Another day, another tragedy – however, today, we need to mourn two. Shazia Zafar, a 13-year-old daughter of a shopkeeper and 5-year-old Gul Sakina are the latest reminders that Pakistan has completely failed to protect its children against sexual abuse.

System has failed

The system has failed to protect children against sexual abuse. However, one after the other, minor girls and boys are kidnapped, sexually assaulted, killed, and thrown away – while we continue to be desensitized to the tragedies.

Sadly, even if the culprit is caught, they do not receive the punishment they deserve. The criminals how their privilege, that even if they are caught, they will get away with it.

A few days back, an 11-year-old girl from Sukkur was raped in a mosque by her Quran teacher. Rather than getting justice, she had to face the horror of Karo Kari and her family was threatened and beaten up.
