Imran Khan: Crimes against women are increasing rapidly in Pakistan. Prime Minister Imran Khan had held women responsible for such crimes a few months back. Due to such statements, his image among women has deteriorated a lot.

Noor Mukadam Murder in Pakistan: The last few hours of Noor Mukadam’s life were dreadful. Noor, 27, jumped out of the window to escape the pain, but was brought back home. He was beaten and then his head was cut and he was murdered. His childhood friend Zafir Jafar is accused of giving him such a painful death. According to reports, Noor had reportedly refused to marry Zaheer, following which she reportedly took the step.
The incident caused a sensation in Pakistan’s capital Islamabad last week, where human rights activists are already raising their voice against attacks against women (Noor Mukadam and Aahir Jaffer). Prominent human rights activist Tahira Abdullah said that Noor Muqadam was the daughter of a diplomat and the focus on the case because of her position in society has finally raised questions about the increasing violence against women in Pakistan.
Crime complaint is not even registered
Most of the women who have been victims of such violence are from the poor and middle classes of the country and their deaths often go unreported or ignored (Crime Against Women in Pakistan). Abdullah said that ‘I can give you a list longer than my hand’ of attacks on women in just one week. The epidemic of sexual crimes and violence against women in Pakistan is a silent epidemic that no one is watching and talking about.
Bill to protect against domestic violence was not passed
Despite all this, Pakistan’s parliament failed to pass a bill this month to protect women from domestic violence, he said. It also includes violence committed by the husband. Instead, it has asked an Islamic ideology council to look into it, the same council that had earlier said there was nothing wrong with a husband killing his wife. According to a Human Rights Watch report released earlier this year, data collected from domestic violence hotlines across the country showed a 200 percent increase in domestic violence between January and March last year. .
Violence figures increased rapidly in lockdown
These figures were much higher during the lockdown that started in March due to COVID-19 (Crime in Pakistan). Human rights activists said that in many cases of so-called honor killings in Pakistan, the perpetrators are brothers, fathers or other male relatives. Every year, more than 1,000 women are murdered in this way, many of them not even registering complaints.
Strong criticism of Imran Khan’s government
Rights groups sharply criticized Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan and his government, saying they work for religious rights and forgive perpetrators of attacks on women. He said the former cricketer, who has been married thrice and at a time when Khan’s image was that of a man having relationships with multiple women, has now embraced a conservative Islam, he said. He shares a close relationship with a religious man who blamed Covid-19 for ‘crimes against women’.
