Bilkis Bano speaks: ‘Trusted highest courts, faith shaken, give back right to live without fear’

“Undo the harm” and “give me back my right to live without fear and in peace”.

Breaking her silence for the first time after the release on remission of the 11 convicts who were convicted of gangraping her and killing 14 members of her family, including her three-year-old daughter, Bilkis Bano said on Wednesday that she was “bereft of words” and “still numb”.

In a statement, issued by her advocate Shobha Gupta, Bilkis said: “Today, I can only say this – how can justice for any woman end like this? I trusted the highest courts in our land. I trusted the system and I was slowly learning to live with my trauma. The release of these convicts has taken from me my peace and shaken my faith in justice.”…
