Karachi, January 11, 2018 (PPI-OT):Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali keeping in view the inhuman Kasur incident has ordered to set up a separate Desk at CM House Complaint Cell to entertain complaints of crime against children, particularly what he termed as ‘sexual terrorism against children.’ He said that our society is degenerating.

The phone number of the cell are 021-99202080-1, 99207394, 99207568. He has directed the complaint cell duty officer(s) to forward such complaint to the concerned police station and also send him on his WhatsApp number so that prompt, coordinate and strict action could be taken. “I have given clear instructions to the police to deal such cases as terrorism cases,” he said.

The Chief Minister through chief secretary has also directed education department to educate children against sexual assaults and such other crimes. “I believe it is sexual terrorism against children and such criminals would be booked accordingly,” he said.

He also directed the chief secretary to invite recommendations from the experts and civil society to include separate chapters on `sexual terrorism against children’ in the text books. “This is a serious issue and we all, parents, teachers and civil society have to control it with our collective efforts,” he said and added it is our prime duty to protect our children.

The society, particularly the parent should also be educated for protection of their children. “I am quite worried after this incident and I need support and guidance to educate the society against this kind of terrorism,” he concluded.
