#JusticeForZainab is Trending On Twitter And It's Sending A Powerful Message
This story is truly heart-breaking
Zainab was an eight-year-old Pakistani girl who was horrifically raped and killed on her way to a Quran recital.
Zainab's last moments were caught on CCTV, she was being lead away by an unknown man. Her body was found days later in a rubbish dump, 2km from her home.
This is not the first child murder in the Pakistani city of Kasur, (there are reports of 12 similar cases in just two years) and there's uproar from the Pakistani people who think the police could be doing more to put a stop to it.
The story is having a deep impact around the world
So shattered this morning. Deeply Saddened, Shocked, Angered and Horrified reading about little Zainab. What kind of barbaric mentality do people who commit crimes like this have? World stands with the parents of 7 year old Zainab. #JusticeForZainab @CMShehbaz— Suhail Al Zarooni (@SuhailAlZarooni) January 10, 2018

Her last moments were caught on camera
People will no longer stand for lack of action
The countryside eras of Pakistan are getting inhabitant with the people like criminals and rapists. If we don’t stand against them and wait for the useless government to take some actions then we might lose some more innocent souls like Zainab.#JusticeForZainab— A Girl With A Camera (@iSanaUsman) January 10, 2018
