Women in Pakistan

Women in Pakistan don’t just suffer from domestic violence, but they are also face countless challenges when they step out of their homes. The recent incident in which Samina Sindhu, a famous singer of Larkana, was shot dead demonstrates the lawlessness that has engulfed our country. The deceased’s family is reportedly being pressurised by influential leaders to drop the case against the man who brutally killed the singer. The recurrence of such incidents against women in varied forms has paralysed our entire society and shattered Jinnah’s dream of a tolerant, progressive and peaceful Pakistan.

It is time the authorities concerned took the necessary steps to combat male chauvinism that prevails throughout the country. The authorities concerned should ensure a fair investigation in the Samina murder case. The culprits charged with the heinous crime should be taken to task.
