Human rights violations:
In this modern world, where numerous changes are occurring, there human rights violations are also increasing constantly. An ideal society is based on social justice and protection of the basic rights of every individual. It is a famous saying of Hazart Ali (R.A) that a pagan society can exist but a society with injustice cannot survive. The safety of life and property, education, social and economic justice are the basic rights.
Human Rights violations and Our Society:
Unfortunately, our society is famous for human rights violations. Here people have to face injustice in every field of life. Killings, rapes, street-crimes and tyrant attitude with women are very common. Women in tribal and feudal dominated areas are made the victim of oppression and discrimination.
Child labor is also another severe violation of human rights. The school going children are used as workforce in factories and homes. Honor killing and tradition of “Wani” are practiced in these areas. Marriage with Quran is also a very severe king of violation of human and women rights. It is not only the violation of commands of the Holy Quran but also contempt of it.
Oppression and injustice of police is also another kind of violation of human rights. Police is politicized here. Politician and influential people use it for personal motives. Political opponents and the poor are tortured in police station.
Prevention of Violation:
For remedial measures, we will have to make efforts on multidimensional levels. We need determination to uproot the curse of violation of human rights. If we follow the fundamental principle of Islam, We can overcome the situation. ‘Khutba-e-Hajjat-ul-wida’ is the greatest charter of human rights.
Pakistan and Human Rights:
Pakistan is the signatory of human charter of UNO. So, in this way, it is our international and religious obligation to honor human rights. We will have to educate the people to make them aware of human rights.
The study of Holy Quran will also motivate the people to honor human rights. We will have to recognize police too. Committed person should be recruited on merit in police force. Judiciary should also do justice. All the criminals should be made accountable. Innocent and the poor should be helped. In this way, we can present the soft image of Pakistan and Islam before the world.
