News of seven-year-old Zainab’s ruthless rape and murder has rocked Pakistan to the core. The world has formed in united protest, with hashtag #JusticeForZainab gripping social media, plunging it into darkness. Actress Saba Qamar appeared on the ‘Ek Nayee Subha With Farah’ show to discuss the harrowing topic and was visibly very upset by Zainab’s rape and murder. What started out as a discussion swiftly turned into Saba giving a revolutionizing speech that was both heartbreaking and incredibly moving.
Here are 15 inspiring quotes from her speech.
On making sure we teach our children how to fight back.
On how women have NO right to ever be physically abused.
On how we must always intervene and never shy away if a woman is being beaten.
…And how a man will never attain privilege to beat a woman.
On how to always step forward if you see something is out of place
On being very aware of your surroundings
On never waiting for permission, rather seizing a problem by its horns
On not to rely on anyone but yourself
And to be a fighter. Always.
And remind yourself every day that you are one.
To take matters into your own hands until a rule of law is set in stone
…So that you also don’t deem yourself a failure in a lawless society
On keeping your safety first and foremost your top priority
On questioning the authorities that govern our nation
And on revolting a corrupt system.
Watch Saba’s aching speech now. Rest in peace Zainab. We failed you.
