Apart from this rape incident, a wave of sexual assaults has spread like wildfire all across Pakistan.

One sexual assault incident after another and women all across the country are left traumatized and devastated.
People have held uncountable protests and demanded of the government to take serious measures in order to control such inhumane and barbaric incidents from the society.
Moreover, there is no doubt that about the fact that there has been an increase in the sale of self-defense weapons for women.
