Child abuse has gained its popularity. One after other so many cases are to be seen that raise a question mark on government practices. Do the government provide protection to our child?
This case opens eyes of a government and by taking action against the culprit according to Sec 292 (B) and Sec 377(A) culprit are unforgivable and are imprisoned to 7 years with a fine of Rs 500,000. Does Pakistan have any law related to child abuse?
Oh, come on why I am discussing child abuse cases in a country like Pakistan and is there a need to be discussed? Pakistan is a pure country that has snatchers, target killers, robbers, corruption, inflation, poverty, not sexual violation cases and there are no such cases reported in Pakistan. However, yes its right that being a Pakistani Muslim we should be embraced to discuss child abuse cases in society but now it is a crime that needs to be considered seriously.
In past 5 years, over 17,862 child abuse cases are reported among them Zainab and Kasur case shocked all the Pakistanis. It’s fall like a bomb that spread like a fire in the Jungle. A seven-year innocent child whose body found in the pile of garbage that is raped and killed.
This case opens eyes of a government and by taking action against the culprit according to Sec 292 (B) and Sec 377(A) culprit are unforgivable and are imprisoned to 7 years with a fine of Rs 500,000.
But it is not just government responsibility to provide protection to our child it’s also the responsibility of a sister, guardian and of course the huge responsibility of parents to give awareness to their child whether directly or indirectly at least teach them not to go with an unknown person even they said ‘your mama or papa is calling you’, give awareness not to be too greedy to take chocolate or gift from unknown persons because 60% of the cases were reported because of these events plus parents should provide friendly relationship with child wheater is mother or father so that child should share their stories easily and must not tell them to keep quiet even the culprit belongs to your own family.
The trust of the innocents is the criminals most useful tools
Suggestion especially to parents and guardians:
Additionally, the employee of hospitals, schools, pubs, or studio should also be ac
countable to inform the police, however, many parents hide this because of the shame that kills the right of the child. Also, the government should develop such a law that put fear in the heart of the culprit while doing any sexual activities,
also, parents, don’t become the part of this activity by hiding or not providing any sexual violence information to the state agencies or police because,” not telling any criminal activities are similar to crime”
