lkhan | 4 years ago | Reply Why was Sidra not taken away from this butcher of a savage? Why was she left in his hands for five years? What must those years have been? Why are women in Pakistan not given the protection against violence that is their basic human right? Why are violent men not made aware of their bestial nature, and to harness such evil, otherwise the rule of law will come down on them so hard, they will not know what hit them? Why why why....... why must we daily read of such horrific uncivilised medieval mad uncouth wild totally unjustifiable ways? Why do these monsters think they can perpetrate such in total impunity? ENOUGH.
