Pakistan reports rape of a woman every two hours: Survey

Islamabad, 13/10: A woman is raped in Pakistan every two hours, according to a recent survey, highlighting the unsafe conditions for women in the country where cases of honour killing are also rampant.



The survey, which was conducted by Pakistani channel SAMAA TV’s Investigation Unit (SIU) based on the data collected from the Punjab province’s home department and Ministry of Human Rights, also found that while the rape cases of women spiked, the conviction rate remained an abysmal 0.2 per cent.


“Newly collected and compiled data showed that as many as 21,900 women were reported to have been raped in the country from 2017 to 2021. This meant that around 12 women were raped across the country daily, or one woman every two hours,” said the survey.
