I don’t know why it is so hard for a girl to live safely in our society. Hearing about a girl who was recently gang raped in University of Karachi was upsetting for all the girls in Pakistan. She was raped physically but every girl, especially those from the university, suffered mentally as if they had all been victims with her. It is a well-known fact that Karachi University houses the largest number of students in Pakistan, both male and female.

The people responsible do not realize that this act has destroyed the hard earned faith parents had in the sanctity of education and educational institutions. Now, many parents would try to remove their daughters from a place which could not provide protection to the girl. Every parent wants their children safe and cared for; now that Karachi University has become a playing ground for rapists, it would be hard to gain its lost respect. The KU administration has to take strict steps against the culprits and bring them to justice. There is evil everywhere and evil deeds can happen anywhere but universities should be safe from such immoral animals.
