Afghan boy burns himself in public cross-road after bullies rape his favorite girl

He died at the same day after he burned himself, but he left a letter asking the people to stand firmly against injustice so they do not face with the same situation

Firuz, a 23 year old Afghan boy burned himself on Saturday at Pashtunistan cross-road of Kabul City after her favorite girl gang raped by a group of unknown men.

He died at the same day after he burned himself, but he left a letter asking the people to stand firmly against injustice so they do not face with the same situation.

The letter says,” She gets off the Taxi, she walks toward the University while a governmental vehicle kidnaps the girl, she cries a lot but everyone is deaf, they pass through several police checkpoints, police salutes without hearing the girl screaming and finally she goes to comatose and when she gets up a Satan rapes her while she was on her period”.

Firuz loved the girl and they were supposed to be engaged but they failed to make their dreams into realities.

An Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission (AIHRC) official Latifa Sultani who is the women’s & children rights program coordinator strongly condemned the incident and said that the government is not caring to these issues; that is why we witness several incidents on daily basis.

Recently violence against women has dramatically increased in all over Afghanistan.

One of the main reasons behind the increment is the government deficiency and lack of the law enforcement over bullies.
