Childe abuse incidents that took place in Kasur were harrowing and have sent tremors across Pakistan. This is only one incident that is debunked by our vibrant media. There are several such incidents that are being done covertly in other parts of this country but are not being reported.

To prevent such horrendous and sinister acts in the future, child abuse prevention acts must be promulgated with teeth and stern punishment and public awareness be made in this regard.
