Qazi Elahi started this petition to Prime Minister of Pakistan Mr Imran Khan

Pakistan is a developing country which is merely 73 years old.  Since 1947 we have come along way and made great progress in a lot of areas but still have neglected some very important matters such as abuse towards women and children. Every daughter, mother, wife, sister also have rights to live in the society and should be treated equally. I belong to a practicing Islamic family Alhumdulillah and have been taught that when the daughter of the holy Prophet in Islam used to walk in, the prophet would stand up to honor her and yet we don't abide by this and do the opposite.  

An NGO called white ribbon Pakistan reported that 47034 woman faced sexual abuse, over 1500 cases of honor crimes where registered and more than 1800 cases of domestic abuse and over 5500 kidnappings of women took place between 2004 and 2016. According to media reports more than 51241 cases of violence against women were reported between January 2011 and June 2017. Conviction rates remain low with the account in just 2.5% of reported cases ultimately being convicted by the courts. This information was from www.europarl.europa.au 

I love Pakistan, and am a proud Pakistani but if we all stay mute change will not come. These statistics that I have used are abnormally high and something should be done about this. So much has changed since Mr. Imran Khan has come in to power for the better but this issue is still at large. The actual number of violence against women and children is a lot higher as  hundreds and thousands of cases go un heard. I am a patriotic Pakistani therefore am raising my concern so that these numbers go lower and I can hold my head up high and walk with respect as a overseas national Pakistani. There should be a special team in place to hear women. At the moment the law demands a complaint from a relative but the problem is that in most cases the relatives are the culprits. The army defends the country at borders but what about the monsters who are weakening the country from the inside. This special team should have the authority to take action and even extract a person from danger. Please help women and strengthen the laws against violence so that every perpetrator has fear of the laws in place. 

Some women in Pakistan die suffering but never complain because they fear the ways in which the police will speak to them and others don't have the means of complaining. In other cases the relatives and the neighbors stay quiet of fear as they don't want trouble from the family doing this crime.

Now the questions are...

What can be done to help these women and children?

Should the laws in place for this offence be strengthened?

Why do the offenders get away?

How many more women and children will suffer at the hands of these evil minds?

Why do these people think they will get away.

I really admire our Prime Minister Mr. Imran Khan and hope he and his government will look in to this matter and resolve this issue. Every life matters. I am no politician, just doing my bit for the nation. I will probably get hated by some for raising my voice against this sensitive issue but I feel it is my duty as a human and as a Pakistani and above all as a Muslim.
