ISLAMABAD  -A woman has requested the President of Pakistan, Prime Minister, Chief Justice of Pakistan and Chief Minister Punjab to help her and provide her justice.
Naila Bibi, who has been living in Saidpur, Rawalpindi, with her two daughters, told The Nation on Tuesday that due to her husband, Ch Muhammad Rafiq Gujjar, the police and local political leaders of the area had made life of her and her children miserable.
According to Naila Bibi, her husband Ch Muhammad Rafiq had divorced her five years ago. She then filed a civil suit in a court of Rawalpindi to get maintenance allowance. She said that despite the court's order, her husband was not paying children maintenance allowance to her.
Naila has done graduation from Punjab University and had been teaching in the school but now due to her ill-health she could not work anymore. She explained that landlord of the house, where she was living with her daughters, had cut the water supply-line and had asked the neighbours not to give water to her. She said that though she has been paying rent Rs 7,000 regularly but he wanted her to vacate the house. Naila said as there was no male in their home; therefore, she and her daughters have to fetch water from far-flung area.
