Why this petition matters

Started by Nadia Rashid

On the 29th of September 2016 my 2-year- old daughter Insiya was violently kidnapped from Amsterdam (European Union) and smuggled to Mumbai, India. Without her Dutch passport. Insiya is a Dutch citizen and holds only the Dutch nationality and passport.

On the day of the kidnap three men, professional kidnappers, barged into my home in my absence and brutally took Insiya while my mother was babysitting.
The Dutch Police was alarmed right after the kidnap and they issued an immediate AMBER Alert for her.

In an instant it became clear that Shehzad Hemani, my ex-husband, is the mastermind behind the violent kidnap. For many years I had been trapped in an emotional and physical abusive marriage with him. In 2015 I finally gathered my courage to file for divorce and put an end to his abuse. But even after filing for divorce it just didn’t stop; it became worse and he threatened to kill me multiple times. He placed 6 GPS trackers under my car, hired people to follow me and kept threatening to kidnap my daughter. That is why the Dutch Court decided to give Insiya’s custody to me.

An official Interpol Arrest Warrant has been issued for Shehzad Hemani.
The Dutch and European authorities question how the kidnapper could escape and cross multiple borders. This is very concerning.

I haven’t talked to my daughter since she has been kidnapped. Despite my countless efforts, the kidnapper will not let me talk to my daughter. Together with the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Dutch Government we are trying our utmost best to get Insiya back. Every morning until night I am working to get her back. I am trying everything. I will not stop until I can hold my daughter in my arms again.
I have reached out to the Indian Ministry of External Affairs multiple times, but so far I haven’t got any response.
Ever since Insiya was born I have been the only one taking care of her. I will not stop until I get justice, because it is Insiya’s fundamental right to be with her mother. Insiya is illegal in India. Insiya is taken hostage and gravely traumatized. For her wellbeing and safety Insiya needs to be back with her mother!

The purpose of this petition is to reach out to the authorities of the Indian Government, especially the Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj. So that she can collaborate with the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs to return Insiya back to The Netherlands.

I keep faith, but I can’t do it without your help. So please support and sign this Petition. We really need both governments to collaborate and take action.

SIGN NOW and save an innocent child!

Your support makes a huge difference in my life.

Thank you so much,
