you’d be hearing about this from every establishment media outlet in the
world. As it is, however, you’ll hear about it from not a single one of
“Deaf-mute Christian girl subjected to 5-man gang-rape and torture
for 2 months, due to police negligence and local Muslim community
acceptance of the crime,” British Pakistani Christian Association, November 16, 2020 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
Earlier this year, on 16th March 2020, BACA reported on
the dithering police that failed to take action after a 17-year-old
Christian teenager whis [sic] both deaf and mute, was kidnapped from her
home, then forcibly married to a Muslim neighbour under a sham Islamic
marriage (click here)
Police at Sanda Police Station, Lahore failed to take action despite
registering a First Information Report (FIR) 405/2020 on 17th March, in
which they listed the crime of kidnap of a minor – though at the time
no suspects were identified.
Several attempts to garner a police response by Komal’s parents
failed to start any investigation. Infact, it was only two months later
on 17th March 2020, when a local MP Tariq Gill got involved that police
initiated a trace on the last call received from Komal by mother Rubina
(45 yrs), just before Komal went missing.
During the investigation two suspects were identified Ali Mubashir
and Mohammed Azeem who had had been before the home of Komal at around
the time she went missing. Local police called Mr Azeem’s telephone
number and got through and he agreed to meet for questioning, but then
absconded and become non-traceable for the duration of the two months
with Mr Mubashir.
Then on Good Friday (10th April) a call was received by the mother of
Komal, Rubina (44 yrs) who heard strange mutterings on the phone that
sounded like her daughter. She reported this to the police who began a
trace on the number.
Two weeks later the trace identified a man named Kashif Ghulam
Rasool, who was also a local neighbour and a search began for the
fugitive. Unfortunately his phone was now switched off and he had also
been found to have absconded.
On 12th of May 2020, Rubina Patras filed a subsequent bian
(statement) and nominated 5 persons involved in the abduction of her
daughter Komal. The subsequent bian stated that on 16th March 2020,
close relatives of Rubina Patras, Mubarik Masih and Saleem Masih
witnessed a distressed Komal sobbing in a van along with five unknown
Through discussions with local neighbours it soon became very clear
who the five men were because they had all disappeared from the
community at the same time that Komal disappeared. So Rubina was able
to inform local police of community suspicions that Muhammed Azeem,
Mubashir Ali and Ali Abbas were involved in the kidnapping. One man was
On identification of the culprits, police raided the home of Muhammad
Azeem on 24th May and through interrogation they were also able to
arrest Mubashar Ali and Ali Abbas, who were in the same house located in
Deepalpur, District Okara. The men denied any knowledge of Komal’s
whereabouts but police kept them in their custody.
Following further searches for Kashif at his home, the paternal uncle
of Kashif turned up at Sandha Police Station on 5th June. and brought
Komal before the police. He informed police that the teenager was
legally married and produced a sham Islamic marriage certificate, a
forged birth certificate that stated Komal was 18 years of age (the
legal age of consensual marriage). The uncle also brought a
certificate of conversion to Islam. He told the officers that Komal
would be allowed to speak to her parents, but under no circumstance
should she be returned to the family. She was the property of Kashif
who was her legal husband and after the meeting Komal should be returned
Following the orders of Kashif’s uncle the police invited the parents
of Komal, Patras Masih (55 yrs) and Rubina to meet with their
daughter. The parents said that Komal was in an obvious distressed
state and wept while she communicated in sign language with them. She
informed the parents she loved them, that she wanted to return to them
and longed for their protection and that she had been regularly raped by
a gang of 5 Muslim men. When the parents demanded for their daughter
to be returned to them, police denied them permission to take her with
them. Member of Provincial Assembly, Tariq Gill who had visited the
police with the family demanded for her release and a further police
On 6th June 2020, Komal was required to attend the Health Department
of the Government of the Punjab and underwent a medical examination
by Dr. Tauqir Asifa. In her medical report she confirmed the physical
and sexual abuse of Komal and identified significant wounding on her
right forearm and multiple scars were found on the left foot.
Later the same day, Komal went to the District Education Officer
(Special Education) Lahore, to meet with a government officer who
understood sign language a statement was thus derived at via Tahir
Hussain Gazzi. It is listed that Komal said:
“I was cleaning the floor of my house at around 1:30 pm.
“Suddenly Kashif Ghulam Rasool and her mother Raqiya came and dragged me out of my house by my arm.
“I’m deaf-mute so I could not make any noise to catch attention of family members.
“They took me into a car and drove me to the other side of the River Ravi.
“On 19th March they took me to Jamia Nameea Lahore and was converted to Islam, Kashif made me do it.
“Kashif Ghulam Rasool forced me to marry him.
“After that my husband took me to different places to avoid arrest by the police and he often beat me.”
On the same day, Kashif his mother Raqiya applied for pre-arrest bail
in the court of Additional Sessions Judge Lahore, Ch. Zulfiqar Ali.
Without any hesitation the Muslim judge granted bail to both of them
against the surety bonds of 30,000 PKR each. Raqiya had been very
friendly to the family of Komal and had been helping in the
investigation, much the same as the the caretaker involved in the Soham
Murders in the UK. During police investigation she flatly denied being
involved in the kidnap, despite being recognized by Komal and her phone
number being called during the kidnap of Komal. Oddly she even the
parents of Komal when they visited her house on discovering her number
was listed in Kashif’s mobile. She later that evening beat Komal too
because she had made calls that would later lead to her arrest.
Some time later, Qari Muhammad Saeed of Dar-Ul-Aloom Jamia Naeemia,
Lahore, gave a statement to the police that on the 19th of March Komal
was converted to Islam and legally married. In a statement to
Investigation Officer (IO) Ibrar Hussain, he said:
“This conversion took place by writing Qalma Tayba on a paper.
“Komal was brought to me for conversion.
“Komal told me through signs that she can read and write and so I wrote Qalma Tayba on a piece of paper for her.
“Komal followed me in writing Qalma Tayba on another piece of paper and in this way Komal entered into Islam.”
Patras Masih has spoken with BACA about the poor policing they suffered, he said:
“The Investigation report presented by IO Ibrar Hussain clearly favored the culprits.
“In his report he took statements from Muslims in the house that my daughter was repeatedly raped.
“They stated that Komal seemed very happy and content in her marriage and denied other men entered the house.
“Instead of doing a fair investigation and recording the facts he recorded these false statements as true
“This delayed the return of my daughter and led to more beatings and rapes and has slowed down the process of justice.”
In the office of Deputy Inspector General of Police Lahore, an
application was filed to reinvestigate the matter by MPA Tariq Gill. The
application was denied by the office however, BACA’s solicitor Sumaira
Hussain who is leading this case will be seeking an investigation into
police conduct through the courts.
A protest was held in front of Lahore Press Club when the biased and
despicable police negligence that led to an extension of the torturous
treatment towards Komal. To reduce community anxiety and to bring and
end to the protest DSP Javed Sadiq of Central Investigation Agency
confirmed to the parents of Komal that from now on a fair investigation
will ensue, after calling them to his office on 4th November 2020.
Komal is with her family in a secret place while she is recovering from a very brutal and violent attack.
