Storyline

In modern Pakistan, Ghulam Fareed lives a poor lifestyle in Meerwala along with his daughter, Mukhtaran Mai and son, Shaqoor. Meerwala is a village without any roads, schools, a Police Station, or even electricity. Girls' marriages are arranged when they are barely 12 years old. During March, 2002, Shaqoor allegedly molests a girl from the Mashtoi family, who live next door. The local Panchayat meets and decides that Mukhtaran must also be molested by males of the Mashtoi family, accordingly she is raped by about 14 men. Shunned, hurt, confused, devastated, she makes her way to the Police Station to file a report against this rape. This is where she will find out that it is not easy to find justice in a country that has been ruled by men and the military for eons, where the woman is still considered a possession - when she does well, she lives up to the family's reputation, but when she does bad, she brings shame to the entire clan.

An Update About This Incident
21 April 2011 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

On April 21, 2011, the Pakistani Supreme Court freed 5 more men accused in this incident. The ruling has left just one male suspect out of the 14 that were charged.

Initially a lower court acquitted 8.

Then during 2005 an appeals court acquitted 5 of the 6 remaining suspects.

This is another glaring example of Pakistan's justice system. It has a very low rate of convictions due to the authorities catering mainly to the rich and politically well-connected.

This can well be compared to the present state lack of enforcements of 'human rights' in 'developed' countries' like Canada.

Victims like Mai have lost faith in the 'justice' system' and are fearful of reprisals from the suspects and their supporters.

Kalyug indeed!!!
