Honor Killings and Oscar Nomination for Sharmeen

Pakistan’s pride, Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy, also known as the Oscar Lady is ready to bring another change in the status of Pakistani women. Sharmeen has already won an award for her eye-opening documentaries regarding the acid-burned women in Pakistan. This award winning does not only bring fame to Pakistan but it will also raise voice against the oppressed condition of acid-attacked women by heinous males of the society. This time, Sharmeen is being Oscar nominated for her documentary movie about honor killing victims in Pakistan. It is based on the story of young innocent girl, being killed in the fake persona of “honor”. Winning an Oscar is much more important for her this time because her win will eventually become an upheaval in bringing justice to all the honor killing victims in Pakistan.

This documentary movie is named as A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness. It is based on the real-life story of a girl, who was shot in the face by her father because she had the courage to marry somebody with her wish.

In the recent KLF2016, Sharmeen got exposed with the most renowned criticism for her work, that she portray negative image of Pakistan. This hard working and courageous lady denied it quite well. She believes that honor killing is one of the unfair cruelties that dominate our societies, and if people have so much concern with her voice against the problem, they should fix the problem in the first place, because it is not just about one girl but the entire gender race in Pakistan.

Afreen is a young writer and visionary towards life predominantly. I believe that writing is similar to life; it inspires surprises and creates. Being a Literature Masters, I am passionate about viewing the world with literary spectacle. Solely in love with this beautiful part of Universe called Pakistan, I am creating words and ideas for CharchaGuru.
