In the month of September 2019 child rights activists in Pakistan expressed grave concern over the increased child sexual abuse and exploitation incidences. In an interview with The News on Sunday (TNS), Child Advocacy Network (CAN) Director, Ms. Rashida Qureshi, emphasized the importance of promoting the welfare and protection of children which is mostly ignored. “Child abuse is routine in Pakistan. Nothing serious is being done at the state level. Our negligence towards protecting our children results in hundreds of helpless children going through hell,” she noted. Ms. Qureshi urged Women Welfare Department and Child Protection and Welfare Department to work together to enhance the protection of children and youth in the country.
