TV anchor brings young daughter on air to protest rape, killing of Pakistani girl

Kiran Naz, an anchor on Samaa TV in Pakistan, brought her daughter on air to highlight the reported rape and killing of 7-year-old Zainab Ansari in Kasur, Pakistan.

Naz said on Wednesday that she wanted to underline the brutal nature of the crime from a mother's perspective, according to a translation by The Quint.

"Today I am not your host ... today I am a mother and that is why I am sitting here with my daughter…. The smaller the coffin, the heavier it is. Today, Pakistan is burdened by the weight of Zainab’s coffin," she said.

Ansari was abducted on January 4 while on her way to a class.

Reports said she was raped, killed and left in a rubbish pile, before her body was found on January 9.

Samaa TV said the girl’s death sparked protests that resulted in police firing on a crowd of protesters, killing two.

The Pakistani TV network also reported that demonstrators stormed Kasur hospital.

Users of social media and news outlets were holding up Ansari's case and another report of rape and murder involving a 15-year-old girl in Tasawarabad as examples of an endemic problem in Pakistan.

One suspect in the Ansari case is also being considered for five similar crimes, according to police.

They said DNA samples were taken from at least 90 other potential suspects.
