On Wednesday, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) has dismissed the bail petitions of Zahir Jaffer’s parents, and this has given the whole nation a renewed sense of hope in Noor Mukadam’s murder case.
Justice Aamer Farooq issued the verdict on the bail pleas and ordered the court to complete their trial within two months of the announcement.
The decision has come almost two months after the ghastly incident took place, which shook the entire nation to its core. On July 20, Noor Mukadam, who was only 27 years old, was found murdered at a private elite residence in F-7/4.
Since then, many social media activists, women, men, and human rights advocates have taken to the streets as well as social media platforms to raise their voices against the gruesome murder. They want to keep fighting till justice has prevailed.
They haven’t stopped and are claiming that they won’t stop unti this case makes history in Pakistan. They want to make an example out of the prime accused, Zahir Jaffer, and his parents, Zakir Jaffer and Asmat Adamje.
Ever since the murder took place, many gut-wrenching details have come out of the case and it has made matters worse for women in Pakistan. With every new development, their fear of being attacked, murdered, groped, and sexually assaulted in broad daylight, has been massively triggered. The timeline of Mukadam’s murder is a story of pain and despair.
Now that the IHC has finally decided to reject the bail petitions of Zahir Jaffer’s parents, the whole nation has erupted in an Alhumdulilah because this was long-awaited.
For some, it was a nice day to witness the monumental update in Mukadam’s murder case.
This news has given people a flicker of hope to hold on to.
Pakistanis are hopeful that justice will eventually prevail and an example will be set by the time the court proceedings are done with.
