Pakistan Zainab murder: Girl's father speaks of devastating grief

Pakistan: Rape and murder of Zainab Ansari sparks deadly riots in Kasur amid hunt for perpetrator

MULTAN-The activists of different civil society organisations organised on Thursday a number of protests in different areas of the city and rallied at Chowk Nawan Shehr to condemn the rape and murder of seven-year-old girl Zanaib in Kasur.

Holding her daughter in her arms, anchor Kiran Naz delivered an emotional speech on January 10 to protest the rape and murder of 7-year-old Zainab.

An autopsy has confirmed that Zainab was strangled and sodomized and suggests she was raped, the medical officer who carried out the examination, Dr Quratulain Atique, told CNN.

However among all these, a group on Facebook kept on mocking Zainab's rape and Murder case which is highly condemnable.

On January 10, protests had erupted in Kasur after Zainab's dead body was found in a garbage heap.

According to Aftab a parent or a guardian should interact with their child carefully if they suspect a change in routine, attitude or behaviour.

This has led to public outcry, with protesters demanding justice for Zainab.

Ansari was abducted from outside her house where she was staying with her relatives while her parents had gone to Mecca to perform Umrah. News anchor Kiran Naz of Samaa TV, a Pakistani satellite news channel, brought her young child onto the air with her.

Senior advocate Ahmad Raza Kasuri earlier claimed that the suspect responsible for the rape and murder of Zainab in Kasur case has been arrested.

The protests continued into Thursday, with Kasur police spokesman Muhammad Sajid saying protestors had "thrown stones on the buildings of the government hospital, police and deputy commissioner's office". In a stirring monologue, she went on: "In this country we've entered into a odd time - someone is martyred, and it's taken as no big deal".

Her mother also told reporters: "I have nothing to say, I just want justice for my daughter". They have also smashed vehicle windows with sticks.

Regardless, this still highlights how the issue of child abuse is growing in Pakistan.

Kasur district was previously at the center of a child sexual abuse scandal in which a gang of up to 25 men was accused of blackmailing scores of children into making sex videos between 2009 and 2014. He called for the government to implement legal trials for victims. An FIR was also lodged against the killing of one of the victims of police firing, Shoaib Islam, at B-Division police station.
