So many child victims

By: MADIHA JAFFREY

Malala Yousafzai has been given a lot of publicity because of the devastating ordeal she went through but we must not forget other girls who go through the same (or worse) almost every day in Pakistan. Just recently, an eighth grader was shot along with her father at Shaheed-e-Millat in Karachi.

The father died on the spot and the girl, Mehzar Fatima, is in the ICU ward of a local hospital. Where is the media? Why is no channel showing anything about her? She was a student of a well-reputed school and education was a priority for her as well. It is sad that young victims of sectarian violence are not given the same kind of media attention as the victims of terrorism. Dozens of people die every day because of crimes that are sectarian in nature but the public is not made aware of this. There are many little boys and girls who die at the hands of human monsters in Pakistan. We must show them to the world also.
