HANGU: The harrowing incident of the brutal rape and murder of a nine-year-old girl in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Hangu district has sparked uproar and protest on social media with people using #JusticeForMadiha to demand justice for the minor victim.
The minor was reportedly found raped and murdered in Saro Khel village, Hangu district on Sunday.
According to initial investigation, she was brutally murdered after being subjected to sexual assault.
This latest case of child sexual abuse is a cruel and tragic reminder of how children remain vulnerable to such crime.
This case comes in the wake of the passage of Zainab Alert Bill which among other things calls for establishment of a Helpline for missing children and Response and Recovery Agency (ZARRA).
The horrifying incident has triggered outcry with social media users calling for publicly executing those found involved in child abuse to act as a deterrent and lower rate of crime.
I can’t say what had happened، how it happened but the chain is same and the flow is in continuity another flower is plucked.

مجرموں کے لیے سخت سزائیں اور ان پر عمل درآمد ہونا چاہیے لیکن کیا آپ لوگوں کو لگتا ہے کہ سخت قانون بنانے اور مثالی سزائیں دینے سے یہ درندے عبرت حاصل کریں گے؟ والدین سے گزارش ہے کہ اپنے بچوں پر نظر رکھیں اور کسی پر اندھا اعتماد نہ کریں کیونکہ یہی ایک واحد حل ہے۔#JusticeForMadiha pic.twitter.com/mDl5UDiyh6

If it’s only the name that keeps changing with every #justicefor hashtag, and not the trend, then there’s something seriously wrong with what we are doing. It’s time for action, not hashtags. #JusticeForMadiha #hangrapistspublicly
