Meet Jannat (means heaven) A four-year-old girl brutally raped by God knows how many men. She was then thrown down a well (80ft) a few miles away from her village near Mansehra. Jannat survived for 4 days shivering and starving, eventually, they found her and rushed her to the hospital. This little angel finally succumbed to her injuries as the facilities just weren’t there and the staff was unhelpful. My question is THIS! How many more Zainabs, Jannat's and Nimritas is it going to take before our collective conscience is roused from its slumber? This could’ve been your kid! I don’t know how many times my heart’s going to break. I ask again, where is our Shame? Our ghairat? Those in charge pls do something! Fund the hospitals, tighten the laws and put these disgusting criminals behind bars. For the rest of us, we should raise our voice and stop violence against children. We need justice for this little kid NOW. What was her fault? God knows, each time I look at this picture, it destroys my soul! May little Jannat rest in Jannat! 💔💔 #justiceforjannat #rip #stopviolenceagainstchildren #stoprape
She said along with the rapist of Jannat, the government is equally responsible for her death. She also lashed out at the dreadful way the infant was raped, physical tortured and thrown in a deep well for four days. The infant cried endlessly in pain for help for four days, said Armeena Khan in her heartbreaking social media post.
She slammed people for their silence over no outrage on the government’s ineptness for inadequate medical facilities. The furious Armeena Khan, asked “where is our shame? Our ghairat? In a social media message.
In another post on her Instagram, she cited the cases of eight-year-old Zainab and Nimrita, a medical student from Karachi, who succumbed to spineless physical abuse and assault.
See this face? Yes, this could’ve been your daughter. 4 yr old raped, thrown in a well where she starved and shivered for 4 days. You know what killed her in the end? Lack of facilities at the hospital. Where’s the outrage now? Where’s our ghairat now? 💔 #Justiceforjannat pic.twitter.com/u4LIe0kRRp

Expressing her annoyance on the inability of the government to curb the sexual abuse of females, Armeena wrote: “This could’ve been your kid! I don’t know how many times my heart’s going to break. I ask again, where is our Shame? Our ghairat? Those in charge pls do something! Fund the hospitals, tighten the laws and put these disgusting criminals behind bars.”
Adding that “What was her fault? God knows, each time I look at this picture, it destroys my soul! May little Jannat rest in Jannat!”
While she implored the authorities to tighten the justice process and swiftly punish the culprits of rape and sexual assault she also directed people to raise voice for the justice for rape victims.
Meanwhile, reports tell that Jannat, from Mansehra, died after spending four days in the well nearby her village, possibly after being raped and abducted. After being kidnapped from outside her home, pedophiles raped and dumped her inside a barren 80-feet deep well.
According to the family, Jannat was denied proper medical treatment and that the hospital staff was not supportive.
