Sudanese Activist Recalslls her Rape Story by NISS Agents (Video)
Safia Ishag Mohamed, Artist and human rights activist, was kidnapped and detained on February 13 by two Sudan agents of National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS), taken to a house in Khartoum North, where she was brutally beaten and raped by three men who penetrated her successively. Safia was virgin and might be circumcised. Imagine the physical and psychological pain she had endured.
As a young woman, graduated last year from the Fine Arts Faculty, University of Technology of Sudan, her dream was to continue making exhibitions denouncing tribalism, ethnicity and woman subjection to males' laws. She was on her way to buy color pencils and papers for illustrating her dreams and drawings, when she was forced by her kidnappers to enter a car and treated the way I mentioned above.
"I tried to interview her". Succeeded in registering a great part of the interview. Though at that time, she was devastated, ruined and cried all time. I succeeded to make half the way. She is now in a safe place where people near her helped her to raise her head, make her voice heard, face the public and send a strong message to the government.
Safia wasn't the first to be exposed to domestic violence officially supported and backed. There are others who participated in the January 30 demonstrations and were victims of beating, detained and called dirty names by the National Intelligence Sudanese Service (NISS). But Safia was the first to go public and tell the story of her rape in the capital Khartoum, not far from the Republic Palace where the president's office found.
Safia is an artist and member of Girifna (Got Bored), a political youth organisation, recently formed to oppose this regime and raise people's awareness of their rights.
Till I prepare the whole story of this exceptional creature, please pray with me for Safia and admire her courage!
