A Year Passes From The Death Of Farkhonda…

Exactly a year ago we witness the brutal death of innocent Farkhonda by the hands of ignorant people which brought sorrow to all Afghan people. Farkhonda a 27 years old girl was accused of burning Quran by the local Mullah. In the presence of police she was beaten and stoned to death and after that her body was burned in Shah Doshamshera of Kabul city. This violent act united the people throughout Afghanistan and even abroad asking the government to punish the culprits of this act but the afghan courts after three court sessions punished them with few months of imprisonment which is not acceptable by the people and particularly by Afghan women. Humanitarian Assistance for the Women and Children of Afghanistan (HAWCA) as a women right defending organization gives its condolences to all the Afghan women and particularly to Farkhondas family. HAWCA is determined to work for the women victims of violence and be their voice until the day that the Afghan women get their human rights, and we do not have any more victims such as Farkhonda, Rukhshana, Tabasom etc
