This is the end of justice given to a woman: Bilkis Bano
Bilkis Bano said with emotion that when I heard that 11 criminals who destroyed my family and my life and took away my 3-year-old daughter, were free today, I was completely stunned. I’m still shocked. All I can say today is: how can justice for a woman end like this? I had faith in the highest courts of my country. I trusted the system and was slowly learning to live with my trauma. The release of these convicts has taken away my peace and shaken my faith in justice. My pain and insecure faith is not just for me, but for all women fighting for justice in the courts. No one asked me about my safety and well-being before making such a huge and unfair decision. Please appeal to Gujarat Govt to undo this loss. Give me back the right to live in peace and without fear. Please make sure my family and I are safe.
