ISLAMABAD, February 24 (Online): Vice Chairperson of the Ansar Burney Welfare Trust International, Shaheen Burney has asked government to pay attention towards the inhuman and cruel treatment of the male dominating society on women in Pakistan.
She sent a letter to President General Pervez Musharraf and Prime Minister Mir Zaffarullah Khan Jamali in this regard.
"There are so many instances of cruelty towards females in Pakistan", Mrs. Burney said in her letter.
She 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 honor (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", She added.
"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," she maintained.
The accused, Farman Ali was arrested in the evening. He alleged that Sultana had illicit relations with a villager; but according to the victim Ms Musarrat Sultana, who was admitted to the DHQ Hospital, Sargodha, the attack occurred because the accused wanted to marry her sister. And when she rejected the proposal, Farman Ali and his mother took it as an insult and amputated her both legs.
Shaheen Burney demanded the authorities to punish those responsible and bring justice to the innocent woman.
Shaheen Burney said that in January another heinous crime was committed - on the directives of Jirga a seven-year-old girl, Aziza Bibi, was wedded to a 40 years old man in Baluchistan.
Meanwhile Mrs. Burney requested the government's most urgent attention into these matters and other such cruelties towards women in Pakistan while vowed to continue fighting for women's rights even of several life threats.

"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.

"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
