DHAKA: After six years of abuse, Allah Rakhi was walking out of her marriage when her husband struck again. Snatching a knife, he sliced off her nose.
‘You’re no longer beautiful!’ he shouted.
He then slashed at her foot - brutal punishment for leaving the house without his permission.
‘A woman is only a woman inside the home, outside she’s a whore!’ he yelled at Rakhi as she lay bleeding on the dusty street just outside her home.
That was 32 years ago.
