  • A Little Girl's Murder Has Sparked Protests in Pakistan and Online

Kasur witnessed protest after body of Zainab was found in a garbage heap on Jan 10. At least two people have died during violent clashes between police and protesters. They demanded that the culprits be arrested and sentenced to death, The Express Tribune reported. "How was our child kidnapped from a busy market?"

Judging by the massive public outrage, spontaneous, emotional protests and strong statements made by various politicians and public personalities, it seems like Pakistan is in the throes of a moment that could have consequences as far-reaching as the 2012 Delhi gang-rape did in India. COMPASSION lists it as a global societal issue that comes in many forms for children living in poverty - sexual, physical and emotional and includes neglect, exploitation and child labour. "You still find people who consider it inappropriate to speak to children on topics of abuse", he says.

"Any effective response [to the issue] has to be multi-pronged and must include interventions such as more effective and specific legislation around sexual abuse of minors. It involves resource allocation, sensitisation and training of law enforcement agencies, health and legal officials, as well as child protection information for parents, schools and children themselves", Rashid told DW.

There have been scores of similar cases in this region of Pakistan, including 12 in the a year ago within a less than two-mile radius. "Zainab's case is just the tip of the iceberg", Rashid said.

Test cricketers Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Hafeez and Wahab Riaz tweeted that it was unbelievable that this brutal incident took place in Pakistan.
