    pakistani men have been treated like animals for hundered years,no one raised big fuss.
    as soon as pakistani female recieves punishment on buttocks ,the world goes mad.
    men have suffered this humilliating punishment and pakistanis have encouraged it.pakistani women have applauded when men recieve corporal punishment.
    why dont pakistani women applaud and encourage same treatment for themselves.
    whats acceptable treatment for me should be acceptable for women.men and women are both human.
