    Dear Mr. Dakowicz,
    I am working on a series of paintings about literacy in Pakistan, and would greatly appreciate your permission to use this image as a source of inspiration for an oil painting.
    Please check out my website and let me know if this is possible for you.
    Thank you,
    Kathleen Scarboro

    The picture which is shown on media to be of Rimsha so that to prove that she is underage is actually of another girl, taken in 2005 after heavy earthquake.

    You all are damn ruthless, you are discussing the photo and the photographer's catch rather to pity on the situation with the girl and the others there.

    She is shown in international media as a Rimsha Masih a christian girl who was detained by police in a blasphemy case against her in pakistan
    but in real she is a Muslim girl. It shows how western media falsely play fabricated stories to denounce Islam and Pakistan.

    Great effort to capture the pic with story.... It was really panic days for the kids when the life was almost end in Balakot city...few people did a big effort to start some schools there so that kids get engaged and come out form grief of earth-quick. I was also one of them but a big thanks to my friends who help me allot to recover myself after such a big shock and help others specially to work for the kids...
