Justice delayed

Justice delayed

Khadija Siddiqui, a young lawyer, was stabbed 23 times by her classmate. She survived the attack and since then she has been fighting for justice. Her story displays the weakness of the country’s judicial system. On Wednesday (May 17), she appeared on a TV show and shared her story. It was painful to hear about the difficulties she faced. She shared that there were a group of people ready to defend the accused. It is unfortunate that we are living in an unjust society. A victim seeks for the support of people while the accused lives guilt-free.

It has been a year since the promising lawyer was brutally stabbed. Instead of giving a secret punishment, the accused is set free to sit in a law exam along with the same aspiring lawyer he attacked a year ago. The silence of the people will make the innocent victim suffer in silence. It is time the people stood for the victim.
