Armeena Rana Khan is well known for voicing her opinion about many social issues plaguing Pakistani society.

This time round, the actor has expressed her disdain towards the rape and murder of four-year-old Jannat from Mansehra.

The Janaan actor took to Instagram to condemn the incident and wonder when action will be taken to curb such incidences in the future.

“Meet Jannat (meaning heaven), a four-year-old brutally raped by God knows how many men. She was then thrown down a well (80ft) a few miles away from her village near Mansehra,” Khan began. “Jannat survived for four days, shivering and starving. Eventually, they found her and rushed her to the hospital but the little angel finally succumbed to her injuries as the facilities just weren’t there and the staff was unhelpful,” she added.

“My question is THIS! How many more Zainabs, Jannats and Nimritas is it going to take before our collective conscience is roused from its slumber” she wrote. “This could’ve been your kid! I don’t know how many times my heart’s going to break. I ask again, where is our shame? Our ghairat? Those in charge, please do something! Fund the hospitals, tighten the laws and put these disgusting criminals behind bars!”

She continued, “For the rest of us, we should raise our voices and stop violence against children. We need justice for this little kid now! What was her fault? God knows. Each time I look at this picture, it destroys my soul! May little Jannat rest in jannat!
