Pakistani Anchor Goes On Air With Daughter On Rape

Pakistani Anchor Goes On Air With Daughter On Rape

The brutal rape and murder of a minor has shattered Pakistan.  She did a live telecast on Wednesday with her young daughter sitting in her lap protesting minor’s brutal rape and murder.

Kiran Naz , Samaa TV presenter and anchor at a Pakistani news channel delivered a powerful statement.
Kiran Naz made a point about how she felt as a mother in the aftermath of the brutal rape and murder of a minor girl in eastern Pakistan’s Kasur town.
“Today I’m not your host Kiran Naz. I’m a mother and that is why I’m sitting here with my daughter,” a visibly emotional Naz said on national television.

Naz, reportedly one of the most popular female anchors in Pakistan, then voiced an impassioned monologue on the events following the abduction, rape and killing of seven-year-old Zainab Ansari.

Zainab Ansari disappeared last week while going to a nearby home for Quranic studies. Then her body was found in a Kasur waste-yard on Tuesday.

Her murder ignited fury in Kasur, where residents attacked a police station. After failing to disperse the mob, police opened fire. Two people were killed and three others were wounded in the ensuing clashes.

Zainab’s parents, who were away on a pilgrimage at the time she went missing, blamed the police for their slow response.
