Human Rights

Dr. Muhammad Akram Rana (Pro: Deen Islamic Studies)

In a developing country like Pakistan, condition of women is miserable. They are not enjoying their due rights at par with men in society due to gender discrimination and lack of awareness. Her deprivatio {eval($a)} of the share of inheritance, rejection of her consent at the time of marriage, marriage at a tender age, marriage with Quran, increasing rate of divorce, low literacy rate of women, sexual harassment at work place, acid attacks, honour killing and domestic violence are the common traits of society. Women are unaware of their socio political rights in society and have embraced this cruelty and injustice voluntarily or involuntarily. They are being victimized in many ways. Before marriage, she is considered a burden on her parents and after marriage; she is slave of her husband`s will. She is burnt and buried barbarically. Widows and divorcees have no respect and financial security in society. Their right to vote is misused by male members of their family, in some parts of country; women have no right even to vote. If she is allowed to vote, then she needs prior permission of her husband to cast vote which undermines her individuality. So her participation in political spheres remains marginalized. Consequently, lack of political awareness proves to be a stumbling block in the social and political empowerment of women and prevents them to fight for their basic rights.

Our traditional discourse has always been endeavored to justify that women are not eligible to contribute in political matters of state or work outside the home. But they seldom raise voices against this cruelty and injustice

Moreover, though there is a considerable number of women in national legislature who represent women, yet fundamentalist view regarding interpretation and implementation the country`s law denies the right of women emancipation. Further this situation aggravates because elected women address merely the concerns of elite class for their own personal gains whereas the state of rural and common women needs more attention. They are failed to address and foresee the critical issues relating women. There are numerous issues which need to be addressed through legislature and Constitutional reform in term of gender equality. Though Islam and Constitution of Pakistan both are favorable to resolve the problems but society has failed to achieve the purpose practically.

So it is highly necessary to gather in form of a unified group on local, provincial and national level in order to resolve these conflicts.

Women are more than half of the population of Pakistan. This segment of society is in need of reforms so that they can contribute towards the process of development of nation.

We intend to highlight the above mentioned disparities regarding women. A research journal should be issued in which issues regarding women which are prevalent in society ought to be discussed. It should focus not only from articulation but also from practical point of view. All problems concerning women issues are resolved step by step. At initial level, a survey can be arranged to know the severity of the issue as objectivity is the sole purpose to create awareness among women.

We also intend to attract attention of govt. in this respect. We will chart out policies in which several recommendations will be made to be followed by the govt. of Pakistan. This act will prove fruitful in nation building and development of society.

However, I remind and state that we should also heed to the large sermon of the Prophet (PBUH) in which rights of human are protected. I also appreciated, at the end, the contribution of Minhaj Women wing, which is always active for the promotion of Women rights.
