‘The Rapist Is You’: Aurat Marchers Release Urdu Version of the Chilean Anti-Rape Anthem

Feb 4, 2020

The organisers of annually-held Aurat March have released the Urdu version of the Chilean protest song A Rapist in Your Path that talks about rape culture and victim-shaming.

A Rapist in Your Path is based on the work of Argentinian theorist Rita Segato, who debates that sexual violence is a political problem, not a moral one. The anthem has been performed in Latin America, the United States and Europe.

According to a statement by the Aurat March, the song condemns the judicial system’s failure to protect women and their rights and raises awareness about the culture of violence in society. It says this culture is growing, with acts of violence being normalized and women being shamed and often blamed after reporting such acts.

The lyrics accuse the institutions – police, judiciary and political power structures – of upholding “systematic violations” of women’s rights.

“The rapist is you. It’s the cops. The judges. The state. The president. The law. The feudal. The clerics”.

The organisers have also made some additions to the original lyrics to include feudal and clerics in the song. Another part of the song describes the ways how women are blamed for falling victim to sexual violence.

“And it’s not my fault, nor where I was, nor what I wore,” it says, adding: “The rapist is you”.



Pune Based Muslim Woman Seeks Right to Offer Namaz in Mosques 5 Times A Day

Feb 4, 2020

NEW DELHI: Discounting the All India Muslim Personal Law Board's ambivalent stand which appeared to support entry of women into mosques, a Pune-based Muslim couple asked the Supreme Court on Monday to direct mosque managements to allow women to offer Namaz five times a day in Masjids after making provision for separate enclosures.

The AIMPLB had told the SC last week, "A Muslim woman is free to enter Masjid for prayers. It is her option to exercise her right to avail such facilities as available for prayers in masjid. AIMPLB does not want to comment on any contrary religious opinion on this issue."

Refusing to join issue with others in the community who believe Muslim women should not enter mosques, the AIMPLB had said, "Islam has not made it obligatory on Muslim women to join congregational prayers nor is it obligatory for women to offer Friday namaz in congregation though it is so for Muslim men." But the petitioners — Yasmeen Zuber Ahmad Peerzade and her husband Zuber Ahmad Nazeer Ahmad Peerzade from Pune — said in an affidavit that they had written to the president and trustees of Mohammadiya Jama Masjid, Jamatul Muslimeen, Bopodi, Pune, seeking permission to enter the mosque and offer namaz five times daily as well as other namaz like 'Juma namaz', 'taravih namaz' and 'Eid namaz'.

They also said the mosque management should provide "facilities for offering of namaz while being allowed to maintain their purdah, that is in a segregated place screened from men".

Women with Disabilities Urge for Equal Rights in All Sectors

February 4, 2020

Islamabad:Women with Disabilities Monday urged the authorities concerned to play an active role in providing equal rights in health care, education, vocational training, employment and income generation opportunities.

Women with Disabilities (WWD) are one of the most marginalised groups in society. Sidra Batool disable women told “Women with disabilities face significantly more difficulties in both public and private sphere.”

She said that they face challenges in attaining education, health, housing , vocational training and employment". They also experience inequality in hiring, promotion rates and pay for equal work, she further said.

She suggested the WPC to make a working group to address issues faced by women with disabilities. Secretary Women’s Parliamentary Caucus Munaza Hassan assured complete support of Women Parliamentary Caucus (WPC) for women with disabilities and said that women with disabilities will be part of all WPC initiatives in future.

She said that 10 to 15 per cent people in Pakistan were disabled and half of them were women. She said that 80 per cent of the women with disabilities live in rural areas. They were living in the most vulnerable conditions, which makes everyday living a challenge in itself.

They were excluded from the mainstream of education, health and development and were perceived as a loss of productive potential and a drain on family resources. She said that Pakistani women with disabilities have played a lead role in bringing the agenda of WDDs in Sustainable Development Goals.



Afghan Rights Group Investigating Video of Woman Being Stoned To Death

February 03, 2020

By Frud Bezhan

Afghanistan’s Independent Human Rights Commission (AIHRC) says it is investigating video footage that shows an Afghan woman being stoned to death.

The two-minute clip shows a group of men throwing rocks at a covered woman who is lying in a hole that has been dug in the ground. A crowd of onlookers can be heard shouting “Hit her!” and "Allahu Akbar!”

The woman's cries and screams can be heard.

The AIHRC told RFE/RL that it is trying to discover exactly when and where the video was shot, and why the woman was killed.

The Taliban claims the footage is from the same October 2015 stoning that RFE/RL previously obtained footage of -- a case in which a 19-year-old woman in the central province of Ghor was killed for alleged adultery.

The Taliban also said the stoning had been carried out by a pro-government militia commander.

But local officials blamed Taliban militants for the 2015 execution. The victim, identified as Rokhshana, had been accused of having premarital sex with her fiance. The incident took place in the village of Ghalmin on the outskirts of Firoz Koh, the provincial capital.

But Afghan journalists and activists say the new footage, which was first uploaded on social media on January 30, documents a more recent stoning in the Taywara district of Ghor Province.

Ghor, a mountainous and remote province in Afghanistan’s central highlands, is one of the most impoverished and unstable areas of the country. The provincial government's power extends little beyond Firoz Koh.

The Taliban and dozens of illegal, armed groups run by former warlords and militia leaders are active in Ghor -- a key transit route for shipments through Afghanistan of weapons and opium.

'Atrocious Acts'

The new footage prompted outrage from Afghan social-media users. Many have blamed the Taliban.

The Taliban is locked in peace negotiations with the United States and has held talks with Afghan politicians about a political solution to end Afghanistan’s 18-year-old war.

The peace talks have provoked controversy among some Afghans who view the Taliban as terrorists who should not be negotiated with.

"I am utterly shocked and saddened after I watched a video on Twitter in which a group of Taliban is stoning an innocent woman," Sediq Sediqqi, the spokesman for President Ashraf Ghani, wrote on Twitter on February 1. "Taliban’s cruelty and atrocity under the name of Islam is a crime against humanity."

In response, the Taliban said on Twitter that the punishment of stoning for adultery is an “Islamic ruling that cannot be rejected by any Muslim.”

But the Taliban said it was not involved. It claimed the recently uploaded video showed a stoning carried out in 2015 by Sa’eedi Yar, the commander of a pro-government militia.

The Taliban’s claim failed to quell a flood of condemnation directed at the militant group.

"The Taliban stoned this woman a few days ago in Ghor Province," Laila Haidari, an Afghan activist, posted on Twitter on February 1. "But where in the world does a group claiming to build a state commit such atrocious acts?"

"A testament that the Taliban, their fragile masculinity, barbarism & inhumane ideology, has not changed," Afghan rights activist Farangies Shah tweeted on February 1. "Yet the US continues to flirt with the idea of negotiating power with them -- under the guise of peace."

“Cultural poverty and extremism are worse than the catastrophe of explosions and suicide attacks,” Afghan women’s rights activist Fatima Khan tweeted on January 31.

Capital Punishment

While it is unclear why the woman in the video was punished, unmarried girls in Afghanistan are often restricted to their homes and banned from having contact with men outside of their immediate families.

Brutal punishments often await Afghan women and girls who break social norms.

Death by stoning for convicted adulterers is banned under Afghan law, although offenders face long prison terms for adultery. The penal code, originating in 1976, makes no provision for the use of stoning.

Afghanistan's constitution prescribes that "no law can be contrary to the beliefs and provisions of the sacred religion of Islam" and sometimes appears at odds with more liberal and democratic elements within it.

Capital punishment was widely practiced by the Taliban regime that ruled much of the country from 1996-2001, when convicted adulterers were routinely shot or stoned in executions conducted in front of large crowds.

In rural areas, where Taliban militants exert considerable influence, some Afghans still turn to Taliban tribunals to settle disputes because many view government bodies as corrupt or unreliable.

The Taliban employs strict interpretations of Shari'a law, which prescribes punishments such as stoning and executions.

In many Taliban-controlled areas, men or women found guilty of having a relationship outside of marriage or an extramarital affair are either sentenced to death or publicly flogged.

Afghan officials often blame the Taliban for such punishments.



Egypt Arrests 32 Women From Prominent North Sinai Tribe

February 3, 2020

Thirty-two women from the Fawakhira tribe in North Sinai have been arrested, according to Al Jazeera Arabic.

Following the announcement of US President Donald Trump’s peace plan last week, the threat level in Sinai has been raised to the highest point. Security forces say they are pre-empting developments in the Gaza Strip.

Under the war on terror, authorities have been carrying out systematic human rights abuses against the local population in Sinai, including extrajudicial killings, land displacement and the demolition of homes.

Several observers have said Egypt is preparing the peninsula for Trump’s so-called deal of the century, under which the North African state will receive $9 billion of investment.

In anticipation of resistance, Egypt has cracked down on anyone opposing the peace plan, including the son of the former acting Prime Minister Nabil Shaath and his colleague Mohamed El-Massry.

Egypt’s intelligence agency has tried to control the narrative and warned newspaper editors not to refer to the US peace proposal as the “deal of the century” but as the “peace plan”.

It also instructed editors not to focus on the religious or national elements of the plan and to emphasise the pivotal role of Egypt on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Saudi Arabia: 46% Women among 17,000 People Applied To Register As Conciliators

February 3rd, 2020

The Ministry of Justice on Sunday announced that as many as 17,000 people have applied to register as conciliators at the Reconciliation Center under the ministry. Around 7,800 of those registered within the last 20 days are women, accounting for 46 percent of the total applicants.

This comes after the Ministry of Justice, represented by the Conciliation Center, has allowed men and women to register as conciliators. It allowed individuals of both genders or from the profit and nonprofit sectors to register as conciliators. They can practice conciliation out of courts or within the courtrooms.

The conciliation minutes they issue will become executive documents once electronic approval was accorded by the Conciliation Center at the ministry. The ministry stated that the list of applicants included 278 university professors, 29 doctors, 344 accountants, 1,155 lawyers, 2,380 teachers, 211 engineers, and more than 14,600 applicants with a bachelor’s degree, while 1,785 applicants hold a master’s degree, and 417 applicants hold a doctorate.

The ministry confirmed that the applicants have pledged their commitment to more than 220,000 voluntary reconciliation sessions, as applicants are required to submit a minimum of 10 sessions within a year.

The ministry indicated that the application phase will be followed by the completion of registration through a capacity test and passing courses and personal interviews. “The registered conciliator can involve in conciliation in several existing disputes between the two parties to one conflict, even if the conciliator’s area of specialization differs, and the resolution procedures will be fully digitized.

They begin with submitting an application for beginning a conciliation process, then to submit a report whether it has been a success or failure, so that the minutes for the reconciliation sessions can be adopted in the court’s minutes via a remote digital system.”

The Ministry of Justice has given the registered conciliator the option to work as independent conciliator or in an office or both. He has the choice to charge a fee for providing his mediation services or provide his services for free. He can specify the number of free conciliation sessions per year, in return for registration at the center.

The specialization fields include family, financial, criminal, traffic, real estate, commercial and intellectual property rights. Minister of Justice and Chairman of the Supreme Judicial Council Sheikh Walid Al-Samaani approved the new work rules that govern the procedures at the reconciliation offices as part of the initiative to activate the reconciliation system.
