One more Mukhtaran Mai
A group of Pakistani men has been accused of raping a teenaged girl and forcing her to parade naked through her village because one of her relatives eloped with a young women from the men's family, police said on Wednesday.What I find depressing is that from that first sentence, we can construct the rest of the story ourselves and get every significant detail right. That's how common and predictable these kind of crimes have become. And not just in Pakistan.
