Searching for interviewee,


Hello everyone,
Hope you all are doing well with the second appealing assignment.
I need a help if possibly someone can support me. I decided to write about the topic Violence against school girls including the subtopics such as acid throwing on school girls, and teachers and using the poisonous gas in classrooms in Afghanistan. I have got enough information about these by searching in web. However, I haven’t found a first person interviewee for this assignment. I tried to get the contact of the any of the victim girls in one of the situations above, but I was not able. Therefore, I posted this journal in here, so that if anyone knows or has the contact information of any victim or the people whom they belong to, please do send me a message in world pulse, I will get it.

Waiting for any possible reply,
Mursal Hamraz

Dear Mursal,

I have forwarded your question to Cristi at the Press Institute in case she has some other suggestions!

Kind regards,

Difficulty Coming Forward

Hi Mursal,
I discussed this with Sultana, one of The Press Institute's reporters in Bangladesh. She says it took her nearly 4 months to find a victim willing to be interviewed and even then there were many restrictions on the interview. This is an important issue, but also a difficult one. Because of the rise in acid attacks in Bangladesh, many women have court cases pending or are fearful of coming forward.

I suggest proceeding with the topic and trying to contact some lawyers who represent these women. They will be able to give you the details of the cases you need to write a compelling piece, but they will protect the identity of their clients.

I hope that helps. Do let me know if you have any other questions.
