Another word humans cringe at when it is spoken about.

Khyra Isheq A girl of seven who was allowed to die by a failed Social Services Khyra Isheq was beaten with a cane and was allowed to starve and eventually die a slow and painful death by her mother Angela Gordon and her step father Junaid Abuhamza. This happened to Khyra even though she was being monitored and visited by at least nine Social Workers, Teachers, Education Officers and even the Police.
