Justice for Zainab


Justice for Zainab: Heartbreaking, heart-wrenching and disturbing; these words and nor any adjectives can testify the intensity we as Pakistanis and as humans feel post the murder of the 7-year-old Angel, Zainab. A scenario that brings chills down our spines; Horrifying. The girl who had a bright future was forced towards the bright light. Zainab was abducted on the 4th of January 2018. The seven-year old was walking towards a nearby house for Quran Studies. Her body was found in a garbage dump on the 9th of January. The postmortem report deduced that she had been possibly dead 2 days prior to being found. The body also revealed that the young girl was raped and strangled by her captives. A CCTV footage was broadcasted that showed the last sightings of Zainab walking with a man; who is the main suspect of the case. The face of the man is blurry thus his identity is still unknown. The child’s parents were out of the country for Umrah. (Zainabs Rape and Murder Case and how to protect our children from child molesters) (Justice for Zainab)

In Pakistan we are used to hearing news of people being robbed, murdered, raped, kidnapped etc. But cases such as Zainabs rape and murder are eye openers. This is an all time low for our governing system and an all time low for criminals as well. What sick mindset would the killer or killers possess that they are able to carry on with such  horrendous acts. Do they fear the All Mighty and our law? Cant their sexual urges be kept in check by their wives or by hiring a prostitute, the act seems completely satanic and the culprit seems to have zero compassion and emotion on every accord. When these people would be caught, the question that they would be asked is “what if this was done to your daughter or sister?” and they would give the obvious answer, but I feel the horrific reality is that these deviants already sexually abuse their own family members (Zainabs Rape and Murder Case and how to protect our children from child molesters) (Justice for Zainab)

Current Scenario of rape and Murder Cases in Pakistan

Children in Pakistan, from both privileged and underprivileged backgrounds are under constant threats. The young minds may be prone to some of the following issues:

  1. Child Labor
  2. Child Marriage
  3. Dowry issues for young wives
  4. Kidnapping
  5. Human Trafficking
  6. Slavery
  7. Molestation
  8. Rape and Murder

It’s a shame and we all are to blame for it, the politicians as well as us civilians. We are supposed to provide a firm background that our young ones may cherish. Let’s talk about the main Elephant in the room, because of Zainabs rape and murder case, our ill ways have further highlighted, things that should have been dealt with in hindsight are now coming out as realizations.  The current scenario of child molestation shows how we have failed to give a bright future to the future heirs of our country. The question we need to ask ourselves why are we just becoming aware about these facts and figures after a young girl lost her life, If these things were given stern attention before maybe Zainab would have been greeting her parents when they came back from their Holy pilgrimage. Sahil a NGO from Pakistan has collected data which proves that at least 11 cases of sexual abuse of children are reported on a daily basis. The focus here is on reported, many cases are not reported so the figure is most probably understated.  Sahil also states that 1764 cases of child abuse were reported in the first six months of 2017 (Desk, 2018).

  • Sindh: 490
  • Balochistan: 76
  • Punjab: 1089
  • Khyber Pakhtunkhwa: 42
  • Federal: 58
  • Azad Jamu and Kashmir: 9

74% of the reported cases are from rural areas and there has been a 10% increase in children being sexually abused in Urban areas. 45% of the culprits were acquaintances of the children while 17% of the total accused were strangers. 15% of the victims suffered in their own vicinity, whereas 12 percent of the victims were sexually abused at the culprits place. Sexual abuse of children by landlords has had a massive increase.  Sounds horrible doesn’t it, and the sad thing is that there has not been any significant action taken to set an example and such outrageous acts are escalating (Zainabs Rape and Murder Case and how to protect our children from child molesters) (Desk, 2018).

  18. It was revealed by a very credible journalist, Dr. Shahid Masood; Imran Ali is just one of the people responsible. Dr. Shahid gave proof that this case at hand is not just about an innocent child being tortured, raped and murdered; it is about a global violent child pornography business. Imran Ali’s profile put forward, does not seem to be true as per Dr. Shahid. Further investigation is underway.
