Get your facts correct please, Mukhtara mai fabricated the whole incident which actually never happened. Her relatives confirm that her allegations were completely factious. Saving face well good I appreciate that fact, what about raped women and child abuse in America? Is Sharmeen going to produce a video on that as well! You cant consider Lagaan for oscar winner but if there is something closest to propaganda then we get oscars and Mukhtara Mai kind of shitty examples.
