Zainab was attacked during 2008 summer. Jatoi, field officer of Acid Survivors Foundation Pakistan, convinced her husband not to get his revenge as he wanted to throw acid his turn. Shakaib Ahmad, lawyer at the District Officer Civil Defense at Muzzafar Garh : « We are in a society where revenge is a matter of honor. When your honor is sullied, you have to act. It's an eye for an eye. » When a woman refuse a marriage, she hurts a man's honor. When he's going to throw acid on her face, the suitor, in a way,  appropriates this woman : If i can't have it, no one is going to have it". Around Muzzafar Garh, Pakistan-2009
