Pakistani celebrities speak up for attempted murder survivor Khadija Siddiqui
People were in shock by the court decision and many stars also showed their support and demanded justice through their social media accounts.
Khadija was being stabbed by her own class fellow Shah Husain in Lahore in May 2016 in retaliation for her refusal of his advances. While he was sentenced to five years in prison for attempted murder, the sentence was overturned yesterday and Husain now walks free.
Let's look at some of the tweets which are under the trending tag #JusticeforKhadija :
A seven-year sentence for attempted murder - reduced to five years - reduced to nothing. This is how we value a woman seeking justice with proof (multiple eye-witnesses, DNA match) - the message is loud and clear. She is reduced to nothing. #JusticeForKhadija— Osman Khalid Butt (@aClockworkObi) June 4, 2018
And if it is the game of power, then so be it. Because there is nothing more powerful than when people come together united for a cause against those in power. We are with you @khadeeeej751 #justiceforkhadija— Mahira Khan (@TheMahiraKhan) June 4, 2018
Shah Hussain, who was found guilty last year of brutally stabbing @khadeeeej751 23 times, has just been acquitted by the Lahore High Court. Shameful day for Pakistan. Please support her and her lawyer @HniaziISF as they continue this fight.#WeareWithKhadija #JusticeForKhadija pic.twitter.com/4ubzCgz3Py— Jeremy McLellan (@JeremyMcLellan) June 4, 2018
WHAT THE HELL? I am hearing that attacker of #KhadijaSiddiqi who stabbed her 24 times has been acquitted by Lahore High Court???? If this is true, then we must all unite & be Khadija's voice & leave no stone unturned to get her justice against this barbarian! #WeAreWithKhadija pic.twitter.com/BimkvEK8Z5— Hamza Ali Abbasi (@iamhamzaabbasi) June 4, 2018
I want to remind Justice Ahmed Naeem that this is not 2005 & we will not let the culprit of such a heinous crime get away with it. We demand justice for khadija & many more who suffer & the perpetrators are acquitted !!! #KhadijaSiddiqiCase #westandwithKhadija— MAWRA HOCANE (Hussain) (@MawraHocane) June 4, 2018
We highly agree with the celebrities and demand justice for Khadija and more people who suffered such brutal and inhumane acts.
