Humanity dies in Pakistan again. In the city of Nowshera in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P), a poor six-year-old girl Seema breathed her last breath after she succumbed to the highest peak of brutality and inhumanity possible to mankind that is child abuse in KP.
The minor, Seema, was raped and murdered and the saddest part of this story is that officials sleep while she breathes her last breath.
The news of this brutality shook us to the core as we see another innocent child departing from this world after seeing the cruelest form of insanity possible. This innocent girl who didn’t even know what life tasted the most bitter taste of it.
Her untimely demise has surely awoken social media to demand justice for her. Twitterati and netizens appeal to the government to look into this matter and hang the ones responsible for this little angel’s death. Simultaneously, many are accusing the security officials of not performing their job correctly; provided innocents are arrested while such monsters lurk in the dark.
In Nowshera, a 6 year old girl Seema daughter of Imran from Bajaur Utmankhail, was brutally murderd after being raped. We demand the @KP_Police1 to take immediate action against those responsible and punish them severely.

It is about time people have become fed up with these ongoing tyrannies and have requested strict action to be taken regarding the matter. While some are asking the society and security officials when will this stigma end? How many Seemas and Zainabs will we sacrifice until justice can prevail?
Seema’s rapist arrested, but will justice prevail?
Recent reports suggest that the accused rapist of dear Seema who became the target of child abuse in KP, is now under police custody. He has also accepted his crime. DPO Nowshera informed the media, that the culprit accepts for murdering the girl over the fear of being identified. Najam-ul-Hasnain, the accused rapist, aged 18 is now arrested and his clothes and other evidence are now sent to forensics for further investigation.
Later on, DPO added, the post-mortem and medical reports of Seema are still not received but the investigation is in the pipeline. He also assures that strict action will be taken regarding the matter.
The accused revealed he killed the minor out of fear of being identified after he committed the act.

The irony of the situation is that there are consistent appeals on hanging and punishing people for alleged blasphemies. However, the rape epidemic never ends in the patriarchal society that we are slowly suffocating in every day.
This isn’t the first case of rape to have occurred. Just a few days back, a 12-year-old child was molested in a madrassah by the Molvi – and the entire society stayed silent on the matter. It is a sad world and time that we are going through as of now.
In the end, all we can hope for is that this poor girl, Seema’s death doesn’t get unnoticed. We pray for Seema’s soul, may she rest in peace.
