Update on Nurse Magdalene Case!

Nurses held a 3 day protest seeking justice for Nurse Magdalene!

Christian groups and non christian groups are uniting in their desire for action against the perpetrator of another awful tragedy to fall on an innocent victim.  The Catholic student nurse Magdalene Ashraf was raped and conflicting reports state that she was either thrown or jumped from a 4th/2nd floor window.  Magdalene Ashraf is still fighting for her life and we ask that you pray for her recovery and justice to prevail.   More details can be found by clicking on the following links:

An update has been provided by brother Taskeen Khan (sic):

He was there to serve the wounded and to give the vulnerable the hope to live, but no one knew that he was wearing a mascot of a sheep to hide his evil and wolfish innerself. Now everyone knows him as so-called “doctor” Abdul Jabbar Memon through news media and sadly enough that he was appointed in Pakistan’s largest city Karachi’s well reputed Jinnah Hospital’s “Medical-Legal Officer” (MLO), where he ruined all the legalities though appointed "Legal Officer" by committing one of the sins which leaves an unscratchable scar on the soul of any daughter of the eve. This time Magdalene Ashraf, a 23-years old ill-fated Christian girl, daughter of Ashraf Masih, originally from Punjab was the victim of someone's evil covetousness on Tuesday.

"Doctor" Abdul Jabbar Memon is now charged with sexually assaulting, as today (Wednesday) a medical report totally proved that he trapped and raped innocent Magdalene Ashraf. Unfortunate girl tried to save herself, but she could only manage to jump down from as high as 4th floor, now fighting for her life after suffering from severe head injuries.

According to the detailed reports the president of the Pakistan Nursing Association, Iqbal Ahmed, told “The Express Tribune” that Magdalene had been locked up in the MLO ‘’Doctor” Abdul Jabbar Memon’s room for two days. The police have yet to verify these claims, though local authorities have taken him into custody.

It’s also reported that after raping third-year student MLO jumped from the balcony and tried to escape, but he got injured in the process, so people caught him and handed him over to the hospital administration.

Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre (JPMC) Accident and Emergency chief Dr Seemin Jamali has also confirmed that this is a case of rape after initial examination report.

Some children witnessed the fall. “I heard my children scream as they saw the girl fall from the balcony,” reported Dr Saleem, who lives in the area. “When I went there I saw her lying face down, bleeding from her head.” He said her clothes were torn and the MLO was looking down from his balcony. According to officials, the incident took place around 5:30pm. The MLO then jumped from the balcony and tried to escape. But people caught him and handed him over to the hospital administration.

“We complained to the hospital administration about the MLO many times. [He] had illegally occupied the room,” claimed Dr Sangeeta, a resident of the colony.

According to reports, the MLO was suspended from his post on disciplinary grounds 15 days prior to the incident. The nursing association’s Iqbal Ahmed said the MLO belonged to Badin district and used to work at Abbasi Shaheed Hospital.

The Saddar police registered an attempt to murder case under Section 234 of the Pakistan Penal Code against the doctor on behalf of JPMC security chief Arshad Janjua.

In the FIR, Arshad Janjua stated that the MLO threw Magdalene from his room.

Saddar SHO Shabbir Hussain said that Magdalene was not in a position to record her statement. He said that it had yet to be ascertained whether she jumped of her own accord or was pushed or fell by mistake. “We found broken pieces of glass in the room, which suggests that there was some resistance before the incident,” said the officer.

Investigation continues, nurses in Jinnah Hospital, Karachi are observing a strike, please remember Magdalene Ashraf in your prayers.

Good people must unite as one body and we would ask people of any nationality, faith and any other diversity to join our Peace Rally/Protest on the 31st July to vent their frustrations at the poor Justice system and inequality in Pakistan.  Moreover, why not make it a global day of peace and protest by organising similar events on the same day - abroad.
