Or­phans rights pro­tec­tion bill

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - SHEYZADI

The Se­nate passed a bill for ask­ing the govern­ment to pro­tect the rights of unat­tended or­phans upto the age of 15 and to pro­vide them free ed­u­ca­tion and other fa­cil­i­ties. There was a re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion and wel­fare bill that pro­vides for cre­at­ing a wel­fare fund.

Un­der the bill, the govern­ment is bound to ad­dress all of the needs of the or­phan. If an or­phan is forced to beg or found with other crimes the man will be put be­hind the bars. I thus re­quest the govt to ad­dress the mat­ter be­cause it is its moral re­spon­si­bil­ity. — Via email
