Report of illegal detention of two staff members of Parwaz Society

This report is compiled in response to the un-lawful and un-ethical detention of the 2 staff members of Parwaz Society on November 2, 2012 at Aziz Bhatti police station, Gulshan-e-Iqbal. Karachi. This turn out to be a quite serious situation. Below are the facts:

· The complained lodged by Ali Omer Tahir ails Sarah Gill and Riffi Khan is totally baseless and uncalled for. In their claim they mentioned that at illegal activities are going in Parwaz Society office, and misinformed the police. The complaint include the names of Kamran Anwar Choudhry, Drop In Center coordinator and Syed AkberRizvi, Monitoring and Evaluation Officer of Parwaz Society.

· The police investigation officers visited the Parwaz Society on November 1, 2012. During their visit the police persons informed that they were told that there is free sex room in the office and when they will entered the office, they will find a sign board of free sex room. The Local Project Manager and Field Supervisor of Parwaz Society give detail information about the services deliver and prevention about HIV / AIDS, and working in close collaboration with Sindh AIDS Control Program (SACP), Government of Sindh.

· The police personal informed us that due to the Kamran Anwar and Abker Rizvi have to visit Police Station to clarify the matter, and we agreed to bring them to police station on November 2, 2012.

· Around at 3:30 pm, Local Project Manager and Field Supervisor went to the Aziz Bhatti Police Station to clarify the baseless allegation of Sarah Gill and Riffi Khan. We started the proceeding in front of the investigation officer Additional SHO Mr.Farooq. LPM and FS while discussion with Sarah informed that what we are doing is for the betterment of community and should keep our personal grudges out of the services deliver of CBO and NGO.

· Sarah Gill started black mailing and use unethical practices of disclosing the identities of CBO staff and demanded in frot of the police personals, disclose the sexuality of CBO staff are they MSM or TGs, in response to her demands, LPM & FS told her that you are also rights activist of sexual minorities and attended so many international and national conferences / seminars / workshops and know the norms of disclosing the identity of sexual minorities. But instead of listening to our suggestions, she continues insisting of disclosure the sexual identities of the CBO staff. Sarah also bought the printout of the facebook page of GIA where different members of NMHA family posted their comments. Sarah and Riff both pointing out different staff posting and claim that they admitted being MSM, so they will file case against Pakistani law.

· Local project manager (LPM) and field supervisor (FS) tried with to diffuse their unethical demand of disclosing the sexuality, but both Sarah and Riffi used their pressure tactics to disclose the same. Just to close the arguments it was decided to bring the Kamran Anwar Choudhry and AkberRizvi to police station for clarification.

· The Other complain they were highlighting that Kami was sent as TG to attend the international conference, LPM and FS showed police the email sent by the organizer of the Youth Voice Count (YVC) which clearly states that kami was invite to represent the sexual minorities and it was not invited as TG represented.

· When Kami and Akber reached Police station, Sarah and Riffi, along with other TGs presents (Anjo, Natasha, Zeeni, Rani, Naseebo and Sapna) in the police station tried to provoked kami to get angry and do something harsh which will go in their favour but both Kami and Akber showed their professional attitude and remain calm and respond to their queries calmly.

· During the discussion, Kami told Sarah that think of community we are giving, and all those delivering services are saving through advocacy and behavioural change communication (BCC) in prevention of the HIV / AIDS, and also think about those HIV positive clients who are getting medications and allied services to them, instead of listening to kami’s comments, she replied she don’t care how many more people get positive and don’t care If HIV positive peoples will die. This showed that Sarah has its own personal agenda and don’t care for the right so TGs and also other sexual minorities.

· Due to the pressure of police personals and emotional and mental torcher, Kami and Akber were force to write apology to Sarah Gill and Riffi otherwise they will put Parwaz staff in lockup.

· Kami was also abused and beaten by the police personals in the police station.

· This is also the violation of basic human rights to forcefully get the disclosure of sexuality and apology.

Conclusion
After more than 5 hours of mental and emotional ordeal at Aziz Bhatti Police Station, all the Parwaz staff members were back to the office. The Staff members after the assessment of the traumatised incidence came to the conclusion that how some TGs are in the name of community creating stigma and discrimination and labelling the sexual minorities and promoting their own personal agenda. They are also crossing all civilised limits and using unethical practices and violating the basic human rights. They are also creating hurdles to achieve MDG 6: combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases.

Mark I appreciate your input. I liken the Left's poiitlcal agenda, and the hypocrisy on both sides of the table to poiitlcal schizophrenia; a poiitlcal word salad that makes no sense. The dumbfounding of Americans seems to be the ultimate goal, and appears to be working.In the 80's, I was a liberal activist, and we preached that marriage was the evil patriarchy rearing its head to gain power over all of us. Twenty years later, I'm befundled that the same activists are now pushing to belong to the evil patriarchy we so despised before.Now granted, in 20 years I grew up and became a conservative (we do all change, hopefully), yet the fervor with which the LGBT (and whatever else you wish to ascribe to it) community is screaming for the very thing we screamed against 20 years ago just blows me away. I can make no sense of it, other than my belief that they LG community really only bought into an idea set for it by the progressive movement, to find further ways to divide families and communities.First, the LG community, in my opinion, needs to stop being the dog pound of misfits. Let the T and Q communities start their own.Second, lesbians and gays in America need to recognize that they are Americans before they are homos. I don't care how many promises the Left makes to give equal rights (which never come to fruition ie; Clinton and DADT), if the country we live in becomes socialist instead of a Republic, we will be next in line for the ovens (just ask Hitler's homos). LGs should be standing up for freedom, because only through freedom will there be any.And third, there are more important battles than the M word right now; such as the right to serve this great country in the armed forces, and not face discrimination because of sexual preference.Until the community wakes up and realizes it's been duped, it will remain a community divided, with no boundaries, and no poiitlcal power save for the trojan horses offered it by the Left.

NAMBLA has been lobbying <a href="http://vjerioa.com">awhlie</a> for an expansion team into the now GLB+TT+SQQI league with a small group of insider sympathizers who are afraid of public misperception.I understand how some think the TT guys deserve a franchise, but it's a mistake. They'll only split the already small B market (think of when both the Raiders and Rams were in LA which now has no team).How those SQQI bastards jumped the queue must really piss off long-time NAMBLA boosters. I guess advertisers think new age bat-shit insane sells more beer than class A felons.BTW, the first rule of acronyms is that they should simplify the concept they are trying to summarize. I suggest extending a franchise to the Asexual crowd who, although bringing more mainstream apathetic than fringe anger, could be the largest demographic. Then you could rename the center QQ and go with the more sensible acronym: I "QQ" GAL BuTTSWhere "QQ" is the variable: L: love G: hate B: love and hate T: used to love/hate guy butts, but now love/hate Queer: 'm hip and + L/G Quest: 'm confused about guy and 2S: 'm really confused about guy and I: love unicorn, guy and NAMBLA isn't going to work into any acronym. I see why they were left out now.- JAN

cm,Don't waste your mileage, do claim them. As long as you don't take trinsat flights and your destination is in Canada, should be fine. My mum has used it for over 10 years flying from HK to Vancouver and it works well so far. http://djatbcl.com [url=http://ekbxmmzl.com]ekbxmmzl[/url] [link=http://icvpvoce.com]icvpvoce[/link]

Kole,That has happened to me <a href="http://eumhivzga.com">searvel</a> times.All I can say is that while it hurts,sometimes miserably,if the person you're in love with is really worth loving,it's possible to for both of you to love DEEPLY without sex_to have a bond that is blood brotherhood:AND to find acceptance. Equal rights,Pride[especially as the antidote to guilt,shame,self hatred] are crucial,but in an ideal world the real question about anyone's sexual orientation would be: What the F difference does it make?

I am sad to have missed the Binkies siinngg the Awful Truth. I miss you up there in moss-land. Is Jay green yet? either with envy or with moss? I am glad that the dolls are continuing to be fashion forward, although perhaps they could use fewer potent cocktails as, by the look of it, they are falling on their faces at times.

Quotes Chimp comparison chart is not intended to be a valid comparison of the companies that sell auto insurance in your area. It is an illustration only. Do not use it to determine which company you should give your busi�ness to. Beyond that, it is important to note that the comparative rating levels of the companies vis-a-vis one another will vary from locale to locale. The company that is the lowest in one area may not have the lowest rate in a different area, since companies determine their territories and other underwriting factors differently. As an illustration, Wawanesa, which had the lowest hy�pothetical rate in this example in Alhambra, had the third-lowest rate based on the same hypothetical situ�ation in Berkeley, California.
