Pakistani Anchor Goes on Air with Daughter to Protest Minor's Brutal Rape & Murder






An anchor at a Pakistani news channel delivered a powerful statement when she did a live telecast on Wednesday with her young daughter sitting in her lap. During a news bulletin, Samaa TV presenter Kiran Naz made a point about how she felt as a mother in the aftermath of the brutal rape and murder of a minor girl in eastern Pakistan's Kasur town.

"Today I'm not your host Kiran Naz. I'm a mother and that is why I'm sitting here with my daughter," a visibly emotional Naz said on national television. Naz, reportedly one of the most popular female anchors in Pakistan, then voiced an impassioned monologue on the events following the abduction, rape and killing of seven-year-old Zainab Ansari.

"It is said that the smaller the corpse, the heavier it feels. Today, a tiny corpse is lying on the streets of Kasur and the entire Pakistan is crushed under its weight... This day marks the funeral of humanity," she said. Slamming the rigmarole of police investigation and political wrangling over such cases, Naz asserted that what should take precedence is ensuring justice for Zainab and punishment to the perpetrators.
