  • Minor girl brutally raped, killed and dumped in trash in Kasur

Leaders of all political parties condemned the incident and sought justice for the minor girl.

Eight-year-old Zainab Ansari was raped and murdered while she walked to her Quran studies class in Kasur, Pakistan, on 4 January 2018. Adding that: "If the police would have acted immediately, the culprit would have been caught".

The parents of the minor were in Saudi Arabia to perform umrah when the incident occurred. She had been staying with her aunt. The inconsolable parents have said that they will not bury their girl until justice is served. "This is why I am sitting here with my daughter".

The culprits have even been identified but the police has not made any progress. They were armed with sticks and stones, and were calling out authorities to deliver justice for the victim.

Following the violence and increasing global attention in the case, the hashtag #JusticeForZainab began trending worldwide, and famous Pakistani figures including Nobel Peace Prize victor Malala Yousafzai and members of the national cricket team joined a chorus of disgust at the crime.

"We want justice. We want the culprit to be brought in front of us". Pakistan's Army spokesperson Major General Asif Ghafoor tweeted "COAS condemns cold blooded murder of innocent Zainab".

The Govt and Concerned security institutions have to act swiftly to punish the guilty and ensure that children are better protected and the government must be mindful of its responsibility to protect the life, honour and property of the masses.

"The horrific crime perpetrated in Kasur is devastating". The gang allegedly abducted and sexually assaulted 280 children and blackmailed the families of some victims since 2009. My prayers and heartfelt sympathies with the family.

"This. We need to start talking about sexual abuse openly".

Massive protests have erupted in Pakistan over rape and murder of a 7-year-old girl Zainab Ansari; her body was found on Tuesday near a garbage dumpster, roughly two kms from her house. This has to stop.

The Senate Standing Committee on Interior also took notice of the incident and ordered the Punjab police to take swift action.

And the hashtag #JusticeForZainab has been trending in Pakistan, India and the UK.

Seven-year-old Zainab, who was raped and murdered by an unidentified person, was laid to rest amid tears and grief at the Khawaja Sahib Graveyard in Kasur on Wednesday night.

They are all protesting because they feel unsafe. And campaigners have been demanding reform for long enough.
