KARACHI: Pakistani singer and social worker Shehzad Roy said that 90% of the children who are abused know the abuser personally. "I think this injustice [that happened with Zainab in Kasur] is happening with every fifth child," he said. "Ninety per cent of the times it's someone the child knows."

It is extremely important to implement Life Skill-Based Education, said Roy while speaking to Samaa at a protest demanding justice for Zainab. Zainab was found raped and dead in Kasur. "It is very important to include [this education] in the curriculum," he said. "Also, it is very important for parents to speak to their children so that children are able to tell them if they face any abuse."
