WE MUST NOT FORGET
PESHAWAR, Pakistan (Reuters) - Taliban gunmen in Pakistan shot and seriously wounded a 14-year-old schoolgirl who rose to fame for speaking out against the militants, authorities said.Malala Yousufzai was shot in the head and neck when gunmen fired on her school bus in the Swat valley, northwest of the capital, Islamabad.

In this life we are offered a path of Good or evil. In evil it is easy to see the evil fruit and the evil men who serve themselves.
I have spoken of this evil that has spread to all Religions and Governments. We must learn to see this evil and reject it. Government has the responsibility to care, protect and serve the People. The Love for all People must be there as a example of Faith and correct leadership. There is no Honor to God in hate and the destruction of Gods People. The creation of People on this earth is for Gods Glory. God Glory is in the Children and also the Women of this world. There is no Glory when men holds back creation and brings shame to the Glory of God’s Love. Gods correction is in Love and Forgiveness, not hate and the destruction of lives.
"Every day an Afghan girl is abused, raped, has acid thrown on her face and mutilated. Yet no one remembers or acknowledges these girls," Elay Ershad, who represents the nomadic Kuchi people in Afghan parliament, told Reuters.
Echoing concerns of other prominent Afghan women, Ershad said the government took no real interest in women's rights, instead using the issue for political gain and currying favor with Western backers, a claim Kabul has dismissed as untrue.
President Hamid Karzai has repeatedly condemned Yousufzai's shooting, even using it to address women's rights in his country: "The people of Afghanistan ... see this attempt not only against (Yousufzai) but also against all Afghan girls," he said last week.
- Bangladesh, often cited as a model of progress in achieving the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), appears to be sliding backwards when it comes to dealing with violence against women (VAW).
Police statistics and assessments by non-government organisations (NGOs) working to establish women’s rights show that there is in an increasing trend in VAW.
According to police records, while there were 2,981 cases of dowry-related violence in 2004, the figure has already hit 4,563 in the first nine months of 2012. Also, where there were 2,901 rape cases recorded in 2004, the figure for the current year, up to August, stands at 2,868.
Bangladesh, has an area is 144,000 sq km including 10,090 sq km of water. This is one of the most vulnerable places to climate change. The poor depends on what they can grow and like many of the poor Asian countries they are greatly affected by climate change. In our studies on how we can assist, we find over population as one of the causes of poverty and we see this as an extreme challenge to meet the needs for assistance.
If we are to be ready, it must be for Pre-Deployment and Government training of local and National sections.
WATCH FOR UPDATES
The protests are led by a group called Hefajat-e-Islam, which set the government a May 5 deadline to introduce a new blasphemy law, reinstate pledges to Allah in the constitution, ban women from mixing freely with men and make Islamic education mandatory.
The government of the overwhelming Muslim country has rejected the demands.

Shahidul Alam, Bangladeshi photographer, writer and founder of Pathshalaand the South Asian Institute of Photography, said of the photo: “This image, while deeply disturbing, is also hauntingly beautiful. An embrace in death, its tenderness rises above the rubble to touch us where we are most vulnerable. By making it personal, it refuses to let go. This is a photograph that will torment us in our dreams. Quietly it tells us. Never again.”
