War against rape
By: Sheeba Ajmal
The poor girl who was raped in a bus in Delhi passed away. In our country too, stories about gang rapes, especially in the rural areas of Sindh and Punjab, keep appearing in the media. Cases are registered in police stations and news reports are aired on TV channels but hardly any practical and realistic measures are taken to control this crime. Laws against such crimes exist but they are not implemented.
We need to set an example by taking strict action and punishing the culprits. Merely condemning such shameful incidents are not enough.
