CSA, or child sexual abuse, is probably one of the least acknowledged and least explored forms of child abuse in Pakistan. This is demonstrated by the fact there have been no prior studies or researches undertaken; children and even adults are unaware about this form of abuse and are totally ignorant about how to prevent it. There are no monitoring bodies investigating complaints and neither are the people aware of any institutional mechanisms of redress. The cultural taboos in Pakistan render the issue of CSA very difficult to deal with.
CSA is so prevalent in our society that it demands a permanent strategy to empower the victims of sexual abuse and torture so that they can resist societal pressures and lead normal lives afterwards.
