Women Rights – Part 1

Commando.jpgPresident Pervez Musharraf would announce his future agenda on the rights of women and the empowerment of poor in a seminar on December 5 here in Islamabad. He would take the nation into confidence in this regard, he added. Federal Information Minister Muhammad Ali Durrani also warned MMA not to do politics of agitation and take lesson from the philosophy of Maulana Mufti Mehmood and Abul’ala Maudoodi who, during their democratic struggle, remained within the ambit of Constitution. “Both the religious leaders never violated the law during their political career,” Durrani said while addressing a press conference at the PTV Headquarters here on Saturday.

I wonder if everything being done in this respect is a step in the right direction, or is it not? What is MMA so scoffed up about?

    Another thing … Bill or no bill … tahaffuz e niswaan or no tahaffuz … the way Pakistani Men are nurtured to think about women (despite they being daughters … wives or sisters or even mothers) that thinking needs to be changed … and I’m not only talking about Rural Pakistani Men … we’ve quite a lot of jahils in urban parts too … and I’m not defending women here … since it’s the mother who nurture such men … an interesting post here

    Anyhow … MMA and rest of parties are full of politicians who play dirty politics just like that … they give a damn to what is REALLY happening in their own villages by their own ppl … (and maybe themselves included) … Parliaments look more like family get-togthers with bhateejas,bhanjis and betas and bettiis of olden (non-graduate) politicians … what do they know about issues ??? when they’re getting huge sums of pays and allowances just for fighting and marching-off from house as protests … who cares …!

    This is a country where age old laws are still waiting to be implemented .. nayay laws ko kaun poochta hay … A traffic policeman (sipahi) can’t ask a car violating laws with some nazim … minister or even relative of them to stop or cut chalan … coz it means risking your job and being beaten in public … so when law is in such bad shape … what this bill would do … and what newer bills would do … Time will tell … if you wish I can tell earlier than time :>

    Rather then complaining and making fun of our own home all the time we should fix it and “do whatever possible” to clean it. We need to ask ourself what have we done for our country before start insulting it.

    Only loser countries with no future make fun of themselves because the people of such countries dont know that they are in fact making fun of themselves and shooting themselves on their own foot.
