Domestic Servant girl tortured and denied meeting parents by employer

Domestic servant girl tortured and denied meeting parents by employer A Christian girl named Sumbal Masih daughter of Sardar Masih aged 15 or 16 had been working as a maid in house at, Model Town, Lahore for two years along with her younger sister Sadaf Masih and a cousin named Rabiya.

On 14th September 2012, Sumbal was watching T.V in the owner’s room. Suddenly the owner came and started beating the poor girl for watching movie. They beat her so harshly using pipes or iron rods.Afterwards they took her to the washroom and tortured her over there terribly. She was yelling badly and crying for help. This entire incident was reported by Sumbal’s cousin Rabiya.

When Rabiya and other servants heard Sumbal crying for help, they ran upstairs to help her but the owner took Sumbal to the washroom and sent Rabiya and other servants downstairs therefore they could not find that what they did with Sumbal.When Sumbal’s parents came to know about this incident through Rabiya, they ran to get their daughters back but the o wners said that Sumbal has fled from their house and they don’t know anything about her. They are not even giving Sadaf the second daughter back to them.

Our legal team is looking after the matter and hence Our lawyer and the mother of the girls Basheera bibi went into the house of Mr. Adeel bearing house number 132-J block model town Lahore to get their daughters . Our lawyer  forced to sit in the lawn of the house whereas Baseehra bibi was taken inside by Mr and Mrs. Adeel after two hours waiting outside our lawyer came out and call the police. After the intervention of the police Basheera Bibi and her second daughter Sadaf bibi was released by Adeel.

Our legal team has filed a petition in the session court of Lahore for the rescue of a Minor girl Sumbal Bibi. We therefore request the Hon,able Chief Minister of Punjab to take notice in this regard.

Farrukh Saif is a Pakistani human rights activist based in Germany. He founded his own organization, the Farrukh Saif Foundation (FSF), in 2009 with the goal of supporting marginalized and oppressed minorities in Pakistan who are affected by religious discrimination, blasphemy laws, forced conversions, abductions, rape, and bonded slavery. The main focus of the FSF is on the liberation of bonded laborers, particularly those working in brick kilns in rural areas of Pakistan. In 2018, the FSF merged with the US-based Emergency Committee to Save the Persecuted and Enslaved. Throughout his career, Farrukh has been a leading voice for the rights of minorities in Pakistan and has gained international attention for his campaigns against the misuse of blasphemy laws and the belief that asylum is not a crime. In 2014, he played a key role in the release of hundreds of asylum seekers from Thai jails and has worked with his legal team to save numerous victims of strict blasphemy laws in Pakistan. Farrukh has also been invited by the Hungarian government to discuss his work and the issues he addresses. In addition to his work with the FSF, Farrukh has also been involved in various other humanitarian efforts, including providing health care services to internally displaced persons in Khayber Pakhtoon Khawa in 2009 and assisting flood victims in Sindh and Punjab in 2010. He has worked to aid victimized minorities in Pakistan and has a strong track record of successfully advocating for their rights. Farrukh joined forces with Keith Davies in 2018 to co-found the Emergency Committee to Save The Persecuted and Enslaved, and since 2009, they have collectively successfully rescued more than 36000 individuals from slavery and persecution.
