Younus, then 21, was left fighting for her life and has endured 39 separate surgeries since the attack. She had left Khar earlier amid accusations of physical and verbal abuse.

Her nose was almost completely melted making it difficult for her to breathe.

Khar, the son of a former Pakistan governor, was acquitted, but many believe he used his connections to avoid justice, AP states.

Younus jumped from the sixth floor of a building where she was living and being treated in Rome on March 17, having finally decided life was no longer worth living.

Her body has since been returned to Pakistan, reigniting anger over her tragic case.

The former wife of Khar’s father, Tehmina Durrani, became a high profile supporter of Younus.

Durrani, who said Younus’s injuries were the worst she had ever seen on an acid attack victim, said: ”So many times we thought she would die in the night because her nose was melted and she couldn’t breathe.

“We used to put a straw in the little bit of her mouth that was left because the rest was all melted together.”

After Younus’s suicide, Durrani wrote a column in The News, stating: “Her life was a parched stretch of hard rock on which nothing bloomed.”

Durrani also wrote movingly about the "open disgust and contempt by everyone who set eyes on her in Pakistan" and gave heartfelt thanks to the Italian government for providing Younus with care.

News of Younus's death has been received with sadness around the world, with many calling for action over the 8,500 acid attacks reported in Pakistan in the last year.

I think I would kill myself too in this situation.  But I think I would make sure I took the man who did it with me.  

Poor woman.

Muslim Terrorism Count

Thousands of Deadly Islamic Terror Attacks Since 9/11

Mission Overview

Most Western societies are based on Secular Democracy, which itself is based on the concept that the open marketplace of ideas leads to the optimum government. Whilst that model has been very successful, it has defects. The 4 Freedoms address 4 of the principal vulnerabilities, and gives corrections to them. 

At the moment, one of the main actors exploiting these defects, is Islam, so this site pays particular attention to that threat.

Islam, operating at the micro and macro levels, is unstoppable by individuals, hence: "It takes a nation to protect the nation". There is not enough time to fight all its attacks, nor to read them nor even to record them. So the members of 4F try to curate a representative subset of these events.

We need to capture this information before it is removed.  The site already contains sufficient information to cover most issues, but our members add further updates when possible.

We hope that free nations will wake up to stop the threat, and force the separation of (Islamic) Church and State. This will also allow moderate Muslims to escape from their totalitarian political system.

The 4 Freedoms

These 4 freedoms are designed to close 4 vulnerabilities in Secular Democracy, by making them SP or Self-Protecting (see Hobbes's first law of nature). But Democracy also requires - in addition to the standard divisions of Executive, Legislature & Judiciary - a fourth body, Protector of the Open Society (POS), to monitor all its vulnerabilities (see also Popper). 
1. SP Freedom of Speech
Any speech is allowed - except that advocating the end of these freedoms
2. SP Freedom of Election
Any party is allowed - except one advocating the end of these freedoms
3. SP Freedom from Voter Importation
Immigration is allowed - except where that changes the political demography (this is electoral fraud)
4. SP Freedom from Debt
The Central Bank is allowed to create debt - except where that debt burden can pass across a generation (25 years).

An additional Freedom from Religion is deducible if the law is applied equally to everyone:

  • Religious and cultural activities are exempt from legal oversight except where they intrude into the public sphere (Res Publica)"
