Iqbal Hadi Zaidi | 5 years ago | Reply Gang rape is unknown in Kuwait where I am since 1978 and I did not hear it Saudia as well where I worked during 1976-78, if I am not mistaken, but regretfully very much common in my beloved Pakistan. What surprises me the most is that in most such like gang rape cases, the culprits are not caught and punished, I wish she should be the last gang rape case in Pakistan, though I have very serious doubts about the same.
