Three women paraded naked on busy streets of Phol-nagar in Lahore, for alleged prostitution. It is another shameful act carried out in Punjab; world has not yet forgotten famous Mukhtara Mai case.
BBC report says, police reached on the spot, arrested three naked women and charged them for prostitution. Police Officer informed BBC that these women are in lock up but they have been provided dresses to cover their bodies.
BBC future mentions that parading women in public is an extreme criminal offense and penalty is death or capital punishment.
One of the witness Mohd Bota, informed BBC that three women were dragged on Multan Road, stripped off and forced them to accept alleged prostitution in front of a video camera.
Story further reveals, a mob attacked house of Ms Shahnaz alias Serajo, she wasn’t there but mob found three women. Crowd entered the house, destroyed and looted everything.
Police did not charge hooligans who attacked the house and looted.
I am so sad that I am living in such an ugly society, dominated by irrational fanatic men who impose their morality only on poor women. I have never come across, any of men who goes to these prostitutes ever paraded naked or their house ever destroyed.
It is simply an allegation; if extremist mob has the authority to do the justice then why do we need courts and legal system. Let these fanatics interpret or justify law and parade women naked, beat, loot or kill them !!
I just want to ask a simple question to majority of Pakistani men, why the hell their morality revolves around women. Why the hell, women are only considered an object of sin? Let me share, I know many men who indulge into extra marital affairs, when it comes to their women, they lose their temper, why double standards, why this hypocrisy????
Unlucky are the ones, who are born women in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan!!!!
I wish our men understand the message of religion, all religions in the world respect the sanctity of women, neither Islam or anyother religion accepts such barbaric behavior nor a civilized society.
