LAHORE, June 10: The interior ministry has placed Mukhtaran Mai’s name on the Exit Control List (ECL).Sources in the ministry told Dawn on Friday that Mukhtaran Mai had been scheduled to leave for London in a day or two on an invitation from the Amnesty International.“Her name has been placed on the ECL with a directive to the Federal Investigation Agency to ensure compliance,” an officer of the FIA said.The official said the government had taken the decision on reports that her visit could ‘tarnish’ the image of the country abroad.
SHAME ON YOU, THE SO CALLED ENLIGHTENED AND MODERATED GOVERNMENT OF PAKISTAN! If you cannot give her JUSTICE at least give her FREEDOM. Pakistan's image is already tarnished by letting Mai's rapists free. By pining her down in the country you are punishing her not the rapists. You are mocking on the notion of enlightened moderation. You are doing this to her just becasue she has defied the norm of remaining silent against barbaric atrocity of rape. SHAME ON YOU!!! If the so called enlightened and moderated government officials have a little bit of selfrespect they should resign from their office.
