Peace rally for Nurse Magdalene!

Today hundreds of Christians rallied in front of Jinnah Post Graduate Medical Center demanding justice for Trainee Nurse Magdalene Ashraf and the prosecution of the Muslim Doctor Muhammad Jabbar Memon, who raped her, and then threw her from a hospital window. 

Nurse Magdalene Ashraf was thrown from the 4th floor window of Jinnah Post Graduate Medical Center on evening of July 13, 2010.

The protest was organised by Gawahi Mission Trust but many established groups such as Justice and Peace Commission Karachi, Sindh Medico Association, Nursing Association and Christian Lawyers Foundation Joined in and chanted slogans such as “ Justice for Magdalene Ashraf” “Punish Rapist Muslim Doctor Jabbar Memon”

Pastor Naveed Malik, Chairman of Gawahi Mission Trust was only high profile religious leader present in procession, many have asked why other prominent Christians did not join the clamour for justice.

The alleged rape culprit and doctor was also admitted to JPMC where Magdalene Ashraf Masih was fighting for life in an intensive care unit of the hospital.  After much protest he was moved to a private hospital on July 14, 2010.

To date a case of simple assault which falls under section 324 of the Pakistani Penal Code was registered against Dr. Jabbar Memon in Saddar Police Station on July 13, 2010.  Thus far charges of rape were not filed by local police against this culprit.

The protesters marched toward Karachi Press Club from Jinnah Post Graduate Medical Center and continued to stage a protest in front of the Press Club.
