Netizens are angry

Not only the celebrities, but common people were also angry about the Faisalabad incident. One of the Netizens wrote “Charsadda, Sialkot and now Faisalabad all in the space of ten days. Make no mistake – the rule of the mob is here to stay – not least because we keep on telling ourselves comforting lies about who we are in order to avoid facing the truth about the ugliness of the evil around us.”

Nasir Khattak wrote, “The Sialkot, Rawalpindi, Faisalabad incidents, & others that happened in the recent past, point to the social rot of our society which does not seem to have an end. Perhaps we are on the verge of moral bankruptcy. Those who matter have to change their priorities or we are doomed.”

Mohsin Dawar also looked shocked as he wrote, “Shocked at the revolting incident in Faisalabad. Such actions are the result of a mentality that treats women as nothing more than objects. We demand the perpetrators be tried to the fullest extent of the law. No one should be able to get away with such crimes.” #Sharamnak
