Muzammil Bibi
The continual disregard and abuse of Pakistani women continues. But why?

A 20 year old Pakistani woman, Muzammil Bibi has been gang raped and hung from a tree, in a chilling case that resembles the case of two teenage Indian women who were similarly last month gang raped and hung on a tree.

Pakistani police have told Muzammil Bibi was attacked by three men in a field in the impoverished Layyah area of densely populated Punjab province.

The woman’s boyfriend of six months, named by police as Muhammad Saqib, confessed to the rape and murder and has been taken into custody, police said.

Saqib admitted he tried to force the woman — the daughter of blind parents — to have sex with two of his friends, according to police. When she refused, investigators said the pair argued.

The woman, whom he allegedly had promised to marry, was found hanging from a tree the next morning.

Told Senior officer Sadaqat Ali Chohan: ‘This is the first time in my 22 years of service in the police that I have seen such a case, where a girl was raped in this way and found hanging from a tree.

‘We have heard of such cases in India but never in Pakistan. The girl’s clothes were torn. We took her down and moved her to hospital. 

‘Her body had signs of resistance. We have arrested three individuals who have confessed to the crime.’

According to police, the 20-year-old resisted the rape and her attackers strangled her.

Police said her parents spent all night looking for her and found her body hanging the next morning.

In a similar crime which took place in May, two teenage cousins were found hanging from a tree after being raped in the north of India.

Three men have been arrested over the killings. Two policemen were held on suspicion of trying to cover up the crime.

Shortly after the incident, a lawmaker from Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi‘s ruling party described rape as a social crime, saying ‘sometimes it’s right, sometimes it’s wrong.’

Similarly the head of Uttar Pradesh state’s governing party, the regionally prominent Samajwadi Party, had told an election rally that the party was opposed to the law calling for gang rapists to be executed.

‘Boys will be boys,‘ Mulayam Singh Yadav said. ‘They make crimes mistakes.’

The controversial remarks came as political leaders of Uttar Pradesh – the state where the two cousins aged 12 and 14 were raped and hanged – faced criticism for failing to visit the scene.

Another regional politician from Modi’s party, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), said the crime of rape could only be considered to have been committed if it is reported to police.

19 years old was also found dead hanging from a tree in India

In yet another incident earlier this month, another woman, who was just 19 years old was also found dead hanging from a tree in India – becoming the fourth woman from the same state to die in this way.

The woman had gone missing from her house in Rajpura village in Uttar Pradesh before family members said they went to report the matter to police in nearby Thakurdwara.

Her body was then discovered outside a village in Moradabad district, around three hours from Delhi, police said. Her family say she was raped.

Despite a rape being reported in India every 21 minutes on average, law enforcement failures mean that such crimes are often not reported.

The cases have triggered a debate throughout the region about violence against women.

The Asian Center for Human Rights published a report last year revealing that 48,338 child rape cases were recorded in India from 2001 to 2011. The annual number of reported cases rose 336% over that period.

Activists say that number is low because of an entrenched culture of tolerance for sexual violence, which leads many cases to go unreported.

Women are often pressed by family or police to stay quiet about sexual assault, experts say, and those who do report cases are often subjected to public ridicule or social stigma.
