This story needs to be shared and never forgotten.
This one hit me hard! We won’t ever forget you Farkhunda Malikzada.
‘Farkhunda, 28, was beaten, hit by bats, stamped on, driven over, and her body dragged by a car before being set on fire. Her father said she had complained about women being encouraged to waste money on the amulets peddled by the mullahs at the shrine. “Based on their lies, people decided Farkhunda was not a Muslim and beat her to death,” Mohammed Nadir told AP. The policeman who saw the incident, Sayed Habid Shah, said Farkhunda had denied setting the Koran on fire.”She said I am a Muslim and Muslims do not burn the Koran,” he said. “As more people gathered, the police were trying to push them away, but it got out of control,” he added. “Last night I went through all documents and evidence once again, but I couldn’t find any evidence to say Farkhunda burnt the Holy Koran,” General Mohammad Zahir told reporters at her funeral on Sunday.
“Farkhunda was totally innocent.”
I want everyone to know that Farkhunda did nothing wrong not even in the light of Islam, she gave dawah to the Mullah. She informed him that charms are prohibited in Islam. Her father out of fear had said that she had a mental illness, in order to protect the rest of his family but in a country where women are objectified and used as symbols of purity in their tribes but a word is required to turn against them and show that anything out of line reduces the value of their honour and so the source of it must be removed. I cannot stress enough that there is no exaggeration here.
Please wake up, this cannot be tolerated anymore “This is not just an attack on Farkhunda, but on all #Afghanwomen. All women. They have killed us all”
