A passenger who is Norwegian, with her daughter, was beaten and abused by Federal Investigation Authority (FIA) officials, at Benazir Bhutto International Airport. The daughter was named Fouzia Umer, was taken to Benazir Bhutto Hospital as she passed out.
Umer, father of victim gave his statement as ”My daughters Fouzia and Fatima were leaving for Oslo on Pakistan International Airlines, flight PK-771, with their mother. After checking in, Fouzia went into the bathroom and asked a woman standing outside for toilet paper.” He added that “The woman later identified as FIA official Noshila, who lost her mind, turned nuts and said that it was not her responsibility to provide toilet paper to passengers as she was from immigration staff. Fozia asked her not to be rude but then they both exchanged harsh words” .
It was also told by the husband that the officials threatened them for not letting them board the aircraft. Umer also said that their boarding cards were torn and their passports were snatched.
He also said that CCTV footage has recorded it all but when Fouzia was beaten, there was no camera in that room and she was intentionally taken there and that was where the girl fainted.
He also told that he is surprised that a case has been registered against his wife and daughter. His ending words were “This was my family’s last visit to Pakistan and the airport had the law of Jungle”.
This was all the story that took place to the airport. One watching the video, we all have sympathies for the victim and her mother. This is completely the kind of matter that must be taken into notice at high priority because FIA and ASF have got no such rights to beat some passenger, insult them publicly. I wonder where have our ethics and morality gone?
Hats off to the people who were watching as if it was kind of some Indian drama being played at the airport and they were doing nothing to stop the ASF-lady from beating passenger. And especially the guy who was making the video, man if you are reading this, I wish you should have got some guts to not just capture but to ask people to stop that insane act by that ASF-lady.
We all know we all admit that there are two sides to everything we see. Nobody reacts without any reason. I read the comment section of where the video was posted and got to see how people are concluding on just watching the half part of the event? Do we even know yet that what actually was the reason, besides what Umer told to favor his family? And the reaction by ASF-lady was so brutal that clearly tells the reason would have been some solid kind of.

In bathrooms at airports, there are maids too. And they should be asked for toilet paper or any kind of aid any passenger need. That’s true that no aviation staff, no ASF staff and no one from FIA is bound to serve toilet papers to passengers. Asking them such favors are direct humiliation and anyone can get offended when your “tone” is wrong.
But still, the treatment passengers received and the words that Umer told are actually true, we look forward towards the officials to take this issue in the notice as this is a clear disgrace! The ASF-lady should be charged for assault if and the male staff who was just idle, looking oblivious to whats going on, they should all be sacked and the innocent daughter and mother should get justice for all the trauma that lady caused. Whatever was the cause, the ASF woman and the LEA standing and watching must be suspended for violating human rights and abusing a law abiding citizen. As we don’t want to stand such people working for our International Airlines and ruining the image of Pakistan in front of people around the globe!
