It has been learnt that a 16-year-old girl was raped and brutally murdered in Bhalwal tehsil of Sargodha which lies in Punjab.

Her body was found in a rubbish heap more than a mile from her home in Kasur, close to the border with India, on Tuesday. She had been raped and strangled. They had been away when she was abducted, on a pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia.

As the news spread across the country, its citizens were left angered and horrified.

According to Aftab a parent or a guardian should interact with their child carefully if they suspect a change in routine, attitude or behaviour. Zainab's murder has caused uproar in Pakistan, where people are demanding justice and the immediate arrest of the culprits.

DESIblitz takes a closer look at the case, and the wake-up call needed for society.

Holding her daughter in her lap, Ms. Naz opened the channel's news bulletin saying that she is not Kiran Naz today, but a mother.

This week, a 7-year-old girl named Zainab was found dead in a dumpster in Kasur, Pakistan. This incident took place when her parents had gone for Umrah.

Opposition PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto has termed the brutal rape and murder of the girl as "shocking and a slap on the face of Sharifdom (Sharif brothers)". "My relatives and neighbours told me that the police used to come, have food and leave", he told local media. "While they didn't do anything, my friends and family spent day and night looking for my daughter". They set a vehicle on fire, broke the building's window panes and damaged other properties. However, this has led to the unfortunate deaths of two protestors.

Kasur shop owners shut their businesses Wednesday to express their anger over Zainab's slaying.

Riots erupted in Kasur over police inaction after reports of the alleged rape and murder of the girl began circulating on social media. Recent records have also shown such cases are rising. "In Zainab's funeral, we are witnessing the funeral of humanity".

Of these cases, the categories were split into 1,455 abductions, 502 rapes, 453 sodomies, 271 gang rapes, 268 gang sodomies and 362 attempts of CSA (child sexual abuse). "There is no long-term redressal of the issue and it is treated more as an anomaly rather than a widespread problem that needs to be tackled at various levels and through sustained effort", she stressed.

Sajjad Bhatti, senior coordinator with Sahil's Lahore office, told Al Jazeera the organisation was providing legal aid and psychological counselling to the victims. An FIR was also lodged against the killing of one of the victims of police firing, Shoaib Islam, at B-Division police station. When was the last time you insisted that the school curricula in Pakistan include lessons in sexual practices and mores so that children don't have to find out "the hard way'?"
