Pakistan - SIALKOT INCIDENT - A Right to Life for All
- GOVERNMENT OF PAKISTAN, SUPREME COURT OF PAKISTAN, UNITED NATIONS, HUMAN RIGHTS ORGANIZATIONS.
We, the people and the friends of Pakistan, denounce and strongly protest against the violation of Human Rights of two individuals in Sialkot who were brutally killed in public on the 15th of August 2010.
The two young brothers, Hafiz Muneeb, aged 19, and Hafiz Mughees, aged 15, became victims of mob fury on August 15 2010. While the Sialkot District Police Officer, Waqar Ahmed Chauhan, and eight other police officers remained silent spectators, the mob went on with the brutal beating session which led to their deaths. The bodies were then hanged upside down by the mob on a crossing. It went on to become a matter of national concern when the video footage of the brutal crime was aired repeatedly on a private television channel and then played in front of the courtroom.
The following Universal Declaration of Human Rights were violated for these two young men.
No 3. The Right to Life
No 5. No Torture
No 7. We ‘re All Equal Before the Law.
No 8. Your Human Rights are Protected by Law
No 11. We’re Always Innocent Till Proven Guilty.

Innocent lives have been taken in the presence of the police-force and presence of public. Both failed to take action to protect the rights of others.
Pakistan has regular instances of the killing of innocent people. The newspapers provide details of these incidents. They have become a norm in daily lives of the public of Pakistan. Lawlessness is on the increase. Unless we start a massive campaign of Human Rights for all, we are promoting Human Rights violations.
The spectators of Human Rights violations who do nothing to stop it, are themselves part of the violation of Human Rights. The truth is that the spectators failed to take responsibility for others in this incident.
Human Rights No 29 states: We have a duty to other people and we should protect their rights and freedoms.
WE ARE PLANNING A MASSIVE GLOBAL "e-Protest" TO RAISE OUR VOICE.
WORKING WITH "YOUTH FOR HUMAN RIGHTS INTERNATIONAL'' WE ARE TARGETING AT LEAST 10,000 SIGNATURES ACROSS THE GLOBE. WE WILL SEND THIS PETITION TO the GOVERNMENT OF PAKISTAN, SUPREME COURT OF PAKISTAN, UNITED NATIONS, HUMAN RIGHTS ORGANIZATIONS, POLITICIANS, PRESS AND MEDIA.
We the people and the friends of Pakistan demand from the Government of Pakistan to:
1) Try in a court of law all policemen involved in this brutal murder who did not take active steps to stop the killing of these two boys.
2) Try in a court of law all public individuals involved in the violation of Human Rights of the two boys.
3) To make compulsory Human Rights education for all police-force of Pakistan.
4) To make compulsory Human Rights Education for all public individuals. This should be done in order to restore peace and tolerance amongst the people of Pakistan, irrespective of the beliefs held by the individuals.
We, the people and friends of Pakistan, demand the basic rights of the individuals of Pakistan and the restoration of Basic Human Rights for all.
