    According to a Rand Corporation commentary, hundreds of women in Pakistan and Afghanistan have been blinded or maimed “when acid was thrown on their unveiled faces by male fanatics who considered them improperly dressed”.Attacks or threats of attacks on women who failed to wear hijab or were otherwise “immodestly dressed” have been reported in other countries as well. In Afghanistan in November 2008, extremists subjected schoolgirls to acid attacks for attending school. Similarly, in the run-up to the Islamic Revolution from 1978–1979, Ayatollah Khomenei’s supporters threw acid at hijab-free women and clean-shaven men in order to coerce the population into obeying strict Islamic mores.

    The chemical agents most commonly used to commit these attacks are hydrochloric acid and sulfuric acid. According to Mridula Bandyopadhyay and Mahmuda Rahman Khan, it is a form of violence primarily targeted at women. They describe it as a relatively recent form of violence, with the earliest record in Bangladesh from 1983. The scholar Afroza Anwary points out that acid violence occurs not only in Bangladesh but also in Pakistan, China, Ethiopia and has occurred historically in Europe.

    The Rebellion of Muslim Women May Defeat the Third Jihad

    I don’t know so much about this-I have a hard time believing that Muslim women are getting away with not having children-wouldn’t that mean further abuse/death?

    You shouldn’t be shocked by this. It’s foolish to expect anything close to human behavior from Muslims.
