Horrendous incidents with women have started to become a norm in 🇵🇰. It is very shameful that women's safety is the least priority of every govt. Even culprits know they would easily escape from the poor judiciary and police due to the weak system we have. #F9Park#Islamabad pic.twitter.com/mJtGgzr4o1— Hamza Qazi (@hamzaqazii) February 5, 2023
