KARACHI: Heinous occurrences like the tragic rape and murder of seven-year-old Zainab in Kusur sap energy out of citizens. Many, instead of tackling the racine of the malady, take to the streets blaming the state.
Sources privy to Newspakistan.tv have reported that a security guard of a private school here located near Ibrahim Hyderi district was detained today as a five-year-old girl accused him of attempting rape. According to the details, parents of the minor reached school early in the morning and started beating up the guard. Following the incident, police arrested the alleged abuser.
It has further been learnt that police has already commenced the interrogation to probe the matter further. Following examination MLO has confirmed that no sexual act was committed. Moreover, the concerned minister gave a green chit to the accused terming the whole episode as politically motivated.
It is pertinent to mention here that, as per the records provided by the sources, only seven percent child abuse is committed by strangers while in some 47 percent cases relatives are found involved.
Also, girls are more prone to face such extreme consequences as compared to boys. As far as Pakistan is concerned, around 11 incidences of child sexual abuse are reported on a daily basis.
Keeping the current scenario in view, Newspakistan.tv urges its viewers to tell their kids apropos good and bad touch. Because children are believed to be more susceptible and fragile and hence, impostors know how to manipulate the naïve kids emotionally and physically.
Following are some of the important tips that parents need to bear in mind so as to keep their kids off the potential impostors:
- Try to be with your kids when outdoors. Also, keep a watchful eye upon their whereabouts.
- These days, professional parents tend to hire babysitters as they are too occupied practically. However, leaving kids alone with them could prove to be perilous. So be careful!
- Restrict your child regarding talking to strangers and taking sweets from them. Also, do not let them go to neighbors homes.
- Most incidents occur when parents send their kids to shops and markets. Therefore, do not send them outside alone especially when the darkness falls.
- Educate your child apropos harassment and molestation. Tell them the potential signs. Also, advise them to shout and report any indecent advantages taking by adults.
It is pertinent to mention here that a total of 1,764 cases of child molestation here had been reported in the first six months of 2017.
Not to mention that some 15 percent of the cases were said to have committed at the victim’s place, whereas only 12 percent were perpetrated at an acquaintance’s place.
The crux of the matter is that being parents, we should tell our kids to not trust their teachers, friends and even relatives.
Teach them the art to say NO to things they find uncomfortable.
By doing this, we can prevent our children from becoming the victims of such brutal activities.
