A girl should have the right to turn down a marriage proposal!!! I am really sad to read about the story of this 18year Old Pakistani school teacher set ablaze because she refused a marriage proposal?!!!
Maria Abbasi was baby sitting her little sister when her attackers came and carried out this heinous crime.
Violence against women and girls has to STOP!!!
A Poem for Maria Abbasi
So sad that your life was cut short
How brave you were to say no to that proposal though fatal
Children at your school will miss you
Your family will miss you
The world will miss you
Your attackers did not know that you could have been the next solution to their communities problem
Maria, your story though sad has renewed our energy to fighting every violence against women & girls
Stop these senseless killings…A girl has a right to say no
