Pakistani anchor host bulletin with daughter protesting 8-yr-old's rape, murder

Pakistani anchor host bulletin with daughter protesting 8-yr-old's rape, murder

Pakistan's Malala Yousafzai, the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize laureate and champion for female education, tweeted Wednesday she was "heartbroken" about Zainab's tragic fate and demanded action against the killer.

Pakistan does not have laws similar to India protecting the identity of rape victims in the media, which is also why her full name, and pictures of her face are out in the public domain.

Kasur witnessed huge protests after the body of Zainab, who went missing last week, was found dumped in a trash pile. A curfew has been imposed in the area, three officials who shot at the demonstrators have been arrested, and Kasur's police chief has been sacked for mishandling the case. "They also threw traffic out of gear by burning tires on Ferozepur Road and chanted slogans against police and local parliamentarians for their alleged apathy". She said that the whole of Pakistan felt the burden of what happened to Zainab, and that she was adopting this form of protest being a mother herself. Three people were killed during clashes with police.

Almost everywhere, the refrain was the same: The government must not only bring this killer to justice - it must also do a better job to protect its citizens. In a moment to protest the violence the young girl, Television anchor, Kiran Naz, took her young daughter on air with her.

"This has to stop", tweeted Nobel Peace Prize victor Malala Yousafzai, who hails from Pakistan and said Wednesday she was "heartbroken" to hear of the girl's killing.

The paedophile gang allegedly abducted and sexually assaulted at least 280 children in the area, blackmailed the families of the victims since 2009, and even sold video clips and images of the assault.

There have been scores of similar cases in this region of Pakistan, including 12 in the previous year within a less than two-mile radius. #JusticeForZainab became a top Twitter hashtag in the country as outrage grew and politicians called for action.

Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif, while chairing a meeting, announced a Rs 10 million reward for those who would help identify the killer of Zainab.

"I want the culprits involved in this heinous crime behind the bars", he added.

In televised comments, Zainab's father laid bare the stakes of the simmering unrest.
