Approval Of The Establishment Of The VAWC Center For Women

The VAWC Center For Women

The Punjab Government has established the VAWC Center for Women. Violence against women and children is not a new phenomenon in society, women have been subjected to violence in many forms throughout the ages, including domestic violence, sexual harassment, acid throwing, honor killings, and forced marriages are included. During the period of Jahiliyyah, women were always looked down upon and daughters were killed as soon as they were born.

The religion of Islam has provided equal rights to women in society and has provided better rights for every form of woman be it mother, daughter, sister, or wife. The saddest thing is that even in today’s educated age, women are subjected to various forms of violence.

The Government of Pakistan has established the VAWC Center for the Protection of Women. Under this, women can easily register their complaints and raise their voices against oppression. The VAWC Center provides a safe environment for women to report crimes.

Causes Of Violence Against Women

Violence against women is a severe problem in Pakistan, for many reasons, such as long-standing family mistreatment, gender stereotyping, misinterpretation of religious teachings, limited access to education and information, financial dependence of women on men, weak law enforcement institutions, poor judicial systems, limited access to social services, and so on. Apart from this, women also have to face violence to maintain the honor of the family. 

Violence against women was seen as common in society and it became very difficult to solve and change it. To create a strong society for women in Pakistan, it was necessary to address changes in education policy and their root causes. This was the reason why VAWC centers for women were established in every district of Punjab.

سینٹر قائم VAWC

 پنجاب حکومت نے خواتین کے لیے سینٹر قائم کیا ہے۔ خواتین اور بچوں کے خلاف تشدد معاشرے میں کوئی نیا واقعہ نہیں ہے، خواتین کو ہر دور میں کئی شکلوں میں تشدد کا نشانہ بنایا جاتا رہا ہے، جن میں گھریلو تشدد، جنسی طور پر ہراساں کرنا، تیزاب پھینکنا، غیرت کے نام پر قتل اور جبری شادیاں وغیرہ شامل ہیں۔ ہمیشہ ان کو حقارت کی نگاہ سے دیکھا جاتا تھا اور بیٹیوں کو پیدا ہوتے ہی مار دیا جاتا تھا۔

دین اسلام نے معاشرے میں خواتین کو مساوی حقوق فراہم کیے ہیں اور عورت کی ہر شکل چاہے وہ ماں، بیٹی، بہن یا بیوی کے لیے بہتر حقوق فراہم کیے ہیں۔ سب سے افسوسناک بات یہ ہے کہ آج کے پڑھے لکھے دور میں بھی خواتین کو طرح طرح کے تشدد کا نشانہ بنایا جاتا ہے۔ حکومت پاکستان نے خواتین کے تحفظ کے لیے VAWC سینٹر قائم کیا ہے۔ اس کے تحت خواتین آسانی سے اپنی شکایات درج کروا سکتی ہیں اور ظلم کے خلاف آواز اٹھا سکتی ہیں۔ VAWC سینٹر خواتین کو جرائم کی اطلاع دینے کے لیے ایک محفوظ ماحول فراہم کرتا ہے۔
