Pakistani children are living in the dark because we treat this education as taboo and shy away from it. Parents don’t like to talk about the most important aspects of society. Which needs to become an important part of education, it leads to self-defense and protection.
We hope that the authorities are able to arrest the attacker and such incidents don’t take place in future. #Talknow
