Habib Sulemani — 17 months in solitary confinement

The Terrorland Report

HABIB R. Sulemani, a Pakistani writer/journalist in solitary confinement for 17 months, in this exclusive photo, taken yesterday in Rawalpindi,  looks outside his cell-like room.

"The two generations of chirping birds in the neighborhood are my best friends," Mr. Sulemani told a member of The Terrorland Team.

"They sing me sweet songs and I recite them my spontaneously written poems. We often appreciate each other, but when I write something against the military establishment, then the crows often agitate!"

Unfortunately, he has stopped writing blogs for The Terrorland without giving any reason.

This has left the Team shattered, and for over a week, he is being persuaded to write about his suffering as the whole world is silently monitoring this worst kind of tyranny and oppression against a writer in the modern age.

Mr. Sulemani along his family members is under great pressure from the Pakistani military establishment especially the secret agencies, ISI and MI, which has isolated him in the militarized and Talibanized country.

Despite appeals for provision of protection and justice, the fragile civilian government is still silent due to pressure from the powerful accused.

If you are not aware of the tragedy, then, please, read the related posts and Mr. Suleamani's poems on The Terrorland group blogs' sidebar. Thanks.
