Case Summary:

June 2005



March 2005



2004



Aug 2002




June 2002

Rapists freed and Mukhtaran under House arrest. Mukhtaran put on Exit control list(ECL). Muktaran is outraged.

The Multan bench of the Lahore High Court acquitted five of the six convicts, while deciding appeals against the judgement of the anti-terrorism court. The death sentence of the sixth convict was changed into life term.

Two years after the gang rape, two men of the Matsoi tribe were sentenced to imprisonment for sodomising Shakur, Mukhtaran's 12 yr old brother.

The uproar across Pakistan came with an intensity that made her case impossible for officials to overlook. Her case was taken up by the non-governmental Human Rights Commission of Pakistan and the perpetrators were tried and convicted in anti-terrorism courts. Death sentences were handed down to six found guilty by anti-terrorism court.

Pakistani village Meerwala - A young boy is sodomized by men from Mastoi tribe. When the boy thretened to report the incident, the Mastoi men called the tribal council (jirga) and accused the boy of raping a Mastoi girl. At the conclusion of the meeting, the boy's family was told that the Mastois would forgive the boy if his sister, Mukhtaran Mai, came before the council to plead for clemency on her brother's behalf. When the sister was brought to the council, however, four of the Mastoi men took her to a nearby house and gang-raped her—as per the council's decree.

"Man's dearest possession is life. It is given to him but once, and he must live it so as to feel no torturing regrets for wasted years, never know the burning shame of a mean and petty past; so live that, dying he might say: all my life, all my strength were given to the finest cause in all the world- the fight for the Liberation of Mankind."
Nikolai Ostrovsky
