Prime Minister Imran Khan, who has been criticized after the incident of rape of foreign woman in Pakistan, has made a big statement. He has supported the accused to be hanged publicly or to make a chemical castration through injection. Let me tell you that there is tremendous protest in Pakistan after the incident of gang-rape of a woman of French origin in front of children.

Iran Khan said that those accused of rape should be punished which is a lesson for others. In my opinion, they should be hanged on the square or impotent, so that they create fear and stop such crimes. He said that just as murders are divided into first degree, second degree and third degree, cases of rape should also be divided in this way. Under this, the accused of first degree rape should be impotent, so that they can never execute such an act again.

The 23-year-old main accused Shafqat Ali has been arrested for raping a French-origin woman in Pakistan. He has confessed his crime. The incident was carried out in front of the woman along the highway, in front of her three children, against whom people across Pakistan became angry. Protests took place in Lahore as well as Karachi, Islamabad, Peshawar and many other cities of Pakistan and people demanded the Imran government to punish the culprits and ensure the safety of women.

The victim had said that her car broke down on the Lahore-Sialkot highway. She was waiting for help. At the same time, two robbers came and raped her on the strength of gun. As soon as this incident unfolded, anger erupted all over Pakistan. People took to the streets demanding immediate arrest of the accused and justice for the woman.
