The detailed report on BBC Urdu also mentions about a similar press mistake, which occurred in Lahore many years ago.

BBC about a month ago reported that there is rise in sexual assaults in the US army. And yesterday it was CNN, which presented the following facts,
‘Reports of sexual assaults among U.S. military service members rose 11 percent last year, according to a study released by the Pentagon on Tuesday.
Some 3,230 reports of sexual assaults across all of the services were made during fiscal year 2009, which ended on September 30, 2009. That was up from the fiscal year 2008 number of 2,923 sexual assaults reported.’
And the Time’s magazine story starts as,
‘What does it tell us that female soldiers deployed overseas stop drinking water after 7 p.m. to reduce the odds of being raped if they have to use the bathroom at night? Or that a soldier who was assaulted when she went out for a cigarette was afraid to report it for fear she would be demoted — for having gone out without her weapon? Or that, as Representative Jane Harman puts it, "a female soldier in Iraq is more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire.’
What I want to assert is, about the state of women in Pakistani Army. If the army of the world’s most civilized and well educated country can go through problems like these, then what about ours. And if anything like sexual violence occurs, will it ever be reported.
