“ Rape for Religion/ JUSTICE FOR SAHAR BATOOL.
First time I am writing in this forum to bring your attention towards a covered incident.
I am women/human rights activist
In our region it is very common news like acid throwing, domestic violence, sexual harassment and target killings etc. you all may heard many news from various different corners about child rape.
The purpose of incident I am sharing is about 6 years old Sahar ,who belongs from shia hazara community ,father was peon in army ,they reside in FC colony quetta, few day before when parents found her missing from home, soon they inform police, after investigation her dead body was dumped near a trash, and her neighbor a clergy (mullah)pesh imam of some mosque confessed that he did all with sahar due to hatred against shias , first he raped ,broke her limbs,hanged her with rope thn slaughtered.
Dead body found from a trash just a yard few feet away from mullahs house.
The apathy of civil society and human rights can also be seen in this case, maybe because the victim family is very poor and can not approach anyone or they belong from shia/hazara community.whats the sin of Sahar Batool???after rape of kafirs the clergy will be in heaven with 72 hoors ??
In this scenario the crime counts for child abuse or sectarian violence ?and its quite tragic even its not in the news
The efforts should be taken by media and judiciary group to bring the perpetrators in conviction.

so this is what the city Karachi has come down to that i don’t even feel safe to go out to the store just a five minute walk away to get my self a loaf of bread. last year around the same time we were making trips to the interiors of Sindh for flood relief efforts lead by Sana Saleem. Our volunteers were roaming all around this city collecting donations and buying relief goods but this year we are hardly there on ground, doing only what we can do under the restricted mobility and access due to the law and order situation of the city.
Karachi which used to be buzzing with eid shopping activities is as quite as a ghost town. And no I don’t really ever shop for Eid my self, so it’s not really about shopping , it’s about those bright smile and joy of the up coming Eid on the faces of specially Kids , the bright smiles at the bangles stall or at the mehandi booth or at the shoe shops where kids tryout those crisp new shoes, of all sizes and all price ranges….
But this year those innocent eyes are not shining bright with joy, but they filled with fear and sorrow..
