Shireen Sardar enters the saga of Farah Dogar’s Honour Killing
It seems the story of Farah Dogar’s murder which surfaced over the Internet two months ago refuses to go away. Ever since the story broke a number of evidences have emerged along with numerous emails commenting on the incidents related to the honour killing story. So far not a single news outlet has commented on the story. This delay on refuting the honour killing story is cementing the belief that there really is something afoul. It is may be this feeling which is leading many to write and comment upon the murder story.
One of the most interesting of the emails which I received commented on one Shireen Sardar. According to the email Shireen Sardar is a senior journalist at Reuters and was able to meet both Ex-Chief Justice Abdul Hameed Dogar and his daughter Farah Dogar in the last week of March. She claimed to have interviewed both of them. The news of her interview was the primary reason which put a sudden break on the spread of the news of Farah Dogar’s murders.
A couple of weeks later, another piece of news broke over the internet that Farah Dogar had died in Malaysia, because of her injuries and her father was arrested over her murder in Kuala Lumpur. This piece of information is in complete contrast to Shireen Sardar’s claim. The question that now arises is whether Shiree Sardar is lying or the story circulating the web is another piece of fabrication. Again, there is complete silence, this time from Shireen Sardar.
Shireen Sardar who had put her reputation at stake by declaring to have interviewed Farah Dogar when everyone was claiming she had been murdered and added to that the claim that she had interviewed Ex-Chief Justice Dogar when everyone else was claiming that he was in jail on murder charges, has now become the central figure of this story. And when she is asked about the honour killing incident, surely the most important question for her would not be whether she had interviewed Farah Dogar or not but how was she able to interview the Ex-Chief Justice in Islamabad while he was held up in a jail in Malaysia.
Of course there is the possibility that the entire story of Farah Dogar’s honour killing at the hands of her father is a fabrication to malign the Dogar family. But the excruciating delay in denying the story and complete absence of the story from mainstream media are further fueling the rumours.
