Civil society group expresses concern over crimes against women in Pakistan
A Pakistan based civil society organization has expressed concern over increasing crimes against women and inaction of the government and the judiciary in the country, local media said.
Transparency International Pakistan (TIP) Vice Chairperson Justice (R) Nasirah Iqbal said that the country’s founding father Muhammad Ali Jinnah had wished for men and women to work shoulder to shoulder in Pakistan but we have failed to work on his vision.
She added that for a prosperous Pakistan protection of women rights are extremely important and those committing crimes against women should be brought to justice. TIP Chairperson Yasmin Larry said that the recent Minar-e-Pakistan incident is a test case for our government and our criminal justice system.
