Women’s Parliamentary Caucus expresses concern over Kasur incident


Islamabad:  Secretary Women’s Parliamentary Caucus, MNA Shaista Pervaiz Malik has expressed her deep shock and concern at the rape and murder of a seven year old girl child, Zainab, in district Kasur.  “This is yet another dreadful example of prevailing paganism, perversion, and frustration that our society seems to be beset with! The child’s rape and murder is absolutely unforgivable,” she said in a statement issued here Thursday. 

“We cannot tolerate any more such victimized Zainabs and this has to be put to an end at social, legal and judicial fronts. Everyone has to assume their respective responsibilities to eliminate such vices from our society. Legal frameworks, judicial activism, and parameters for access to negative websites and media would have to be reviewed.

I promise that we, as women parliamentarians, will go to any extent to ensure that any loose ends within our legal frameworks are tied, implementation of legal frameworks and access to justice is guaranteed as a corporate responsibility, and that our basic social, cultural and religious values are restored,” she stated. –Online
