Wife of Faheem says she expected verdict

May 3: Yasmeen Ansari, wife of Faheem Ansari who was acquitted by the court on Monday said that she had expected the verdict. Yasmeen said that the police had framed Faheem and couldn’t stand their ground on the false case.
“We have been saying this right from the beginning that Faheem has been framed in the case. We were always sure that he could not be involved in something like this. Our prayers have finally been heard by God and we are hopeful that he would be accepted in our society as well,” she said.
Faheem’s brother Usman, who attended court proceedings on Monday, said that there was no case against Faheem. Usman felt this verdict would also weaken the Rampur Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) camp attack case. Usman refused to comment on whether the city police had framed his brother. “We don’t want to get into all that,” he said.
“Ansari and Sheikh should be released from prison if they are not wanted in any other case,” Judge M.L. Tahiliyani said while reading out the operative part of his judgment.
Faheem’s defence lawyer R.B. Mokashi said that judge’s order clearly indicated that Faheem was framed in this case and that the evidence produced in court was fabricated.
Yasmeen thanked slain defence lawyer Shahid Azmi and lauded efforts of current defence lawyer R.B. Mokashi. When asked if she slept well last night, Yasmeen said, “Ab hum chain ki neend soyenge (Now we will sleep peacefully),” Yasmeen also said. “We were all very disturbed when he was arrested. We were poor and had no support other than God. An organisation called the Jamiat-ul-ulema-Hind supported us when our own family members had turned their back on us. Maulana Harshad Madani had appointed Shahid Azmi as the defence lawyer. He handled the case very well. After his death (in suburban Kurla on February 11), the organisation appointed lawyers R.B. Mokashi and Khalid Azmi.”

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
