May Allah help us all,” the actor-turned-activist shared.#JusticeForFarishta If we claim tht we derive our constitution from Quran, then demons like Zainab/Farishta's rapists/murderers guilty of Fasaad fil Ardh should be killed in a "PAINFUL MANNER" (example Stoned to Death or crucifixion till death).

Subsequently, they reported the matter to the local police, who refused to file the first information report (FIR), thus delaying the search for the girl.The father claimed that he had visited the Shahzad Town police station several times with a request to lodge the FIR – but to no avail.Have something to add to the story?
