Subject: Let us get justice for Nadine Murshid

Dear Sir,

This is to inform you that Nadine Murshid, a former lecturer of Brac University and daughter of economist Dr. Khan Ahmed Sayeed Murshid, was subject to assuault, battery and rape by her husband, Sajid Huq, in the State of NY during the period of August 29 to September 23. She sustained injuries to her face and body and a case has been filed against the perpetrator in NY County (Docket Number: 05103-2007).

Since the filing of the case in NY, the perpetrator's father, Mr. M Janibul Huq and grandfather, former IG Rakibuddin Khandaker, have been threatening and harassing the family of Nadine Murshid. They have filed fraud cases against not only Nadine, but also her parents and sister in an effort to mount pressure on them to drop charges against Sajid Huq.

We, the citizens of the civilized world, want to see Nadine get justice and thereby we are requesting you to have the fraudulent charges against Nadine's family revoked and help them in any way possible.

This is a typical case of domestic violence among many Bangladeshis both in and away from Bangladesh. If we let one perpetrator get away, we will let all of them get away, because women will never come out in the open, they will always fear the repercussions. If other victims see that justice is served, we, as a nation, as a nationality, can address domestic violence in a way no one ever has. Please let Nadine have a fair trial in the US. Please let wife-beaters and sexual predators know that people will not stand by them, no matter where they come from, who they are. This is something we owe to all our women.
