Police in Pakistan have arrested 15 people believed to be linked to the rape of a woman on a major highway, an incident that has attracted national outcry with demands for greater justice for victims of sexual violence.

Several celebrities are demanding justice and have said to hang the rapists publicly. 

However, singer and social worker Shehzad Roy has shared that he is against such punishment.

Roy, who is an avid child rights activist, took to Twitter to share his thoughts about the matter. "Whoever is demanding to hang any criminal publicly should not forget that there is enough research available that 'violence breeds violence'," he wrote.

He further added, “I have done a lot to save kids from sexual abuse & corporal punishment. Rapists, child molesters, or criminals like them should be punished with the full force of law. I am against giving any punishment publicly,” he reiterated, adding, “Do you want our young kids to see bodies hanging on chowks, chorahas and markets?”
