It is true that Usman Mirza’s case has become a challenge for the state, the video of the incident was seen all over the world but due to our weak system in most cases plaintiffs and witnesses back off due to fear and money but now it is the responsibility of the state. It is our duty to bring this case to a logical conclusion so that no influential person would again dare to play with the law and humiliate humanity.
