Women Abuse is one of the major issues faced by Pakistan. Pakistan is an Islamic country and in Islam women have some high level of regard but still due to the growing illiteracy rate people are unaware of this fact, and they are disrespecting women all around in the country.
According to a 2011 poll of experts by the Thomson Reuters Foundation Poll, Pakistan is the third most dangerous country for women in the world. It cited the more than 1,000 women and girls murdered in “honor killings” every year and reported that 90 percent of Pakistani women suffer from domestic violence.
A challenging irony for females in Pakistan is that, should a victim talk up about physical or sex-related abuse, she is seen as having missing her and her family members pride. Many rapes go unreported as the sufferer worries she will become useless in Pakistani community. Often, females will convert to their employers; family members they can believe in. It’s a generally unseen way of charitable organisation but one that can be essential to their success.
Pakistan is a low-income Muslim country with approximately 176 million inhabitants. Only 36 percent of Pakistani women can read and write, and the employment rate for women is 22.2 percent, as compared with an average of 77.8 percent for men, with higher rates in urban areas. How a women can speak for her if she cannot even read or write. Women are treated as slaves in this male dominant country.
Records shows that most of the women who are being abused committed suicides, they lose hope immediately. Why are the people in the country are still quite? why is there no serious action taken place? If not now then when will these innocent and beautiful creature of Allah will found their justice?
