I amg glad that she survived the attack. We had an"honour killing" of a young lady in Toronto recently. What a darn shame. I wish that people from other countries were better educated about Western Laws when they come to Western countries. That might help to prevent such atrocities.

An assault and attempted killing is terrible enough, but when the perpetrators are your own father and brother… that’s just… I can’t begin to think about how awful it must be because I could never imagine my dad and brother doing that to me. May Afshan have the strength and support to get through this ordeal.
