The sexual assault of the goat has led some on social media to ask Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan if goats also need to be modest with their appearance.

Mathira, a Pakistani actor, shared the news of the goat’s rape on Instagram and asked whether the animal also needed to “wear an abaya”.

Another Twitter user wrote, “Do naked animals have impact on men too? Now handsome PM will ask goats to cover themselves because some innocent men got aroused seeing them around as they are not robots.”

In an interview with HBO last month, Imran Khan had said, “If a woman is wearing very few clothes, it will have an impact on men unless they are robots. I mean it’s common sense. If you have a society where people haven’t seen that sort of thing it will have an impact on them.”

The comments triggered massive criticism against Imran Khan at a time when Pakistan is reeling in the aftermath of multiple cases of rape and murder, including that of Noor Mukadum, who was tortured and beheaded at a house in Islamabad.
