Apologies for not replying to everyone’s lovely comments, I have been busy with family weddings so I should hopefully reply by tonight. I wasn’t going to post anything, I rarely post on weekends but I went on Instagram today and was glad to see many Hindustans, Bollywood actors included, supporting #justiceforAsifa.
There was a hashtag listed on the caption so I clicked to see what else is being said. While I was scrolling, I saw a photo that was blurred due to sensitive content. I had no idea what it was but I clicked on it and what did I see? Asifa’s actual body dumped on the ground. I was absolutely disgusted and nauseated and I immediately regretted agreeing to view the image. The careless manner in which she was dumped on the ground like a spare piece of scrap metal as opposed to the young child and human being that she is horrified me.
This is not a religious issue. This is a criminal issue. And I’m so pleased (and relieved) to see many Hindustans fighting for justice for Asifa. And for those who say that we can’t do anything, I disagree. Look how much can happen by people who stand up for themselves and others. Look at Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, etc. The list goes on. We, the people, ARE justice and the executors of justice and not just the government, the judiciary, or monarchy.
I sincerely hope and make dua that justice is delivered for Asifa.
