Pakistani women want equality and respect: Mira Sethi

Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday observed that sex crimes and corruption had sharply increased in societies, saying these issues were not confined to one country

The premier commented that only one percent of the sex crimes are being reported in the country as the other 99% of the crimes of similar nature have to be fought by society

  “There are two sorts of crime in society, one is corruption and the other is sex crime

Sex crime has risen sharply in our society, that is rape and child abuse and only one percent of this are reported,” he said, adding, “The other 99 percent, I believe, society has to fight it

The same is the case with corruption… society has to make corruption unacceptable

Unfor­tunately, when you have leadership which is corrupt over time, they make corruption acceptable
