Kohat: Last year it was Hina Shahnawaz, this year it's Asma Rani. They both lost their lives because of Men who couldn't take NO for an answer. One more reason for you not to get offended when someone says Men are trash. #JusticeForAsmaRani pic.twitter.com/YZGSGCZwjL— Farrukh Abbas (@Farrukh_Abbas12) January 29, 2018
