OMG!!!!!! i remember this, i'm pretty sure i saw a dodo about it!
It took 15 years to get justice for the this poor soul who was violently raped & who's family was horrifically murdered!!
Because they are part of a Muslim minority group in this hell-hole!!!!

May you now sleep peacefully Bilkis!

But Bilkis Bano is NOT just a victim -
She is a SURVIVOR, and this is demonstrated by the way she has not given up in her determination to see justice done.

A victim is crushed, defeated, kept down by victimhood - a victim's life & perception of the world is blackened by the fact of having been made a victim, their life is driven by fear & hate.

A SURVIVOR does not allow themselves to be crushed and driven into that deadly "victim" hole, box. A Survivor works to take back control of their life.

Kudos, Bilkis - a survivor who has already made a difference for so many victims who've been unable to move beyond their "victimhood". it's been a long fight, a large chunk of her life - but she's come through head high.

Noted. I'm feeling relieved for Bilkis Bono. Anyhow, violence can' t be forgotten, it remains stuck in your mind.
It'll be terrible for her to think of the people she lost. At least a woman has received justice this time(many other times it doesn't happen).
Thank you Dandelion for what you have posted.

" They say that justice delayed is justice denied. In this case, one cannot say that justice was denied. Justice has been delivered, yes, but at what cost?"

This case will help others in the future. I can be held up as a benchmark. I thank her for her courage in spite of the difficult and long odds she faced. May we all be as strong in whatever challenge we have before us.

Please note it, that the political party that ignited the communal violence ruled over only Gujrat at that time. The same party is now has the entire nation under it's autocratic rule. And we are dreading a rerun of the show,not concentrated to one small province but this time it will engulf the whole country.
