Do­mes­tic vi­o­lence

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - F ZA­MAN

Do­mes­tic vi­o­lence is a type of be­hav­iour with an­other part­ner. It con­sists of rape, phys­i­cal vi­o­lence, abuse and stalk­ing. It can af­fect both men and women in­clud­ing the chil­dren. Women are mostly vic­tims of do­mes­tic vi­o­lence, as women are al­ways in dan­ger and are not safe from their fam­i­lies. In a UN re­port, 35.5% of women and 28.5% of men have ex­pe­ri­enced do­mes­tic vi­o­lence. 70 and 90% of women suf­fer from do­mes­tic vi­o­lence.

It can also af­fect the be­hav­iour of chil­dren. Re­spect of women is grad­u­ally de­clin­ing that leads to sever losses. The women be­ing part of ev­ery so­ci­ety should have been re­spected, but un­for­tu­nately, ig­no­rance has put their re­spect at risk. There­fore, we must say no to do­mes­tic vi­o­lence. The hu­man rights or­ga­ni­za­tions must take very se­ri­ous steps in this con­nec­tion. —Tur­bat, Balochis­tan
