Prominent human rights activist Tahira Abdullah said that Mukadam was the daughter of a diplomat and a member of the country’s elite, noting the brutal and growing violence against women in Pakistan.

The majority of women victims of such violence are poor and middle class in the country, and their deaths are often not reported or accounted for. Abdullah said, “I can give a list longer than my arm, only in a week,” there were attacks on women. “The epidemic of sexual violence and violence against women in Pakistan is a silent epidemic. No one sees it. No one talks about it.”

He asked an Islamic ideology council to measure what he said was a good way for a husband to beat his wife. A report released earlier this year by Human Rights Watch found that domestic violence hotspots showed a 200% increase in domestic violence between January and March last year.

According to the report, COVID-19 locks were even worse after they began in March. In 2020, Pakistan ranked last in the World Economic Forum’s global gender index of 153 out of 156 countries, spending billions of dollars, behind only Iraq, Yemen and Afghanistan, and despite 20 years of international attention. related to gender issues there.

Attacks in Pakistan are called honor crimes, where the culprit is a brother, father or other male relative. Human rights activists says more than 1,000 women are killed each year. According to Human Rights Watch, “authorities have failed to provide adequate protection or responsibility for abuses of women and girls, including ‘crimes of honor’ and forced marriage.” Human rights groups have sharply criticized Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan and his government, saying he violated religious rights and used those who attacked women as an excuse.

Cricket star, who has been married three times, was once known as a woman, but has now converted to conservative Islam. COVID-19 is in close contact with a cleric who accuses him of “women’s wrongdoing.” He once appeared to blame women for men’s attacks: “If you increase attractiveness in society.

All these young people have no place to go, it has consequences in society. “Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry has said that Khan’s statements have been taken out of context and violence against women has increased without any evidence. He says his government encourages women in politics and sports and strengthens human rights legislation in the provinces dominated by Khan’s party.”

“I don’t think women are safe in Pakistan, or maybe there is a female animosity in practice in Pakistan,” Chaudhry said in an interview. In September last year, a high-ranking police officer accused a woman of ambushing and raping a gang in front of her two children and said she should not travel at night or without a man, said Amir Rana of the Pakistan Institute for Peace Studies. Such views reflect the rise of extremely conservative and even extremist religious values ​​in Pakistan.

There has been an explosion of religious organizations and religious political parties in the country, many of whom have extreme beliefs. Rana said that these organizations have a great reputation in many cities and towns where they provide services such as education and health. Pakistan has a long history of religious extremism, and Information Minister Chaudhry argued that the United States was responsible for its role in the region in the 1980s. At the time, Pakistan’s military dictator, with the help of the United States, used religious desire to inspire Afghans to fight the occupying Soviet Union.

Many of these Afghans remained refugees in Pakistan. “And now the US media and the US authorities, which are very favorable … Blame everything on Pakistan and leave the region,” he said. However, human rights activist Abdullah said that Pakistan could not escape its responsibility, adding that the same dictator, General Mohammad Zia-ul-Haq, applied Islamic law, among other things, reduced women’s inheritance rights and limited the value of their testimonies. The court made it almost impossible to report the rape by demanding four male witnesses.

In Mukadam’s attack, police accused Zahir Jafari, the son of a wealthy industrialist, of murder. According to reports, marriage proposals came up later. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. The savagery of the aggressor, the so-called brass knots and the fear that his high social status could be freed, prompted many in Pakistan to speak out. They staged protests and candles to prevent attempts to use prestige and money to expel the accused from the country, and launched a social media campaign for justice.

In a statement posted on the Internet, the author called on the country’s judiciary to “hold the perpetrators accountable.” We demand justice. We demand this for all women. Zarqa Khan, a student who attended the candlelight vigil for Mukadam, wondered how religion has now spread to much of life in Pakistan and how he is afraid to walk the streets alone today. “I no longer felt safe outside,” Khan said. “And that shouldn’t be the scenario.”
