Abuse of girls

Sir: The abuse of girls and women in Pakistani society is prevalent and growing at an alarming rate as suggested by evidence.

Rape, kidnapping, domestic abuse and the so-called ‘honour killings’ are injustices that constitute chilling statistics in a new report by the Human Rights Watch, according to which between 50 percent to 90 percent of Pakistan’s 82 million girls and women are victims of violence.

The widespread problems are coming to light at a critical time for Pakistan. Many believe that the country cannot move forward or progress whilst allowing the rights of girls and women to be compromised. I do not think that this is the country that Muslims of the subcontinent had dreamt of 64 years ago. How can we call ourselves a Muslim nation with a bitter reality such as this?
