LAHORE: The number of child abuse cases have been rapidly growing in Pakistan due to a lack of proper preventive and protective measures adopted by the government, as well as the parents, Sahil, a non-government organisation (NGO) working for children’s rights, said on Thursday, at a press conference held at the Lahore Press Club. Child abuse is a global phenomenon and the developed nations had adopted strict measures to protect their children from such incidents as they could ruin a person’s entire life, a Sahil representative, Iftikhar Mubarak and other officials said. The victims of child abuse had to face many complex psychological problems throughout their lives, they added.

According to a study conducted by the NGO, a break up analysis of gender continued to show that the number of female reported cases of child sexual abuse were higher than the male cases.
