Bangladesh: Faces burned by acid

 Bangladesh: The street children

It does not bring in inside the philosophy of Magazine Atticus the corta and sticks. We are in summer and most of the editors of our magazine are of holidays. The newspapers are already known they slim and they resort to more fresh contents. Last weekend I came across with an extraordinary reportage of our edition it joins The Country in its Sunday edition (the central quinternion, not the supplement EPS). There will be four Sunday deliveries for August.

Nila, of 17 years, he leads an organization of women attacked by the acid in the city of Sirajganj.

This is the presentation that does The Country of this series:

More than billion persons live in the world with less than one daily dollar and more than two thousand, with less than two. Half of them is children. 1.100 millions have no access to running water and 2.600 millions do not know the minimal sanitary conditions. The globalization has increased the inequality, creating big poverty foci. THE COUNTRY has traveled to some of the hundreds from black holes of the planet, in different points of the compass: Bangladesh, Gaza, Haiti and Central African Republic. Four human histories of misery that will be published during August

The one that initiates the series, takes for title The black holes of the planet. In this first delivery it docks in an extensive and extraordinary way (if this way it is possible to call to a work that there bothers for its crudeness) Bangladesh and The children without future that malviven the present. It splits into three paragraphs: The street children, prostituas of 15 years and Faces burned by the acid.

  

 More of 700.000 children of less than 14 live in the streets of Bangladesh, in constant danger. The girls cover more risk.

From Magazine Atticus we have wanted to do echo of these reportages to ourselves. Already the véis, we go to cross-current and although we want that the contents are fresh and lively not that's why they are going to stop being awkward. In its digital edition you can see the finished text as well as a series of photos (also they bother, do not please, hurt sensibilities) that do not go out in its printed edition. It is of being grateful to find disposition is good in the graphic means. I leave the linkage to you and also the last paragraph of the first delivery that goes for title

Faces burned by acid

The first attacks to women were in 1994 in Sirajganj, a city with looms. In this industry the sulphuric acid is used.

 

The dangers of the girls and of the women are not alone in the street. As in other countries, in Bangladesh also there is genre violence, with the aggravating circumstance of which there the acid is used like weapon. Thousands of women live with the face or the body burned by the sulphuric acid that someone threw on them.

Nila has 17 years and she is the leader of an organization of women attacked by the acid, in the city of Sirajganj, to approximately 170 kilometers to the north of Dhaka. It has the face and departs from its body burned and has decided that he is going to dedicate its life to denouncing and to finishing with this savagery.

“I married in 2006, with only 13 years, in a marriage arranged by my parents, in which it was necessary to pay dowry”, he tells calmly. “My husband was much major than I, he was traveling very much to Saudi Arabia, because it was working there, and whenever it was returning I was sticking. I did not love, it got tired soon of me. One day said to me that we were going to live to Riyadh and that as it was not obeying him, I was going to sell in any place. I was opposed for many days, until February 18, 2008 came to house with a bottle full of acid and threw it to me for the face and the whole body”.

Nila had then 15 years. “The attack finished with my life, but I have decided that I cannot give up and am going to dedicate all my forces to fight against these people”. Thanks to the movement at that nila presides the aggressors are being judged by hardness and they are confident of finishing with these attacks.

The first cases took place in 1994, precisely in the area of Sirajganj, a district in which more than 500.000 persons are employed at the industry of the looms. The sulphuric acid is used to fix the colors in the cotton threads and, although only it can be bought by the one that has a license, the acid circulates without problems along the streets.

Young man Nila has decided to dedicate its life to denouncing and to be finished with this wild practice.

Nurun Nahar, 30 years, also knows what is to see its life destroyed for an attack with acid. “It was in 1995, when I was 15 years old”, he tells. “He was living in the Patuakhli district, to the south of country, with my mother and my brothers. There was a 18-year-old boy who was studying in the same school and who asked me for relations several times and I always said to him that not. One day said to me, very violently, that if he did not love him it was going to ruin my life, but I was not of him afraid”.

“To a few days, July 13, 1995, it entered my night house and acid pulled to me at the face”, remembers Nurun with a chill. “I did not know what I had spent. There me was hurting very much the face and the arms; he was feeling as if she was dead. In the morning they took me to hospital and I began all kinds of treatments. I spent eight months of hospital in hospital”.

Its life was finished until a well-known activist of Bangladesh, Nasreen Parvin Har, read its history in a newspaper and decided to help it. “The police had not done anything when my mother denounced it”, tells Nurun, “but it came when Nasreen began investigating and they stopped it. In 1997 they condemned him to death, although the judgment is appealed. But the important thing is that I returned to the life. I think about the present and about future and attempt to forget the past, although these marks in my face it are very difficult”.

Thousands of women victims of the violence of genre end with the face or the body burned by the acid

Nurun is employed at Action Aid Bangladesh in a support program to the women attacked by acid. There it took Nasreen in 2004, when she was nominated a director of this organization. In 2006, Nasreen Parvin Har died in a traffic accident, although its project and its legacy are still alive in Bangladesh.
