    Women disenfranchised

    The present electoral system reinforces the status quo and is not geared towards change, writes Farhatullah Babar--FRIDAY TIMES

    That women have been subjected to various forms of violence and are disempowered and discriminated against is well known. Violence against women has been rising and taking new forms. They have been killed for men’s honour, acid thrown on them, and gang raped. Newer and newer varieties of violence are invented every year against them. Sometime back, a holy man in Rawalpindi invented a new kind of violence; he inserted a red hot iron rod in his wife’s abdomen.

    Violence continues as women have little access to justice. In a broken criminal justice system where even a First Information Report (FIR) is not registered in 70 percent of criminal cases, the hope for women getting justice is remote. Absence of women in traditional jirgas has also perpetuated violence. The very value system of a jirga is based on exclusion of women.

    Early and forced marriages, marriages to resolve family feuds and customs like ‘swara’ and in tribal areas ‘ghag’ have dehumanized women. Until recently when an enlightened Islamic scholar was appointed as chairman of Council of Islamic Ideology, the Council declared laws forbidding child marriage un-Islamic and DNA tests unacceptable as primary evidence in rape cases.--''
