Swat girl denies flogging by Taliban By Rahimullah Yusufzai Monday, April 06, 2009
You and Rahimullah Yusufzai say that flogging didn't take place but read the heading of another news report from the same newspaper, this news like Mr Ansar Abbasi is itself confusing, headline say it happened, text say id is fake, CM Says it happened in the past.
Where has gone now the so-called Shariah which Ansar Abbasi was trying to defend while defending Sufi Muhammad, Flogging and Taliban while reciting Quranic Verses of Surah-e-Nur[AL-NOOR (THE LIGHT) Chapter 24 from Quran] and what a fun he was reciting Surah Nur Verses to an Unveiled [BAYPARDAH] GEOTV News READER [I wonder where have gone all the verses of Quran regarding Veil]..
Reaction of Ansar Abbasi about Swat girl flogging
Zardari to sign deal despite flogging: Hoti By Ansar Abbasi Monday, April 06, 2009
ISLAMABAD: NWFP Chief Minister Amir Haider Khan Hoti says there may be a delay but no deadlock on the issue of President Asif Zardari signing the Nizam Adl law in Swat.
When asked on Sunday whether the case of Swat flogging derail the process and whether President Zardari would now give his mandatory sanction for the enforcement of Niazme Adal, he said, “There are delays but there would not be a deadlock.”
But the chief minister insisted the video clip shown on various TV channels, showing a young girl being lashed, is fake, has nothing to do with Swat and is a conspiracy to sabotage the peace process there.
Talking to The News from Peshawar, Hoti said it seems to be a conspiracy to derail the Swat peace process. Admitting the video has caused a setback to the Swat peace process, Amir Haider Khan Hoti expressed his optimism that things would proceed smoothly as soon as the dust caused by the fake video settles down.
Hoti disclosed he has already directed his chief secretary to apprise the Supreme Court about the facts of the case as the apex court would hear the case on Monday. Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry had taken suo motu notice of the video clips shown by television channels, and directed the provincial authorities to bring the girl before the court. A large bench of the apex court to be headed by the chief justice himself was also constituted to hear the case.The NWFP chief minister smelled a rat over the timing of the release of the video and argued, “The timing says it all and proves that some forces were bent upon derailing the Swat peace process.”
But he was determined to pursuing the peace agreement that his government had struck with Maulana Sufi Muhammad on January 26. When asked about the inquiry conducted by the provincial administration to ascertain facts as shown in the video clip, Hoti categorically said, “Our probe clearly shows that the incident as shown in the video clip has nothing to do with Swat.”
He revealed the provincial government would apprise the apex court that in the past Swat had perhaps witnessed much gory scenes, including butchering and slaughtering of human beings and there were also a few incidents of women flogging in the past but what was shown to have happened in Swat on the television screens all over the world was simply untrue.
He also pointed out the thing that needs to be noticed is that despite being flogged 35 lashes, the supposedly 17-year-old girl immediately stood up and easily went into a house without showing any sign of pain.
