On 10th january 2018,a 8-year old girl name Asifa Bano was abducted ,raped and murdered brutally in Rasana village near Kathua in the Indian state of Jammu & Kashmir.

According to police report , 8 men abducted her and tortured her for 7 days till her body which was discovered on 17th January 2018 in a dismal condition. A complain was lodged by Asifa’s father Mohammed yosuf on 12th January as her daughter went out 2 days back to look after the grazing horses but never came back. On 17 January 2018, the dead body of the victim was found and taken into custody by the police to allow an autopsy to be conducted. The postmortem was conducted by a team of doctors at the District Hospital in Kathua at 2:30 PM on the same day.

The examination by the doctors found that the girl had been drugged with a sedative before she was raped and murdered. Forensic evidence suggested that she had been held for several days and had been raped multiple times by different men, and that she had been strangled to death, as well as hit in the head with a heavy stone. On 22 January 2018, the investigation of the case was taken up by Crime Branch and Crime Headquarters Jammu and Kashmir. A statement released by the police listed seven individuals who had been arrested and charged over the crime, including four police officers. A total of eight people have been arrested . Two of the police officers were arrested on suspicion of attempting to destroy evidence, and also stand accused of accepting money to cover up the incident. One of the accused claimed to be 15 years old, though a medical examination later suggested he was 19. Sanji Ram, one of the accused, was described by the police as having devised the plan of kidnap and murder.The chargesheet against the seven adults accused of the crime was filed on 9 April. The accused were charged under Sections 302, 376, 201 and 120-B of the Ranbir Penal Code. When the charges were filed in April. A widespread protest hit the nation and demand of capital punishment for the criminals were voiced all througout the nation.The city of Kolkata also showed there compassion and voice against the henious crime that happened against that little girl. From students to seniors to every part of society joined hand to demand and claim for suitable punishment for the criminals.

I was there documentingit all. Kolkata city which is known as city of joy,who when time demanded became a City in Protest. Various NGO’s joined and took to the streets with banners and slogans to protest against the atrocities that happened against Asifa Bano. The incident resulted in widespread anger across Jammu and Kashmir with few people trying to gain some ulterior motive in the name of politics and religion. Right-wing Hindu groups staged protests against the arrests of the accused individuals, who are all Hindus. Two ministers of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party, Forest Minister Lal Singh Chaudhary and Industries Minister Chander Prakash, attended one of the protests. One of the protesters told The New York Times that the arrests were “against our religion”, and stated that the protesters would burn themselves if the accused were not released. While attempting to file charges against the accused on 9 April, the Crime Branch police were met with protests from lawyers in front of the Chief Judicial Magistrate’s office in Kathua. The lawyers were protesting in support of the Hindu Ekta Manch, and tried to prevent the charges from being filed; the chargesheet was submitted eventually, after police reinforcements arrived. This support for individuals accused of rape led to widespread social outrage. Kolkata showed the exception where even the mens joined hand in protest against the hypocrisy that was happening in J&K. The young generations were not far behind as students from many renowned universities of the city joined the march in protest. Students of Presidency University organised a Lantern march through the city demanding punishment against the accused.

Prime Minister of India Sri Narendra Modi stated “I would like to reassure the nation that none of the guilty persons will be spared. Justice will be done. All of us will have to work together to end this evil within our society,” The trial for the Kathua murder and rape case began in Jammu and Kashmir on 16 April 2018 before the Principal Sessions Court judge, Kathua. The second hearing is scheduled for 28 April 2018. The Supreme Court have sought a response from the Jammu and Kashmir government regarding shifting the trial to Chandigarh by 27 April 2018. The judgement still pending….

Turin; You Do Not See by Riccardo Surace

The project titled What You Do Not See, Unordinary tells the story of the City of Turin, my city, seen through the eyes of passersby. All photographs have been captured with a long exposure technique; in other words, I mixed then history of the city with my own history, my life experience. In fact, after five years spent fighting a disease, my artistic purpose is primarily that of representing the all too familiar feeling when, as a young man wandering through the city, one feels invisible, and yet still he is thoroughly involved in its daily frenzy.

Fragments by Anne-Marie Giroux.

Fragments is a project within a project. Since 2020, I have been working on an installation project entitled Drifts Drifting Phase II which will be presented at Espace Produit Rien in Montréal in April 2023. The installation proposes a questioning of human and artistic drift, theme that I have been exploring since 2014. Adopting a critical and mocking approach on the relevance of the very essence of the art object, I also question the relevance of being an artist, and particularly, the relevance of being a woman artist.

I like to think of my Great Uncle Moszek hovering  somewhere between floors 8 and 12 of Nalewki Street  9 in the Warsaw ghetto. It is a safe place, this imagined placement of his body. Down below the streets of the ghetto are not safe. A German soldier has been killed and revenge is about to be sought. Boots are  heard on the ground, moving ever closer to number 9.
