ISLAMABAD: Renowned singer and social activist Shahzad Roy has emphasised that violence on children could not be stopped until and unless there are laws against it.
Roy campaigned with Geo News on the issue of violence against children to garner public attention towards this important issue.
Speaking in Naya Pakistan to Syed Talat Hussain, he informed that the relevant bill on this sensitive issue has been passed in the National Assembly but it is being completely ignored in the upper chambers (Senate).
Earlier, a student of Larkana Cadet College lost his senses due to alleged torture by a teacher.
After being strangulated, Mohammed Ahmed, 14, broke sensitive bones of his neck. He lost his speech and he suffered a paralytic attack which left his limbs motionless. He is on a liquid diet as he can neither digest nor chew solid food.
Ahmed’s father Ghullam Ahmed a teacher says that the incident occurred four months ago and a few teachers from his school are responsible for bringing his son to this state. “On August 6 just after school reopened after summer vacations I received a phone call from station master GM Bhatti saying that my son had suffered fits.”
