Lethargic IITian
Musings of a 20-something lethargic IITian on India and Catholicism.

A story that has to be told - how women who have been raped in Pakistan are stoned to death for adultery.

The evidence of guilt was there for all to see: a newborn baby in the arms of its mother, a village woman named Zafran Bibi.
Her crime: she had been raped. Her sentence: death by stoning.
Now Ms. Zafran, who is about 26, is in solitary confinement in a death-row cell in Kohat, a nearby town. The only visitor she is allowed is her baby daughter, now a year old and being cared for by a prison nurse.
