Lady constable Faiza was slapped by lawyer, Ahmed Mukhtar, who has now been let go.
Lady constable, Faiza, had requested lawyer, Ahmed Mukhtar, to remove his car from a specific checkpoint since he parked his car wrong on 5th September. Ahmed Mukhtar considered this an insult and raised his hand on the lady constable. Consequently, the police arrested the lawyer on the complaint of the constable and registered a case against him.

However, now, the lawyer walks free. The local court judge, who heard the case, released the suspect due to an error in the FIR.

The lady constable, obviously devastated, decided to resign.
Lady Constable has resigned from the job. She is enough mentally upset, both by the Police goons and another evil sect of the society, the lawyers. I appeal to all that mention the photos of lawyers from Sheikhupura who are members of the bar to expose them. Pay your moral duty. pic.twitter.com/Nm917oq8IX

The authorities in return are providing problematic statements regarding the case.
Dr Shehbaz Gill, Chief Spokesperson of Chief Minister of Punjab, claimed to fully support Faiza and admitted what happened to her was a ” saddening incident”. Nevertheless, he called Faiza “emotional” and went on to say that this lady just wants the lawyer to remain behind the bars.
Dr. Gill further adds that “it is not possible to add charges of firing or stabbing to the FIR just because someone just hit her once. That’d be wrong.”
میرے اس بیان کے آدھے حصہ کو ہیڈ لائن بنا دیا گیا ہے۔ میں نے کہا تھا ہم خاتون کے ساتھ کھڑے ہیں کھڑے رہیں گے اور انصاف دلائیں گے۔ لیکن جو نہیں ہوا وہ مقدمہ میں شامل نہیں کر سکتے۔ تھپڑ مارنے کے مقدمہ پر گولی مارنے نے کی دفعات نہیں لگا سکتے۔ سچ کے ساتھ رہیں گے اور انصاف دلائیں گے pic.twitter.com/wWfko2tOSZ

However, enraged by this lack of justice, people took to Twitter to weigh in. Meesha Shafi shared her thoughts.

Others also weighed in.
اندازہ لگائیے یہ شخص وزیر اعلی کا ترجمان ہے،تو ان کے مطابق کسی خاتون کو سرعام تھپڑ مارنا کوئی بڑی بات نہیں،یہ سلوک ان کے گھر کی عورتوں کے ساتھ ہو تو اس کو پتہ چلے،انہی کی ایما پر تصویریں کھینچنے کے بعد دھکے مار کر اسکو فارغ کر دیا گیا،اور استعفیٰ پر مجبور کیا pic.twitter.com/UiCEVq0Fya

Will justice ever be served in our country? Do our women, and all those who don’t have any concrete power, have to keep bearing such wrongdoings? Share your thoughts in the comments.
