High-ups play down child abust scandal



  • High-ups play down child abuse scandal

    Afzal Ansari

    KASUR: The administration had the audacity to rub salt into the wounds of Kasur people on Saturday by playing down the magnitude of the child abuse scandal that has left them devastated since it came to light last month.

    The district police officer disputed media reports that the number of children affected was almost 300, basing his claim on a flimsy ground that only seven “complainants have approached us so far”.

    Furthermore, he linked the scandal to a land dispute between two groups.

    But the bravest of all was Rana Sanaullah, a minister in the Punjab cabinet. With a straight face, he dismissed the entire episode as “baseless”, according to Dawn.com.

    Talking to newsmen, Rai Babbar, the DPO, said there were “certain misperceptions” about the scandal.

    It was reported that about 280 children, most of them less than 14-year-old, of Husain Khanwala village, about 5km from Kasur, were sexually abused and filmed. Their families had been blackmailed, too.

    Rai Babar said six of the accused would be challaned after completion of their remand of 14 days.

    He said other five accused nominated in the FIR were on bail.

    Mr Babar denied any political pressure in the case and said a joint investigation team constituted by the Punjab chief minister would complete its job in a week.

    He said police had not found any proof that the number of victims ran into hundreds. “Announcements were made from mosques asking the victims to come to the police station and lodge complaints without any fear,” he said.

    The DPO said only seven complainants had so far approached the police to lodge cases. The videos had been received from complainants, he added.

    Meanwhile, Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif ordered arrest of the remaining accused named in the FIR.

    He issued the orders after receiving the report of the JIT comprising Additional IG Operations Arif Nawaz Khan and Lahore Commissioner Abdulla Khan Sumbal.

    The accused and their families had left the village, while protesters were also reluctant to remain there after a clash with police, leaving about 15 policemen injured.

    PTI Chairman Imran Khan expressed shock at the scandal and said some of the parents, who accused the Punjab police of being hands in glove with perpetrators of the crime, had been arrested.

    He said: “If we cannot protect our children and police give protection to perpetrators of the crime we will become an inhumane society.”

    He called for immediate arrest of and exemplary punishment for the guilty and protection for young children across the country.

    The DPO said the recovered videos showed that both the victims and the accused were under the age of 15. They are now grown-ups.

    He said the years’ old matter had surfaced because of a dispute over an expensive state land and a political and local tussle, while some mischievous elements were adding fuel to the fire.

    Mr Babar said the victims were in some of the videos and the accused in others. It was a group of boys and their activities were confined to them rather than to hundreds of children, he added.

  • Child abuse is most horrifying act and must be condemned with extreme hatred. Evil people who commit act and than upload on IT are shitan and deserves no mercy.

    Now come to reality of Kasur Scandal!

    A gang was born in Kasur from children of newly wealthy people. This was Martial regime of Perviaz Musharraf, where Jehangir Tareen, Ishaq Kakhwani etc were his close aides. Perviaz Elahi was CM Punjab. Till 2008 activities of this gang were on peak as criminals were linked with close aides of Perviaz Musharraf.

    When Martial Law curse was over democratic government of PML N took over Punjab efforts were started to eliminate such gangs. Few cases occur ed between 2009-2011 and were taken to court of law. In 2012 this gang was eliminated, though video clips of child abuse remained live as were uploaded on inter net. A third class act and for which PML N Government is very keen to enforce Cyber Crime Bill, being opposed by other political parties and few zameer frosh media activists.

    Why this case was brought in lime light after 3 years????

    There was a land dispute between two influential groups of area. Both want irrigation department land on lease. One group is headed by PML N MPA and other Pasha Party MPA candidate. When Pasha Party MPA could not get land on lease, few days back brought his people on road. Still his agitation bear no fruit for him.

    What to do next?

    Pasha Party backed group with the help of Islamabad based NGO (Mrs Abdullah, who was a staunch PPP and now have joined Pasha Party) scripted this plot to give this agitation colour of child abuse scandal. Media will paid to project scandal as occurred few days back. Opponent party over land dispute will be maligned and media will conveyed that PML N MPA is backing culprits. Shabaz Shartif Government will be sacred of media hype and agitation, they will negotiate and in return to end with agitation, irrigation department land lease condition will be imposed. By this pure purpose to bring Punjab Government under black mail.

    In Punjab Government is of lions. They are clean, so never come under any black mail. So came with whole facts besides media generations with Mrs Abdullah NGO and associated NGOs backed with Pasha Party. Hopefully land will not be given to Pasha Party group in true spirit of Justice.

    This is nothing new, it is in blood of Pappu Burgers to use women and child as shield and try to fire from other shoulders. This shield theory may be also be termed as Women and Child abuse.

    All those who painting three years old issue as happened now, must be ashamed to include Pasha Party allied political parties, paid NGOs and media.

    What should be future course now...........

    1. CM Punjab has ordered Judicial commission under LHC. Besides child abuse culprits, paid media/NGOs/political land mafia must also be included in judicial commission to punish those who highlighted issue after 3 x years besides evils who did child abuse.

    2. Pasha Party backed land mafia, political mafia, media and NGOs particular Mrs Abdullah of Islamabad, must purse cases in Session/High Courts. Must force judiciary not Punjab Government for speedy justice.

    3. All affected people who have not registered FIR must be forced to register FIR using Pasha Party land mafia supporting agitation now, paid media and Mrs Abdullah NGO.

    4. All those who love their mother, sister and daughters, will report videos with web sites to police/IT Ministry for removal, will not see them what so ever is case.

    5. Pasha Party is coming to National Assembly on Monday, must pursue PML N and other political parties for early enforcement of Cyber Crime Bill. If this bill is imposed, punishments will start and nobody will dare to upload such begarati called as fun in burger language on inter net. Once this viral disease of IT fun is nabbed, such curse will automatically eliminate from society.

    Hate child abuse at all cost if have even minor fear of Allah Almighty. Endorsed this story with future actions with dedicated thoughts under grief of 3 years back incident. Think positive and add positive plus practically possible.

    All those still doing begarati on this incident under title fun may continue visiting village at Kasur with media photo shoots and abuse against Shabaz Sharif Government (who is not responsible at all as they have terminated them, Perviaz Musharraf aides launched them in 2006). Paid media should also look for their credibility and do not paint as occurred yesterday.



  • After the exposure of horrible Scandal of Child Molestation in Qasoor, I suggest for investigation to trace millions of such cases in Pakistan.

    Child Molestation (Londay Baazi) is as favorite game in Pakistan as Kite Flying (Patang Baazi)



  • Welcome Mirza Ghalib jee

    Sure, apparently High-ups had been trying to play down child abuse scandal.



  • Kasur child molestation scandal baseless, says inquiry report

    KASUR: A high-level inquiry committee formed by the Punjab government to investigate allegations of authorities' inaction to check instances of child sex abuse and blackmailing by a gang in Husain Khanwala and other villages in Kasur district concluded that reports of child molestation are baseless.

    Senior minister of the Punjab government, Rana Sanaullah, while talking to DawnNews, said the inquiry had concluded that no instance of child sex abuse had been reported, adding that reports to this effect surfaced after two parties involved in a land dispute registered "fake cases" against each other.

    Sanaullah said almost eight years ago, incidents of child molestation and videos of such acts to blackmail families had been reported in the area, adding that cases were registered against those involved and the culprits were apprehended.

    The provincial minister and PML-N stalwart insisted that the scandal had been created by rival parties who were involved in a fierce land dispute.

    The inquiry, sanctioned by Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif, was conducted by Additional Inspector General Arif Nawaz Khan and Commissioner Lahore Division Abdullah Sunbal.

    A pitched battle between police and protesters had left 25 people, including two DSPs, injured near Dolaywala village along Deepalpur Road in Kasur on Thursday.

    Hundreds of people hailing from Husain Khanwala and other villages demonstrated against police for their alleged failure to smash a gang suspected of raping hundreds of children and extorting money from their parents by blackmailing them through videos.

    Details of the child sex abuse scandal were reported by local media, with some reports saying that 280 children were molested by a gang, which also made around 400 videos of children, later using them to blackmail families and receiving money from them.

    While the provincial government has now downplayed the scandal, protestors were still out on the streets in Kasur, demanding that the culprits, some of whom they say are at large, be apprehend immediately.

  • PTI's view

    'There is no land dispute'

    Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) leader Mian Mehmoodur Rasheed while speaking to the press on Sunday said that his party would submit a condemnation resolution in the Punjab Assembly.

    Rasheed said the PTI would hold protests against the scandal and will not rest until those responsible for the incident are brought to justice.

    "This incident is a failure of the government. There is no land dispute, that is a separate matter which has nothing to do with the sexual abuse of children." he said.

    "There should be a complete inquiry into the incident and the judicial commission ordered by the Chief Minister should initiate its probe immediately," he said, adding that the CM should also take note of intimidatory tactics employed by the police in the area.

    "No one's lives and property are safe in Punjab," he added.

    'Disturbing' reports, says Zardari

    Former President and PPP Co-Chairman Asif Zardari termed reports of the Kasur child abuse scandal 'very disturbing'. He called for a thorough probe and investigation into the case, and bringing the culprits to justice.

    He also directed the PPP Punjab chapter to prepare a report about the children in Kasur who were sexually abused and filmed by criminal gangs for blackmail and extortion.

    The former president urged PPP lawmakers to investigate the reports and raise the issue in the parliament so that justice could be served.

    "The reports are a slap on the face of the government and society, and must not go unnoticed," he said.

    'Punjab government is sleeping'

    Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) chief Sirajul Haq while speaking to the press on Sunday accused the Punjab government of sleeping "while the Punjab police sides with the culprits instead of the victims."

    The JI emir said that Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif should have taken notice of the incident immediately.

    "The provincial government should have reached Kasur to address the grievances of victims," he said, adding, "Instead, those who were protesting against injustice were baton-charged."

    'Baseless' scandal

    Senior minister of the Punjab government, Rana Sanaullah, while talking to DawnNews on Saturday, said the inquiry had concluded that no instance of child sex abuse had been reported, adding that reports to this effect surfaced after two parties involved in a land dispute registered "fake cases" against each other.

  • There is no question that this evil act happened between 2006-12 at Kasur. 8 cases reported rest is paid media/NGO propaganda.

    Culprits must be publicly hanged....

    Only question is why issue was linked with land dispute between PML N and Pasha Party feudal lords after 3 years. Why Pasha Party with paid media and paid NGO of Tahira Abdullah (mombasti mafia) are doing now?????????

    This remind of a old joke. All animals laughed over a joke in Zoo less donkey. Next day donkey was alone laughing, animals asked why he is laughing, said understood joke now.

    Same is case here, evil gang was basted in 2013. Now to earn land (typical rural politics) Pasha Party land mafia with paid media and mombati mafia NGO linked it with child abuse after 3 years.

    All going and making photo sessions. It is learnt that MAROSI politics icon Raham Khan is also likely to visit for photo shoot.



  • http://tune.pk/video/4499791/samaa-team-attacked-for-recording-women-abuse-scene-at-pti-dharna#t=00:16

    Pasha Party must see this what happened during LUCKY IMRANI CIRCUS. It is reported by Pasha Party media cell SAMA.

    Later think why they awoke after 3 years with back up from Momabati Mafia Tahira Abdullah and paid media for brutal Kasur scandal, for linking it with land dispute.



  • کوئی مدد کو نہیں آئےگا

    حکومت کسی قابل ہو تو اسلامی جمہوریہ پاکستان میں روزانہ چھ عورتیں اغوا ، چھ قتل اور چار ریپ نہ ہوں اور تین عورتیں خودکشی نہ کریں۔

    پولیس بھی مدد کو نہیں آئے گی، ورنہ مظفرگڑھ کے میر ہزار تھانے کے سامنے 18 سالہ ریپ زدہ لڑکی کاہے کو خود پر تیل چھڑک کے جل مرتی۔

    عدالت سے بھی انصاف کی توقع نہ رکھیے۔ ایسے معاملات میں اصل ملزموں کے سزا پانے کا امکان ایک فیصد سے بھی کم ہے۔

    فوجی عدالتوں میں بھی ایسے مقدمات نہیں بھیجے جاسکتے کیونکہ ٹیرر ازم کی تعریف میں جنسی دہشت گردی اور قوم کے مستقبل کا ریپ نہیں آتے۔

    اس دھوکے میں بھی نہ رہیے کہ جہاں امن و امان کی عمومی صورتحال زیادہ بہتر بتائی جائے وہاں کوئی عورت ، بچی یا بچہ بھی زیادہ محفوظ ہو۔ ایسا ہوتا تو عورت فاؤنڈیشن کے مطابق سالِ گذشتہ بدامن سندھ کی 85 عورتوں کے مقابلے میں پرامن پنجاب کی 1408 عورتیں گینگ ریپ کا شکار نہ ہوتیں۔

    ایسا ہو تو اس پاکستان میں پانچ تا 15 برس تک کے دس بچے روزانہ اجتماعی و انفرادی جنسی تشدد کا نشانہ کیوں بنتے اور روزانہ پانچ بچے کیوں اغوا ہوتے۔( حالانکہ اغوا کی سزا موت ہے)۔

    تو پھر میڈیا کچھ کرے ؟ مگر اسے ریٹنگ کے ٹھیلے پر مصالحے دار چاٹ بیچنے سے فرصت کہاں ؟ میڈیا پر تو ایٹم بم گرنے کی خبر بھی چار دن چلنے کے بعد پانچویں نمبر پر آ جاتی ہے۔

    کہتے ہیں اس ملک میں کوئی چائلڈ پروٹیکشن ایجنسی بھی ہے اور کسی نیشنل کمیشن فار چائلڈ ویلفیئر کا وجود بھی ہے۔سنتے ہیں کہ شہروں کے برعکس آج بھی دیہی علاقوں میں نفسا نفسی کم ہے کیونکہ چھوٹی جگہ پر لوگ ایک دوسرے سے زیادہ واقف ہوتے ہیں۔

    تو پھر خواتین اور بچوں کے ساتھ جنسی تشدد کے 67 فیصد واقعات دیہی علاقوں میں اور 33 فیصد شہری علاقوں میں کیوں؟

    پنجاب میں ایسا کیا ہے کہ گذشتہ برس وہاں پانچ تا 15 برس کے 2054 بچے انفرادی و اجتماعی جنسی تشدد کا شکار ہوئے اور گلگت و بلتستان میں ایسا کیا ہے کہ وہاں بچوں پر جنسی تشدد کا صرف ایک کیس سامنے آیا۔

    لیکن اعداد و شمار کے گورکھ دھندے میں پڑھنے سے کچھ نہیں ہوتا۔بس یوں سمجھیے کہ ہر سامنے آنے والی ایک واردات کے پیچھے تین تا پانچ وہ وارداتیں ہیں جو گھر، محلے اور برادری میں ہی دھونس، شرم ، رقم اور بے بسی کے بوجھ تلے دب کے رھ جاتی ہیں اور متاثرہ عورت یا بچہ باقی عمر اپنی بے عزتی کی قیمت پر دوسروں کی عزت رکھتے رکھتے دہکتے دل و دماغ کے دوزخ میں گزار دیتا ہے۔

    ہاں انسان سماجی جانور ہے اور تنہا زندگی نہیں گزار سکتا۔اسے قدم قدم پر رشتے داروں، جان پہچان والوں اور طاقتوروں کی ضرورت پڑتی ہے۔ مگر اندھا اعتماد بھی تو خود کو اندھی گلی میں لے جانے کا راستہ ہے۔

    مت کیجیے اندھا اعتماد۔آپ کے بچے یا بچی کو کسی اجنبی سے صرف 30 فیصد جنسی خطرہ ہے۔70 فیصد خطرہ رشتے داروں ، جاننے والوں یا اردگرد کے لوگوں سے ہے۔تب ہی تو ہمیں اور آپ کو اپنے بچوں سے ہونے والی زیادتی سے زیادہ یہ فکر رہتی ہے کہ منہ کھولا تو دنیا کیا کہے گی۔

    تو پھر کریں کیا؟ حل جتنا مشکل ہے اتنا ہی آسان ہے۔

    اپنے بچوں کے ساتھ جتنا وقت گزار سکیں گزاریں۔جگر گوشوں کو جیب خرچ ، کھلونے، سوٹ، موٹر سائیکل، گھڑی یا موبائل فون سے بھی بہت پہلے آپ کی قربت چاہیے۔فاصلہ پیدا ہوگا تو بیچ میں کوئی نہ کوئی تیسرا آ جائے گا اور یہ تیسرا کوئی فرشتہ بھی ہو سکتا ہے اور شیطان بھی۔

    اس سے پہلے کہ بچوں کو کسی اور سے پتہ چلے۔آپ خود دوستانہ تعلیمی انداز میں انسانی جسم اور اس میں وقت کے ساتھ ساتھ آنے والی تبدیلیوں کے بارے میں ان کی عمر کا لحاظ رکھتے ہوئے آسان لہجے میں سمجھائیں۔

    یہ بھی بتائیں کہ ماں، باپ اور بہن ، بھائیوں کے علاوہ اگر کوئی بھی قریبی یا دور کا جاننے والا یا اجنبی غیر معمولی انسیت یا بے تکلفی برتے یا مادی ترغیب دے تو دماغ میں الارم بجنا چاہیے اور اس بارے میں والدین کو ضرور بتانا چاہیے اور ایسا کرنے پر شاباش بھی ملے گی۔

    جتنی توجہ ہم اپنی املاک اور دولت کی حفاظت پر دیتے ہیں کیا اتنی ہی توجہ اپنے بچوں کے زہنی و جسمانی تحفظ پر بھی دیتے ہیں؟

    پھر بھی ہمارا بچہ شکار بن جائے تو کیا کریں ؟ سب سے پہلے یہ کریں کہ اسے پہلے سے زیادہ پیار اور توجہ دیں تاکہ یہ احساس نہ کھا جائے کہ وہ تنہا ہے یا وہی قصور وار ہے اور پھر فیصلہ کریں کہ مزید کیا کرنا ہے ؟

    چپ سادھ کے شکاریوں کی حوصلہ افزائی کرنی ہے یا شور مچا کر ان کے گرد گھیرا تنگ کرنا اور دوسروں کو خبردار کرنا ہے؟

    جب آپ کسی اور کے بچے کی حفاظت کرتے ہیں تو اصل میں اپنے ہی بچے کی حفاظت کر رہے ہوتے ہیں۔

    اگر بات اب بھی سمجھ میں نہیں آ رہی تو وائلڈ لائف چینل باقاعدگی سے دیکھیے تاکہ معلوم ہو سکے کہ جانور اپنے بچوں کو کیسے بچاتے ہیں۔جنگل میں تو کوئی ریاست ، تھانہ اور کچہری بھی نہیں ہوتے۔
