    @genesis We are a nation who needs 4 witness before believing such crap. It is too early to say anything (Sarcasm)

    Rapes were always happening in Pakistan. 95% of the rapes dont get reported. It is only now after incidents in India getting media outrage we have started reporting. Pakistanis are under the impression that we are a pure Islamic country where everyone prays five times a day, there are no rapes, people dont drink alcohol and homosexuality and bisexuality is not there. Looks like we just dont want to accept the reality.

    yet another medical report showed that was a rape incident but maulvis would still say there were no four witnesses so the rapist should be freed and let the party begin, in my opinion maulvis enjoy rapes

    First I pray for the 2 innocent girls, may Allah SWT give them peace and jannat. It sickens me that this can happen anywhere in the world, especially in a Muslim country.

    I’m hoping the authorities are doing something serious about this. It would also be wise to take DNA samples from the victims.

    Hopefully the people/person who did this are caught. The DNA evidence is crucial. I admit that forensic sciences might not be as advanced in Pakistan but there are more than enough smart and capable people in Pakistan who can use & understand the sciences. Once the evidence is destroyed, it won’t come back.

    Sounds like a network of sadistic, school rapists with an organized, country-wide pattern. Easy to setup such a band of fiends in this digital age, mobile, facebook, etc. Hard not to ignore such a developmental possibility considering child pornography and rape is a worldwide digital club with stings occurring in the USA, Eastern Europe, and The Far East Islands…

    @Mazher Mehboob, 4 witness are needed for adultery, not rape.

    Its extremely disappointing to see such news coming from pak on daily basis now. These people should be caught and hanged asap.

    If there is Islamic state no one dare to commit this kind of crime. They are our daughters and who is asking four witnesses for these poor girls. Why are you people blaming Islamic laws for this atrocity. The culprits must be hanged publicly.

    Stop generalizing, it’s not a general practice. Crime are committed everywhere. Sadly law and order is not on our leaders’ top priority.

    @Syed:
    Not that same apologistic line again and again;read the latest ruling from the Ulema council.It specifically says 4 witnesses to prove rape and DNA not allowed.

    We are a nation of cheats, liars, child molesters, rapists, fraudsters, and murderers. This is our national character, and we all know it very well, whether we admit it or not. Sadly in this case, these victims are not the “qaum ki baiti” so no religious party will raise voice for them.Recommend
