Celebrities speak out on #JusticeForZainab!
The 7 year old Zainab from Kasur went missing on Jan 4th. She was allegedly raped, strangled to death and the body was thrown in garbage bin after 5 days of her kidnapping. The incidents of rape, kidnapping and child abuse have made us question the authorities of their responsibility for the people.
The residents of Kasur protested on roads for the incident that took place forcing all markets to shut down.
Immediately following the incident and protest rally that turned violent in Kasur, many celebrities took to social media to speak out against this tragedy.
Zainab i am so sorry. I am ashamed of what has happened to you. I pray that those people die the most difficult death and burn in hell.
I can’t even imagine the agony her family must be going through.#JusticeForZainab

Sorry to have failed you Zainab. Hurts to know that you’ve probably joined a list of victims who’s perpetrators will forever roam free. Yet our leaders tweet in remorse? Sickened and ashamed. The Govt HAS to bring the culprits task. Now. #JusticeForZainab

At times like this, being speechless .. disgusted is an understatement. Everyone is so caught up in the ” big wars” that the basics are forgotten.. or maybe just disregarded. Kiya Zaroori hai ke Humhe Hamesha ek Dhamake ki zaroorat ho.. to pay attention? #JusticeForZainab pic.twitter.com/Fhiv3Rp29E

Just heard this horrific news, this happens way too often in our world and it’s time we demand change and justice! We need to raise our boys to be men, we need to raise our children to live in a world that is equal, a world with justice. We must fight! #JusticeForZainab pic.twitter.com/oG0UxlcOZY

I am at loss of words right now. While i was enjoying my time out from work and pakistan i came across this on social media. The first thing after praying for Zainab and her family which came to my mind was, where do we stand as an individual, as a human being? #justiceforzainab pic.twitter.com/dkmpnVbeqG

How could someone even think of doing something this cruel?! This is just too painful! Will this go under the rug just like the other incident in Kasur? Had those people been taken to task maybe we wouldn’t be trending #JusticeForZainab today!

Ya Allah is qadar Zulm or Jahalat! We should truly truly be ashamed of ourselves as a Nation. What’s the point for #JusticeForZainab when there are countless Rape & Murder cases in line for justice? @pid_gov @GovtOfPunjab Devastated!

How does one even begin to process this. The eleventh case of abduction, rape and murder of a child in Kasur. In just this last year. In the district responsible for the largest child abuse scandal in Pakistan’s history. My God, Zainab. Our collective apathy failed you.

Our leaders in power do jack. If they were doing their jobs right, non of this would be happening but all they care about is getting their seats and positions and making money. How can they ask questions when they are ones who have to answer to public. Pathetic https://t.co/viqKslYd5j

Truth is Zainab could be anyone of our children. & we would be helpless. Why? Because we allow sick patriarchal, feudal ideas to exist about women, because we fail to educate our boys how to respect, love & feel, towards girls & women. Because our laws do NOT protect our children
