FUCK YEAH SOUTH ASIA!

FUCK YEAH SOUTH ASIA is devoted to anything and everything about India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan and the Maldives. This includes (but is not limited to) natural beauty, music, film, history, literature, news and politics, food, discussion of the diaspora, language lessons and much more. We feel that the view of South Asia that is often presented is very flat and one-dimensional and we hope to do our small bit to change that.

I’ve been haunted by the suicide of the acid attack victim I posted about a few days ago, Fakhra Yunus of Pakistan. Here’s another Pakistani woman, Naeema Azar, who suffered an acid attack and had the courage to allow me to tell her story in print and video back in ‘07. She’s with her son, Ahmed, who guides her around, since she is now blind. I’m awed by the courage of survivors like Naeema and the work of groups like Progressive Women’s Association of Pakistan that demand justice and an end to the sale of disfiguring acid. We’re with you, Naeema!

    this makes me furious to an extent that I wanna see all of the acid throwers being locked away for a lifetime.
