the global exploitation of women...

After what have been happening around here for the past few years, Pakistan is now surely seen a place where women are treated as commodities.

I'm talking about some of those high-profile rape cases including that of Mukhtar Mai, Dr.Shazia, & Sonia Naz etc. There is no doubt about the exploitation of women all over the world whether it is in the East or in the West. Pakistan is surely not an exception.

Can you imagine that the only state of New York may have a lot more cases of rape reported than those taking place in the whole of Pakistan in a particular year.

As far as President Musharaf's remarks about the current situation in his own country are concerned, whether what he says is true or false, it does not suit head of a state to talk about his own countrymen in front of the International media like this.

The exploitation is there, not only in Pakistan, rather, all over the world. And only strict implemetation of Law can ensure eradication of such evils from our societies.

There have been very very few occasions when I have agreed with or supported President Musharaf, but, at his point of investigating those NGOs that have been using such incidents to raise their profile or to gain personal gains causing damage to Pakistan's image internationally, I strongly support him.

Quiet true...i have been thinking about this before as well
why are these NGOs so keen on getting justices to all these ladies?
Why dont they do something before hand so that nothing such happens again!
They protest about women rights.. i think they just Disgrace the womenhood, these are a few internal matter of the country. y are we taking such things on an international level?
it means that Pakistan is a State where there is no justice(somehow or surely this is true)
but still things can be handeled in a much better and sophisticated ways..!
anyways..!
keep up the good work Hassan!

well written... its indeed a sad state of affairs and one needing addressing all over the world...

in many ways even human relations are becoming commodified as people are becoming more and more obsessed with monetary worth and losing sight of values...

thanks for dropping by, keep well...

I disagree with the NGO thing to a certain degree.The root of the thought that NGO's are doing this to prance upon the morsel of few more contracts is that NGO's are an organization consisting of westernized peole who gather to make money and advance western values.This is untrue.

Hasan Mubarak said...

I agree with you too... But the point is most of the Foreign NGOs have been doing this all over the world. It really is true for many of them, although, exceptions are always there...

AsianSmiles said...

Ahm..
NGO's are usually funded by multilateral organizations or philantropists that share the same "cause". I agree with you that some NGOs may be doing things on a micro level, maybe because their funds are limited too?

I guess mergers among NGOs may produce more comprehensive programs. I'm not sure if it's possible in PK... what do you think?

Hasan Mubarak said...

The best way out would be involvement of some Government Agency for the purpose of monitoring the way these NGOs operate.

But, as we all know, most of the Governments in the developing world can not be trusted for transparent conduction of such monitory measures.

Mergers can be an option, but many NGOs may have some political connections to different parties in Pakistan. In that case it seems quite difficult.

What is mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is a rare disease caused as a result of malignant cancerous cells lining the patient's body cavities such as chest, abdominal region or the area surrounding the heart.Your legal rights:

Corporations that manufacture asbestos products have known about the dangers of asbestos-related diseases for more than six decades. In an effort to increase profit, they kept this information quiet, putting workers and families at risk.

Working with asbestos causes serious diseases. Unfortunately, many corporations thought they would be able to cut corners and make a large profit at the expense of endangering workers. Fortunately, there are laws that help to protect those individuals that have been harmed by exposure to asbestos-related products.

Spread the information and help as many as possible.
Thanks
