‘Steps taken to protect rights of women, children’

Karachi: Adviser to the Chief Minister Sindh on Information Sharmila Farooqui has said that the provincial government has taken all possible measures to protect the rights of the children and women, adding that the 18th Amendment had provided protection to children.

While talking to a delegation of the Human Rights Protection International in her office on Saturday, she admitted that poverty was a huge factor behind people who sent their children out to work or, even worse, sell them to those who used them as labourers.

The advisor added that the government passed a bill providing protection to working women against harassment at workplace. She said that abuse cases related to children working as domestic labourers were not reported and if they wee reported, police always took action.

The adviser further said that the government was serious about redressing issues related to children’s rights and people should work together to ensure children and women got their due rights and status in society.

Separately, Farooqui ordered an audit of the advertisement section of the Sindh Information Department for 2009-10.

The purpose of the audit was to eradicate corruption and implement transparency in the department, she said in a statement.

The adviser added that the advertisement section was being computerised and release orders were being displayed on the computer in order to end corruption in the department.

She said that she was making all-out efforts to maintain a close and good working relationship between the media and the Information Department.
