It seems that a woman’s home is her castle, even in India:
Rukhsana Kausar, 21, was with her parents and brother in Jammu and Kashmir when three gunmen, believed to be Pakistani militants, forced their way in and demanded food and beds for the night…
When they forced their way into Miss Kausar’s home, her father Noor Mohammad refused their demands and was attacked.
His daughter was hiding under a bed when she heard him crying as the gunmen thrashed him with sticks. According to police, she ran towards her father’s attacker and struck him with an axe. As he collapsed, she snatched his AK47 and shot him dead.
She also shot and wounded another militant as he made his escape.
Ms. Kausar may have actually hit the jackpot; authorities are speculating that the terrorist she killed was Uzafa Shah, a Pakistani Lashkar e Taiba commander who has a price on his head and who has been operating in the area for past four years. If so, she may receive a substantial reward for her actions.
If terrorists got this kind of treatment every time they tried something, I have a feeling there would be far fewer terrorists.
