Posted on 07/23/2011 1:54:55 AM PDT by musarratullah
PESHAWAR, July 23. Family members from Regi village alleged police of burning their household things and opening fire on them for no allegations saying women of the homes were insulted by the police during body search. We are too poor to eat even two times as we earn livelihood for children on daily wages, lamented Tilah Muhammad while talking to media persons here at press club Peshawar. The women who prevented firing and burning of their houses while faced insults by police, he claimed. He said they came from Fijr prayers and were busy in breakfast when the police raided their home and opened firing on them, The children, women and men had narrow escape from the lavishly firing and the police gathered all the household things, burnt them alongwith their house, he added. The police asked us to show whereabouts of the fugitives who we neither know nor have any kind of relation or neighborhood with the wanted people but it started beating us, children and women, he expressed anger over police high handedness with innocent and poor civilians. After police cruelty, he said on one hand, it set ablaze to their houses and others as well but on the other it kept forcing them to vacate and leave that area forever, This is our personal house which was destroyed by police and we cant adopt resident in city or other village because of our poverty, he said. He said the police then took his brother, three cousins including their brother in-law who belonged to Punjab. He added they were already flood-hit affectees and saved each penny to for their rehabilitation and reconstruction of their mud-made house, We eat when my sons earn something and when they come to home with empty hands, the whole family face hungriness, Gohar Bibi, a mother of Tilah Muhammad cried and added that the police made cruelty with them, I curse on the police and the rulers for such viciousness with them, she said they were alongwith children sitting in the open sky. They appealed to Chief Justice of Peshawar High Court (PHC) for taking notice of the police high handedness and demanded of the government for reconstruction of their burnt house and household things
Where are you and where do you report from? Do you see or talk to any of these people?
I am quite appreciative of the articles. What I would like is better insight into the people the articles are about, Most Americans have little or no idea what everyday, normal people go through or how they live in Pakistan.
All we know is what governments want us to know. I would appreciate conversation. Help me understand.
So I will ask again. Exactly where is musarratullah and does he speak with those he writes about?
yeh.. i am from peshawar , and Regi area near to peshawar
Maybe Ping list is an unknown quantity for the poster musrratullah or maybe not.
Just check his page and see where he says who he is.
Before I went and checked his page, I searched and here then is his home page,
Here too is a story written by Musrrat Ullah Jan, the person I guess we are talking about,
Following is a contact page which gives more information and even his e’mail and phone numbers.
His English is okay,
What do your friends call you? I would like to know about life in Peshawar from a personal point of view. What is normal in a day? What do you do for relaxation or fun? Is it as tense as we are led to believe?
Huh,, life in peshawar ,, i dont think so we are live , just imagine being a journalist i alway worried about blast because no one now when blast occured.. 4 time God Save me in blast. as a journalist alot of news in peshawar , because its capital of kp , near to afghanistan and tribel belt.
normal day is one blast in our province 8 to 12 killed , its normal routine.. relexation is joke for me , i don,t know may be when some day when i lose my life , that will be relex day. i have 3 daughter and i never out my daughter from home , because i am worried about sitution , so many time blast occured in bazar , so i dont, want to loose my daughters . so my 5 and 3 years daughter live like a prison in home. now u imiagine about the tense sitution...
thank u..being a journalist we were facing different type of pressure , from government side and from milltants side.. but in current sitution govt didnt allow any journalist to go to check the real sitution , some time we write story one sided. i told u the truth i meet so many time with taliban leader before operation in bara area , that is near to pesahwar . i am not scared from taliban. but i am scared from security forces.. pray for me...
Who do you think would be interested in being made ware of this info? We need to get some people over here.
I am so sorry to hear these things. I would have responded sooner, but even I need to sleep a little.
How did you start posting on Free Republic? It seems so far removed from where you are. I would like to know you better.
Your family sounds lovely. No one should have to live in that kind of fear.
It sounds like your situation is very bad and unstable there. Where do the blasts come from? Government or insurgents or both?
How can we help you? What can we do?
I am trying to generate some interest here for you. The more people who are informed, the more chances someone might have ideas how to help get your stories out.
Thank you very much for responding.
Thank you, kind sir.
You should get out of there. There’s need for people with your qualifications. Question is to where, and practical matters.
Hateful cruelty is everywhere.

I have found you many places online, Musarrat. This thread will stay as sort of a friendly meeting place for us as we get some advice from others how we can help. I will post to your other stories as well, but this thread will be the ongoing talking place.
I am trying to get some advice from people who are wiser than I about what is possible. You will find you have friends here. It’ a start.
