Will CJ Iftikhar Chaudhry take ‘Suo Motu’ action against Rabia Imran
The CCTV footage of assault on poor bakery employee by the Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif’s daughter Rabia Imran is making round over television and internet. In CCTV video of Hijab wearing woman clad in yellow dress is shown threatening a young bakery employee to serve her or face dire consequences. The Hijab wearing woman was identified as CM Mian Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif’s daughter Rabia Imran who apparently went to shop to buy some bakery item like cake etc. When young man working in the bakery told her to return back later around 3:00 pm when bakery will be open, Rabia got angry and threaten the poor guy by pointing figure on him several times. Later her driver came back with plain cloth man escorted by Elite Police force personnel, identified the guy and starting beating him severely. They also took him away for more torture.
Rabia Imran got poor bakery boy severely beaten for only doing his job as required by his boss. This incident shows the arrogance and haughtiness of the ruling elite who consider common man nothing but their mere salves born to obey them. But this time luckily the whole episode of brutality was caught on tape and was picked up by Pakistani news channels. The bakery employee was identified as Irfan and bakery name as Sweet Tooth Bakery situated in posh Defense Housing Authority (DHA) Lahore.
As the video was constantly rolled by the news channels, CM Mian Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif had to take notice and issue some orders. Instead of taking action against the main culprit his daughter Rabia Imran, he ordered the arrest of Elite Police personnel. It is quite apparent from the CCTV video that Police has beaten the poor bakery guy on the instruction of the Rabia Imran. But sources say that no arrests were made so far. It was also reported from unconfirmed sources that Geo TV has managed to interview the beaten up young guy and the bakery owner. It was also speculated that Khadim-e-Aala (CM Shahbaz) has used its influence to stop the publishing and airing of the said interview. In Pakistan, such incident happens on daily basis where the powerful elite class and influential people abuse power and brake laws blatantly. It would be interesting if Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry take ‘Suo Motu’ action against Rabia Imran and get poor bakery employee some justice. The violence in this incident is similar to Waheeda Shah’s cruel slapping incident. Waheed Shah had stormed into polling station and started slapping the female polling staff to influence the polling process
