Nusrat Jahan Rafi who was 19, was from Feni, a small town 100 miles (160km) south of Dhaka (Capital of Bangladesh) on April 2019 she doused with kerosene and set on fire at her school in Bangladesh. Less than two weeks earlier, she had filed a sexual harassment complaint against her headmaster.
Many Muslim girls and young women in Africa, Asia and the Middle East choose to keep their experiences of sexual harassment or abuse secret for fear of "honor killings" by society or their families.
What made Nusrat Jahan different is that she didn't just speak out - she went to the police with the help of her family on the day the alleged abuse happened.
Human rights organizations, UN organizations, and feminist organizations in the West turn a blind eye to the brutal violation of Women's rights in the Muslim world (usually under sharia law).
An estimated 12 million girls under 18 are married each year. Girls who marry before they turn 18 are less likely to remain in school and more likely to experience domestic violence. Everything possible must be done to protect these vulnerable children.
