#MotorwayIncident: Celebrities express outrage over the heinous crime


Lahore, 11th September: Incidents of rape are becoming frequent in a country which was made for protecting the people’s right and give them the rightful freedom to live.

Pakistan, ‘The Land of Pure’ basically came into being for the Muslims, where they can preach Islam freely, the religion which gave equal respect and protection to the womenfolk.

But now as we look at our society, aren’t we going against of what our religion teaches us?

Lahore Rape Case: Village of the accused identified

Among many of the horrific rape incidents reported, a recent episode has come into the light of a mother who was raped in front of her children on a deserted motorway road.

The incident has jolted each one of us, clearly showing that we are not safe in our country. Where is the PM who hoped to make Pakistan a Riyasat-e-Madinah? Where is our Human Rights Minister? Where is our government who is in power so they can help the people?

Sanniah Hassan founder of The Sanniah Experience! (TSE) and Editor of Baaghi TV shared the following thoughts on the issue: She said, “People are saying “No one is safe in this country!” and we feel there is truth to this statement because more and more victims are surfacing every which way, irrespective of gender, age, religion etc.”

Similarly, many notable personalities of Pakistan have raised their voice on the issue since the incident took place.

Renowned anchor and analyst Mubasher Lucman couldn’t hold back his opinion on the cruel attitude of the Lahore CCPO after the incident was reported.

He wrote, “I am shocked at the comments of the CCPO Lahore on the rape of an innocent woman on the highway. Even more shocking is the fact that the Punjab Government is not disturbed at all at the lack of decency on part of its official.”

More shocking is the way our Police authorities have reacted, particularly Lahore CCPO who came forward blaming the woman who was not supposed to be alone and out at such wee hours of the night.

Celebrities and netizens have expressed anger over CCPO and demand justice for the accused woman and her traumatized children.

#HangRapistPublically, a hashtag is top trending on Twitter.

Pakistani actress Mehwish Hayat took to her Twitter account and wrote:

She was disgusted at the Lahore CCPO and compared Singapore as safer for women for walking alone at night.

Actor Feroze Khan said that such criminals should be hanged publicly after every Jummah prayers.

He wrote, “Trial in such cases is useless, it should only be execution every Friday, and that’s Riyasat-e-Madina for me.”

TV actress Mansha Pasha summarised the incident and its aftershocks beautifully:

She wrote on her Twitter account, “The first crime is committed by the rapist. The second by those who blame the woman. The third by the officials who do nothing. And the fourth by those who say nothing. The only one blameless in entirety is the victim.”

Former Pakistani batsman Muhammad Yousaf also wrote on his Twitter account:

He rightly said that we have stressed so much on the humility for a woman, and in the process, we forgot to teach the same to our men. Modesty lies in the eyes of the people, if men are taught to look modestly at the women then such incidents would never happen.

Pakistani former cricketer Shahid Afridi consented to this tweet and wrote:

He said, “Yousaf you are absolutely right. This is the actual truth.”

Shireen Mazari, Minister for Human Rights tweeted yesterday on the horrific crime:

She wrote against the officer in charge of the case who blatantly blame the woman for going out alone.

Mazari wrote, “For an officer to effectively blame a woman for being gang-raped by saying she should have taken the GT Road or question as to why she went out in the night with her children is unacceptable & have taken up this issue. Nothing can ever rationalise the crime of rape. That’s it.”

Now public and famous personalities of the country demand justice from the Punjab Government, Prime Minister of Pakistan, and the Human Rights authorities to immediately take action against the rape culprits so that an example can be set for others.

Quoting the editor Sanniah Hassan, “Enough is enough, the time is up. Speak up! If not now then when? How many more victims do we want? If the government wants to stay they must act on this! @PakPMO @ImranKhanPTI @UsmanAKBuzdar @ShireenMazari1
