Pakistani Twitter users say we as a nation have failed to teach our younger generation to respect all women.

An American social media activist and vlogger was allegedly raped by her tour guide in Dera Ghazi Khan’s Fort Munro and netizens are enraged. They’re demanding swift action and immediate justice for the victim.

The US national was sexually abused at the tribal area tourist resort, Fort Munro, on July 16 where she was on a trip. Acting on her complaint, the Border Military Police arrested the prime suspect, ‘M’ (21), also said to be an American citizen.

When the story surfaced online, it caused an outrage among netizens who condemned the “shameless” act, demanding strict action for the perpetrator.

They said the cause for such crimes is a lack of justice.

Some netizens pointed out that if Pakistanis aren’t safe in this country, how can foreigners be.
