The Father Who Violently Beat His Daughter Has Been Arrested And The Internet Couldn’t Be Happier

By Fareeha Akhtar | 29 May, 2018

Sadly, domestic violence is very common in Pakistan. So common, in fact, that no one interferes even if the violence takes place in public. It is written off as a private affair and even the police refuse to take any action against it.

Recently, a video started circulating on the internet of a father brutally beating his daughter. At first, there was no context to it. Then, it was reported that the incident had taken place in DG Khan, and the father was beating his daughter because she tried to stop him from carrying out illicit activities with his daughter-in-law. The ‘activities’ in question were unwanted, as per the daughter-in-law.

Watch the video below, for context.

TRIGGER WARNING: Violence

However, in a surprising turn of events, this incident wasn’t written off.

People shared the video, the media covered the incident, and action was demanded.

Lo and behold! Early this morning, the CM’s SRU Unit informed the world that the man had been arrested.

More than the news, however, was the picture accompanying it. It was a powerful picture of the right sort of empowerment. A man convicted of beating his daughter, being taken to court by four female police officers.

The arrest and the picture sent Twitter into an outpour of celebration.

Meesha Shafi was very pleased (and with good reason).

The Punjab Government was praised.

This is definitely a victory for women, all over Pakistan.

This incident and the subsequent arrest shows us that change is slowly but surely taking place in Pakistan. It’s heartwarming to see that justice has been served, in the most beautiful of ways!
