While the Australian Royal Commission may be the focus of our attention at the moment, we should not forget that this is a much wider problem. Previous official investigations in Australia (inquiring into church run homes for kids)have revealed horrible examples of abuse, as have similar investigations in Canada and Ireland.
And international news today reports on this mass incident in Pakistan. And if some may want to see this as a Muslim problem, then please do a search and find that similar things happen in India.

Judicial inquiry ordered into Pakistan’s biggest child porn scandal
Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif Sunday ordered a judicial inquiry into Pakistan’s biggest child pornography scandal in Kasur, Express Tribune reports.
Shahbaz directed the Punjab home department to forward a request to the chief justice of the Lahore High Court for the constitution of a judicial commission to probe into the alleged child abuse.
The order comes a day after reports of the scandal went viral on social media.
The chief minister said the perpetrators of the incident will not be able to evade law and he assured that the government will provide justice to the victims at all costs.
Earlier on Sunday, the chief minister had summoned an emergency meeting to discuss the child abuse case. The investigation officer concerned briefed him about the incident.
