    Its a rape of a teen age girl by monster, its not a hate crime, must be treated as a rape against a minor, her religion is irrelevant, however, some how in every case religion is emphasized as a case of “bad journalism.” Hindus, Christians and Sikh live in Pakistan, they suffer the same circumstances as their Muslim fellow citizen. Criminals does not confirm religion of a victim. To them, their is no meaning of religion or ethnicity. According to official data, total 77 cases of rape of minor girls were reported in the provincial capital Lahore alone from January 2018 to August. Majority of them were Muslim. Rape is a heinous crime it should be dealt with strict punishment. Unfortunately prosecution rate is dismal in Pakistan which encourage culprits to commit offences without fear of apprehension.Recommend
