Child sexual abuse is one of the horrendous crimes which can be inflicted upon anyone. Minority Hindus in rural Sindh have been targeted with abduction, sexual violence and forced religious conversions. It is about time the civil society of Pakistan stood up against this madness; against the ruling party of Pakistan for systemically protecting rapists.
We are appealing to the local population to provide security to both families so that they can be protected from further political persecution or police harassment in Umerkot in Sindh. We want Pakistani people to call their MPs and register their complaint with them. We want everyone outside of Pakistan to call respective Pakistani embassies and high commissions all over the world and ensure that justice is provided to both survivors of child sexual abuse.

Stop Child Abuse and Abuse of Power in Sindh Province, Pakistan
Two minor are raped by a local leader of PPP & PML(F), in the district of Umerkot in Sindh, aged 6 and 14.
Its FIR no 61/12 u/s 354 ppc on the complaint of "Bheel" against 3 accused. The application of innocuous sec 354ppc clearly shows malafide as its bailable and it would further aggravate things for the victim.
The accused names are Aziz, Majeed & Maroof. The case is high profile as mentioned earlier as one of the accused involved is the local leader of PPP while the other accused belongs to powerful and influential "Rind" clan in Sindh.
After raping the Hindu minor & not getting any forensics done, there was an attempt to kidnap her too. The survivor is a Bheel -- not just Hindu, but a scheduled caste Hindu. The rape of children from scheduled castes is very common in Sindh.
Sindh Police is not helping rape survivor in Umerkot case as SSP of the district is brother of Ayaz Soomro, who is a member of PPP, aka law minister.
