All that changed one night when she was walking home from work with her two sisters and a stalker poured sulphuric acid in her face.
Kamilat and her sisters were on their way home from their mother's shop when a young man forced them to go down a dark alley and then someone came and threw acid in their faces. Her sisters, Zeyneba and Zubyeda, escaped with lesser injuries but their faces were also burnt by the acid. But Kamilat was the target so she was worse hit.
It was later discovered that the man who bathed Kamilat with acid was someone who had been bothering the young girl for over 4 years. He had been giving her a hard time but she didn't tell the family for fear that something would happen to them. He was always saying he would use a gun on them.
Kamilat is now lying in hospital disfigured beyond recognition.
Her skin is red raw, her eyelids have almost been entirely destroyed and her hairline has been burnt back.
All this is for what? The guy who did this to this young girl was aiming for...? I don't understand the cruelty of the human mind. How anyone can plot such a barbaric act against another fellow human is beyond my understanding. No matter what the offence, no matter the provocation, this is just not the way to go about life. I don't know who this guy is, but God does and I know his punishment is waiting for him. He will get what he deserves!
