Rape and politics in Pakistan

Thread on politics of sexual crimes in Pakistan. Pakistani politicians of all stripes allegedly committed/abetted/hushed up/trivialized #SexualCrimes. Probably worse is yet to be reported.

In the Sindh province particularly two dargahs/shrines are famous for forced conversions of young Hindu girls. Bharchundi Sharif, in Mirpur Mathelo, Ghotki District, Taluka Daharki and Pir Sarhandi, Umerkot District, Taluka Samaro. The 'gaddi nasheen' (or keeper of the seat) of both these shrines are supported and backed by Pakistan People's Party (PPP).

In case the reader is suffering from amnesia, the following are recorded cases of rape and forced conversions. There probably are hundreds which never came into the limelight. The girls were abducted, married off to Muslim men after forcefully converting to Islam. Their ages are anywhere from 13 to 18 years.

January 4, 2005: 18-year-old Marvi and 16-year-old Hemi from Kunri village in Umerkot District

March 3, 2005: 14-year-old Raji from Aslam Town Jhuddo, Mirpurkhas

September 2005: 17-year-old Kochlia, kidnapped and gangraped in Jacobabad

December 22, 2005: 13-year-old Mashu from Jhaluree, 20 km from Mirpur Khas

December 30, 2005: Qosheela's abducted from Ghotki

January 24, 2010: 14-year-old Kasturi Kohli from Mokrio village, Nagarparkar, who was gang raped by Sharjeel Memon's goons. Yet another PPP leader. 

September 11, 2011: 29-year-old Dr Lata Kumari, Jacobabad

February 24, 2012: 17-year-old Rinkle Kumari's is a high profile case, where her abductor, turned husband Naveed Shah is given support and provided immunity from the law by Mian Abdul Haq aka Mian Mithu, PPP MNA from Ghotki.

The recent case of two minor-girls, age six and 14, who were raped in a PPP constituency, Umerkot is not a rare occurrence. Sexual violence is often used as a system to harass, intimidate and force conversion to Islam in Pakistan. There are countless cases in Sindh where children belonging to the oppressed Hindu minority have been sexually assaulted, raped and then refused justice. And in order to further humiliate them and their community, if they are of marriageable age, and unluckily survive the brutality, they are married off to the criminals who perpetrated the crime.

December 4, 2012: A 6 year-old minor, daughter of Munwar Meghwar, a labourer from Ghulam Nabi Shah, Umerkot District was abducted from the street in front of her house and sexually assaulted. The child stayed at the Mirpurkhas Civil Hospital till December 11, from where she was later shifted to Karachi for better treatment.

December 23, 2012: 14-year-old schedule caste (Bheel) Hindu girl from Chachro (FIR no 61/12 u/s 354 Pakistan Penal Code. Complainant Bheel against three accused)

4 May 2007: Brutal attack and threats of rape against female opposition council members of the Karachi city government by the ruling party (MQM) members


Mazar Rape (15 March 2008)

March 2008:
The mausoleum is under the tight control of the three arm forces of Pakistan and there have been many reported cases of rape and sexual harassment of women. It is due to this that the people of Karachi are avoiding visiting the mausoleum. It is believed that the police and city administration are not willing to conduct investigations and arrest the offenders as the suspected rapists are guards from armed forces personnel. They are now putting pressure on the family of the victim not to pursue the case.

18 March 2008: The 19-year-old girl who went missing on March 15 and was allegedly gang-raped by five employees of the Quaid’s Mausoleum for 36 hours, again went missing after identifying one of the assailants during the identification process on Tuesday night (March 18).  The victim identified the accused, Syed Khadim Hussain Shah, during the identification process at the office of the Resident Engineer, who supervises the employees at the mausoleum.
It is also learnt from a WAR official, Sarah Zaman, that, after releasing the man, the WAR team was physically forced to leave by Aga Asif Kerbalai, a representative of Jaffria Alliance and a trustee of Shah-e-Khurasan who had been supporting the family with the case and helped them lodge an FIR (50/2008) at the Brigade police station against the mausoleum’s administration.The physical attack was prompted by the intervention of PPP MPA Shehla Raza, who accused the WAR team of kidnapping the girl, although the WAR team was taking the girl back to the shelter home on a special request by the Investigation Officer.
However, the accused in question has been set free as he is allegedly said to have been employed at the mausoleum on a very high recommendation by the minister for environment [Askar Taqvi, MQM], according to reliable sources at WAR. “It is too early to say anything. She identified the wrong man,” the Investigation Officer of the Brigade Police Station, Sabir Hussain, insisted while talking to The News. 

7 April 2013:
A sessions court on Saturday acquitted three men in a case pertaining to the gang rape of a young woman on the premises of the Mazar-e-Quaid for want of evidence.
The court did not treat the DNA reports as evidence and observed that while they might be helpful in establishing the parentage of a child and other purposes, its utility and evidentiary value was not acceptable under the Hudood laws since they had their own standard of evidence.
Referring to a verse from the Quran, the court stated that someone who made a charge of zina was required to produce four witnesses to support the allegations and upon failure the complainant was liable to suffer punishment prescribed in the said verse.
The court also reproduced a page in its verdict from Maulana Abul Ala Maududi’ voluminous Tafheem-ul-Quran on the point of four witnesses in rape cases.According to the prosecution, an 18-year-old girl was subjected to a sexual assault after being kidnapped on the premises of the Mazar by around five men on the night of March 15, 2008 and was found in an unstable condition outside the mausoleum on March 17.

29 Jan 2009: A girl was raped and kidnapped by the relatives of a Mr. Abdul Haque Bhurt, PPP Provincial Minister of Livestock and her whereabouts are unknown
The provincial government of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) has refused to help the victims. However, local leaders and activists of PPP are agitating against their leadership for taking the side of powerful people. The women leadership of the party and women ministers have not intervened in this case as the provincial minister is close friend of Mr. Asif Zardari, the President of Pakistan. 

1 Feb 2009:
An 18-year-old girl, Ms R, of Pathan Mohalla, Mithiani, Tehsil and district Naushahro Feroz, Sindh province, trafficked to a family through marriage, has been raped by her father-in-law and other male members of his family for a period of almost one month. After she managed to escape, a Jirga (illegal court) was held and they ordered that the girl be returned to her parents. However, a second Jirga, conducted by Mr. Noorul Khan Bhurt, nephew of a Provincial Minister on Livestock, ordered that she be returned to her husband and his family on the basis that the girl's parents had accepted money n exchange for the girl’s marriage. With the order of the second Jirga, the girl was kidnapped on October 21, 2008 and since that date her whereabouts remain unknown. Because of the involvement of the Provincial Minister the police are not taking action against the abduction and continuous rape of the girl. Please refer to our urgent appeal AHRC-UAC-008-2009

May 2009:
The perpetrators shaved of head hair of 2 women after rape as mark of inhuman treatment: One was in Larkana city mother of 5 while the other was in Mathelo in Ghotki district. Families of both left their homes out of terror as police failed to arrest culprits. 2 sisters in Seerani town of Badin district were repeatedly kidnapped and raped by local influential persons. Police did not move as such their families migrated to safer place. In Dadu father and son both raped a widow. In many cases of rape police not only did not take action but sided with perpetrators pressurizing the victim to withdraw report. 

14 Sep 2009:
Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) MPA Tahir Mahmood Handli [now PTI] raided the police station in Sialkot to get the rape accused released. MPAs men roughed up Dunya News correspondent to stop him from covering the incident and threatened to kill him. Handli along with his supporters reached the police station to get the two rape accused released who manhandled the police officials and tore up the uniform of ASI. When Dunya News correspondent Hafiz Imran reached the police station to cover the event, MPAs accomplices tortured him.

Gang rape by PPP-backed teachers in Khairpur Mirus, Larkana (Oct 2009)

29 Oct 2009:
The Asian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) has been informed that senior police officials are preventing an investigation into the alleged gang rapes of female students by a group of teachers. The family of one victim is being pressured to settle outside legal channels in a feudal jirga court, despite directions from the Chief Minister of Sindh to have the accused arrested. Their case has been compromised by local police, who willfully delayed the girl's medical examination by a week. This incident shows the freedom enjoyed by Sindh police to work against the law and the public on behalf of wealthy patrons.
Local media reports claim that cases of rape and abuse have been connected to these three teachers for a number of years – ever since a local bodies system was introduced that gives much more power to local representatives (mainly powerful landlords), and thus their relatives. The men were neither arrested nor removed from their positions in the school. The Rajpars are part of a powerful local family; their brothers are the chairmen of the union council and town council respectively. Local activists and parents of protesting students have said that they were threatened both by police officers and known henchmen of the landed aristocracy. 

21 Oct 2009: The father of a students who was allegedly gang-raped by three teachers, has said that some influential persons of the area and the accused nominated in the FIR were hurling threats to him.
Talking to journalists at Faiz Ganj Press Club on Wednesday, he alleged that police were supporting the accused due to pressure of the influential figures who were pressuring him to settle the matter through a jirga. He said that he would not compromise on the issue at any cost.  He said that due to the threats to his family, they were shifting their venue during day and night. He said that 20 girls of their village had stopped going to school after the incident.  According to the girl, she was gang-raped by school teacher Shoukat Jatt, Ghulam Mustafa Rajpar and Imtiaz Rajpar.

8 Nov 2009:
Asma Khand, victim of gang-rape in Faiz Gunj town, had alleged that the accused teachers had gang-raped her and her classfellow Saima Jatt had supported them. She announced self-immolation if she was deprived of justice and demanded the trial of the accused in an anti-terrorism court. 

The District and Sessions Judge, Khairpur, Ghulam Qadir Leghari, meanwhile, rejected the plea of the accused teachers Imtiaz Rajper and Ghulam Mustafa and student Saima Jatt to confirm their interim bail and remanded them to jail custody. 

Saima was sent to women’s jail in Sukkur. Supporters of the teachers belonging to the PPP attempted to take the accused away from the court premises but the police foiled their bid.

Shazia Masih (Jan 2010)

Shazia, a 12 years old Christian girl was killed on January 22, 2010, in home of Mohammad Naeem Advocate who employed her as housemaid in 2009.

Mohammad Naeem Advocate led processions to reinstate Chief Justice of Supreme Court of Pakistan when he was President of Lahore High Court Bar Association during Pervaiz Musharraf regime when he sacked CJ Iftikhar Mohammad Choudry.

The parents of Shazia are illiterate and not familiar with legal situation and depended on directions of Christian NGO leaders who also not bothered to get written medical report causing death of Shazia after receiving dead body. The incident was brought in notice of Pakistani electronic media which broadcasted news of rape and killing of Shazia by Muslim lawyer attracting attention of provincial and federal authorities.

As claimed by Mohammad Naeem advocate in presence of Pakistan Army Brigadier in home of Shazia to her parents that he have links with politicians and Pakistan Army and no one can touch him in Pakistan but on uproar of media and protest of some Christian NGO activists and family of victim in front of Punjab Assembly building in Lahore, police took over dead body and laid down in local hospital.


26 Jan 2010:
Mohammad Naeem Advocate, who is former President of Lahore High Court Bar Association is nominated a main accused in killing and rape of one teenage Christian girl Shazia Bashir, a housemaid in her home since 2009.

Accused Mohammad Naeem is so influential that after killing Shazia Bashir dared to settle a deal with her parents accompanying with Pakistan Army Brigadier for Rupees 20,000.

Now, Muslim lawyers are protecting a culprit on intimation of Pakistan Muslim League PML(N) and PPP and additional session court judge have accepted bail of all family members of killer Mohammad Naeem. Are these Muslim lawyers custodian of law?

Kasturi Kolhi Rape Case (Jan 2010)

Jan 2010: Short documentary on Kasturi Kolhi Rape Case from Nagarparkar Tharparkar Sindh Pakistan

My sin was i smsed every one to not let go Nisar Khuro in jalsa of Khosos of PPP as they were involve in the rape of Kastoori Hindu in 2009

And those who were involve in the rape of Kastori kolhan were ppp linked feudal, i was harrassed by even Nisar Khuro for being outspoken...

Feb 2010:
On Feb 18, the police raided village Dhana Gam, union council Pithapur, the native village of Veerji Kohli, who actively campaigned for the registration of the gang-rape case.
Veerji Kohli, and 12 of his relatives were beaten up and arrested. The police also threatened to fix them in criminal cases if they tried to pursue the case

1 March 2010: Veerje Kolhi, a human rights activist and main complainant of the rape victim’s case told The News that the village which these people belonged to was not a Guggal growing area. Guggal gum was collected from Karoonjhar Hills, 30 kilometer away from the area. He termed this a tactic to pressurize Kastoori’s poor parents to withdraw their case. He said that the culprits had the backing of local PPP leaders that was why police officials were hesitant to take any action against them.

12 March 2010: Shirmela Farooqi Advisor to Chief Minister Sindh visited Rape Victim Kastoori Kolhi and said rich people never accused therefore her efforts to arrest culprits will go in vain.
According to information received from local NGOs, the Pakistan Dalit Solidarity Network and All Kohli, Ms. Kastoori, seen in the video clip below (also here), is 17 years old and was abducted on 24 January 2010. 

After being taken in the evening by Ramzan Khoso, Habib Ullah Khoso and Ghulam Nabi Khoso, with the help of their armed guard Verio Gur-Ro, Kastoori was allegedly raped by Ramzan, the eldest of the brothers. She was recovered the next day from the mens' residence by a group from her community, where she was found tied up.

The family rejected an out of court sum offered to them by the father of the three perpetrators, Muhammad Bachaal Khoso, who is an office bearer for the local ruling political party and reportedly wields political influence. He arranged a jirga – an illegal tribal court – on 9 February, allegedly within the knowledge of Nagar Parker police officers. The jirga members allegedly pressured the victim's family to accept the marriage of the victim to her rapist and her conversion Islam. The family rejected this proposal and continued to try to use legal channels. 
At the Hyderabad press club Kastoori (featured in the You Tube video, embedded) has threatened to publically kill herself if the perpetrators are not arrested. Mr. Hameed Chand, Assistant Sub Inspector in Naga Parker, and the investigation officer have told human rights activists that they are being prevented from pursuing the case by ruling party members and local landlords. The victim and her family are in hiding, and civil society protests have reportedly not resulted in further action from the authorities. 


7 March 2010:  
In the first incident of its kind, 71 Dalit Meghwar families of the Aaklee village, comprising 400 members, have left their ancestral village to protest against the alleged abduction of a 15-year-old Meghwar girl Daya. According to the villagers, the teenager was forcibly married to a Muslim influential.
The Meghwar community members are considered traditional supporters of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP). However, the community elders maintain that though they had conveyed the issue to the party leaders, all they received are empty assurances.

April 2010:
The Asian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) has received new information about an extreme case of rape, attempted murder, corruption and impunity that took place in 2008 and 2009. The incident involved members of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM), a ruling partner of the Zardari government, but police have failed to protect the victims – two sisters – and have released an extremely poor, gender-biased investigation report. The report reduces the case to that of a family 'feud'. It does not address the year-long struggle of the women to have the case credibly filed and investigated.

April 2010:
A girl of 14 year was gang raped to take revenge from her father for nominating accused persons in a theft case
In the third week of April 2010 there was a theft at the house of Mr. Ghulam Shabbir, 40, a farmer and resident of village Bachal Leghari, Taluka Johi, district Dadu, Sindh province. Shabbir lodged a report to Johi police station mentioning the names of accused persons who attacked his house and stole valuable items. The police were reluctant to file a FIR (First Information Report) against the accused persons as they are notorious criminals and henchmen of the tribal chief of Jamali tribe, Mr. Dattal Jamali whose younger brother, Mr. Rafiq Jamali, is a federal minister. The accused persons threatened Shabbir many times and warned him to withdraw their names from the theft case otherwise he would face serious consequences.
The Johi police refused to give a letter for a medical examination for rape which is a legal formality for the government hospital. Next day people from different villages protested and over the incident. They took the girl to the Dadu district government hospital for a medical examination. The medical was conducted and after two days a provisional certificate was issued which confirmed that she was raped by more than one person. But until now the hospital has not issued a final report as there was tremendous pressure from tribal chief and his younger brother, the minister of state.
The villagers and citizens of Dadu city went to the house of Mr. Rafiq Jamali, federal State minister and the younger brother of Dattal Jamali, the tribal chief of Jamali clan, who promised the protesters that he would help to arrest the perpetrators. However, on the instruction of his elder brother he immediately left the city without helping the victim and her family. They also protested at the office of the district police officer (DPO) who immediately suspended two assistant sub inspectors, Mr. Ehsan Soomro and Mr. Siddique Mallah, to cover up the whole situation against police inefficiency to stop the rape. Action against the police officers like deputy superintendent police (DPO), Mr. Allah Rakhio, SHO of Johi police station, Bakhshal Jamali, assistant sub inspector (ASI) Sain Rakhio was not taken as they are the relatives of minister and tribal chief.

10 May 2010:
The girl was kidnapped by eight armed men from her house in Bachal Leghari village in Johi taluka on Thursday and was allegedly sexually assaulted. They let the girl go after villagers and her relatives surrounded them.
None of the accused named as suspects Ayoub Leghari, Allah Dino Leghari, Laiq Leghari, Allah Dito Leghari, Mehboob Leghari and two unnamed persons have been arrested.
The girl's father Ghulam Shabbir Leghari said the accused were influential people who had threatened that if he did not withdraw the case they would kidnap the girl again and kill her.
16 May 2010:
Speaking on the occasion, Amar Sindhu said that it was the negligence of the elected PPP MPA and MNA that the accused were not arrested after passage of 10 days.
She alleged that the PPP government was supporting criminals in the rural areas of Sindh.
She said that it was the third gang-rape during the PPP government in Sindh.According to her, the accused of gang-rape cases were not arrested due to inefficiency of police and the government.

Irfana Mallah told reporters that incidents of gang rape were increasing during the PPP government as criminals were given a free hand and elected MPAs and MNAs were supporting them. She said that Johi police was supporting the accused nominated in the gang-rape case.

20 May 2010:
Veerji Kohli booked in a murder case whereas on the day of murder of a land grabber he was 500 kilometers away. He was attending a daylong conference of the civil society on the issue of Eighteenth amendment in the constitution and provincial autonomy. In 2010 he was abducted by the land grabbers who were also involved allegedly in the rape of a 17 years old Dalit girl. He was severely beaten during his captivity and was intimidated for raising his voice for the rights of the Dalits who have been bonded labourers for decades.

The police and a provincial minister are providing protection to the perpetrators. The provincial minister is allegedly involved in grabbing the land where the precious China Clay was found. 

30 June 2010:
Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) legislator Jamshed Dasti has allegedly threatened gang-rape victim Mukhtar Mai to withdraw her appeal in the Supreme Court against the accused rapists.
In an exclusive interview with The Express Tribune, Mukhtar Mai, an iconic character who came to the limelight for her brave fight for justice after being gang-raped, has alleged that MNA Jamshed Dasti is threatening her family through his emissaries to withdraw the case or face dire consequences.

6 July 2010:
July 6 The Sindh High Court on Tuesday issued notices to an adviser to the Sindh chief minister and a former provincial minister in a petition against harassment of a woman.
Petitioner Sakina Mallah alleged that the adviser, Ghulam Qadir Malkani, and the former minister, Usman Malkani, had forced her to make a statement before a judicial magistrate that she had been kidnapped by their rivals, Umer Jat and Ahmed Jat, with the intention to rape her.

July 2010: Dr. Abdul Jabar Memon raped a Christian nurse in Jinnah POstgraduate Medical Centre. Memon.....
 A source at the JPMC said, “The fact that the JPMC’s administration has filed an FIR is a big step in itself given the backing that this MLO has. Dr Memon is rumoured to have links with the PPP and the Jiye Sindh Qaumi Mahaz.”
“I have heard that the MLO has links with the PPP, but our party leaders are with the victim,” says Alwani. PPP’s Sharmila Faruqi too has been ballyhooing her party’s support for the victim with frequent visits to the JPMC flanked by cameramen.

21 August 2010:
Noted human rights activist Veerji Kolhi has gone missing, while his whereabouts are unknown since Thursday evening.

Veerji played an active role in bringing Kastoori Kolhi’s rape accused under the court of law, with moral support given by civil society organisations of the province. He was allegedly pressurised by Bachal Khoso [PPP leader], the father of the main accused, to compromise in the case, but Veerji refused, said Dr Ashothama.

22 August 2010:
Briefing media persons about the background, she said that for last couple of weeks, Veerji, a father of two little children, was being threatened by Raees Bachal Khoso [PPP local leader], who has the support of Ghulam Qadir Mari [PPP senior leader] to take a police case back. Raees is the father of accused rapist, Ramazan Bachal Khoso in a famous case where the whole Kohli community, after getting tired of frequent rapes of young farmer women by the influential feudal, dared to report the gang rape of Kastori with the help of Veerji Kohli.


 Khipro gang rape of Zainab Bhayo (Oct 2010)

7 Oct 2010:
Chieftain of Bhayo community told journalists that he and his community were not satisfied with the investigation. The victim girl did not hide her ordeal from her family who supported her and a case was registered, otherwise the gang could never have been caught, he said.
He said the accused boys were being supported by an ethnic party [MQM] who were given shelter and support by sons of Sindh when they migrated to Pakistan.

11 Oct 2010:
Afraid for their daughters' honour majority of parents of more than 100,000 students have stopped them from attending schools, colleges and coaching centres in Umerkot, Mirpurkhas and Sanghar district following a shocking gang-rape incident in Khipro town.
Dr Mir Alam Mari, a leader of JSQM's Khipro chapter, said that eight families of the town had contacted him and informed that a gang of blackmailers comprising 17 boys and seven girls belonging to respectable families chased girls, found out their weaknesses, trapped them in their love and later subjected them to sexual assault and prepared their videos, which were used to blackmail the victim girls' parents or posted on the Internet. 

13 Oct 2010: 
ڈاکٹر امین نے بی بی سی سے بات کرتے ہوئے الزام عائد کیا ہے کہ پولیس ملزمان کو بچا رہی ہے۔ اس مقدمے میں اہم کردار ملزم کی بہنوں کا ہے جنہیں گرفتار نہیں کیا گیا۔

20 Oct 2010:
The post-traumatic fallout of the gang-rape victim continues to hark back forcing her to attempt suicide, besides ruining her health as she has become insomniac, restless and teary-eyed and suffers from constant headache and body ache.

Many families who have been subjected to similar blackmailing tactics by these youngsters – who have shot videos of their attacks on girls and have distributed them through their mobile phones – have not reported the incidents, for fear of public humiliation and disgrace. Shockingly, some fathers have even offered money to the culprits to prevent them from publicising the videos and bringing shame to the girl and her family. Reportedly, a Hindu businessman in Khipro was shown a damning video of his daughter on the day of her marriage, and he doled out a huge amount to the culprits to prevent them for creating any problem for the new bride. Subsequently, the family migrated to India.

9 Nov 2010:
The most shocking comments came from someone who claimed to be related to the Khipro rape incident, suggesting that the video was fake and that “some culprits want to start linguistic war in interior Sindh”, but what got my blood-boiling was this particular remark “I have heard about the Sialkot incident they (both brothers) were not innocent and now reading about Khipro gang rape (...)Furthermore, as per my information this girl is a big flirt, she use to be speak over phone all night with allot of other boys from Khipro, Sanghar & Mirpurkhas areas and it's also came in my knowledge her mother & her mother's sister use to be work as prostitute in Khipro but still media (most of Sindhi media) declared her "Sindh g niyani"(the daughter of Sindh) why?”

Jan 2011:
Months after an FIR was registered in Khipro, the communities involved remain on the brink of confrontation. The case has developed into a volatile ethnic issue, as Z’s family (Bhaiyo) is Sindhi and the accused men belong to the Qaimkhani community. Sindh-based nationalist parties supported the victim’s family and demanded for justice to be served, while the police confirmed that the accused were guilty.  ....
At the most recent hearing in December, the accused were not produced in court by the police and the next hearing has been set for January 26.

26 Oct 2010:
Lawyers from ruling party [PPP] and their henchmen gang raped a girl to revenge a love marriage
The Asian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) has received information that the Sindh police has stopped the investigation into the case of a gang rape of a 13-year old girl as a result of the case involving powerful people, among them two lawyers belonging to the ruling party. A doctor, who is also affiliated with the ruling party, stopped the completion of the medical report, which confirmed the rape. The journalists reporting on the case were threatened by the provincial ministers to stop reporting on the involvement of the lawyers. In retaliation, the perpetrators of the gang rape filed a case of abduction against the victim’s father. The district executive health officer (DEO-Health) has shown his inability to issue the provisional medical report, which was already prepared by the government hospital.

The victim continues to suffer from brutal nightmares and depression after the incident. She has threatened the local authorities that if she could not get justice she will commit suicide.


The minor girl, Miss Naveeda Kalhoro (13), is a resident of Bhiria road, Ratey mohalla, Bhiria taluka, district Naushahro Feroze, Sindh province. On October 26, 2010, she filed a First Information Report (FIR), a police document for legal process, accusing two lawyers from Peoples Lawyer Forum (PLF), a lawyer's body of the ruling party the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), for subjecting her to gang-rape in a sugarcane field. On October 28, she recorded her statement under section 164 of the Criminal Procedure Code before the civil judge and the judicial magistrate of district Naushahro Feroze. 

31 Oct 2010:
Zuhran and Ghulam Hussain Kalhoro, mother and father of girl Saturday told the media that they have lodged FIR at Bharia Road Police Station against the culprits namely Hashim Luhrani, Baig Bux alias Baigo Luhrani, Mustaque Luhrani, Zaman Luhrani and Nisar Luhrani and others.
But police dropped the names of other criminals, Abdul Salam Luhrani and Abdul Karim Luhrani [candidate of PPP-backed Awam Dost Panel who won seat of the Bhirya taluka naib nazim in Dec 2005] from the FIR due to backing of influential persons.

15 Nov 2010: 
Addressing a press conference at the press club, Ms Amar Sindhu of the WAF, Shakoor Abbasi of Citizens Action Committee and Ghaffar Malik of Sindh Development Society said that the girl was kidnapped from her house on October 26 by 12 men who criminally assaulted her.
She was recovered by police two days later.
Ms Sindhu said that the girl in her statement, recorded in a Naushahro Feroze court, had identified six of the accused. She alleged that the accused were influential people, therefore, doctors issued an incorrect medical certificate to spoil the case. She demanded proper investigation by an honest police officer.

A young man goes missing in custody after policemen raped him
In their statement both the accused police men confessed that they had stopped Imran during snap checking at Mafi Faqir bridge and took him to far away dark place where they raped him. In the early hours of May 21 and they had information on his whereabouts.

It is alleged by his mother that high police officers, including the district police officer (DPO), Mr. Rukhsar Khuhawar [appointed as DSP in 1990s by PPP], are trying to cover up the crime of the accused policemen. She argues that when she visited the police station to see her son the police never denied his presence.


DHA Rape case (Dec 2010)

21 Dec 2010:
information adviser Sharmila Farooqui arrived and after attempting to speak to K, met the media at about 7:30 pm. Against all internationally adopted procedures, the adviser not only named the rape survivor but went on to express scepticism and describe K as extremely “hyper” and “rude” as she did not want to speak to anyone. “She’ll beat you with a stick if you go meet her!” Farooqui exclaimed.
Amid a rash of questions, Farooqui discussed M’s statement that led to the FIR. M’s statement was automatically assumed to be K’s version of the events, that she went to a “party” and was raped after she emerged from it. “But this is her version,” said Farooqui. She went on to make the judgement that K’s statements had been “contradictory” because her friends had given different statements and locations.

29 Dec 2010:
The government minister, who was supposed to be protecting the victim added fuel to the fire of victim degradation by revealing the victim’s name and interpreting her trauma as “hyper” behaviour. However, I, don’t want to nominally exaggerate Mrs. Sharmila Faruqui’s incompetence in the matter (she simply has the unfortunate honour of being an easy target) because doing so distracts from the real issue at hand; the cruel double standards applied to female victims of crime by Pakistani society.

31 Jan 2011:
The Clifton police investigated the case extensively. A great deal of evidence was collected, from CCTV footage to details about the car used and photographs of the perpetrators. The names of the culprits have been revealed to K’s friend M, who filed the First Information Report (FIR).
Yet the police are waiting to charge and arrest those guilty of the crime.
“The culprits are from an influential family so the police cannot arrest them,” railed M, even as he praised the work of the investigation team. “The police have investigated this case properly and they have all the evidence. They have identified the car and the culprits. They have CCTV footage which shows a silver Corolla chasing the blue Alto the girls were in before they stopped them.”
As the case remains in limbo, the days tick by slowly for the victim, K.

8 March 2011:
A 16 year old girl was gang raped almost for one month -- perpetrators were released by the police
The SHO told him that many powerful persons and officers from interior ministry are putting pressure on him to release the accused persons. According to the Jagirani the SHO has also mentioned the name of Mr. Bashir Khan Quereshi, chief of Jeay Sindh Quomi Mahaz (JSQM), a nationalist group of Sindh, who was putting pressure on him to release the accused. The SHO urged victim’s father not to follow his case. In the meantime, another accused person, Abdul Hafeez Marfani, arrived and was treated with respect by the SHO who told him to sit in another room.
The Asian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) has received information that a 16 year old girl was abducted along with her brother by the persons from the land mafia for ransom. During the ordeal the girl was gang raped for almost one month. After the intervention of a session court the police filed the First Information Report and arrested two accused persons but they were released within two hours after the accepted bribes from them. The interior minister [Zulfiqar Mirza] pledged before the Sindh provincial assembly that he would take up the case but no action from the ministry has been taken yet after passing two months.

26 April 2011:
One of them is the fake degree fame PPP MNA Jamshed Dasti from Muzaffargarh who not only praised the SC over the judgment but also criticised the NGOs and human rights activists for not accepting the verdict of the court and propagating against the people of Muzaffargarh. He also termed the Mai episode as a conspiracy to defame Pakistan and Islam and alleged that billions were made by projection of a fake drama. 
The PPP MNA swears by God that no such incident ever took place in Muzaffargarh. The brother of Mukhtar Mai, he said, had committed adultery with one of the girls of the Mastoi clan and in the jirga it was held that Mukhtaran Mai may be married to a person from Mastoi clan but this proposal was rejected by a few members. 


June 2011:
Reported in Jang equating Mukhtaran Mai to a US agent, the PPP MNA from Muzaffargarh Jamshed Dasti with a fake BA degree hailed the Supreme Court rejection of her plea of rape against the powerful Mastoi tribe and said that she was like Raymond Davis, implying that the gang-raped woman was on the payroll of the Americans.

21 June 2011:
A journalist has been implicated in a fabricated case of murder by persons from the ruling party. The journalist was assisting a rape victim (a 14-year-old girl) and her family in the enquiry and providing legal assistance. He was the person who reported the case and lodged the First Information Report (FIR) against the perpetrators. The perpetrators are now forcing the victim and her parents, including some neighbors to withdraw the case or otherwise vacate the village in which they live. In the latest event the henchmen of a former federal minister attacked the village injuring many women and children
A full year has passed but no proper enquiry has been initiated into the gang rape and it was later discovered that police officials were involved in covering up the case. With the involvement of the local tribal chief of the Jamali clan, Mr. Dattal Jamali and his brother Rafiq Jamali, the former federal minister and member of the national assembly from the ruling party, the [PPP] and the local police officials are pressuring the victim and her family members including the villagers of Bachal Goth (village) to withdraw the case.

Justice Nawaz Abbasi of the Supreme Appellate Court of Gilgit – Baltistan has taken suo-moto notice of the alleged gang-rape of a girl in Skardu, Baltistan. Four culprits, including the main accused , have been arrested by the police. The victim has also been taken into protective custody.
According to details a government employee, identified as Macha Hassan, deceived a poor girl from a far-flung village, named Lashithang, and took her to Skardu, where she was handed over to some “influential” people, who allegedly gang-raped the poor girl for more than five days. When her condition deteriorated she was handed over to her brother who had also come to Skardu along with her wife. Apparently, the entire family of the girl had been deceived by the main accused.
25 August 2011:
Office of a newspaper, “Daily K2”, has been attacked by a gang of around 15 people in Skardu, the headquarter of Baltistan division. The attackers broke into the office and tied the security guard to chair, before smashing the furniture and fixtures.
A source at Karakuram Publishing Network (KPN) , told Pamir Times that the police did not show up despite of being in vicinity of the office. He blamed Chief Minister Mehdi Shah for the attack, saying the attackers were his men.
It is pertinent to note that earlier an employee of of K2 had been detained by the police.
The police had also raided office of KPN and taken several files and records with them.
The tussle has started after Daily K2 reported an incident of gang rape in Rondu, which the alleged ‘victim’ later denied at the Supreme Appellate Court.

Seventeen-year-old R’s family was held at gunpoint while she was kidnapped from her house in Sher Mohammad Mahar village and gang raped.
The Khenjoo police said that, on Monday night, a group of armed men broke into D’s house, overpowered the family and fled with his daughter, R. The men allegedly gang raped the girl, left her outside her house later that night, unconscious.

14 Jan 2012:
The Christian community in Essa Nagri, Ayub Goth and Bhittaiabad has been silently enduring extortion, rape and torture at the hands of workers of various political and ethnic parties for months now.
Michael Javed, former minister of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) who recently joined the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI), says that within the past month alone, “15 cases of rape were reported to him through various local heads of the areas.” 
Speaking about the plight of the people in Essa Nagri, Javed says that most of the families living there silently go through the ordeal, “as people do not report or register an FIR fearing an attack from these people.” 
He says some workers of a party have established torture cells in Essa Nagri and are notorious for picking up young boys and sexually abusing them. “They ask for ransom of Rs100,000 and whenever anyone defaults on the payment, the boys are tortured beyond recognition,” he informs dismally. As a result, within the last six months, many families have migrated from Karachi towards Punjab, he adds.
In another instance, a brothel has been opened near a catholic church in Ayub Goth. Applications written to the authorities about the issue have not yet yielded any response, says Javed. “I want to appeal to the leaders of political parties to take notice of the issue and ask their party workers to stop harassing our community.”  

In 2012, a Hindu girl Rinkle Kumari was forcefully converted and when she was presented in court, the judge reverted her custody back to her abductor, despite her protest and willingness to join her parents. The judicial magistrate told her that in Islam the home of a newly married girl was the home of her husband and she was not allowed to go to her parents. She was also repeatedly slapped in the court by a member of the National Assembly for denying being converted to Islam. 
Many journalists fear for their lives for reporting on the rape of Hindu girls. In 2012, journalists Arbab Bheel of Dharti TV and Mushtaq Qamber of Daily Sindh Express were threatened when they reported on the rape of a six-year-old girl. The accused, Mr. Muhammad Mangrio, is the relative of the Town Nazim, chairperson of town committee. The Superintendent of Police had also refused to help the journalists and sided with the perpetrators as they belonged to the ruling political party at that time.

Complainant of a 14-year-old girl's gang-rape case is murdered in order to force the relatives withdrawing the complaint

The Asian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) has received updated information on the gang rape of a 14 year old girl (For further details, please see the original appeal: AHRC-UAC-064-2010). The victim's uncle, who was the complainant in the case, was gunned down by the accused persons who were accused by names in the rape case. There were two previous attacks before the cold-blooded murder and the police have refused to take action against the killers. The accused persons of the gang rape also attacked three members of the family of the deceased with firearms, causing them injuries. It is alleged that a member of parliament from the ruling party is forcing the police not to take action against the perpetrators.
After two years of the gang rape the police have arrested only one person and other persons received bail from the courts because of the weak case from the prosecution. The perpetrators, with the patronage of the police and tribal leader, Dattal Jamali and Rafiq Jamali, a member of the National Assembly from the ruling party, the Pakistan People's Party and former chief of the town, Zakir Khan Jamali, were using all possible pressure on the family of the victim and villagers.

Fed up with the injustice, a Hindu rape survivor has warned she will commit suicide by setting herself on fire outside the Supreme Court building.
The married woman was allegedly gang-raped by influential men of the Allah Rakhio Mahar village. The family went to the police, who refused to register the case against the suspects.
When they filed a complaint in a Khaipur court, the Bheels were beaten and forced to flee their homes.
2 Dec 2012:
A Hindu girl, Wijenti Meghwar, 6 years of age and a student of class-1 was raped in Ghulam Nabi Shah town of Sindh province in Pakistan on December 2, 2012 while playing in street.
The police is now avoiding the arrest of the alleged culprit who is by caste a Mangrio who has been named in the case as he is said to be son of a politically influential landlord of the area.
It was appalling that the concerned police did not register the case for three days and instead of arresting the culprit arrested a man whom father of the girl clearly described as innocent of the crime. 

In another development, a brother the landlord accused in the rape case injured the journalist Mushtaq Kumbar in a murderous attack on him in Ghulam Nabi Shah town. The journalist was reporting the follow up of the rape case. He also threatened another journalist Arbab Bheel with murder if he continued to report the facts of case. The police and administration have not taken notice of the attack on the journalists and the threats of death as the police themselves are frightened of the sons and the landlord. The system in Pakistan is such that it allows kidnapping, rape and the killing of girls. The accused roam here freely while the victim is left to die because of inefficient police officers who are recruited on a political basis. 

The chief minister Sindh Syed Qaim Ali Shah was in Mirpurkhas city when Vijenti was still lying in her bed in the civil hospital in this city but he did not bother to visit her. This is the climax of discrimination against minority girls as in contrast to this Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari visited the hospital in UK where another Pakistan girl, Malala was under treatment. ...The Communist Party of Pakistan secretary, Imdad Kazi has condemned the incident of rape and observed that minorities in Pakistan are treated worse than animals. The relatives of rape victim who were staying at Karachi to look after treatment of their daughter have said they received death threats to withdraw from the case or they all will be killed and in view of these threats they will not go back to their town Ghulam Nabi Shah until the real culprit nominated by them in the case is arrested.

کیا وجینتی کے کیس میں بلاول اس وجہ سے پرجوش نظر آئے کہ ملزم کا تعلق پیر پاگارا کی پارٹی فنکشنل لیگ سے تھا۔ ایم کیو ایم کی ناراضگی بھی پارٹی سے وابستہ مشیر کے بیان جاری کرنے کی حد تک ہی رہی۔
گزشتہ ہفتے تھرپارکر میں مبارک رند گاؤں میں چودہ سالہ بھیل خاندان کی ایک لڑکی نتھو بائی کو دو افراد نے جنسی زیادتی کا نشانہ بنایا۔ اس واقعے میں پیپلز پارٹی تحصیل چھاچھرو کے جنرل سیکریٹری کے ایک قریبی رشتہ دار ملوث بتائے جاتے ہیں۔
پیپلز پارٹی کے مقامی عہدیداران ملزمان کو بچانے کی کوشش کر رہے ہیں۔ لگتا نتھوبائی کا معاملہ بھی انہی وجوہات سے دب جائے گا جن کا ذکر ہم اوپر کر چکے ہیں۔
رواں سال کے شروع میں تین ہندو لڑکیوں رینکل کماری، ڈاکٹر لتا اور آشا کے اغوا اور ان کو مسلمان کرکے شادی کرنے کا معاملہ میڈیا میں زور شور سے اٹھا۔ بڑے پیمانے پر احتجاج ہوئے اور سپریم کورٹ نے بھی معاملے کا نوٹس لیا۔
واقعہ کا الزام پیپلز پارٹی سے تعلق رکھنے والے ایم این اے اور پیر آف بھرچونڈی شریف عبدالحق میاں مٹھو پرلگایا گیا کہ وہ نوجوان ہندو لڑکیوں کو زبردستی مسلمان کرنے اور ان کی مسلمان نوجوانوں سے شادی کرانے میں ملوث ہیں۔
میڈیا اورسول سوسائٹی کی زبردست تنقید کے بعدحکمران جماعت پیپلز پارٹی پردباؤ بڑھ گیا ۔ اورمطالبہ کیا جانے لگا کہ پارٹی اقلیتوں کے حوالے سے اپنی پالیسی واضح کرے۔ انسانی حقوق کی تنظیموں نے احتجاجی مظاہرے کیے اور پیپلز پارٹی سے مطالبہ کیا کہ میاں عبدالحق مٹھو سے قومی اسمبلی کی سیٹ خالی کرائی جائے۔
پیپلز پارٹی کچھ عرصے تک میاں مٹھو کا دفاع کرتی رہی لیکن جب پانی سر سے چڑھ گیا تو اس عمل کو میاں مٹھو کا ذاتی فعل قرار دے دیا گیا۔ پارٹی کو اتنی جرأت نہ ہوسکی کہ وہ میاں مٹھو کے خلاف کارروائی کرے یا ان کی پارٹی یا اسمبلی کی رکنیت ختم کرے۔
سکیولر ازم اور جمہوری ہونے کی دعویدار ملک کی بڑی پارٹی اپنے ایم این ای کے خلاف کوئی کارروائی نہ کرسکی۔اب کہا جارہا ہے کہ پارٹی آئندہ انتخابات میں میاں مٹھو کو پارٹی ٹکٹ نہیں دی جائے گی۔

23 Dec 2012: A 14-year-old Hindu girl, N, was raped allegedly by a local leader of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) early Friday morning near Chachro, Umerkot.  .....

The accused names are Aziz, Majeed & Maroof. The case is high profile, as mentioned earlier, because one of the accused involved is the local leader of PPP while the other accused belongs to powerful and influential "Rind" clan in Sindh.
After her rape & lack of any proper forensic examinations, there was an attempt to kidnap her too. The survivor is a Bheel -- not just Hindu, but a scheduled caste Hindu. The rape of children from scheduled castes is very common in Sindh.
Sindh Police are not helping the rape survivor in the Umerkot case as the SSP [senior superintendent of police] of the district is the brother of Ayaz Soomro, who is a member of PPP, and also a law minister.

 Serial rapist and stalker assisted by Sindh government; a Christian nurse living in fear as influential person tries to force her to marry and convert to Islam
The Catholic community in Sanghar district is in fear and expecting an attack from Muslim mob as the provincial government and police are providing full protection to the perpetrator. The man has already kidnapped and raped several Hindu girls from nearby villages but, because of his influence on local police and magistrates, he has never been caught.
Ms. Nazia Masih, 27, a Catholic Christian by faith and a nurse by profession, is hiding from an influential landlord and the police from the Sanghar district. The landlord and perpetrator, Ghulam Mohammad Korai (alias Ghulam Mohammad Bhatti), claims himself to be the assistant to Sharjeel Memon, Provincial Minister for Information, and uses district administration and the police for his own, sometimes criminal purposes. He felt insulted when the nurse refused to marry him and convert to Islam.
He was an assistant to the Minister for four years but last year he was removed from the post. He still introduces himself as an assistant to the Minister and even the provincial administration and police treat him as a high government officer.

it is Saira Solangi. On January 20, while she headed back home from a wedding ceremony, the 12-year-old girl, the daughter of a poor peasant who lives in farmer’s colony in Gambat town, in Khairpur district, was kidnapped and gang-raped. For a peasant’s family, the world is already a very hard place to live in. This heart-wrenching incident has not only reduced the life of the little angel to an extremely sorry condition, she would now be leading a life which will be much different from that of other children.

According to the BHRO, the girl was raped by armed thugs at a house on Gul Mohammad Lane on October 7. Her elder sister had to escape through a window and take refuge in a neighbour’s house.
The girl was kidnapped by thugs, raped and then thrown in the lane in an unconscious condition, and she was later taken to the hospital by area residents.
The agitating crowd said that when the neighbourhood people tried to get an FIR registered with the Rangers, they refused to lodge it.
They alleged that the Sindh government was patronising the gangsters who had been committing crimes and killings in Lyari and other Baloch dominated areas.

The accused had asked the Benazir’s hand in marriage, however, upon her refusal the accused became infuriated and in revenge raped her. On 25.10.2014, Benazir was on her way to her college in Dadu when she was abducted on gunpoint by the two accused persons who took her to an unknown location where she was raped by one of the accused. It is important to note that in September 2014, the accused had also previously raped her and made the video of this incident. Therefore, out of fear she did not report this earlier incident. However, when she was raped again by the accused she lodged an FIR against him in relation to the offence of rape and kidnap.
During the course of investigation the police in connivance with the accused tampered with the narration of events of the victim by alleging that her father accompanied her at the time of her abduction.
Due to immense influence and pressure from the accused and their supporters the police officials refused to arrest the main accused. Meanwhile the accused obtained pre-arrest bail from the Learned Court of Additional Sessions Judge, Dadu. Upon the grant of his pre-arrest bail the accused embarked upon a harassment campaign and constantly threatened the victim and her family.

Her father, Police Constable Rehmatullah Udho, resident of Jacobabad, Sindh, has been working in the Sindh police department for the last 24 years.
Miss A managed to escape after one night and reached the Civil Lines police station, Jacobabad. ..
When the kidnapper realized the girl has escaped, he approached Shafaqat Jakhrani, the brother of Provincial Minister for Population Welfare, Mumtaz Jakhrani. Mumtaz allegedly assured the kidnappers of his assistance, and advised them to flee the area immediately. He also approached the Civil Lines SHO, telling him not to hand over the girl to her parents, and keep her in police custody for as long as possible.
