Before I say anything, I wanted to preface my thoughts by saying that the tragedy that befallen Shukria was…. inhumanely terrible, and so are all the other tragedies which were left untold.
I also wanted to say that I have no problems with fiction; it has the ability to explore ideas previously unexplored, nor do I have any problems with real life events being the basis of a fictional story.
All those said, the moment I realized that some of the things written in this story were potentially untrue — especially the words they say — I felt disturbed. Perhaps for a story this painful, especially when the names are the same, I prefer knowing that the things they say are at least based on actual words they say, though I’m not entirely sure why.
