No nose is good nose

And no lips is no talking, so I guess he accomplished his mission; no more conversations with Mom and Dad.

Salma Bibi, a teen of 17 was brutally disfigured after her husband sliced off her nose and lips, because she was spending too much time at her parents house.

It makes the restrictions on your teens IPod and smartphone seem not so bad after all.

‘He tied me up, chopped off my nose and lips’

A teenage Pakistani woman on Monday told of her terror as her husband chopped off her nose and lips in a furious marital row, and threatened to kill herself unless the police brought him to justice.

The horrifying case underscores the brutal violence suffered by some women in Pakistan, where a domestic violence bill lapsed in 2009 after being held up in the Senate due to objections from religious parties.
Salma Bibi, 17, said her husband, 22-year-old Ghulam Qadir, subjected her to a beating, then bound her hands and feet with rope and hacked into her face with a razor in a remote village in the southwestern province Baluchistan.
"He repeatedly slapped my face and then went into the room and brought with him a locally made, sharp razor," she told AFP, speaking Baluchi in remarks translated by her uncle from a hospital bed in central Multan city.
"I started shouting in panic. He tied my hands and foot with a rope and chopped off my nose and lips," she added.
The teenager said police refused to register a case when her family complained about the attack, and threatened to kill herself without justice.
"I want justice and if it is not delivered to me, I will immolate myself in front of the Supreme Court.
"I will not sit in peace until my husband is brought to justice and gets punishment for the crime he committed," she added.
Ghulam and Salma married last year and live in the village of Karkana, 475 kilometres (300 miles) southwest of Islamabad.
Local officials insisted they were searching for Ghulam and would arrest him when caught.
