Karachi: A 4 year old boy from Karachi was allegedly raped multiple times in his school.
According to people who are reporting the incident on social media, the child was raped by the school security guard and a sweeper. The horrendous incident allegedly took place in the Beacon Light School of Gulshan-e-Maymar, Karachi.
His mother took a closer look at his body and found out that his uniform and body had traces of fecal matter. The mother further inquired her child about what had happened and the nursery student revealed that he has been raped at his school.
The child allegedly identified his harassers as Zulfiqar and Niazi and recognized the room he was raped in.
@BeaconlightA School is not supportive at all in this child rape case and if you think you can cover this incident so easily you are mistaken. Many parents didn’t know about this incident yet. People needs to raise their voices against this incident and the School. pic.twitter.com/Jce7W6UJnU

Incidents like these only reveal how we have a long way to go before we can be a society that is able to properly address such heinous crimes, let alone discuss them.
The victim shaming attitude is not just limited to blaming women about the type of clothes they might have worn or their behavior toward their abusers, children like this boy are equally shamed.
Given the way events have transpired, each one of us shoulders the responsibility to do more than we have.
Vigils to remember the deceased and tweets sending out thoughts and prayers may offer peace of mind, but we’re not living in a time that requires us to look for peace in such immense chaos. On an individual level, we can all still make enough noise and pledge to not stop till we see any semblance of change.
The school is trying to hide this incident and keep it hush on account of their "IZZAT". There is no accountability, let alone retribution. It happened on THEIR grounds, when THEY were supposed to protect students. But they're busy in calling out the media for twisting the story.
