RAHIM YAR KHAN:-Mukhtaran Mai, a social worker, demanded that the cases of gang rape should be tried in the military courts to ensure significant drop in such attacks on women across the country.

She expressed these thoughts while addressing a press conference at Press Club along with her husband Nasir Gabol and Advocate Rukhsana Piya. She said that in Pakistan, the women had to face discrimination even daughters and sisters are not given their rights in inheritance. She added that police register cases with wrong sections after taking bribe. In cases of oppressions being faced by women, judiciary should take strict action against corrupt police officials.

She appealed to the people to actively take part in the public welfare programmes. She said that her organisation was currently running 3 schools and a shelter home in Mirwala, Muzaffargarh where poor girls were provided with education.–Staff Reporter
