Over a month after a Muslim landlord allegedly paraded three Christian women naked in Pakistan’s Punjab province,a court here has finally taken notice of the matter and directed a judge to investigate the incident. The Lahore High Court yesterday ordered the district and sessions judge,Kasur,to probe the matter and submit a report within two weeks.
The three Christian women were allegedly brutally beaten and then paraded naked by armed men of Muhammad Munir,a local landlord said to be having the backing of the ruling PML-N party,in Pattoki area of Kasur district,some 50 kilometres from here. The incident took place in the first week of last month. The matter came to light a few days after the Asian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) issued a news release to the media.
According to the victim family’s head Sadiq Masih,the male members of his family had gone out on their jobs when the attackers led by Munir entered his house. Munir demanded Masih to produce his sons who earlier had a brawl with him over a cattle issue. Failing to find them there,the attackers took the wives of Masih’s three sons with them. Munir and his armed men first disrobed the women and then forcibly paraded them naked in the streets.
