Women’s Day & our shameless government in Pakistan

By Ms. Khan

Dr Najma Najama - bane of women
“ONE thing bothers me a lot. Being a female vice-chancellor (of the Karakoram International University Gilgit), why Dr Najma Najam with Prof Salma Durrani, her closest friend on campus, put my life in danger? I’m ashamed when I see them in the media advocating for the rights of women. I'm ashamed to call them women! Anybody can hire their services to destroy someone’s life or carrier. They’re evils on campus, and enemies of students and our education system.”

This is what Nasira Parveen – who is illegally not being allowed to attend classes by the administration of the Karakoram International University for the last 12 months – had written in her blog last year (Mr. President! I need justice in the Islamic Republic).

As, today, the International Women’s Day is being observed in Pakistan like other parts of the world, I wonder why we forget those women in power, who act worse than rogue men with tribal mentality. They commit crimes against women along with their criminal male-partners, and then shamelessly advocate for the rights of the fair sex in the media. 

Dr. Salma Durrani - criminal on campus
Pakistan’s so-called democratic government’s claim of empowering women is nothing but a political slogan. Why President Asif Ali Zardari, who is also Chancellor of the Karakoram International University, is silent regarding the plight of Nasira Parveen and her family (Journalist seeks protection)?

Is Mr. Zardari afraid of the culprits as officials of the Inter Services Intelligence (ISI), Military Intelligence (MI) and some influential journalists are also involved in the high crime case?

Is the Pakistan People’s Party-led government also involved in the case (Female student victimized on orders from the top: Karakoram University)? Why is the silence despite written requests for justice? (Mr. President! Why are you silent? A female student seeks justice).    

Asma Jehangir & human rights mafia
On this Women’s Day, I also want to mention another powerful woman, Asima Jehangir. She was chairperson of the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) when Ms. Parveen and her family came under a planned attack. 

Ms Jehangir didn’t responded to the written appeals of the victim family rather wrote articles on rights for the daily Dawn (Criminal inquiry sought).

Is Ms. Jehangir – currently leading the Supreme Court Bar – also a part of the mass murder conspiracy of Nasira Parveen and her family?

On this occasion I also want to ask: Is the civil society now a part of the militarized society? (Pakistani minister killed: militarized civil society & rights mafia silent

  2. "I wonder why we forget those women in power, who act worse than rogue men with tribal mentality. They commit crimes against women along with their criminal male-partners, and then shamelessly advocate for the rights of the fair sex in the media."

    WOMEN SUCH AS THESE, IF THE ALLEGATIONS YOU MAKE ARE TRUE, ARE FOUND ALL OVER THE EARTH. WOMEN WHO ARE IN POSITIONS OF HIGH POWER NOW ARE ALL SERVING IN PATRIARCHAL (CONTROLLED BY "THE FATHERS") SYSTEMS BECAUSE THERE ARE NONE THAT ARE NOT PRESENTLY ON OUR EARTH. MOST OF THEM HAVE BEEN "CO-OPTED" TO SOME DEGREE AT LEAST BECAUSE THAT IS HOW THEY KEEP THEIR POSITIONS. IF THEY ARE TO BE CHALLENGED, IT MUST BE BY OTHER STRONG WOMEN WHO HAVE THE BACKING OF NOT ONLY CO-WORKERS WHO ARE WOMEN BUT ALSO COURAGEOUS MEN. SEE THE MOVIE "IRON-JAWED MAIDENS" WITH HILARY SWANK. IT DESCRIBES WHAT IT TOOK FOR WOMEN IN THE U.S. TO GET THE VOTE. IT WAS A SITUATION SUCH AS YOU DESCRIBE IN THE QUOTE I CITED ABOVE AND YOU WROTE ABOUT.

    ALSO, READ THE BOOK BY DR. PHYLLIS CHESLER: "WOMAN'S INHUMANITY TO WOMAN" AND PAULO FREIERE'S "PEDAGOGY OF THE OPPRESSED" WHICH SPEAKS OF WHY THE OPPRESSED BEGIN TO ACT LIKE THE OPPRESSORS AND MUCH MORE.
