DNA test of entire staff of Qaid’s Mazaar to be carried out!

On the night of March 15th last month, an 18 year old woman who was visiting our beloved Qaids Mazaar from a rural area with her family was abducted from the grounds of the Mazaar.

She was then subjected to gang rape by unknown assailants and was left in an awful state at the gate of Qaid’s Mazaar in the wee hours of the morning on 17th March.

At first her husband and family ran from pillar to post to get an FIR registered which the police was not willing to grant on this heinous crime. However when the media caught hold of this story and it ran on many news channels the police registered an F.I.R and arrested the assistant head of security of Qaid’s Mazaar on March 20th. His D.N.A proved he was one of the rapists, on his interrogation two more men from the security force were arrested and proven guilty by their D.N.A. There are however still two suspects at large and the senate commitee on housing works has recommended that the entire workforce of the Mazaar should be D.N.A tested to find them.

It chills me to the bone as to how many security officers were actually involved in this crime. 3 being already identified and two left makes 5. What have we succumbed to? when the guardians of our beloved Qaid’s tomb resort to such disgusting behavior to satisfy their inner demons.

    surprisingly/shockingly even local police had no permission to enter Mazaar complex

    Well all said I believe some justice is being done, its important to show the people that justice does happen as I fear that having seen the 3 robbers being burnt alive which was shocking, if left unchecked we might all end up watching citizens take it upon themselves to ensure ‘their form of justice’ which could easily be misused to a point of no return

    I hope all five are caught and publicly sentenced with no concessions whatsoever.

    Someone correct me if I am wrong – If I am not mistaken isn’t the Quaid Mazar security under yearly deputation of some Army units control or have private security guards / police taking care of the Guard of Honor

    Waste of tax payers money to test 250 persons … Why can’t police torture 3 culprits in a classical way to find remaining two ….

    a) Although it’s a good step that all of the Quaid(s) Mausoleum’s staff will have to get a DNA check but the point is that this should have been done long before – there(s) a major problem with the Police – specially her investigating cell.

    b) I see a major problem in police’s investigation department – no one is professional enough to coup with the scene of crime and most often the police investigators loose vital evidences at the scene of crime. Now there’s talk of handing investigation branch to DPO(s) which is mind boggling – what good would it do? Police should be concentrating of opening up a different investigation unit with trained officers who could do chemical, post mortem, analytical work under one roof for better results.

    c) Quaid(s) Mausoleum’s internal security is the duty of ‘Ministry of Defense’ and external to the law-enforcement authorities.

    On the new ‘burning of bandits phenomena’

    d) It all reminds me of a bollywood flick ‘ganga-jal’ – when people strike back. Although on principle the burning of bandit’s phenomena is ‘barbarian’ and takes us back to the time of dark ages of mass public burning of witches and criminals – at a same time it give us an impression of the height of frustration of our people.

    A quick summary of the state of affairs would be:

    i) people caught the bandits
    ii) hardly 30-40 people would have been active in actually beating the bandits – each bone of there body crushed one by one
    iii) out of hundreds of people – one person might venture into a thought of ‘burning’ them – he would have swiftly acted upon his idea without thinking upon the consequences
    iv) now three people would have joined the clan in pouring petrol on the bandits
    v) the person now torches them
    vi) people would have ‘whistled’ , clapped on instant justice. Entertainment for the entertainment starved people….
    vii) Bandits while there body’s temperature would have been 600 degrees c – will be ‘cursing themselves’ NOT FOR COMMITTING THE CRIME BUT FOR BEING THERE AT A WRONG PLACE AT A WRONG TIME.

    Tells a lot about our society…..

    hmm Alam the atheist who openly glorifies terrorists is back with his retarded ideas

  10. shoaib on May 18th, 2008 @ 6:10 pm

    too bad of an idea one can give. Shame on that. How can you think like this. You are speaking the language of non resident karachi. Karachi is the city of Quaid.

    Whatever steps are being taken to bring the culprits to justice is good. It is a positive sign that this case is still alive. However people would like to see the justice to be served and the criminals get punished according to the law. All the jokers on KMB should not let this case to die at no cost. Since the crime took place in Karachi and the person was just a visitor to the city our pride and prestige is at stake to get this case resolved. Karachi is not a land of Waderas and Jagirdaars where cases of rapes go unheard and unnoticed.

    Apart from the subject, our government at National level should have DNA Forensics Database. After that is done, each persons DNA should get attached to his/her National ID card. It will help in resolving most of the crimes. That database should be shared with all law enforcement agencies so crime investigation units collect DNA samples from the crime scene and run matches in the database to identify a possible suspect. It is easier said than done but it can be achieved with well-planned execution.

    Side Note: Stupid d0ct0r’s DNA should be match for every crime!!

    @mughniraza sahab,
    most of what you said is ‘right’ but I had worked on this subject of a DNA Database and it’s already in place – although your suggestions of getting everyones DNA for the record would turn this state – even if it’s not a ‘police state’. A bad idea…!!!!

  13. Tariq Khanani (tariqkhanani) on May 19th, 2008 @ 10:50 am

    DNA database hmm
    this could disclose many hidden blood relations …… :p kidding

    waisay they could have started from passport i guess, right when we were placing thumbs on biometric device @ passport office, they could have taken blood sample….just like the movie sixth day

  14. mughniraza on May 19th, 2008 @ 2:50 pm

    Barrister Shahab,

    I like and respect your unbiased comments and opinions on KMB. I don’t know if would agree with me or not but a police state is better than a FAILED STATE. We have a divided country on the basis of religious boundaries, sectarian boundaries, ethnical boundaries and social status boundaries. Justice needs to be served to create an equal opportunity society for across the boundaries to have a united country.

    Therefore, you need superior judicial and law enforcement system to have JUST society. DNA forensic database will be one of its components to create a JUST society.

    *Karachi is not a land of Waderas and Jagirdaars where cases of rapes go unheard and unnoticed.


    haai’n, jeee, didn’t some well known PPP woman (My hatered for Z.A. Bhutto and his aal-aulad is besides the point here) got raped in Karachi by a bhateeja or bhaanjaa of a third class sirkari baaboo, Perseident Ghulam Ishaq Khan, and then ended up becoming minister (of education, no less) in Sindh?
    Therefore, last thing we need on KMB is some jazbati taqreer like Karachi is not a land of blah blah blah.

    "What have we succumbed to? when the guardians of our beloved Qaid’s tomb resort to such disgusting behavior to satisfy their inner demons."

    There is an almost poetic irony in this horrible incident. The quardians of our beloved Quaid’s country have also been gang raping it’s citizens for the last 70 years!
