Sexual abuse of children has heightened at alarming levels in Pakistan. Every year, thousand of children fall prey to sexual violence including rape, sodomy, and incest. Most of the victims are murdered by the rapists to conceal their offense. Those who survive go through different physical and psychological problems. Most recently a 6-year old child girl Anisa was molested while she was playing outside her residence.
According to Geo TV, an unidentified man abducted her near her house and then raped her. She was found lying unconscious in the fields nearby. The rape-victim is now under treatment at a local hospital. In another case a 3-year old girl was raped and then murdered in Karachi.
It is not easy to find out the real motives behind this heinous crime. Sexual-frustration, porn-addiction, the use of drugs, psychological-illness excessive use of alcohol, no fear of reprisal from the law and society are some of the common reasons.
The recent wave of child-rape is a matter of concern for every sensible citizen of Pakistan. The parents should not leave their small children unguarded and alone while playing outside.
The government should take notice of the current wave of child-rape.The Chief Justice of Pakistan should take sueo moto action into the matter and put the culprits behind the bar. The persons behind these crimes should be given exemplary punishment so that others may not repeat this sort of callous act.
