UPDATE: Aisha Fitted With Prosthetic Nose and Honored With Enduring Heart Award

Previous here and here. More at ABC News:

[…] “This is the first Enduring Heart award given to a woman whose heart endures and who shows us all what it means to have love and to be the enduring heart,” said California first lady Maria Shriver as the award was placed around Ayesha’s neck.

“Thank you so much,” Ayesha said to the crowd in English.

At the benefit, Ayesha also met former first lady Laura Bush, whose work has focused on the plight of Afghan women. […]

Meanwhile, Aisha’s father-in-law has been arrested in Afghanistan:

KABUL, Afghanistan – The father-in-law of a young Afghan woman who said her nose and ears were sliced off to punish her for running away from her violent husband has been arrested, officials said Wednesday.

[…]

Gen. Juma Gul Himat, provincial police chief of Uruzgan province, said Aisha’s father-in-law was arrested 12 days ago on charges of disfiguring Aisha and of being part of a Taliban network in the area, involved in several attacks against the police.

He identified the father-in-law as Mohammad Sulaiman and said he had confessed. The Interior Ministry confirmed the arrest. Sulaiman was being held in jail in Uruzgan province. […]

However, I really don’t hold out much hope for what we here would consider ‘justice’ in this case. My hope is with the young woman and the new life she can rebuild for herself, and perhaps be a voice for the women of her culture that the Western “feminists” seem oblivious to.
