The latest string of
verdicts handed out by the superior courts in Pakistan convey the message and a
kind of impression that the judicial system in being politicized. The superior
courts particularly the incumbent bench under the sitting chief justice Mian
Saqib rightly or wrongly emits a feeling as if the chief justice and members of
various benches have tilted in favor of some politicians and against the
others. Otherwise how is it possible that only former prime minister Nawaz
Sharif is the only and the leading criminal and culprit and therefore is the recipients
of the sentences from disqualification to p0ssble jail terms.
Nawaz Sharif and his
cohorts while in power and the family members might have committed egregious
financial corruption including flight of the wealth from Pakistan to overseas banks
However, it is unbelievable that others in power corridors are not involved in such
scams and should be immune from the judicial actions and retributions.
There have been quite a
few cases of mega-corruptions, making of assets, selling and buying costly properties,
taking grafts and fattening wealth in Pakistan as well as abroad. Yet it seems
that they are being treated like the holy cows and untouchables for
questionable reasons or grounds.
There have been mega
cases of moral, ethical and financial misconduct by many business tycoons and prominent
politicians. Yet they are roaming untethered in the length and breadth of Pakistan
and free to make foreign tours and remain busy in political arena. In their
cases, the judiciary looks the other way and have either refused to entertain
those cases or those cases were put in a limbo or dismissed summarily. I am not
taking names lest I might be branded for taking sides.
But the glaring fact is that
there are holy cows from among the politicians who enjoy all the liberties and privileges
besides their foul mouthing yet they are at large and being treated as innocents.
How long such brand of selective
justice would remain in vogue. Could there be possibility or an outlet by which
the dispensers of justice can also be questioned about their partisan conduct
while dealing with the top-notch politicians and power holders in Pakistan.
Amazingly of late, the
incumbent chief justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar has assumed also the role
of an administrator and is making appointments and giving jobs to the individuals
on his how volition. He is also making surprise visits the offices, the market
places and bazaars and issue orders for arresting someone on the spot for some
kind of violations. Those officials who have been sacked remain high and dry
and without any legal recourse. Someone among these people may like to
challenge the Chief Justice on his spot decisions. But there is no way or legal
recourse through which the giving of jobs or sacking the individuals in the
public places by a judge or even the Chief Justice can be challenged.
Such kind of arbitrary, spontaneous
street justice was done by the Kadis (religious ombudsman) in the Islamic
countries in the past. They were
appointed by the kings, caliphs or the despots to nab those who were disobeying
them or involved in over- pricing or hoarding etc. This kind of justice was
also prevalent to take cover under the religious canopy to sustain a kind of
justice that didn’t offer a defense by the perceived offenders. Those people
were also lashed in public view.
As such the incumbent head
of the Supreme Court in Pakistan has opted for himself to be a Cadi or Qazi of
the olden times and award punishment to those he deems as law breakers. This latest
primitive mode of justice adopted by the protectors of law runs in the very
face of a government and institutions that are formed through a constitutional
process and functions in a civil society.
The task of the superior
or junior courts is to interpret law in such a way that it doesn’t look
partisan and dominated by the personal liking or disliking of the judges and magistrates.
The justices and judges don’t have to roam about the locations and issue orders
on the spot for poo civic services or streamlining the traffic etc.
The formulation and the
interpretation of law is of paramount significance for a nation state (not
Islamic or despotic) like Pakistan. It is not desirable for the members of the
judiciary to become roll-coasters. Instead these luminaries ought to advise
about the betterment of laws for the efficient working of the departments such as
local governments, lower courts, police, education and medical, law and order
and to curb corruption etc. Unless and until there is no overhauling of the departments
and their administration betterment, then on the spot or surprise checkup or punishments
would be ineffective.
There is a dire need to strengthen the court
and the institutional system rather going out in the public by the judges to
administer justice and award punishments. This is an encroachment upon the
mandate given to the respective local bodies and departments. Such departments
can be the local governments, which are mandated to look after the markets,
check the prices and adulteration, educational institutions and
On the other side, how
can justice be delivered in a country where murderers and rapists get away with
payment of the blood money or reconciliation with the aggrieved party? This
reconciliation is imposed, more often than not, on the victimized party by
threats or intimidation. In other instances, a payment as compensation is
settled with the harmed side and the courts acquit the villains.
It means that anyone with
a heavy purse and a gun can shoot anyone in broad day light and prevent the due
process of law by undercutting it with payment of money. The perpetrators of
heinous crimes like murder and rape are usually goons with lot of money and
therefore laws can be bent if they can pay for blood money. On the contrary a
poor guy who injures or even kills someone cannot have such an escape route and
therefore languishes in jails for years and finally to be hanged or awarded
We have seen that in
myriad criminal cases a roughneck forced the weaker party to come to terms and
bargain to let the offenders walk their way. Not long ago a high-profile murder
case hit the headlines for pretty long time. The flamboyant and defiant son of
a super duper feudal along with his equally roguish buddies killed a police
officer with impunity. The principal culprit was given death sentence but was
later freed after paying the settlement amount with the aggrieved party.
I have been reading about
a flurry of such court settlements in which the persecuted party was coerced to
state before the court not to pursue the case because they had either pardoned
the offenders or had accepted the retribution by way of a handsome amount of
There are various glaring
factors that hinder the swift, condign and deserving punishment to the
criminals and outlaws. It is seldom and unheard of that any rapist even proven
was ever punished by a court. The lacuna is the presentation of four witnesses
by the female victim as evidence. The production of this evidence is like
asking for the moon. As such all the rapists and womanizers remain immune from
the grip of law whether it is civil or the Shariah court.
For the aggrieved party
it is absolutely imperative to produce the witnesses who had seen the crime
being committed. First of all, it is a tall order for the persecuted party to
find out the witnesses because most crimes are not committed in public view. Even
if there are people who were onlookers or present at the crime scene they would
not pick up the courage to come forward voluntarily or otherwise to be
witnesses for a variety of compelling reasons. They would be aware that they
would remain under a perpetual spell of fear and paranoid as long as the case
is not decided.
Secondly, the cases on
our courts take years from start to the end. The witnesses have to appear on
each hearing before the court that disrupts their jobs, and other activities of
life. One would not wish or prefer to be caught in a grinding gridlock at the
cost of disturbing their life and peace of mind. In the courts a witness is
harassed, ridiculed and even humiliated by the defense counsels each time for
hours. Any individuals even with strong nerves cannot stick to a statement
verbatim each time as the prosecution or the defense make every effort to find
out contradictions to prove the witness as a liar.
The aggrieved party hires
the false or professional witnesses on payment for each appearance in the
court. He has to bring them fully protected, take care of their traveling
expenses and food etc. Most of the witnesses that are produced in the courts
are therefore not genuine.
The evidence is taken after
adjudication of case for a pretty long time. By that time even if there were
real eyewitnesses would forget the real scenes, the directions, the timings,
the faces and blah blah asked by the intimidating and aggressive lawyers. If at
all witnesses can be helpful in the trial of a case then on the time of writing
FIR their statement should be recorded or at the first appearance of the court.
But even in this situation the witnesses cannot get rid of the subsequent
appearances in the court that can prolong indefinitely.
But writing of an FIR is
a highly technical and legal job. It should not be entrusted to the minions of
a police station. In Pakistan getting in an FIR written is a tough ordeal. The
FIR is written after settlements of bribe or under the orders from the high
ups. The FIR is mostly tainted, written in jumbled up Urdu language and would
favor more the stronger party or wealthier parties than the weak or the
Now the police official
who writes an FIR is summoned by the court and he would remain under a constant
burden of being questioned by the court and the hostile counsels each time.
There should be several cases for which he should be summoned when needed to
put up the official outlook. Is he a computer to dish out the correct details
about each case and each time?
In the face of all these
stumbling blocks and irritants for dispensation of speedy and fair justice, I
suggest the following corrective measures:
Changes should be brought
about in the legal system that should encourage more litigants to use an
expedited court process, as opposed to arbitration.
The writing of an FIR
should be handed over to the trained magistrates who can have his or her office
within the precincts of the police stations or an independent office adjacent
to a police stations.
The FIR registration
officer should not hesitate or defer the writing of the FIR. Even an FIR from
both sides can be recorded.
A time frame should be
fixed for every case to be adjudicated and verdict announced even if it is to
be done on daily basis.
The condition of
producing witnesses should be dropped as it does not serve the actual objective
of dispensing justice because as explained above, in most case the witnesses
are paid and hired to appear and briefed what to say.
circumstantial evidence and forensic findings should be considered enough
evidence. The Witnesses are usually produced mostly in criminal cases present
at the time of occurrence of crime. In case of civil suits like property, money
transactions the witnesses are mentioned on the written deals. In such
cases the tainted or tutored evidence fed by a lawyer may not work.
In case of witnesses, the
parties concerned should bring them along at the time of reporting the case or
on the first day in the courts. They should be questioned by the lawyers on the
same day and then liberated from future appearances. The FIR or reporting
center should remain round the clock.
We have seen in Pakistan
that despite incontrovertible evidence captured in a video or Television
coverage, the justice is delayed and law is not allowed to take its course. So
primarily it is the mindset of the judge, the tricks of the attorneys and the
faulty system that delays and determines the outcome of a case irrespective of
the merits. As such strict honest and rigid ethical uprightness should be the
yardstick in the appointment of judges. The review committees or the appellate
courts should have the authority to criticize and even fire the judges whose
conduct looks suspicious, biased or unprofessional.
The colonies and dirty cabins
of the lawyers and sellers of the official stamps or documents around the court
buildings should be disallowed. Instead of operating from the makeshift booths
they should be lodged in proper offices and the court authorities should check
their working conditions. The touts around the court premises should be barred
from pursuing their nefarious role. The stamp papers sold by the contractors
can be even counterfeit. These should be replaced by the court fees and other
official charges to be directly deposited in a bank or in treasury. In America
the fees are collected by at counters located within the court premises.
Our court buildings are
rundown, broken stairs, with walls full of dirt and stains of betel nut (pan).
The design of the court buildings has to be changed so that in one building all
the relevant courts can be accommodated. Designs and plans of court buildings
can be copied from the United States or western countries. We have seen these
buildings to be immaculately organized, clean, dignified, functional elevators
and the court rooms fitted with all the modern gadgets and facilities like
fountains of drinking water. We can make similar set up in Pakistan.
It would also be in order
to send out jurists and judges and other members of judiciary to witness the
courts proceedings in advanced societies. There is a dire need to streamline
and update our justice and judicial system in Pakistan that presently looks a
mockery and negates the dispensation of unalloyed and true justice. Besides
court rooms should have sitting facilities out, security and water fountains
In one of the counties in
Texas, USA I have seen around 30 courts in one building for different hearings.
There is no noise or din or chaos anywhere. There is county, municipal and
the immigration courts. There are no touts or people shouting at each other around
the courts with broken benches and seats. There are no separate colonies for
judges as we have in Pakistan. Judges live like ordinary citizens in the
cities, drive their own cars and attend the courts. The judges are always in
the radar or under the watch for any kind of misconduct.
Mobile courts and not
individuals should be established to catch the culprits on the spot and award
the punishment. These courts can also deal with the eradication of social evils
as theft of power, adulteration, rape, cheating, false documentation, maltreatment
of the citizens in the government and private departments and similar felonies.
These courts can make spontaneous decisions or refer the cases to the higher
courts. That would serve the imperative of swift justice and save the litigants
from the big hassles and unnecessary spending.
The mobile courts have to
be equipped with the appliances as computers and small labs for testing the
adulterated food items on the spot. If swift legal action is needed then it
shouldn’t be the chief justice but magistrates with a posse of police force who
should make surprise visits in all the bazaars, shopping areas and restaurants
to check the prices of food items and announce punishments on the spot. They
can visit also the hospitals for spurious and expired drugs, used equipment etc
or for unhygienic conditions or negligence by the hospital staff. The
electricity and water thieves can be awarded punishment on the spot in front of
the other officials touring with a judge or the magistrate.
The rapist and molesters
should never be allowed to escape under the Hadood laws or for being
influential persons. The eyewitnesses’ condition is irrelevant and unreliable.
The forensic and DNA evidence can conclusively determine as to who committed
the offence or the crime.
Even otherwise the
victims, their families and the people in the area know about the culprits and
perpetrators of the crime. So, on the spot all information and evidence can be
obtained that takes years for the lawyers to establish and still in many cases
the culprits walk away unpunished.

By Saeed Qureshi
My heart bleeds for my
countrymen living in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. I am confounded why they
have to suffer so much. The country is in a state of complete paralysis. The
people are caught in a trance of bewilderment as if they have been bewitched or
are under the spell of evil spirits. The life in Pakistan for the teeming
majority is miserable.
Pakistan is not in
Africa yet the life is no better than that far flung continent, used by the
human traffickers to provide raw manpower for nascent America. Africa has
remained steeped in pathetic quagmire of ignorance, humiliation and
degradation. The black pigment was touted by the cunning and diabolic white
masters to be a symbol of slavery and sub-human species.
But Africa is in the
throes of a gradual awakening. Despite intrusions and civil wars engineered by
the colonial masterminds, the African countries are demonstrating signs of
resistance against the latest western onslaughts to keep them subservient to
their economic interests.
Africa is replete with
untapped natural resources. From Sudan to the ultimate brinks of western
Africa, a wave of self-realization and self-dignity has started sweeping. The
despicable, polygamous and lecherous monarchs are in a state of retreat.
The change is visible
in empowering the people and forming representative governments. It would be
too early to expect a miracle or rapid switch from autocracies to unalloyed
democracies. But the change is in the offing. Africa’s future is glorious.
Africa in the next century, by cautious reckoning, would be studded by modern
states with their concomitant features such as adult franchise, the dignity and
power of ballot, the monumental economic milestones, the establishment of
The so called
Dark Continent would take giant leaps in education and healthcare, the cure for
diseases, the prosperity in place of poverty and hunger and the realization of
the most cherished goal of creation of civil societies. So much for the
hibernating and slumbering Dark Continent not in terms of the color of the
people but by the atrocious and pervasive decadence of millenniums.
Pakistan a modern
state carved out of the Indian subcontinent for the Muslims to live a peaceful
life is receding into a cesspool of suffering for its people. It is a society
where hunger, grinding poverty, spiraling insecurity, aberrations of
unemployment, pollution, crimes, civic mess, injustice, stalk the land.
For six decades of its
existence it has remained caught up in an unremitting and swelling decline. One
wonders why this country in the reverse gear of progress is. Whatever hope and
modest livable conditions the people initially had, are fading.
I do not have enough
endurance in me to see the heart-wrenching scenes of people aimlessly wandering
in the streets with the agony and stress writ large on their faces because of
the nightmarish power outages and interminable blackouts that invariably take
place many times round the clock.
It would be
superfluous to enumerate the debilitating fallout of power breakdowns on the
human mind, psychologies, moods, sensibilities and resistance of the people. A
nation is turning paranoid with twin phobias: one about the uncertainty of
electricity’s coming and the second about its going. Add to this frightening
situation the burgeoning terrorism and killing for extortion that have snatched
their peace of mind.
Of late, on the
television, I have seen crowds of people sleeping in the open spaces, on the
roads and pavements in a state of anguish and helplessness and under a specter
of looming insecurity. A nation is sleeping in unguarded places to beat the
stifling suffocation, unbearable heat and humidity of the sizzling summer in
summer and biting cold in winter without caring for the bomb blasts, target
killing, robbing at gun points and rape.
Just imagine the
degree of despondency that is breeding indifference to even one’s own life. I
am talking about the human miseries and not the colossal commercial and
industrial losses and its disastrous ramifications on the national economy.
The school going
children from the poor families starve and cannot have enough food to eat. They
do not have access to easy and safe transportation to reach their schools and
colleges. The ramshackle, stuffy Suzuki vans and clumsy buses lacking proper
seats, or such necessary comforts as heating or air-conditioning commute
between destinations with passengers perched on top and on all sides. The young
kids both boys and girls are exposed to falling off or sitting in the company
of vile individuals.
The streets and roads
are full of nauseating stench and pollution of animal refuse, the smoke
emitting and shrieking vehicles, the overflowing sewers and open drains choked
with filth and garbage. The ancient cities of Pompeii, Baghdad, and of
Pharaoh’s eras were even much better in civic management than the cities of
The offices, the
bazaars, the houses, the lanes, the shopping centers and the space between sky
and earth, remains covered with the thick layers of smoke and dust that wards
off oxygen and obstructs the breathing in a fresh and pure air.
The young kids from
the indigent families cannot afford education and therefore have to work in
workshops as apprentices, conductors in public transport and on similar menial
jobs. The budding flowers of the nation remain vulnerable and easy targets of
molestation and abuse by their masters.
religious seminaries present the worst scenarios. It is hard to believe that
the students residing in these fortified religious citadels would be safe from
the abuse of their sturdy custodians. They lose the significance of moral
dignity, propriety and inviolability of human body.
They fill their
stomachs with the charity food sent or donated by others. When they grow up
they themselves, in the footsteps of their molesters, continue that loathsome
practice with the students under their morbid supervision.
Barring the costly
bottled water, no water is safe for drinking in Pakistan. Most beverages are
adulterated. Most food items are not pure. Can one imagine that in the water
scarce areas of Pakistan, the humans and animals drink alike from the same
highly polluted pond filled with rain water? No wonder they develop deadly and
The runaway children
from starving families roam and loiter in cities to be seduced or forcibly
whisked away by hardened sex offenders or by the heartless criminal gangs or by
those who would keep them in forced bonded labor or sent for bomb blasts
The women are targeted
and raped with willful abandon. There is no recourse or remedy for them to seek
justice. The police catch the people sitting in public parks, take grafts
forcibly or lock the citizens for no reason. The women in police custody or
other law enforcement agencies seldom come unscathed from sexual abuse.
There is a one-page
official form called FIR (the first investigation report) cannot be written
unless the SHO (the station house officer), commonly known as inspector agrees.
The format of this form was prepared during the colonial rule and still no
change has been made in that. Writing of an FIR comes on a heavy graft or on
the order of a dignitary.
The process of justice
from FIR to the final outcome takes countless twists and years making a mockery
of the legal system. The judges, the magistrates, the lawyers, the touts in
between are engaged in a vicious game of catching the justice system on the
The scale of corruption, bribery and financial scams is
alarmingly widespread. The malfunctioning in every government department with
corruption as the leading vice is no secret at all. The addiction of making
illicit buck and exploiting the voiceless citizens is in the veins of every
person in an authoritative position, be it a small clerk or a member of the
parliament or even the ministers, prime minister and president of Pakistan.
research, social decency, a tolerable civic life, and a civilized environment
are all far cry in the chaotic and perennially troubled Pakistan. The religious
preachers keep their eyes closed on country’s deformities and real fiendish
They push the people
towards the age of barbarianism and primitive cave life and force them to
perform rituals and meaningless traditions devoid of real spirit of religion.
The Religion has become a robust and ensured means of exploitation in the name
of God and fear of hell and pleasures of paradise.
Let me take a break to
compare this abysmal spectacle with the societies where people enjoy civic and
social peace. Let us take the American society. This comparison should, in
fact, be deemed as a contrast. The first glaring hallmark is the order and
discipline that runs in the arteries of this society, like the healthy blood in
a human body. The law is equal and stringent and is for all.
The laws are humane
yet inviolable and operate within the limits set by the society and the
constitution. There is no large-scale infringement of the law but if there is,
the law ultimately prevails. Everyone from the president, to senators to
congressmen to governors is exposed to well-integrated and efficient network of
oversight and accountability.
The detractors or
cynics may like to point out the social freedom that they call moral laxity as
a stigma on the western societies. But choice to enjoy is left to one’s own
discretion as a part of human freedom and is observed in very strict
conditions. By comparison the vice is more rampant and beyond law in our
societies than what one can observe in the United States.
It’s my observation
that in USA the violators are vulnerable to condign punishments. The pub, clubs
and selling of liquor are prohibited near educational institutions. Smoking
inside the dwellings, the offices and in restaurants is completely banned.
There is no or insignificant nepotism, no culture of graft here.
From getting a driving
license, mowing a lawn, seeking a job, the construction of a house, to setting
up of a factory, there are hard to bypass yet easy to follow regulations. If
you qualify you will get the needful done readily. There is a portfolio of
social security nuts ranging from the healthcare insurance to old age benefits,
to free food, to unemployment allowance to pro-bono (free) legal service. The
rights and obligations in this society go hand in hand.
The utilities and
public amenities from the supply of clean water to electricity, to drainage,
seldom malfunction. The services such as payments of bills, mail distribution,
requesting emergency health or security help are dispensed immaculately.
students, both either by virtue of low income or academic excellence, there are
funds available. The environmental purity is so jealously guarded that
literally, not a blade of grass can grow or removed without the prior
permission of the city government.
This is not to deride
or belittle my own country of origin in any manner. What I wish to drive home
is that we can transform our societies into people friendly societies with
reasonable order and creation of safety nuts for the people. What is lacking is
the intention to do so. The privileged, the elite and the aristocratic classes
are above and immune from the sea of suffering of the common masses in
With slick cars, the
palatial mansions, the hand folded army of the servants, high profile jobs,
money minting lucrative business at their disposal; these blood sucking
segments in Pakistan are least bothered about the people teetering on the brink
of colossal human tragedy, poverty and deprivation.
As such, let there be
an all-embracing Civico-Social revolution. Notwithstanding the moot question as
to who will lead this revolution, the movement for change can be spearheaded
and sustained by the civil society upholders, the conscientious yet valiant
individuals, the NGOs, the educated segments and individuals, the
intellectuals, the rebellious, the zealous, the students and all aspirants for
assemblage of proponents for change should mobilize the vast majority of
underdogs like ordinary workers, the impoverished peasants, the victims of
police and institutional injustices, the teachers and all those who want an egalitarian,
welfare and a civic cum civil society.
They should come out
of their homes and trigger an earth-shaking upheaval for their rights to live
as equal and honorable citizens. They should besiege, waylay, and chase the
power wielders, the privileged thugs, the corrupt and immoral government
functionaries. They should assail the houses and mansions of the rulers and
decision makers, snatch their cars, houses and force them to open their coffers
of wealth to be distributed among the needy public.
A people’s revolution
is desperately called for: not like a socialist or communist revolution but a
genuine grass root raucous shake-up that should compel the imperial and
licentious minority classes to behave. It’s time for the people of Pakistan to
shed their helplessness and raise a hurricane by snatching their rights to live
a life brimming with, order, dignity, equality, freedom, justice,
accountability, civic galore, and with the radiance of a civil society.
The oppressed classes
should mobilize themselves for a society where molestation of a minor carries
life imprisonment as in the United States of America, where justice is
inexpensive and accessible and where worship of God is free for all faiths. Where
the judges of the superior courts don’t take sides and become partisan for this
side or that side. This is what peasants of France achieved in 1789 known in
history as the French Revolution.
By Saeed Qureshi
is an unremitting flurry of gory incidents and happenings in Pakistan about the
molestation of minor children both boys and girls. The most diabolic dimension of
this most and despicable crime is that the heinous perpetrators not only
dishonor, molest and rape the innocent and helpless children but either kill
them to eliminate the evidence. If they deist from killing they frighten to
retaliate if their victims tell anyone about that most insidious crime.
In 2015 a ring of satanic individuals in the
Pakistan’s city of Kasur dishonored a staggering number of 280 very young boys
and girls. How in a bustling city a group of devils had continued their
diabolic activity is a question that intrigues and bludgeons the mind. The
whole country had gone through state of shock and shame. Since Islam ordains
three witnesses to prove the crime, they must have been left at large after
is yet to be seen how that how this tragedy and moral cataclysm of all times is
going to be dealt with by the authorities in Pakistan. The whole country is in
a state of grave shock and utter grief. There seems to be a callous lukewarm
response from various official quarters that seem to be pushing this incident
into a labyrinth of rules and regulations and eyewitnesses and so one.
A child at the stage of puberty or adolescence, not to speak of minor boys
or girls of tender age have neither the sense nor the muscular power to withstand
and resist to protect their honor. Just feel their helplessness and
utter lack of defense while surrounded by these human hounds forcing him or her
to commit the sexual act. We have seen i with anger and tearful eyes in the
video made by these devils the way rose like children being disrobed and
tormented by foulest of means.
During the past we have seen in the ghastly
television clips, the dead bodies the tender female children between 5 to 10
years who died from sexual brutality of a street shopkeeper, a religious tutor
of Qur'an or normal teacher in a school or roughneck thugs way-laying students
going to or coming from school.
Even there have been countless incidents in
which a neighbor raped an innocent child who had come to meet his or her friend
from the adjacent house. Due to the nature of disgusting act or for fear the
children cannot disclose to their parents the ugly incident that would haunt
them and hang on their mind for the rest of their lives.
The latest case
that has been most painful, distressing and diabolic is that of Zainab who was
not only raped but was killed to erase the evidence. Like Zainab and other
countless minor girls and boy become victims of the savage rapists every now
and then but cannot speak out for fear or the shame that is inherent in such
ghastly incidents. The killer rapist as been caught and the Lahore High court
rape and murder last month had sparked outrage and protests across the country
after the six-year-old, who went missing on January 4, was found dead in a
trash heap in Kasur on Jan
Ali Naqshbandi, accused of the rape and murder of Zainab in Kasur, has
confessed to raping and killing at least six other girls as well. Lahore High

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. The abuse was uncovered in 2015 and a
number of suspects were arrested.
most vulnerable among the children are those who go or sent by their elders to nearby
vender for cigarettes, eatable or grocery or other similar
items.it depends upon the morality or conduct of the street shop-keepers and
kiosk owners to call the buyer children inside the shop, close it for some time
and do their satanic crime. In many
cases the child even may not be aware as what gross perfidy was done to her or
him. The culprit may give them some sweets or cookies to keep quiet and
secondly to come again for a satanic deal.
such incidents in which the heinous molesters were caught because of the news
broken by the child or due to body injury or the death as a result of odious
act. We have seen on the television that among those who were caught there were
elderly and bearded white collared perpetrators.
for the young and innocent children who go to the house of neighbor also become
the victim of molestation by a married or unmarried young boy or an adult.
Those children who are sent to the house or school for after school time
coaching also fall prey to rape and molestation by the male tutor. Such
incidents are not reported by the perpetrators and the victims. However, in
later part of the life some of the children may fall into the habit of
passivity or by was homosexuality, company or dope and intoxicants. They may
also turn into molesters as a matter of revenge or just by habit.
is therefore imperative that the parents never send their boy or girls to
corner kiosks or vender. Nor should they
send them alone or unmarried tutor for additional coaching after school hours.
Even if such a tutoring is essential the wards and adult member of the family
should escort them and wait by the side till such a coaching or tutoring is
should also be ensured that a child is not alone at night as a guest with
someone who is not close or nearly relative. It is absolutely imperative in
case of young girls who can become the victim if such a barbarity even by a
near relative or a friend or acquaintance.
sending them to neighborhood vender should never been contemplated, also don’t
send them to main markets alone for buying anything ranging from toys to meat
or fruits and vegetables. Please never send your wards who are innocents to
market place where they can fall victim to the lust and animal desire of
if you want your children to be safe from the molestation and becoming victim
of sexually pervert religious teacher. We are aware that many such despicable
acts taken place in the residential religious school or hostels. At night the
young boys become entirely at the mercy of bearded young or the middle-aged
custodian or warden. These boys feel no compunction in what a religious
instructor did to them. In return they do the same when some of them enter the
religious realm and take charge of the food, education and custody of the
children who are sent to such institutions either because of poverty or
religious teachings and knowledge.
the western societies particularly in the Scandinavian countries the
homosexuality and marriage between the same sex is permissible. The gay
community is protected by the law to do whatever they like to pursue by way of
sex. In several countries including United states and United Kingdom, the gays
and transgender person can join the army.
the eastern societies with brand of Islam or religion shirk away from such
pursuit which in the advanced and western societies is considered as the civil
rights of an individual be it male or female they way they want to spend their
transgenders there is no way-out to satisfy their carnal urges that
meeting each other and indulge in pursuit of fulfilling their sexual urge.
have read that in primitive societies the sex or courtship with males by the
dominant individuals or even between the counterpart was rampant. This we know
that many civilizations doomed who were in the habit of male prostitution by
the divine curse or otherwise.
young school boys who proceed for a sight-seeing, educational tours or the
outdoor pleasure trips fall in the habit of homosexuality or become their
victims of their guide from school and institutions. This can be exclusive to
the male boys. As far girls there cannot be courtship between them but that
liberty gives them to talk and indulge in activates less than actual intercourse.
internet and cell phone has opened an unlimited and unremitting reservoir
of sexual and carnal stuff and scenes and visuals to the whole generations
whether, male, female, young of adult a minor boy or a girl. No check can be
mounted on them by viewing that part of cell phone or even YouTube r other

such we should focus on inculcating a sense of caution and awareness among the

and what was wrong. What should be views in the cell phone and cassettes and
videos. To give a cell phone to young boy or girl is sure recipe and blank

is imperative and urgent to award the maximum sentences and penalties to the
perpetrators of molestation of the tender and young boys and girls. If the
victim is alive let the culprit sent to the jail for a few years. In case of
death and injury taking place or willful murder of the sexual victims, a
summary trial and with full proof they should be either sent for life time
sentence or sent to gallows. That is the only way to eliminate this most
heinous crime of molesting young boys and girls who would be not only innocent
and unaware of what was being done to them.
The civil society should come out up in arms
and with an unremitting spell of protests and agitations till such time that
not only these sex maniacs are sent to hell and a foolproof system is put in
place for definitive stoppage of this loathsome crime and ensured retribution
to the monstrous sex offenders.
