The number of victims of child sexual abuse and molestation grows each year in Pakistan. In 1997 one child a day was reported as raped, gang raped or kidnapped for sexual gratification in Rawalpindi and Islamabad. In 2010 a total of 2, 252 children were sexually abused throughout the country. In 2012 a total of 4,543 abusers were involved in abusing 2,252 everyday. Almost 67 percent of the cases were reported from rural areas whereas 33 percent were reported from urban areas. In 2014 a British channel's documentary highlighted the sexual abuse of street children, an estimated of 90% children have been sexually abused. There are 1.5 million street kids in Pakistan and more than one million are the victims. These reports are shocking and repulsive to the core. The scale and extent of the abuses are unparalleled.

One of the biggest scandals of Pakistan may be the worst child sexual abuse scandal in the country's history. In which 400 video recordings were found showing more than 280 children being sexually abused & most of them are under 14, thousands of copies of the videos are believed to have been sold from Hussain Khanwala village in Kasur district, for just 50 Rupees. If reports are to be believed then in some videos victims are forced to abuse each other. One of the child exposed "they beat me, drugged me then molested me & they said if you tell anyone we‘ll kill you." This case came under media's attention when parents protesting against the police's failure to arrest the gang responsible for the abuse clashed with police officers in Kasur. "Everyone in this village is a victim, Our children both boys and girls and black mailed." said victim's mother. Only six people have been arrested, while the main villains are still free to do whatever they want. Who will do justice to them?

If so far only the Kasur child abuse scandal has been exposed, it doesn't mean that this heinous crime is not in the other parts of the country. Child abuse is rampant in Pakistan, everyone secretly admits that it is a problem, but no one ever discusses it.  Even spreading awareness and creating prevention against these vicious acts is considered shameful. This is one of the leading causes of suffering amongst the children. Why have we become so insensitive? Will we stand up against it after our own children go through it? No, this is the time to speak against the country’s biggest crime! This is the time to show concern for our country and for our children’s future. This is the time to protect their innocence.
