Justice for Asifa Bano
0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!
8 year old girl (Asifa) got gang-raped and brutally murdered in Jammu, India by 6 six people including 2 police man. But all those crimnals are supported by BJP government. Please help to get justice!!!
"***Detail from a newspaper: She was an 8-year-old girl who, while grazing her horses in a meadow in northern India in January, followed a man into the forest. Days later, Asifa Bano’s small, lifeless body was recovered there.
Police say that Asifa was given sedatives and, for three days, raped several times by different men. Asifa's strangled body was eventually found Jan. 17. Police say she would have been killed sooner had one man not insisted on waiting so that he could rape her a final time.
To ensure she was dead, Asifa’s killers hit her twice on the head with a stone, according to charging documents filed by police in the state of Jammu and Kashmir.
The eight men accused in connection to the rape and murder are Hindu. Asifa was a Muslim nomad, part of the Bakarwal tribe. Asifa’s father, Mohammad Yusuf Pujwala, told the New York Times that he believes his daughter was killed by the Hindu men for the sole purpose of driving her people away. To add to the volatility of Asifa’s case, police say she was killed in a Hindu temple, and that the temple’s custodian plotted her death as a way to torment the Bakarwals.***"
Crime: Premeditated rape and murder of an 8 year old child, from the Kashmir region (child belongs to a Pahari nomadic Muslim tribe)
Abducted, raped and murdered in a Hindu temple by the temple priest and others in India.
Reason: To terrorise the tribe and to grab land.
Jammu Bar Council of India (Jammu region) and other savarna Hindus including Hindu women came out in support of the rapists, even preventing to file a charge sheet.
Demanding justice for Asifa is not about any religion or about a political party. It is about a kid getting raped and government (in this case BJP party) who is not providing any support to the victim instead covering up criminals.
We need justice for her.
