Mukhtar Mai was rescued by the Imam of her local mosque

Atleast one Imam (the Maulvi or Mullah) did not let us down in Pakistan's hall of shame of 'mullahiyyat' and should be given credit for helping a woman to raise her voice.

"Mukhtar Mai's bravest act is to break this lynchpin of silence. She refused to play her assigned part. It was the imam of the local mosque who first urged the family of Mukhtar Mai to break their silence and go to the police. It was Mukhtar Mai who pressed charges against the men and pursued them in court. "
