These Pakistani celebrities are standing up for Zohra Shah

Incidents, where people with a bit of affluence misuse the power that comes with their ascribed statuses, have become quite common. It’s sad how the people in our society have become negligent of basic human rights and have made this place extremely unsafe for the people who come from unprivileged backgrounds.  A similar incident which revolves around the misconduct towards a housekeeper has been making rounds on the social media platforms.


Zohra Shah was an 8-year-old girl who was allegedly beaten to death by her employers because she had let some expensive caged parrots free

According to reports, the incident took place in Bahria Town Rawalpindi. It is being said that the girl was working for the house for a few months and was hired to take care of a baby of the owners. The girl freed some caged parrots of the owners which led to some serious physical abuse and the owners eventually ended up killing her. The body of the girl was left in a hospital, and upon investigation, the owners were arrested. An FIR has been registered and it is being said by the police that this was possibly not the first instance of physical abuse by the family as the girl ‘s body showed marks from previous injuries.
