Islamic Republic of Pakistan has let down women again by surrendering to the fundamentalists!

Islamic Republic of Pakistan has let down women again by surrendering to the fundamentalists!

Vani-Swara or Watta Satta

Girls can be excanged for debts, debt recovery and other proceedings: Islamic Republic of Pakistan (hereinafter mentioned as IRP) has been notorious for pedophile activities carried on in Madrasas by Mohammedan clerics. Though, many reports came, arrests made, but, prosecutions have been limited and the involved maulanas, kajis and Mullahs escaped. While the boys are exploited in this way, the girl-children are sexploited in a different way, under the guise of “marriages”. Child marriage in Pakistan is connected with tradition, culture, and customary practices. It sometimes involves the transfer of money, settlement of debts or exchange of daughters (Vani/Swara or Watta Satta) sanctioned by  a Jirga or Panchayat (council of elders from the community)[1]. It is estimated that 21% of girls in Pakistan are married before the age of 18. When the question of “non-Muslims” come, the “marriages” become atrocious, horrible and ending with prostitution, as Islamic law can be applicable for such activities under mutah and other forms of marriages. Thus, by and large the Islamic law has been used only to sexploit the girls and women.

IRP obligation to end child marriage and legislations stopped by the clerics: As awareness is created and educated women have started questioning such practices, IRP has pledged to end child marriage by 2030 as part of a global initiative. Based on this, IRP gets many funds and monetary packages from the global organizations. Yet, the legislations brought to curtail, ban and stop the Child marriages and pedophile activities have been stopped by the Mohammedan clerics under the pretext of Quran, Hadis and Shariat. In other words, the funds received for the purpose have not been producing desired effect, instead, opposite results show the other-way happenings there. According to a Gallup survey released in October 2017, approximately 7.3 million people in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan were married before the age of 16, and an additional 15.5 million Pakistanis got married before they were 18. Gallup calls this “child marriage” for its survey purposes[2]. The observation made, “Child brides often drop out of school and become pregnant, and these early pregnancies have a greater risk of ending in maternal or infant death,……….Child brides are also at greater risk of sexual violence, abuse, social isolation and exploitation.” said Gallup[3].

Paki riots-electoral reform bill-TOI

The bills were stalled in 2014, 2016 and so on: A bid to ban child marriage in Pakistan utterly failed, after the Council of Islamic Ideology declared the legislation “anti-Islamic” and “blasphemous.”  The bill didn’t even move past the first stage in the legislative process, The Express Tribune reports[4]. It was almost immediately pulled by Pakistan Muslim League party’s Marvi Menon following condemnation from CII, whose job it is to advise the legislature on whether bills are compliant with Sharia law. In this case, the bill clearly violated Islamic law as tradition holds marriage as acceptable when a girl hits puberty[5]. Sheerani had opposed the proposed amendments, saying they were contrary to Islamic teachings and laws. “Parliament cannot create legislation that is against the teachings of the Holy Quran or Sunnah,” he had said while backing his arguments with relevant laws and a few references from the Holy Quran and Hadith. According to Islamic laws, marriage can be solemnised when a girl attains puberty, Sheerani claimed[6]. After CII’s declaration, a parliamentary committee rejected the legislation solely for religious reasons and Menon subsequently pulled the legislation. Existing legislation in Pakistan already violates Islamic law. The Child Marriage Restraint (Amendment) Act 2014 places the legal age of marriage at 16 for women, but the recent proposal attempted to move that age up to 18 and also included serious punishment for the common practice of child marriage. That punishment would have included prison for up to two years for anyone caught engaging in child marriage[7].

Pakistan draft electoral bill, 2017-3

In May 2017 also, the National Assembly rejected the draft Child Marriage Restraint Act for the second time: Social and gender inequality, a desire to control women’s sexuality and protect family honour, economic hardship and lack of awareness of the harmful impact of child marriage are common driving factors[8]. Pakistan’s Child Marriage Restraint Act (CMRA) 1929 sets the legal age for marriage to 16 for women and 18 for men. In May 2017, the National Assembly rejected the draft Child Marriage Restraint Act for the second time. The proposal would have increased the legal age for marriage from 16 to 18 nationwide. In February 2017, the Parliament adopted an amendment to the Penal Code that would toughen punishment against child marriage. Offenders face a minimum of five years in prison and may serve up to 10 years. They also face a fine of up to 1 million rupees ($9,547). Thus, it appears that IRP and the fundamentalist have been playing trick with the UN and global organizations strategically, as if the have been introducing the Bills, but, only the fundamentalist clerics have been stopping it in the name of Allah and Quaran, that is not questionable by any Muslim.

Mohammedan clerics declare that girls can get married by 9 years or getting puberty, whichever is earlier: According to the organization Girls Not Brides, over 21 percent of the girls in Pakistan enter into marriage before the age of 18. CII Chairman Mohammad Khan Sheerani reiterated in 2014 that girls can be married at age nine, so long as puberty is apparent, adding that attempts to revisit the issue are pointless and unnecessary. “Parliament cannot create legislation that is against the teachings of the Holy Quran or Sunnah,” Sheerani said in 2014, according to The Express Tribune. CII was created in 1962 with the express purpose of advising parliament on Islamic law. CII is also known for calling to make DNA evidence inadmissible in rape cases as recently as 2013. What CII wanted instead is to bring back the old practice of bringing in four witnesses to support rape claims. With increasing immigration, the practice of child marriage has also spread to the West, raising alarm especially in the United Kingdom. According to data from the Home Office’s Forced Marriage Unit, there were 1,485 cases of child marriage in 2012. Another government report also foundchild marriage is increasing around the world, with the rate expected to climb to 14 million child marriages a year before 2020 hits.

Law Minister Zahid Hamid  accused of for “blasphemy” and fatwas issued: Law Minister Zahid Hamid had been accused by clerics of committing blasphemy due to a change in the wording of an oath taken by parliamentarians in the South Asian country. The protesters, led by Rizvi and other scholars, perceived the change in wording as representing a softening of the state’s position against members of the Ahmadi sect, who are not permitted to identify themselves as Muslims in Pakistan. The oath was hastily amended back to its original wording, but protesters held the capital under siege for weeks, demanding that Hamid resign from the cabinet. According to the agreement signed on Monday, the government will also make public an internal inquiry into how the wording of the parliamentary oath was changed. The Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) political party, led by Rizvi, has also agreed not to issue any religious edicts [fatwas] against Hamid.  Blasphemy is a sensitive issue in Pakistan, and certain forms of it can carry the death sentence. Increasingly, those accused of blasphemy have also been subjected to violent attacks by mobs and charged protesters. Since 1990, at least 73 people have been killed over alleged blasphemy, according to an Al Jazeera tally. They include those accused of blasphemy, members of their families, lawyers who have defended them and judges.

Zahid Hamid, Law Minister resigned[9]: Pakistan’s federal law minister has resigned, acceding to a key demand made by thousands of protesters who have blocked a major highway into the Pakistani capital for weeks, the state radio broadcaster reported. An agreement has been signed that would see the demonstrators in Islamabad and other cities disperse, Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal told the Islamabad High Court during a hearing on 17-11-2017, Monday, ending a weeks-long standoff that threatened to escalate into countrywide violence. “On the assurance of the Chief of Army Staff, we are calling off the sit-in,” Muslim scholar and protest leader Khadim Hussain Rizvi told a crowd of around 2,500 demonstrators in Islamabad on Monday, AFP news agency reported. The agreement would also see all protesters who were arrested during the sit-in, which began on November 8, be released within three days[10]. The government will also take responsibility for paying for any damage caused to both public and private property during the protest. An inquiry will also be ordered into a government security crackdown on Saturday which saw thousands of riot police fire tear gas, rubber bullets and water cannon in an attempt to disperse the protesters. Demonstrators fought back with stones, sticks and metal rods, and were able to beat back the authorities. At least five people were killed and more than 217 – mostly members of the security forces – wounded in those clashes.

Serial rapist, habitual offender and inconsistent reporting of crimes: Warning to women in homes alone!

November 19, 2017

Serial rapist, habitual offender and inconsistent reporting of crimes: Warning to women in homes alone!

Techie-burglar raped many women-TOI- 18-11-2017

Techie-turned burglar confesses to rape[1]: As usual, the vernacular and local media presented various narratives about a habitual offender, in spite of their skill in reporting and dealing with different subjects. The City police who tracked and arrested a serial offender for his alleged involvement in several burglaries were in for a shock[2]. The 26-year-old man told investigators that apart from indulging in burglary and knife-point robbery, he had also raped several home-alone women at knife-point. A senior police officer confirmed to DC [Deccan Chronicle] that the suspect did confess about raping women[3]. However, police are checking the veracity of the claims and the process to identify and get statements from the supposed victims is underway, police sources said[4]. Police had already received a complaint from one of the victims. “He used to approach lone women in the pretext of seeking an address or asking for water and used to rob them”, a police officer said[5]. A graduate in Mathematics, he is also believed to have indulged in criminal activities in Krishnagiri too. However, in his confession to police, he claimed that he was a “MCA graduate”[6]. He was working in Bengaluru for a few months before he came to the City searching for employment two / three[7] years ago. Further investigations are on.

“I raped a woman in Guindy and not over 50 as projected by a section of the press”: A techie-turned burglar, who landed in the police net in Velachery on 15-11-2017, Wednesday has confessed to having raped a woman in Guindy, said police after corroborating a complaint given by the victim. Denying news reports in a section of the media that he was a serial rapist targeting lone women, the city police made it clear that preliminary investigation had revealed that he raped a woman in Guindy and not over 50 as projected by a section of the press[8].  “The news reports are contrary to the truth,” a senior police officer said. Last Monday, 13-11-2017, a woman complained to the All-Women Police Station, Guindy, alleging that she was raped by an unidentified person, who gained entry into her house while she was alone and robbed her of three sovereigns of gold jewellery. However, Tamil papers specifically mentioned that he raped 50 women, again reportedly based on his confessional statement given to the police. That he could confess differently, as could be noted from English and Tamil media proves that there is something wrong with the media and the police.

The rapist was caught accidentally on the road: On Thursday, 16-11-2017, a man named William lodged a complaint with the Velachery police stating that a youth had robbed him of his mobile phone and ₹8,500 at knife-point. When he chased him, the accused ran away but his voter identity card fell on the road. With this, the police identified Arivazhalagan who stayed at Maduvankarai near Guindy. He was brought to the police station and grilled. He admitted to having raped the woman who had complained to the All Women Police Station. The victim identified him. He was arrested on the same day, 16-11-2017. The accused, a native of Krishnagiri, was working with an IT firm in Bengaluru. He moved to Chennai in 2015. As he was jobless, he resorted to burglary, the police said[9]. He “was working with an IT firm in Bengaluru” implies that he must have possessed required qualifications, unless, he was engaged in some peon like work.

Modus operandi of the rapist: His modus operandi was to gain entry into the house of women staying alone under the guise of enquiring about an address or asking for water. Then, he would rob them at knife-point[10]. This is consistent with the Tamil news reports. In 2014, he was remanded for 15 days after robbing a mobile phone in Krishnagiri[11]. Again in 2015, he was sent to the Central prison in Chennai after he committed burglary at a house in Avadi[12]. All these clearly prove that he has been a hbitual offender, well-known to the police department, as these details are on the record. Arivazhalagan admitted that he committed burglaries in Velachery, Royala Nagar, West Mambalam, Guindy, Saidapet and Kotturpuram. The obscene videos recorded in his mobile phone was also being investigated, police said[13].

The irresponsible reporting of English National Dailies: Nowadays, the responsible press gives the news in different versions, particularly in giving facts and figures, thereby, indifferently helping the criminals and offenders, instead of helping the victims. Perhaps, the advocates appearing for the criminals could cite these divergent, inconsistent and conflicting reports in favour of his client and this would only violate all moral principles, ethics and law of the land.There have been many such reports appearing in “The Hindu” that helped even the terrorists involved in serial blasts and bombing in which many innocents lost their lives, affecting their families. On the other hand, “The Hindu” carried the reports, with the photographs of the wives and children of the terrorists, evidently to create sympathy in the minds of the readers, but, it never carried the pitiable conditions of the wives, children and relatives of the victiims. This type of secular partiality, communal bias and prejudiced reporting noted. Yet, it reports in this way.

Women t home subjected to rape-2

Colluding with criminals or helping the victims?: In fact, here, as the women have been the mostly affected losing their chastity, honour, jewels and other things, the media and the press should have reacted in constructive way to help them. It has been a practice that whenever, jewel theft complaint was lodged with the police, they may give a copy of FIR, but, the stolen jewels recovered, that would be distributed only among their known people, VIPs and others. The genuinely lost people are never taken care of. Most of them keep quite, as if it is their fate. Some even think that “stolen jewels” are inauspicious to be received and used. Any away, the police exploit all such sentiments and other factors, as they know the habitual jewel thieves by their technique of stealing. Thus, here, also,as he was arrested twice on the same account, definitely, the police know him. In his raping narratives, he reportedly confessed that he took the girls and women to “private lodges” where he raped them. This goes against the other version that re raped women at knife-point. In other words, the press or the police is trying to plant the point that the victims gave away their chastity “by consent”. This is very immoral and totally wrong precedence is created by them and it would affect the society and deteriorate the victims.

How the women at home should be cautious about these happenings: The following points have been generalized based on the practical occurrences and more exigencies could be added also:

  1. The women, who have been alone in their homes shoud be careful about these types of criminals. They should keep it mid the modus opearandi adopted anf adapted by the rapist criminals.
  2. They should avoid using social media like facebook, whatsup…etc., as they are not safe for the women and hence, they should not let others to know their cell no.
  3. They should dispose of the persons, just by talking behind the grills without opening the doors. When there is necessity that they should be allowed inside, then, there should be somebody in the house, preferably male members.
  4. They should be cautious about the Gas, water suppliers, paper boy and others.
  5. They shoukldalso be careful about they guys who come for repsring and servicing of electrical lines, pipe lines, AC etc.
  6. No unknown persondshould ne lt in on any account. Even womem, particularly coming carring babies should not be allowed.
  7. Denotation collectors of all sorts for temples, orphanages etc, should be avoided. As they come regularly and repeatedly, they should not be encouraged.
  8. One should be always careful with the persons, who come repeatedly or frequently on one or the other pretexts, because, as they become familiar, that would help them to watch and hatch crime.
  9. Thos who come asking for the servant maids, whether they are husbands, relatives and others need not be encourafed. They need not be allowed to sit and wait, on the pretext of meeting them.
  10. They have to be careful withe persons, who come under the guise of sales girls, boys etc., as they coukd be also potential criminals.

It is not that we should doubt and suspect all coming to our houses, but, as the days have been changing and the people do not care for any morality, ethics etc., we have to take precaution and be careful.

Didde Ebenezer, pastor sexploits women from 2015 onwards – Victims come out, complaint filed, but escaped, secular media, women activists and tolerant groups keep quite!

Pastor Didde Ebenezer, Tadepalligudem mandal

The sexual crimes of Christian clergy in India: In India, the sexploitation of Christian priests have been increasing, alarming and nauseating, but, the media has been callously silent and indifferent. All sorts of sex violations, in fact leading murders and other serious crimes, have been reported, but, only few booked, adjudicated and jailed, whereas, most of others have been roaming with their frocks of different colours.  About Ram Rahim, the media blared, though, he has been a secular sexploiter. Had he been Hindu, the situation be different. After him, now comes Didde Ebenezer from Andhra. He has been virtually raping women for the last two years. Though Telugu media and local people have exposed, he has been roaming unscathed. The influence, he has with church or politics is inexplicable and not known.

Pastor Didde Ebenezer, women commission chief

On Deepavali day, complaint lodged by AP Women’s Commission chairperson: Didde Ebenezer has been evidently notorious and the victims exposed him. Expressing concern over the way a pastor allegedly subjected young women to sexual exploitation, AP Women’s Commission chairperson Nannapaneni Rajakumari, during her visit to Jagannadhapuram village of Tadepalligudem mandal in West Godavari on 18-10-2017 [Wednesday], instructed the police to arrest him and rescue four women reportedly confined by him[1]. Several women narrated to Ms Rajakumari how they were victimised by pastor Didde Ebenezer under the guise of running a Church at Jagannadhapuram[2]. “He would start by asking us to do simple things like giving him a massage, and then move his way up to more unspeakable actions. He would say that we have to follow whatever he says, or else something evil would befall us, no matter how disgusting his demand is,” a victim told media persons. Another victim alleged that the pastor was organise ‘special prayers’ and make women stand in the nude, in candle light. They also claimed that four women were under confinement with the pastor at present. The locals also alleged that the pastor’s male relatives also indulged in acts with women in the village. In other words, mass sex exploitation has been going in the name of god, church and divine activities.

Since 2015, Didde Ebenezer has been raping women: The victims informed the chairperson that the alleged misbehaviour of the pastor with young women was exposed in 2015 and a police case was booked. He has been exploiting women assuring them to make them to talk with God directly. However, for such divine exigency, certain rituals had to be followed, he insisted and explained to convince them. The poor women fell to his assurance and desire to talk with God agreed to be with him. Initially, he used to request favours like messaging his legs, hands, head and so on. Then, he used remove his shirt and asked them to message his back and front. In this way, indirectly, he induced them to develop instinct to have sex with him. Thus, he has been exploiting women regularly. In the house, where he was reportedly carried on such activities, used “Nirodh” packets were also found. Even after complaining to police, the women refused to return with parents. For this, one doctor explained that the women were mesmerized through some acts, so that they wanted to be with him only[3]. Moreover, they might have been drugged also, though he could not tell with confirmation, as such condition could be determined, only after testing. However, Ebenezer has been exploiting the women psychologically and physically.

Nude prayers conducted with candle lit: The police made enquiries at the houses of the victims and others. According to the victims, the pastor was exposed in 2015 and a police case was booked. The man, however, reportedly managed to get the case struck off in a local court with his influence, they alleged. In one case, he promised to marry a victim, but later refused. He tried to settle with her in a different manner. This was revealed by her narration to TV9 channel[4]. Later, he shifted his accommodation to Madhuru village to avoid trouble at Jagannadhapuram village. This is also evidently to avoid the legal implications of jurisdiction and all. The victims said that the pastor was targeting good looking young women and was even organising candle-lit prayers with the women in the nude[5]. The Tamil media also carried the story[6]. Obviously, it has been picked up from Deccan Herald[7]. Though, the media has not explained the significance of “nude worship”, it is detailed below in the Chriatian context.  They informed her that four women were under confinement with the pastor at present.

Victims explained how they were sexploited: Shocked at the ordeal of the women victims, Ms Rajakumari called up West Godavari SP M. Ravi Prakash and instructed him to arrest the pastor and get the four women released and handed over to the Women’s Commission. “We will immediately take him into custody, and free the women who are allegedly under confinement. We all had tears in our eyes when we heard the victims speak. This is not a normal incident. He has played with people’s life in a holy place like a church. We will prosecute him,” Rajakumari told locals, after the public meeting[8]. West Godavari Joint Collector said[9], “The allegations are shocking. We will ensure that he loses the title of ‘pastor’ and take strict action against him. We will find all the people responsible for the incident and assure action against all of them.” Later, she assured the women that she would fight on the issue until all the victims get justice. She said that as Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu was on a foreign tour, she would take it up to his notice to take stern action against the erring pastor after his return to the state.

Why Andhra infested with Christian sexploitation?: Meanwhile, a group of supporters of the pastor raised slogans in his favour claiming that he is a good person. They refuted the charges against him as fabricated. Using the church as his shield Andhra Pradesh pastor Didde Ebenezer committed a lot of crimes. Chief among them being sexually exploiting young girls and women of his parish, another newspaper pointed out[10]. It added that[11]Earlier in September, there was another case of pastor abuse. The Renigunta rural police arrested Pastor Panneer Selvam, 54, for abusing a  minor near his house and allegedly forced himself on her.” That is why Andhra has been infested with the Christian sexploitation for many years has to be probed. Coming to Ebenezer, He does much publicity for himself and claims that[12] “he cares for HIV/AIDS through the social media Team members: Pastor.D.Ebenezer Didde, somebody”! So none knows that “nobody”. Evidently, he must have been wealthy enough to cover up everything and everybody to escape from the complaints and court proceedings.

Nude worship allowed in Christianity - Mail online

Why Nude worship in Church and how it is allowed?: In 21st century, one should ask as to how the nude worship is allowed in church and the Christians approve it. It is evident that it is allowed in USA under the guise of theology. Pastor Allen Parker, the leader of White Tail Chapel in the town of Southampton, said he came to the decision to allow naked worship after concluding the clothing requirements of other churches were overly ‘pretentious’, and decided his own flock should be free to forgo such materialism if they desire[13]. He believes he is in good company too, claiming many of the most important moments in the Bible happened while the protagonists were nude, including Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection[14]. Speaking to CNN, Parker said: ‘When he [Jesus] was born he was naked, when he was crucified he was naked and when he arose he left his clothes in the tomb and he was naked.’ ‘If God made us that way, how can that be wrong?’ he added.

Nude worship allowed in Christianity - theology

Nudity started from Genesis and hence Christians can indulge in nude worship: Parker is believed to have drawn at least some of his opinions on nudity from the book of Genesis, in which Adam and Eve were originally described as ‘both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed’. It was only after sinfully eating forbidden fruit from the Tree of Knowledge that Adam and Even are said to have seen their nudity as shameful, at which point they sowed fig leaves into loincloths. Although the church allows worshipers to attend services fully naked, many have decided they would rather continue to attend fully clothed, particuarly when in mid-winter, while others opt to just reveal their breasts or genitals. The idea is that nudity is ‘the great equaliser’, reminding all those gathered in the church that they are simple human beings and that, beneath any personal wealth or glamorous outward appearance, they are all more of less the same beneath the clothing. ‘There’s not a feeling that you have to be better than one another, physically. We’re humans, we have scars, we have what we have. It’s learning to love and accept that,’ Parker says.

Pastor Didde Ebenezer, Tadepalligudem mandal- Police enquiry

Christian Nude worship or mass sex exploitation or group sex – what has been going on?: But, how in India it is allowed is a question. In Karnataka, when women were practicing exclusively such worship without any controversy, the modernized persons made it controversy and banned it[15]. Here, ironically, the Christians not only tacitly accepting, but also justifying indirectly However, the sexploitation of many women nearly 20 as reported by the Telugu media by Ebenezer has been monstrous, gruesome and grotesque and cannot be allowed on any account. Strangely, all the liberals and torch bearers who give sermon on toleration and all are keeping quite. None could imagine that they do not read this news, as this has been going on for three years.

[15]The Hindu,  Nude worship banned, By Our Special Correspondent, Wednesday, Mar 05, 2003

SHIMOGA March 4. The Deputy Commissioner and District Magistrate, Tushar Girinath, has imposed ban orders in connection with the annual jatra of Renukamba at Chandragutti in Sorab taluk. The jatra is scheduled to be held from March 9 to 14. The ban has been imposed to prevent “bettale seve” (worship in the nude). The order bans the congregation of people during the jatra within a radius of 5 km. of the temple under the provisions of the Section 35 of the Karnataka Police Act. Mr. Girinath has allowed the performance of rites during the jatra. He has passed an order banning sale of liquor during the jatra time in a radius of 5 km. of the temple. The Chandragutti jatra was marred in 1986 when enthusiastic activists tried to stop the devotees from worshipping in the nude. The angry devotees retaliated. In the melee, volunteers and police personnel were attacked and paraded naked.
