“From Noor To Sarah” Twitter Demands Justice For Sarah Inam
After Sarah Inam was murdered in Islamabad, celebrities and netizens started speaking against such gender-based murders online.
After hearing of the horrible death of a second Pakistani woman, Twitter erupted with pleas for justice. Among the many countless voices demanding justice for Sarah Inam are celebrities like Mawra Hussain, Momin Saqib and Mahira Khan.
Shahnawaz, the son of journalist Ayaz Amir, was detained by the police on Friday after his 37-year-old wife Sarah Inam was allegedly killed the day after she returned from Dubai, where she’d been employed.
The story is all too similar, and incensed internet users have highlighted that new Zahir Jaffers appear when criminals like Zahir Jaffer, who was found guilty of killing Noor Mukadam last year, are not sufficiently punished. They have used Twitter to demand justice while expressing their amazement, grief, and fury.
How long before we get any sort of justice for any woman who has been killed at the hands of rage and privilege. Another hashtag. Another long wait for justice. Justice delayed is justice denied. #JusticeForSarah

“How long before we get any sort of justice for any woman who has been killed at the hands of rage and privilege,” questioned Khan. “Another hashtag. Another long wait for justice. Justice delayed is justice denied,” Mahira Khan tweeted with the #JusticeForSarah.
From: “ghar basana hai toh bardasht toh karna paray ga.”
To: “Aray toh uss ko dekh ke shadi karni chahiye thi.”
The complete burden (and blame) of sustaining an abusive marriage, even if it costs her – her life, ALWAYS lies on the woman in our society.#JusticeForSarah

Kanwal Ahmed, a famous blogger, commented on how women are always held accountable at the expense of their life to voice their horror, grief, and rage while requesting justice for Sarah Inam.
Today, as we read the news about Shahnawaz Amir murdering his wife—spare a moment for the rightful rage of Pakistan's women, who are still convincing its men, and the state, that there really is a problem with how they are treated in the country. #justiceforSarah

In response to women’s “rightful rage” over how they are oppressed in this country, a Twitter user called the issue of Sarah Inam into question.
While we haven’t still achieved #justicefornoor & many many others, here’s another appeal for #JusticeForSarah
Heart broken, may Allah give patience to their families to deal with such gut wrenching tragedies!
— MAWRA HOCANE (Hussain) (@MawraHocane) September 23, 2022
Mawrah Hocane emphasised that Noor Mukadam is simply one more of the many women for whom we have yet not seen justice served. She wrote, “Here’s another appeal for justice for Sarah. Heart broken, may Allah give patience to their families to deal with such gut-wrenching tragedies!”
From Noor to Sarah and all the unreported victims of heinous crimes across the country. This is a bitter reflection of core realities, which proves the alarming need of strict legislation against perpetrators!#JusticeForSarah – May there never be another hashtag for any human!
— Momin Saqib (@mominsaqib) September 24, 2022
Momin Saqib, a content producer, urged for tougher laws to be applied to those who commit such crimes and expressed the hope that such hashtags would never again exist.
So many questions about why Sarah, a solid 10, chose Shanawaz, a two time divorced human red flag. Without knowing the details all I can say is, have you ever heard how people talk to women past 35? We’re ‘too old’ for single men our age so society tells us to compromise.

Anyone who wonders why the dead opted to marry this guy at all has an answer thanks to this user. There is an unbelievable amount of stress on women to marry early because if they don’t, the suitor will be the one who takes them. This pressure is in addition to the fact that individuals don’t come with warning labels or red flags out displayed on their faces.
Just found about the disturbing incident. Men who are afraid of independent & successful women, are not men, they’re cowards. Noor Muqaddam’s family still didn’t get justice. I hope this doesn’t get delayed as well. @TararAttaullah please do something 🙏🏽 #JusticeForSarah pic.twitter.com/KJUdVaTQX3

Internet users are expecting that this time, unlike many others, justice won’t be stalled for Sarah.
“Men are afraid that women will laugh at them. Women are afraid that men will kill them.” This quote goes to the heart of the inherent inequality & injustice of our patriarchal society. #JusticeForSarah pic.twitter.com/GhvsflfrLd
