Islamabad: A woman from America has shaken the hearts and minds of the people of Pakistan. The woman’s name is Cynthia de Ritchie. She describes herself as an adventure lover, filmmaker, journalist, and blogger and is currently at the center of controversy. Cynthia, who is training in a black uniform with the women commandos of Pakistan, is an American but is living here in Pakistan and reporting here. He is considered close to the establishment.
Cynthia is caught in a fierce political mess, like the story of American David Coleman Headley, an agent of Pakistan’s intelligence agency ISI. Pakistani-American Headley (59) is serving a 35-year prison sentence in an unknown US prison. He admitted that he had traveled from Chicago to Mumbai several times to spot the locations of the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks. He also revealed the alliance between ISI and Pakistani terrorist organization Lashkar-e-Taiba.
Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) has filed an FIR against Richie for alleged hateful remarks against the late Benazir Bhutto. PPP’s Peshawar district president Zulfiqar Afghani has filed a case against the blogger at Gulbahar police station. It is clear that the ruling establishment and ISI Richie are being used against the major opposition PPP. Provincial Information Secretary Advocate Mehar Sultana of the PPP’s women’s wing has demanded the expulsion of Richie from the country due to ‘hateful and malicious statements’ against former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto.
The PPP leader said in his statement on Tuesday that Richie’s review article against the late Benazir Bhutto has sparked intense outrage among party leaders, activists and supporters. Sultana said that Richie’s conspiracies against PPP and his photographs with Pakistan’s military representatives have sent a wrong message among the people of the country. He said that Richie, who describes himself as a tourist, journalist, and belly dancer, is interfering in the internal affairs of the country by making such lousy comments about Benazir. Sultana said that Shaheed Benazir Bhutto is the name of an ideology that had made unique sacrifices for democracy and people.
Dawn has said in its report that sensationalism erupted last week when the PPP filed a complaint against Richie for cybercrime branch of the Federal Investigation Agency against former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto for ‘scandalous slanderous remarks’. The PPP advocate said that Richie in his tweet made extremely hateful and scandalous comments about the marital life of Benazir and her husband Asif Ali Zardari. Richie recently made a comment in the context of a violent dispute between model Uzma Khan and a woman named Amna Usman. Aamna accused Uzma of having a relationship with her husband and justified her violence against Uzma.
To justify his point on Benazir, Richie posted a cover page of ‘Independent Correspondence: Secret Sex Life of Benazir Bhutto’. This book written by Roshan Mirza mentions the sexual adventure of some high profile Pakistani women. Mirza wrote in it, “These women use boys to fulfill their sexual desires and the surprising thing is that these women are not from any sexual Liberal country but from a political lineage of Pakistan.”
