"The players who were innocent people are still suffering from the affects of their horrendous experience behind bars as they underwent lot of mental torture and harassment for no fault at all," Burney said.
"The image and name of Pakistan was also tarnished because of the unjust action of the Latvian government and its Ministry of interior affairs. And these players now demand and deserve compensation and justice for the wrong done to them," Burney added. When they made reservation for their return to Pakistan for 22nd by Aeroflot via Russia, they were arrested a day before their return on the terrorism charges," Burney recounted. "Their only crime was that they were travelling on the same flight as the Israeli basketball team," he narrated. He said the innocent Taekwando players had gone to Riga with legal visas and completing all other legal formalities, but were arrested on November 21 from their hotel on terrorism charges on a crime they had never committed". "The arrests were made although no weapons or other hazardous materials were found during a search of their hotel but the Latvian authorities suspected them to be terrorists because they were travelling on the same flight as the Israeli basketball players," he said. Burney said the arrest of the ten Pakistanis amounted to a discrimination against them because of their religion and nationality, which was why he had decided to file a compensation claim and fight their case by bringing defamation charges against the Latvian government. "We can also fight our case that concerns illegal arrest and detention in the International Court of Justice and United Nations Human Rights Commission," he added. This (the suicide threat) might be a political stunt to gain political mileage, Burney speculated without naming any particular political party. "However, we must be cautious, as the women may take 'the extreme step' at some other time if their problems are genuine and there is no political motive behind this," he warned. Mrs Shaheen Burney, Vice Chairperson of the Ansar Burney Welfare Trust International has especially thanked to Gabriele De Ceglie, the Ambassador of Italy to Pakistan, Pak Ambassador in Italy Zaffar Hilali and Deputy Ambassador Qasim Muttaqi for their kind support and cooperation in this matter. Mr Burney who all the way came to Italy met these prisoners in Jail and informed Italian government for their innocence. "I am grateful to the Italian government, Italian Justice Court and Italian Ambassador in Pakistan HE Gabriele De Ceglie, for the kind cooperation Italy had always provided to Ansar Burney Welfare Trust International in the matters of humanity and human rights, specially in the release of 15 innocents on Ansar Burney Welfare Trust's appeal," said Mrs. Shaheen Burney According to details provided by Burney, the child fell off the camel while being trained for the camel race in Al-Ain Wednesday morning. As the child fell off, he was trampled by the camel and is reported to be in a critical condition. The child's father is by his side. Burney, however, said that he had contacted the embassies of the United States and Pakistan in the UAE. The political Secretary at the US embassy, Susan K. Raddant, Burney said, had assured all assistance in this regard on behalf of the US government. As Burney says, the new rules published by the Emirates Camel Racing Federation (ECRF) In a statement issued on Saturday, Shaheen Burney appealed to these women to immediately contact the Ansar Burney Trust, as senior officials of federal as well Sindh government have assured that the grievances of these women would be redressed. Islam forbids taking one's life and suicide is a sin in all the religions of the world, she said.

Shaheen Burney warned that "If no immediate and concrete action would be taken by the Government to stop such heinous crime and to trace the murderer of Sufi Muhammad Khan, the Ansar Burney Welfare Trust International will be compelled to raise this issue on international level in the larger interest of humanity and human rights.

ISLAMABAD, Feb 23: Pakistan's renowned women rights activist and Vice Chairperson of the Ansar Burney Welfare Trust International, Mrs Shaheen Burney, has requested for the attention of President General Parvez Musharraf and Prime Minister Mir Zaffarullah Khan Jamali towards the inhuman and cruel treatment of the male dominating society on women in Pakistan.
"There are so many instances of cruelty towards females in Pakistan" Mrs. Burney said. Shaheen Burney said with sorrow and grief that on Saturday 7th of February, in a village nearby Sargodha, both legs of an innocent married woman were amputated by her brother-in-law in the name of honour (Karo-Kari). "Her bother-in-law, Farman Ali, with the support of his friend roped innocent Musarat Sultana of Chak 75-NB, whose husband Ehsan lives abroad, on a chorpoy (bed) before carrying out the amputation of her both legs", Shaheen Burney added. Shaheen Burney said that our society has become so deaf and dumb and even senseless, that have no respect of humanity and human rights as Ms Musarrat Sultana, screamed and shouted for help, cried like any thing, but no one came to help her on her hue and cry. Shaheen Burney demanded the authorities to punish those responsible and bring justice to the innocent woman. Later in exchange of his 4 years old daughter with a sixty years old man he managed to have a girl for his second marriage", Shaheen Burney added. Shaheen Burney said that in January another heinous crime was committed - a seven-year-old girl, Aziza Bi Bi, was wedded to a 40 years old man in Baluchistan. Mrs. Burney requested the government's most urgent attention into these matters and other such cruelties towards women in Pakistan; and vowed to continue fighting for women's rights even of several life threats. Seven-year old Mustafa is one of the children rescued by Burney from a camel jockey camp. After searching for his parents for more than six months, he was finally handed back to his family in Pakistan's Punjab province last week. From his personal visits and from the testimonies of children like Mustafa, Burney has been able to build up a disturbing picture of life in the camps. "The children are made to train on the camels for periods lasting up to three or four hours," he said.
