Whenever incidents of child abuse are mentioned across the country, memories of Zainab, a 6-year-old girl from Kasur, whose father raised his voice to seek justice for his daughter, become fresh in our minds.
This innocent girl named Zainab was raped and killed, but Zainab was neither the first nor the last girl to suffer such incidents, because unfortunately such incidents have been going on for a long time in our country and have not ended until now. now.
A 10-year-old girl drowned in a swimming pool in Manawa district of Lahore. She was dead when she arrived at the hospital. The parents alleged that the girl was murdered after being raped. A protest also took place placing the girl’s body on the ring road.
It should be noted that cases of rape of children and girls are on the rise in Pakistan. Economic problems lead to crime, but child abuse is not a crime that can be linked to financial problems.
Although the media uproar is another matter, shouldn’t innocent girls who were raped and killed by strangulation or with a sharp instrument, their parents or loved ones also protest? And if the media transmits his words to power, is it a crime?
Another worrying thing is that the cases of children whose cases are made public by the media also take months to get justice and sometimes even after years there is no decision in the case.
Earlier this month, a deaf girl was also raped in Lahore. Last month in Peshawar, the accused who killed the girls after the rape was also arrested, who confessed to the crime.
IG Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Moazzam Jah said the accused is in the grip of the law, we arrested him from Cantt division. The serial killer tried to kill 3 girls after raping them, 2 of whom died.
The police and other law enforcement agencies are doing their job to prevent further crimes, including rape and murder. It is necessary for society to abandon its outdated traditions, unnecessary timidity and avoid reporting crimes and ensure crime prevention.
