The rising rate of child abuse in Pakistan has got everyone talking, including Pakistani celebrities who are raising their voices against the heinous crime.
One such recent incident has exposed the ugliest reality of thriving child abuse crime in our society when a government servant of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) was arrested few days ago for child pornography and sexual abuse.
Taking to Twitter, actor Mehwish Hayat, who is also ‘Goodwill Ambassador for the rights of the girl child’, slammed the culprit and said, “Let’s use this arrest – horrific as it is – to shut down all the networks and mafias exploiting our children in this way. Perverts like this have no place in any civilized society”.
Child abuse is the most heinous of crimes. Let's use this arrest – horrific as it is – to shut down all the networks and mafias exploiting our children in this way. Perverts like this have no place in any civilised society 🙏 @mohrpakistan @MOIofficialPk https://t.co/7Hd2tq9tpe
