#JusticeForFaryal: 3-years Old Rape Victim Needs Your Voice To Fight For Justice

Another day, another tragedy!

Not too long after Zainab’s rapist and the murderer was hanged, another horrifying incident has moved the social media community. The incident is brutal enough to break any human heart and shatter any human soul. 

Abducted, raped and then her vulnerable body left in cold to die – 3 years old Faryal suffered it all. The child went missing from her home at 2:30 pm in the village of Abbottabad’s Havelian tehsil on Tuesday. FIR was lodged in Havelian Police Station and the body was found in an operation lead by Havelian DSP Ijaz.

Zainab’s and murder case erupted nation-wide protests and condemnation. Though it was among the first cases of such nature where justice was served to the victim, it certainly and unfortunately won’t be the last unless effective measures are taken on the grass root level to curb the evil of child sexual abuse – that has strengthened its footing in Pakistani society.

In Zainab’s case as well, social media played a critical role in building pressure and pushing for justice. The Twitter community is also trying to make an impact by asking for justice for Faryal and are demanding immediate action and investigation in the case.

In the year 2017 alone, 3445 cases of child abuse were reported in Pakistan. This must be kept in consideration that these stats are only for the cases reported, while many of them also go unreported due to social dynamics and stigmatization. Among them, 109 cases were of murder after the rape, showing a 9% increase as compared to the year 2016. For the provincial divide of reported cases, maximum cases were recorded in Sindh (63%), while Punjab stood second with 32%. Among victims, 89% were girls while 11% were boys.
