The Islamabad High Court has dismissed the arguments in the petition against the Aurat Azadi March!

These were the remarks by Chief Justice Athar Minallah on the petition submitted against us:

Have you read the demands issued by the organizers circulated widely on media & able to highlight anything unconstitutional or unIslamic? On what basis can you hypothesize is that there demands & slogans are bound to be unIslamic? Do you have any evidence to support your claim?
"The Aurat Azadi March organizers have already clarified the meaning of the slogans being impugned & how they fall within the rights already granted by the Constitution of Pakistan & by Islam. How can the petitioners say 'that is wrong' & attribute a negative meaning to them?"

To all the opponents of #AuratAzadiMarch2020

Here is why I support Aurat March:

1)Most women in my region are treated inhumanely. They conceive 12 times on average, lack access to even basic healthcare, go 4 first ante-natal checkup only during last 2 months of pregnancy.
2) I know women who are regularly subjected to physical violence by husbands but they can’t even complain bec it might lead to even worse consequence ie divorce. Parents are usually aware but they are helpless in such circumstances.

Even people in pos of authority are of no help
3) I know women who made rotis & food for 40-50 everyday for 30-40 years. They do this while raising 10+ kids & doing all other domestic chores. They don’t get a word of thanks from menfolk, let alone being paid for the labour. Worse part, they still get beaten.
