This is about heart-rending news of child rape that are published daily these days. Children as young as 4 to 14 are being raped everyday somewhere in Pakistan. May be we have gotten used to such news now or have no shame. But what about the victims, their families and their traumatic lives afterwards? I request the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court to give a ruling for punishment of this crime to be given out publicly. Only through exemplary physical punishment administered publicly can we fight this menace? -MRS. MASOOD, Lahore, September 5.
