ISLAMABAD: This refers to the news report “Vigilante violence: Women stabbed ‘for shopping’” (October 28). It is really shocking that such violent incidents are occurring on a daily basis in different cities of our country now. I have not read anywhere that our religion teaches such brutality, and that also against women.
The self-proclaimed guardians of religion, are propagating hatred amongst the masses — all this to spread more terror and fear. According to the news report, a few women were stabbed, in order to stop them from stepping out of their homes. Police officials seem to be helpless at the hands of these criminal gangs. How one can expect better results in presence of such circumstances?
