Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy wins an Oscar for Pakistan

There are not many occasions for Pakistanis to feel real pride - this is one of those beautiful proud moments watching Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy lift the coveted Oscars statue along with Daniel Junge for "Saving Face' in Short Documentary category at the Academy Awards 2012.

A touching film about a topic that not many want to talk about in Pakistan. More than a 100 woman every year suffer the humiliation of acid attacks mostly in the name of Honour. The women’s “bravery and resilience in the face of adversity inspires me every single day,” Sharmeen said. “They are the true heroes of Pakistan.” 
Pakistan is proud today.
