Unsafe while they're marching, unsafe while they're walking on the streets, unsafe while they're driving, unsafe when accompanied - women in this country are unsafe, and the gang-rape of a woman travelling from Lahore to Gujranwala, has sparked this concern in the entire nation.
Raped at gunpoint while she was waiting for help after her car developed fault; citizens are outraged at the heinous crime committed in front of her children.
Further adding fuel to the fire were the vile comments from the Lahore CCPO, a man in authority blaming the victim without remorse. While the nation demanded to hold him accountable; celebrities too, raised a voice against the safety of women in this country.
