The past few days on the social media have been horrific. From a young school-going boy killed by his teacher to a police officer misbehaving with an elderly woman in Lahore, we are seeing all sorts of news on social media that break our hearts.
Speaking of social media, the news of a lawyer in Lahore slapping a female constable was circulating everywhere. Advocate Ahmed Mukhtar was accused of slapping a female constable, Faiza Nawaz, while she was doing her job. The constable told Ahmed Mukhtar not to park his car at the checkpoint, and in return, he “violently slapped” her.

However, this crime did not come to an end we all might have hoped for.
Ahmed Mukthar Was Released from the Authorities Due to Legal Errors
On Saturday, the suspect was released by the court as the name on the FIR was misspelled as Ahmed Iftekhar. After slapping the woman in broad daylight, the man was released due to an error in the FIR.
The constable, Faiza Nawaz has appealed to President Arif Alvi and Chief Justice Asif Saeed Khosa to take immediate notice of the injustice.

This indeed disappointing to see that regardless of what a woman may do, she may never see her assaulter behind bars.
Hope justice system looks into this matter and sets an example in this case so man would ever take it upon himself to a slap a woman who is doing her duty.
