- I will always count on your statement that Pakistan will be “Riasat e Madina” and if you don’t hang these monsters raping and killing children and women in the open nothing can ever be changed ... just make one example. Public execution is what I demand @ImranKhanPTI— Feroze Khan (@ferozekhaan) September 10, 2020

Mother of two gang raped in front of her kids (she’d run out of gas on the motorway). Two men broke through her windows, dragged her into the bushes to brutalise her. pic.twitter.com/ZzluWbeoPF— Armeena 🦋 (@ArmeenaRK) September 9, 2020
Pakistan's famous journalist Iqrar ul hassan shared words of grief and was sad for mother of 3 Children.He said,
One day it’s a 5 year old child. The other, a 4 month old baby. Today it’s a transgender activist, who was asking for protection a year ago. What do we have to say about ourselves as a nation. We can’t protect anyone. Except our egos. #JusticeforGulPanra— Ayesha Omar (@ayesha_m_omar) September 9, 2020
Churails actress shared her words on this sad Motorway incident. She posted on her Instagram and urged higher authorities to punish these rapists.
خاتون کو رات بارہ بجے کے بعد کسی ایمرجنسی میں بھی باہر نکلنا پڑ سکتا ہے۔ پٹرول پورا بھی ہو تو بھی گاڑی خراب ہو سکتی ہے، عام شہری جی ٹی روڈ سے زیادہ موٹر وے اور لاہور رنگ روڈ کو محفوظ سمجھتا ہے۔ سی سی پی او صاحب !! ممکن ہے فرانس نہیں، خاتون ریاستِ مدینہ سمجھ کر باہر نکلی ہو۔— Iqrar ul Hassan Syed (@iqrarulhassan) September 10, 2020
Actress Ushna Shah wrote, "The irony that I tweeted "I’m okay with this" to a video of a rapist being stoned to death an hour prior to news of mother raped in front of children on motorway and to days after news of five-year-old Marwah, shows how deep in trouble we are as a society."View this post on Instagram
Every day a new case of rape, murder and heinous crimes! Why is it that the Islamic Republic Laws only apply to the harmless people, the poor & other minorities? Why haven’t we seen actions taken against these criminals, rapists and inhuman people? How many mothers, sisters and daughters will get rapped and murdered for our politicians to take action and expose such sick minded people? When their own daughters and sisters will be the victims? Shame on us, shame on our highway police that never respond on time. Shame on our government that can’t provide any sense of security to it’s citizens and shame on us for thinking Pakistan is a safe country for any single woman driving her kids back home! It’s heartbreaking, blood boiling and extremely sad to see this news!
Shan Shahid reacted on this heinous act and tweeted;

This sad incident happened on Motorway when a lady was going to Gujranwala along with her 3 children unfortunately she has to stop near Gujarpura due to patrol shortage, Two armed attacked on them and broke the screens of the car. They took women and her children in a nearby field at gunpoint. They gang-raped the women in front of their children in a field. They also snatched her jewelry and 1 lac rupees, than ran away. So far, twelve men have been taken into custody over their suspected involvement in the rape of a woman on the Sialkot-Lahore motorway.
