Justice For Kajal – A Dalit Woman | Zainab Alert Bill Passed in Pakistan

Hello friends, watch my latest reaction on the Justice For Kajal, Gujarat: ‘Missing’ Dalit woman found hanging from a tree in Modasa. Also, The Pakistan National Assembly on Friday approved the Zainab Alert, Recovery and Response Bill, 2019, exactly two years after the body of nine-year-old Zainab Ansari, a rape-murder victim, was found in Kasur in 2018. The body of a 20-year-old Dalit woman, who reportedly went missing on January 1, was found hanging from a tree in a village of Modasa taluka in Aravalli district on Sunday. Modasa Rural police have registered a case of accidental death and investigations are underway. A family member of the deceased said that the girl, a graduate, had a beauty parlour. “She left home on January 1. After she didn’t return home the next day, her father had given a complaint to Modasa Town police where he had named a suspect for the mysterious disappearance of his daughter. However, (Modasa Town) the police did not register an offence and told the father that the case falls under the jurisdiction of Modasa Rural police. On Sunday morning, the woman’s body was found hanging from a tree in the neighbouring village,” said the family member. The person also alleged that the Modasa Town police did not register the case as the suspect and the police inspector are from the same community. “We don’t know if she was kidnapped. But it is a fact that her body was found hanging from a tree,” the relative said. Also: The bill was presented by Human Rights Minister Shireen Mazari in June last year. Zainab’s rape and murder in 2018 had sparked outrage and protests across the country after she was found dead in a trash heap in Kasur on January 9. Her case was the twelfth such incident to occur within a 10 kilometre radius in the city over a 12-month period. The heinous nature of the crime had seen immediate riots break out in Kasur — in which two people were killed — while #JusticeforZainab became a rallying cry for an end to violence against children. In August 2019, a parliamentary committee deferred the passage of Zainab Alert Bill with directions to the government to rationalise the “extreme” punishment proposed for sexual assault against children. All members of the committee, except a few, had opposed rigorous imprisonment until death for sexual assault of children. Others had said that rigorous imprisonment with a death sentence was a fitting punishment for individuals sexually assaulting minor children. Under the bill passed on Friday, the maximum sentence handed down to perpetrators of child sexual abuse will be life imprisonment with a fine of Rs1 million while the minimum sentence will be 10 years. Further, a helpline will also be established to report missing children while an agency, for issuing an alert for missing children, will also be set up. The bill also proposes taking action against police officials who cause unnecessary delay in investigating such cases, adding that those who fail to respond to the alert within two hours may also face action.
