Here's How Pakistanis Are Emphasizing On The Need For Sex Education After Zainab's Tragedy

By Sajeer Shaikh | 12 Jan, 2018

Time and again, we shy away from the concept of sex education. It’s a conversation we don’t necessarily like to have. We go so far as to say that it’s an indecent conversation altogether. However, we forget what sex education entails and how important it can be.

Moreover, we overlook just how many lives it can save. That is the exact issue Pakistanis are taking up.


After Zainab’s murder, Pakistanis took to social media and the streets to voice their outrage

However, they did so with a few messages in mind. Not only did they wish to seek justice for Zainab, they also wanted to spread awareness about sexual abuse.

Mohammad Jibran Nasir shared his thoughts on the same on Twitter.

As did renowned singer, Shehzad Roy.

Other Pakistanis also started asking for the promotion of sex education.

While some sarcastically denounced the mindset that prevented people from seeking this important knowledge.

The idea that sex ed should be made compulsory was also shared.

One Twitter user highlighted the importance of sex ed…

…while sharing a detailed guide on the same…

…taking from personal incidents to show just how important this conversation can be.

The need for parents to serve as a guiding light was also highlighted.

Some even let their anger over the matter be known. 

Our reservations when it comes to such important matters, too, can lead to such huge tragedies. While it’s a bitter pill to swallow, and a huge change to make, it’s one that’s imperative nonetheless. Perhaps, we will have learned from this and will unanimously agree that awareness is truly the first step towards change.

What do you think? Let us know in the comments.
