Sad Week in Ranui

May 22, 2014 at 10:32 AM

As you will no doubt be aware, Farhat Rana Malik (Rana) and her daughter, Sidra Noor Malik, were found dead at their home in Ranui on Monday. Rana was an active member of the Ranui community, and was involved in the Ranui Action Project as well as the Waitakere Ethnic Board and Pakistan Association of New Zealand. Her estranged husband, Ishrat Malik, appeared in court on Tuesday, charged with murdering his wife and daughter.

This morning, WAVES Trust Manager Tiaria Fletcher was interviewed about the deaths on Radio New Zealand National. You can listen to the interview here.

Below is a further selection of media articles.

Dead woman had protection order

As mentioned in our newsletter yesterday, we will be initiating some conversations over the coming weeks and months about how we can best work together to address some of the unique challenges that are faced by ethnic communities around family violence issues. If you would like to be involved in these conversations, please get in touch. Events such as this impact on the whole community, and we all need to be engaged in thinking about solutions. Your contributions are vital in this process.


In other tragic news, Josh Roach was shot dead in Ranui on Wednesday, with another young man also shot and in serious condition in hospital. Although there is no evidence that these two events are linked, they will both impact significantly on the wider Ranui community.

Our aroha goes out to the families and friends impacted by both events, and to the wider Ranui Community. Kia Kaha.
