Siraj wants media not to screen immoral scenes to avert rape cases

LAHORE: Jamaat e Islami (JI) Chief Senator Sirajul Haq on Wednesday strongly condemned the brutal murder of seven-year old abducted girl in Kasur and termed it the worst example of human degradation.

In a statement here, the JI head said such shameful incidents were taking place in and around Kasur since long but the rulers seemed to be totally blind. The government was not mindful of its responsibility to protect the life, honour and property of the masses as their (rulers) concern was to remain in power only.

He said the persons involved in the criminal assault and murder of the minor girl were beasts and not human beings, asking the law enforcers to nab the culprit and give him exemplary punishment.

Siraj said that the media had promoted immorality by screening nude scenes and the government must have check and balance to minimize such incidents.
