KARACHI: Aafia Movement Pakistan leader and noted neurophysician of the country, Dr Fowzia Siddiqui has said that the brutal rape-murder of innocent child, Zainab, has put a big question mark on performance of rulers and justice system of Pakistan.

In a statement here yesterday, she condemned the inhuman act in strongest words and said that the head of our nation should hang in shame over their incompetent rulers and justice system. She said the stereotype statements of the government and sacking a few officials are not sufficient but tantamount to rub salt into the wounds of the bereaved family.

She said till the culprits involved in atrocities on Zainab, Shumaila, Tayabba, Tania, Fazeela, Kainat and Aafia are taken to the task, other innocent daughters of this country would continue to be assaulted. She said kidnapping, molesting and murder of minor children have been continuing in our society for a long and so far no serious effort is taken to check it for good from the government. She said rampant corruption and nepotism in our government departments are the main reasons behind the rise in heinous crimes.

She said the pain and agony being braved by the bereaved family of innocent Zainab could not be described in words; however, the family of Aafia Siddiqui can feel it in their bleeding hearts. She said Aafia Siddiqui is also a woman and have been braving every sort of torture and cruelty for last 15 years. She appealed to the Chief Justice of Pakistan to take suo moto notice of kidnapping, molesting, trafficking, torture and murder of children in Pakistan and constitute a Joint Investigation Team (JIT) to review performance of the government, administration and police during last 10 years and tell the nation that how many culprits of these cases are arrested and punished for their inhuman crimes.
