An unsavoury fact
These are the worst times for womenfolk in Pakistani society. There’s so much hype but nothing practical-only cosmetic measures - for the overall welfare and development of women in Pakistan. One can quote countless unsavoury facts regarding the sufferings and sorrows of women both urban and rural in Pakistan. When it comes to women rights, promoting active women participation in socioeconomic life and inspiring a culture of respect for womenfolk, our rulers are fickle, fanatical and misogynist. The present PML (N) government appears to have many misogynist men, including Ministers in the Federal Cabinet. A vile thing that was done, the other day, in august lower House of the Parliament against an erudite journalist and writer turned politician, was completely out of character and in conflict with decency, decorum and ethics and grammar of politics.
We all must, irrespective of our ideological, political and sectarian affinities and affiliations, make the Federal Defence Minister realize to repent for the ugliness of what he had done. He should feel shame and should not repeat such a foul language in the session of the august National Assembly.
Let’s change everything - negative thoughts and emotions into positive thoughts and emotions. Let’s make the hardest decisions to create a clean and non-corrupt, ethical society. Let’s stay together and work for it and for this we must respect our womenfolk in this society as ordained by Allah in the Holy Quran and actualise women rights as enshrined and guaranteed in the Constitution of Pakistan. —Islamabad
