Doctor Afia's arrest and disgraceful treatment at Bagram Jail is a black spot for the Muslims of Pakistan and Afghanistan who claim to be respectful of womenfolk. Her tormentors showed no shame. Reading about her ordeal, one is reminded of the historical event when Qadir Roheela had made Mogul princesses dance in front of him while he pretended to sleep with his sword out of scabbard. None of the princesses had the courage to pick up sword of the sleeping despot. Where were our great politicians, army generals and leaders of Jihad when the foreign usurper defiled the daughter of Pakistan, Doctor Afia? -GANGLY KHAN, Mandi Bahauddin, via e-mail, August 8
