ISLAMABAD: A rare, unknown muscular disorder has left a nine-year-old girl from Pakistan with her head hanging at a 180-degree angle, forcing her to live her life as a pariah.

People are scared of Afhseen Qumbar, from Mithi in Pakistan's Singh province, and believe her condition is a result of her sins.

The disorder has rendered Afhseen unable to stand or walk peoperly, which means she is restricted to a sitting position and is unable to keep her head upright. She also needs help to eat and use the toilet.

According to the Daily Mail, her father Allah Jurio, 55, and mother Jameelan, 50, say they have consulted several local doctors but have been told they cannot provide treatment for such a rare condition.
