vagina monologue from the land of the pure

dear chief magistrate:*

have a feeling
you have no ears
or heart

for the one
beneath whose feet
your prophet said lies heaven

for you
is lust
or sub clauses

your suo motos
are laughable
and agenda driven

your are one of them
effectively overlooking
not seeing
nor noticing
travesties in your domain
(soommun boookmun....)

am i bitter

the world knows
my brother sodomized
the world knows
their deflection
the world knows
what the panchayat declared

the mixed sperms
in my vagina
played havoc

still do
in my mind


sitting in your ensconced chambers
wearing black
you ignore the turmoil
and highlight the sub clauses

this violated vagina
shall prick your conscience

should prick your conscience


you had ears
my screams would echo
for ever

and when you lie down
nightmares of your daughter
suffering indecencies
will haunt you

this is my prayer
and curse

* am not addressing you o Allah. that'll be another time

In fairness and for full disclosure: you should also read Mukhtaran Mai: the other side of the story by Bronwyn Curan

As the author of a 2006 book on the Mukhtaran Mai case and a former Islamabad-based Western female news correspondent, I must raise a voice of dissent amidst the shrill reaction to the Supreme Court’s acquittal of 13 of 14 men accused in Mukhtaran Mai’s case.

In 2005-2006, after many months painstakingly poring through every police statement, medical record, witness testimony, and cross-examination transcript in this case, coupled with multiple visits to Mirwala, Jatoi and Dera Ghazi Khan for extensive interviews with members of both sides of this case, I reached the same conclusion as the Supreme Court has in 2011.
