Shahzeb Khanzada leaves Bangash speechless:

GEO News anchor Shahzeb Khanzada targeted some rigid questions towards Bangash over the controversial move. Shahzeb stressed that how did the government reach the conclusion that it is the fault of the girls and forcing a dress code

Bangash, however, failed to answer every question posed his way. He said that it has been made mandatory by ‘religion’ and they are proposing an ‘Islamic’ solution to the problem. However, Khanzada maintains that the priority should be holding the harassers accountable, effective legislation and implementation, not defining dress code for young girls.

Shahzaib is absolutely correct, what should be done with boys ! boys are rapped too – what should be done for it – the maniac people should stay free – why don`t government catch few people from 100 of cases and hang them in front of people so that – no one dares to do that – our girls are our responsibility as a whole – its not like your sister is unsafe from me and my sisters is unsafe from your safe – every sister should be safe – no mater what dress they wear – they should stay happy freely ! and we all should protect them. its simple!
