The secretary of Women’s department of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind (JIH) has demanded an impartial probe into the alleged rape and murder of Delhi’s civil defence worker Rabiya Saifi alias Sabiya.
In a statement, expressing utter shock over the brutal murder of 21-year-old Rabiya, JIH Secretary Mrs.Rahmatunnisa also demanded to arrest the culprits immediately and ex-gratia payment to her family members. She said, “news reports about family members not being satisfied with the course and speed of investigation should be verified. It is a sad reality that despite so much rhetoric about ‘Beti Bachao’, we have still not created a climate in which our girls and women feel safe and secure in their workplace and outdoors.”
Mrs.Rahmatunnisa has expressed hope that the government, law enforcement agencies, lawmakers, the judiciary and concerned citizens will chalk out new policies for the protection and security of women so that they can accomplish their potential without fear of being stalked, harassed and losing their lives to crimes that put humanity to shame.
