At the time when media print as well as electronic were busy in glorifying the Rinkle Kumari issue as “Love Affair “ or joyfully proclaiming the victory of ever -Islam over non Islamic religion it was Sindhi columnist Asad Chandio who unearthed the real story being the curtain.
Preseted herewith the same article of Asad Chandio in English for millions of Sympathizers of Rinkle Kumari who who don’t know Sindhi
Sindh : Bhagat Kanwar Ram to Rinkle Kumari
Using religion /Islam as an tool for intoxication, terrorizing one own race have been an pretty common feature of Sindh & Sindhis since ages present in the form of innumerable conspiracies against sindh . With the passage of time and more importantly despite both the conspiracy & conspirators being unmasked and their true color being made public we tend to be an integral part of such conspiracy without any self analysis or ever shy away by silently ignoring such conspiracy, neither we show any signs if not to replicate in future. Demonizing our own race aka snakes have been our national disease have bully us repeatedly and is to continue till the time we make ourselves believe of being our “own-self” and catalyzed us for a change.
Mirpur Mathelo’s Rinkle Kumari has indeed got strangled comprehensively in the game played in the name of “Love”!!!. One of the staunchest opponent of “Love Marrage” or “marriages by one’e own” Sindh have been issuing certificates of its progressiveness that ranges from “Rinkle issues being an issue of Love Marriage what the hell that we could do ?” to “Why the hell we should intervene ? “ thanks to the initial immaturity of Rinkle. From nationalists to Human Rights activist all are wrapped themselves in stubbed silence. Media too eager not to left behind have been working overtime to cover-up the crimes of rinh & powerful of Ghotki as if they are unaware that “One besieged out of some mistake forced to be a part of scoundrels is pleading for help with her tearful eyes”. Media bigwigs too seem to accept the “accepted” the “change” which is evident from their gleeful enjoyment as if they are not required to be aware of their responsibility !!!
The sheer disgrace of news Journalist in Sindh despite being present in Ghoki have forced me to take up the task of unearthing the truth being the story. As I went deep in the story facts the case become apparent that instead the story instead being that of an innocent girl of being in love with a wrong man she was the victim of an well planned conspiracy. A conspiracy that is at work since 1939 till date with outmost ruthlessness. We neither took notice of it then nor we intend to take notice today as “What I happening? “,Why it is happening? and “if allowed to happen what may happen down the line ?”
Before understanding as Who conspired this? why did they conspired ? and who were the conduits of such conspiracy ? let us understand the facts of “Rinkle case”
Rinkle kumari is 17 year student of Std. X residing at Sahi bazaar, Mirpur Mathelo who is planning for further studies. In the same locality is another young man Naved Shah, who apart from belonging to Panjabi Shelter family is a part of such a hippies who are controlled by criminal kingpin Hasam Kalhoro who is intern is under the care of Gothki Warlord and is known in world at large as MNA belonging to Pakistan Peoples Party. Hashim Kulhoro is an resident of an village Waki near Mirphur Mathelo being known for his ruthless in crime worls. To understate his crime one needs to refer single instance which happen way back in 2000: SHO after arresting him paraded him naked in Mitpur Mathelo. Naved Shah is just an little know member of his infamous Gang who earned some sort of distinction by merely being the conduit of forceful conversation thereby washing away all his past sins. In this context the issue comes of Rinkle being close to Naved Shah or being forced to be close to him is crucial to the understanding of the episode . It is imperative that we get into the bottom the issue to understand the mess.
Rinkle issue came to light on the Night of Friday February 24 (Remember Friday night – the importance that it has in pious Musalmaan’s life), the general view about Rinkle absconding goes on as this- She came out of her residence at Night she reached at that place where Hasam Kulhoro had already deputed three of his trusted men to help Naved Shah. Rinkle took the risk to meet Naved Shah but presence of three of Naved’s companion took her by surprise and shockingly her hope of returning got sealed on that point of time. She paid the price of her adventure by being at a place where she never thought to me in the wildest of her dreams. On 24 Feb Rinkle’s Uncle registers an FIR Vide no 2012/21 in Mirpur Mathelo Police Station thereby registering a complain officially against Naved Shah.
Even before Rinkle’s relatives and Town’s Hindu Panchyet get in terms of the situation of “What happened ? or How it happened ?” Rinkle’s family gets a calls around 1 PM from non other that local PPP MNA’s son Miyan Islam that Rinkle is with us and in you wished to meet her you are welcomed at Barchandis Sharif . Hindu community living in Ghotki are well aware of fact that how much freedom an 17 year old will be provide to express her desire/emotions in Barchondi Sharif !!!! Understandably the above circumstances Miyan Islam was asked to present Rinkle to DPO office which he refused. Eventually though he does agrees to bring Rinkle to Hindu panchyet office , but despite an verbal agreement Rinkle could not be presented on Hindu panchyet community hall as Miyan Mithoo team backtracked !!!!!
As per what have been detailed till now two things come to light
1. If Rinkle had herself choose to accept Islam than she could have been be presented at any damn place. If that had happen Barchondis could have remove the tag of forceful conversation of their head.!!! Why they were insisting only on Barchondi Sherif where nothing moves against their wishes ????
2. And in case Naved is an ordinary young man who wished to have some relationship with Rinkle , then she should have been in Naved’s residence but why she had been brought to infamous Barchondis who have dubious reputation for forceful conversation!!! Whatever may be the outcome of the talks between Rinkle relatives/Hindu community members, all communication was however postponed till any decisions is arrived at Sr. Civil Judge office at Ghotki
What happened on the next day in the office of SSP & Sr. Civil Judge Ghotki can only be understood on analysis of the drama enacted on a day before and after :
On Saturday 25 Feb. the torch bearer of lone voice in solidarity with the Rinkle’s family Mr. Raiz Chandio of Nationalist Sindhi Party Jeye Sindh Kaumi Mahaz was asked to come down to DSP Ghotki Office to meet Rinkle. The moment he arrived he saw not the police officer in this official chair but Miyan Mithoo’s Brother Miyan Shaman !!!! This act clearly justifies the apprehension that if Govt officials could behad in glove and susceptible to political pressure then what to expect of the victims !!!!!. The institutions who swore to work on the principals of Justice, impartiality & rule of Land shocks with yet another act : The DSP said to Riyaz Chandio “ In case you do not wished to Meet Rinkle in presence of Miyan Saam then you may meet her in presence of Naved Shah!!!”
Any dam person aware of justice system could easily understand that How come a person like Naved Shah be allowed to be with her victim when an FIR had already been lodge merely 24 hours back ? How it could be accepted by the family whose daughter have been kidnapped would ever accept to meet her alongside her abductor??? Throughout the drama Rinkle watch the scenario behind the closed window of Miyan Saam vehicle helplessly as Rinkle parents unable to get any positive response move to the office of Civil Judge Ghotki where her Statement under Rule 164 was to be recorded.
Rule 164 dictates that Statements is to be recorded in presence of both the parties which include even the lawyers from both sides. Consequently Rinkle began recording her statement which in presence of Naved Shah lawyers. Rinkel said “ I never choose to run away and marry. Some people intruded from our terrace and abducted me. I wish to go return to my family and not to Naved Shah or Barchiadis Pirs”. Rinkle not only gave the statement while she meet har parents but only in presence of Respected Judge of Civil Court. But while Rinkle was recording her statement a pre planned drama was enacted in the courtroom. (the chief conspirators are obviously believe to be Naved Shah’s lawyers as they passed on the information to miyan Mithoo , news about the statements being recorded of Rinkle). Even before the formalities for recording Rinkle Statement complete an drama is enacted in which Naved how apparently was medically fit& Fine , all off sudden acts to be fainted in the court room and to everybody surprise the Judge instead of handing over Rinkle to her parents transfers Rinkle to the sympathizers of Pirs , police for two days before postponing the session and Police follows suit to transfer her to Womens Police remand at Shukkar. This led to the process for modification of statement for Article 164 is initiated pretty easily !!!!! While Rinkle’s lawyers cried foul but the fate of Rinkle was as such that court instead of considering Darualm – Women Shelter home considered Police Custody as much more secure for Rinkle !!!!!
While still in Police Custody another notable incidentcomes to loght. While is she cursing her fate in her cell a policeman handsover a mobile phone to attend a call from warlord from Ghoti. On refusing to attend the call the policemen switches on the speakers. The strongman on call issues a veiled threat which goes as follows “look ! in case you don’t change your official statement of returning to your parents, not only you but all your family members will be butchered to death and Shops and residences of Hindus of ghotki will be set on fire”
In the mean time on the night of February 26 immediately after the news spreads that Pakistani President had taken a strong notice of the incident, the police which was till now “dutifully” abiding with the court orders immediately shifts Rinkle from Women Police custody that too at dead night around 2 AM. The court proceedings was to start from 8:15 AM on Feburary 27, yet it repeating the scenario of abduction shifts Rinkle in uttur hurry. Nobody knows why prompted the police to shift Rinkle that too in such an hurry considering the distance from Sukkur to Mirpur Mathelo takes just one hour !!!
27th. February was the day of unprecedented developments for inhabitants of Mirpur Mathelo. All roads leading to Court of Civil Judge were sealed by Tankers. But shockingly such restrictions were not applied for sympathizers of Pirs & Mullhas who rammed in Dozens of Vehicles whose numbers is any estimates not less than in thousands. Despite massing up such an strength they still required fully loaded guns to face an unarmed handful of members of Hindu community such was their fear on that day!!!!. On the other hand no one is ready to ferry Rinkle’s family members or their sympathizers to court such is the fear factor in Ghotki !!! When this issue was being taken up with the local police – out of sheer pity police allows just and only four women of Rinkle’s Family and the petitioner Rinkle’s uncle Daya Ram was permitted to reach the court!!!!. On one side Barchandis Pirs fully armed Sons & Brothers (Miyan Mithoos son Miyan Aslam was fully armed – His picture was in fact displayed in Media reporting as well) with fully armed men along with thousands of their supporters and on the other hand was mare four women of Rinke’s Family and lone male member Uncle Daya Ram !!!! In such an “Justified” environment when their vehicle makes its way to the court , Lawyers fighting the case for Naved Shah yells at the Muslim Layers representing Rinkle and removes their black forcibly as if by conquering the body of an 17 year old helpless girl equates to conquering of Somnath Mandir -“ What a Fuss !!!! Being Muslims your people are representing Hindus ????? you bloody betrayers !!!!” However by some way eventually Rinkle Family did make way to the court just to see the entire courtyard filled with not only armed followers of Barchandis but by Miyan Mithoo sons Miyan Rafiq & Miyan Aslam apart from their brother in law Miyan Javed !!!.
Under rule 164 it is mandatory that the statement be recorded after a meeting of victim with both the parties which may go up to 2 hours after which the statement could be recorded but in the history of judiciary this should be the first time that court which assembles at 08:15 in the morning, treats an Victim to be a criminal , denies the family even to see her visually leave apart any sort of meeting!!!!!. The court which merely 48 hours back spend its entire day unable to record her statement displayed unprecedented hurry to finish off the proceedings by 8:45 AM !!!! That too by “announcing!!!!” that Rinkle statement have been recorded !!!!! Even before the court room was getting emptied that lies start spreading courtesy private news channel that “ Hey ! Rinkle had choose to be Muslim by accepting Shariat Mahumadi !!!!
In a sheer mockery of Media present even before the court is adjourned Rinkle was handed over to the barchandis !!!
Today the law of land is silent, Judiciary is silent and silent are those nationalist who hardly waste any time to shed blood for any drop of sweet in the name of Sindhi nationalism. !!!! Utter Soundlessness had engulfed even those Human Right Activists who hardly waste a minute to take credit of their sacrifices in the name of humanity and make it heard from victims!!!! Media too is either silent or busy chanting slogans “ Islam Zindabad ”!!!! Under such circumstances if there are any tears it had to be that of either Rinkle’s or her relatives!!!! who if they had strength would have brought storm to save her!!….Everybody had reasons to be quite. The so called Sindhi Nationalists choose to lick Wadhers (Rich & Powerfull of interior sindh) feet rather than take up Sindh’s cause.!!! One of the gretest Sindhi Poet Shekh Awaz was once reminded “ Are you aware of the sindhi you are talking about ?” today such assessment seem too read to ignore
Barchondis own infamous dubious character was displayed in full public glare was neither the first nor the last. 2nd. November 1939 was the unfortunate day when one of the respected, Holy and admired Saint Bhagat Kanwar Ram was assassinated at Ruk Statation by the same Barchondis. The main accused in that Muder case was none other than own father of now PPP MNA Miya Mithoo, Abdul Rahim along with his two followers. At that time British were busy implementing their well tested policy of spreading venom between Hindus and Muslim in Sindh and strengthening the very presence of Muslim League in Sindh and above anything triggering off the mass migration of Hindus from Sindh , Barchondis were the ones who prepared the ground for them brick by brick. With the well thought out game plan under their sleeves the British initially managed to harass men of Barchondis and in return the revenge was taken by assassinating Sain Bhagat Kanwar Ram. Now only this the same group was responsible for the killing in broad daylight in Sukkur of Mr Panmani – the Hindu member of Sindh Assembly who protested against the killing.!!!!!Such was the mechanism of Barchondis to strengthen Muslim League at the expenses of Sindh’s Hindu Sindhi community. This eventually forced lacs of Hindus to take refuge in foreign land (India). The conspiracy is still alive till this very day. The blue eyed boys of those “Desi British” are still studying the same lessons from the same dargah working dedicatedly on the same mission. Despite the fact that in sindhi Muslim samaj, the punishment for even a abuse of slightest crime against women is bloody DEATH yet when it comes to a Hindu Sindhi even a well respected PPP leaders are more than ready to abuse, abduct and convert young hindu girls!!! In a society where a mare crime like theft of an Goat by an poor unable to hire a lawyer could result in a life imprisonment!!!, herds of layers and Media assembles in excitement and joy for a case which is nothing more than a clear cut case of Kidnapping & forced conversation.!!!! Apart from forcefully converting teenage girls from the same village Daya Bai, Rajni Bai, Dr. Radha , Dr Sulachni Gul, Priyanka Nilam Ladhani , thereby glorifying Islam. Despite being responsible for crimes against humanity they shockingly pride in it!!!. There are reports that Hindu girls who are married on some pretext or other and then after nullified from their marriages are made sex slaved and are made to present at their service as kidnappers wish !!!. Whenever such issue comes to light we sindhi Muslims had to do more than merely pointing fingers at each other , but till the time the issues come to light we had to reconcile to the fact that we had to stay in Black dark night but more importantly it will be our political activism & Sindhi pride that shall me made to pay for the mess. Some day some where we would obviously be held us accountable for sure !!!
Weather Rinkle case would be like the Bengali women (of 1971 period in Now Bangladesh) Rajni -brutalized and raped mother of 4 or it could proved to be a test case of Sindhis (Muslims) being alive and conscious – I don’t know but I would like to preset the words of an physician of the beleaguered Hindu community to the people of Sindh. I am sure everybodyof us in present day Sindh should be having some answer but what I don’t know is weather we would like to pronounce our verdict !!!! Everybody from us however could put up the question the themselves. Assuming that I put the same question to myself, I could not sleep for more than 2 hours in the last 48 hours. If you like instead of thinking anything else , condenser just as we normally do- kick out such non-sense and believe that Sindhis are better off thinking that evaluating such issues is nothing than wastage of time: We are strictly upset, we are tense and under severe psychological pressure “ What prevents us from seeking justice for ourselves , that we cant even see our forcefully kidnapped/married daughters, can’t meet our daughters, and cant invite them as guests !!! Ten this bring us to the as existed during hey days of Muslim league – that is Shall we start killing our teenage daughters with our own hands on reaching puberty ???????
