Women, Violence and Conflict in Pakistan


Eight years into its democratic transition, violence against women is still endemic in Pakistan, amid a climate of impunity and state inaction. Discriminatory legislation and a dysfunctional criminal justice system have put women at grave risk. Targeted by violent extremists with an overt agenda of gender repression, women’s security is especially threatened in the conflict zones in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) province and the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA). On 8 March, International Women’s Day, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif vowed that his government would take all necessary legislative and administrative steps to protect and empower women. If this pledge was in earnest, his Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) government should end institutionalised violence and discrimination against women, including by repealing unjust laws, countering extremist threats, particularly in KPK and FATA, and involving women and their specially relevant perspectives in design of state policies directly affecting their security, including strategies to deal with violent extremist groups. 

Women in the past were the principal victims of state policies to appease violent extremists. After democracy’s return, there has been some progress, particularly through progressive legislation, much of it authored by committed women’s rights activists in the federal and provincial legislatures, facilitated by their increased numbers in parliament. Yet, the best of laws will provide little protection so long as social attitudes toward women remain biased, police officers are not held accountable for failing to investigate gender-based crimes, the superior judiciary does not hold the subordinate judiciary accountable for failing to give justice to women survivors of violence, and discriminatory laws remain on the books. 

Laws, many remnants of General Zia-ul-Haq’s Islamisation in the 1970s and 1980s, continue to deny women their constitutional right to gender equality and fuel religious intolerance and violence against them. Their access to justice and security will remain elusive so long as legal and administrative barriers to political and economic empowerment remain, particularly the Hudood Ordinances (1979), FATA’s Frontier Crimes Regulations (FCR) (1901) and the Nizam-e-Adl (2009) in KPK’s Provincially Administered Tribal Areas (PATA). 

The government has a constitutional obligation and international commitments, including under the UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), to combat gender inequality and remove such barriers to women’s empowerment. Repealing discriminatory legislation and enforcing laws that protect women, including by ensuring that they have access to a gender-responsive police and courts, are essential to ending the impunity that promotes violence against women. 

The extent to which rights violations go unpunished is particularly alarming in FATA and KPK, where women are subjected to state-sanctioned discrimination, militant violence, religious extremism and sexual violence. Militants target women’s rights activists, political leaders and development workers without consequences. The prevalence of informal justice mechanisms in many parts of Pakistan, particularly in Pakhtunkhwa and FATA, are also highly discriminatory toward women; and the government’s indiscriminate military operations, which have displaced millions, have further aggravated the challenges they face in the conflict zones.

In KPK and FATA, and indeed countrywide, women’s enhanced meaningful presence in decision-making, including political participation as voters and in public office, will be central to sustainable reform. Pakistan should invest in their empowerment and reflect their priorities in all government policies, including counter-insurgency and peacebuilding efforts. All too often, women comprise a majority of both the intended victims of the insurgency and the unintended victims of the counter-insurgency response. 

National and provincial legislation to enhance protections for women is a step in the right direction, but much more is needed to safeguard them against violence and injustice and ultimately to consolidate Pakistan’s democratic transition. 


To curb violence against women and promote gender equity 
To the executives and legislatures of Pakistan’s federal and provincial governments:

01.  Respecting international commitments and constitutionally guaranteed fundamental rights, the National Assembly should amend all laws that discriminate against women in the Penal Code and Evidence Act and repeal the Hudood Ordinances in their entirety; all provincial legislatures should pass and implement laws to protect and empower women, including by criminalising and taking effective measures to prevent domestic violence.

02.  The National Assembly should approve the Anti-Rape Laws (Criminal Laws Amendment) Act, the Anti-Honour Killings Laws (Criminal Laws Amendment) Act and the Torture, Custodial Death and Custodial Rape (Prevention and Punishment) Act, passed by the Senate in March 2015.

03.  The national legislature should establish a quota of general (directly-elected) National Assembly seats, in addition to the existing reserved (unelected) seats, for women legislators, and the parliament’s rules of procedures should be amended to ensure a certain number of parliamentary committees are headed by women.

04.  The federal and provincial governments should prioritise the development of a gender-responsive security apparatus, including by increasing the numbers of policewomen, particularly in senior positions; building police capacity to investigate crimes against women; and strengthening the National Police Bureau (NPB) and its gender crimes cell’s liaison with provincial authorities.

05.  The provincial governments should build the capacity of the Provincial Commissions on the Status of Women (PCSW) to monitor violations of women’s rights and to ensure that government policies and legislation produce gender equality and women’s empowerment.

To the international community, particularly the UN and donor countries:

06.  Continue and enhance support for developing gender-responsive policing and women’s rights bodies; also ensure that women’s needs, rights and priorities are meaningfully addressed in all aid programing.

To protect and empower women in conflict-affected areas

To the federal government and the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) provincial government: 

07.  Repeal the Frontier Crimes Regulations (FCR) in FATA and the Nizam-e-Adl in PATA and extend the jurisdiction of superior courts to FATA so that citizens there can seek protection of the fundamental rights the constitution guarantees them.

08.  Include women and protect their rights and interests in counter-insurgency and peacebuilding strategies.

09.  Promote civilian-led and civilian-devised humanitarian assistance and take measures to ensure that displaced women receive timely and adequate assistance, including by facilitating national and international NGOs’ access to areas of displacement and investigating allegations of discriminatory assistance.

10.  The federal and KPK governments should ensure that women can exercise their rights of franchise and to stand for public office; and the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) should investigate all cases of women having been barred from voting or contesting elections.

To the international community, particularly the UN and donor countries:

11.  Ensure that women’s needs are adequately assessed in relief and rehabilitation assistance to conflict-affected and internally displaced persons. 

12.  Encourage the federal government to repeal the FCR and Nizam-e-Adl and to support women’s rights in the conflict zones and participation in the development of counter-insurgency/counter-terrorism policies and peacebuilding efforts. Islamabad/Brussels, 8 April 2015 (ICG)

My Awakening


It has taken me a while to decide how to begin writing this story, but I will start by introducing myself. My name is Diana; I am an ordinary person of flesh and blood. I grew up Catholic, in fact my whole family is. I currently attend to a university and work in a police department. I could tell you detail by detail about my life and my experience, but I would take many pages for that.

Several years ago I felt lost; I felt blind not knowing where I was going in life. During all those years I have devoted my time to find myself. It was as if asleep. Over two years ago I was introduced to Islam, a religion that seemed so peaceful for me and I began to feel very interested about Islam. I am a highly conservative person; therefore I decided to do more research on Islam on my own. I read and learned a lot about Islam. I attended a few times at the mosque near me and observed the women wearing their hijabs and the beauty and meaning that comes from it. I realized I had found what I wanted, what I needed, but I was terrified about my family’s reaction. I had many dreams in relation to Islam and my family too. They were peaceful dreams where I wore a hijab and my family understood and supported me over the decision I made.

Finally, after all this time I decided to take the next step. I went to the same mosque with a friend who talked to the sheikh about my decision.

I feel blessed that Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) has allowed my lips to say “I bear witness that there is no god but Allah, and I bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.”
After three months and nine days from when I converted into Islam (12/15/13), I can still feel so much emotion in my heart and tears rolling down my face every time I remember that moment. I started wearing the hijab the same day I converted into Islam because I embrace the beauty and the true meaning of wearing a hijab. I have also noticed that people treat me different, but in a better way. I feel blessed wearing my hijab and for the first time since that day, I feel so calm, in peace, and awake. Alhamdulillah for all the blessings I’ve received and Inshallah my family will understand and support me in the kind of life I’ve made peace with. Beauty is modesty and I feel happy to say that I feel secure, respected and proud to wear my hijab. Hijab is my Beauty, I am hijabbed and I am proud of it. By Diana Villanueva (USA) (World hijab day)

Malala’s Story for Colonial Political Interests Exploited by Western Governments


 The shooting of the fifteen year old Pakistani girl last October, Malala Yusufzai shocked and horrified many across the world – Muslim and non-Muslim. The dominant narrative that has been promoted by the mainstream media, human rights organisations, and Western governments and politicians is that the attempted assassination of this young girl by ‘Islamists’ in Pakistan was due to their opposition of her women’s rights activism and advocacy of education for girls in the country. 

 Following the shooting, many institutions and personalities rallied to her cause, praising her for bringing women’s education to global attention, including former British Prime Minister and UN Special Envoy for Global Education, Gordon Brown, UN General Secretary Ban Ki-Moon, and former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. On the 12th of July, Malala was invited to address a gathering of youth at the UN headquarters in New York where she advocated the need for free compulsory education for every child.

The cause of improving the educational rights of girls in Pakistan and globally is a noble one. However, far from noble are the shameless attempts by Western governments, institutions and politicians to exploit this young girl, her struggle, and the horrific attack against her for their own political goal of intensifying the propagation of Western secular, liberal values to women and girls in the Muslim world through education, and to weaken their Islamic identity and values. 

The cynical nature of their support of Malala and lack of true concern for the educational rights of Muslim women is demonstrated by their hypocritical stance and silence towards hijab and niqab bans in secular states such as France, Belgium, Turkey, and Uzbekistan that have deprived Muslim girls and women of a good schooling simply for abiding by their Islamic dress. The question should surely be asked – where were the strong voices of opposition of such secular states and politicians to the European Court of Human Rights’ Judgements that ruled against the right of Muslim women in France and Turkey to seek a good education while also adhering to their Islamic beliefs?

Malala’s story has also been used to further fuel and re-enforce the age-old myth that Islam and Islamic rule oppresses women and deprives them of their rights and that they are in need of Western-style liberation. It is a narrative that has been employed historically and over decades, continuing into modern times to maintain Western secular hegemony over the region by fighting the resurgence of Islam internationally in order to prevent the establishment of an Islamic system in the Muslim world that would threaten Western political and economic interests. 

However, it is not Islam but Western colonial foreign policy that has stripped women and girls in Pakistan and many other Muslim countries of a valuable education. The ‘War on Terror’ and occupation of Afghanistan has created a constant climate of insecurity and instability in Pakistan, Afghanistan and the region, marked with frequent drone attacks and bombs that have killed thousands over the years, including countless women, girls, and children. 

A UN Committee on the Rights of Children report stated that hundreds of children are reported to have died, “as a result of attacks and air strikes by the US military forces in Afghanistan” between 2008 and 2012, due to the use of “indiscriminate force”. Where are the rights of these children? Clearly their deaths are acceptable collateral damage to such colonial governments for the sake of securing their interests in the region. Such occupation, war and instability has also generated a lawless environment riddled with crime, abductions, and rape. All this has lead to many parents preventing their daughters from travelling far from their homes, including to school. 

Furthermore, how can states plagued with instability, destruction, and insecurity ever provide a good quality of education to their citizens? After more than 10 years of occupation, almost 9 out of 10 women in Afghanistan remain illiterate. Hence, it is the destructive Western colonial foreign policy that has not only robbed girls of an education, but robbed them of their lives and dignity, and stands as one of the main obstacles to their effective schooling.

Coupled with this, secular Western-backed regimes in the Muslim lands have allowed the influx of liberal culture into their states through their entertainment and advertising industries as well as through implementing a secular education system. This culture that sanctifies sexual freedom; sexualizes, objectifies and degrades women; and encourages men to treat women according to their desires has contributed to the high levels of sexual harassment, bullying and rape in the schools and streets of countries such as Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Egypt. This has caused many girls and women to feel reluctant to venture outside of their homes to seek an education. 

In addition, the flawed Western capitalist system has destroyed the economy of countries in the Muslim world, burdening them with huge debts due to heavy interest based loans and failed economic policies, such that more is spent on debt-repayments than education, healthcare, infrastructure and other public services. The result is insufficient and crumbling schools, poor numbers and training of teachers, and lack of necessary books and equipment. Furthermore, the impoverishment of the people through capitalist policies imposed upon the Muslim lands by Western states and their institutions such as the IMF as well as the lack of free schooling has caused many parents to reluctantly prioritise education for their sons over their daughters. Not surprising therefore that more than 60% of women in Pakistan and around 50% of women in Bangladesh and Egypt are illiterate.

It is therefore Western foreign policy and the capitalist, secular system that has been imposed upon our Muslim lands which has proven to be the greatest obstacle to providing good quality education to women and girls in the Muslim world.

Islam is clear about female education. It not only views the seeking of knowledge regarding Islam and its solutions to life’s affairs as an obligation upon women, as according to the hadith of the Prophet(saw), “Seeking Knowledge is obligatory upon ALL Muslims” but also directs the Muslimah to study the world around her. Indeed, the wife of the Prophet(saw), Aisha(ra) was not only a great scholar of Islam but a great scholar of medicine, poetry, and general knowledge. Islam also obliges the Muslim Ummah to be a leading nation in the world, encouraging men and women to contribute to the betterment of society and to excel in various spheres of life, including in academia, science, medicine, technology, and industry.

However, all these educational obligations and rights of women can only be secured by a system that truly values the beliefs of Islam and its emphasis on the importance of female learning. That system is the Khilafah state whose constitution is based purely upon the Qur’an and Sunnah. Hence, in accordance to Islam, the Khilafah is obliged to invest heavily in education and provide free primary and secondary education to girls and boys alike and as far as possible fund higher studies. It assures specialized female schools abiding by the Islamic regulation of segregation of the genders, managed by well-trained, well-paid and qualified female teachers. And it encourages and facilitates women to specialize in various fields to become for example scholars of Islam, doctors, scientists, mathematicians, architects, judges, lecturers, engineers, or IT specialists. 

All this is funded by a sound Islamic economic system that embodies the tools to generate a stable economy and economic prosperity, implemented by the Islamic ruling system that prioritises education and views it as a basic right of every citizen. It will strive through its education, media, and judicial systems to eradicate any cultural attitudes in its society that prevent women from having access to education. Finally, the Islamic social system and other Shariah laws will ensure that the high status of women is always maintained, that they are never devalued, that men treat them with respect and not according to their desires, and that harsh punishments are issued for any violation of their dignity, ensuring a safe environment within which girls can travel to school and pursue their studies. It is all this that will lead to the eradication of female illiteracy and to women’s educational aspirations being fulfilled.

It was under this system of the Khilafah that women’s education flourished historically creating brilliant female inventors such as Marium al-Istirlabi who pioneered the development of the astrolabe in the 10th century for calculating the position of the sun and stars; excellent female engineers such as Fatima Al-Fiqri who constructed the first university in the world in Qarawayyin, Morrocco; and thousands upon thousands of female scholars as detailed in the 40 volume book by the scholar Mohamed Akram an-Nadwi which provided biographies of 8000 female scholars who existed during the time of the Islamic civilization. Under this true Islamic system, the prestigious Al-Azhar university in Cairo gave access to women as students and as lecturers – a right that women in the West only acquired within their universities centuries after. Indeed, the proportion of female lecturers in many classical Islamic colleges was higher than in many Western universities today. All this was a result of Muslims making Islam the central and only motivating factor for their development. The Khilafah was therefore a state that truly pioneered the world in female education and Insha Allah will again produce a first-class education system for women and girls again upon its establishment!

Dear brothers and sisters, the script of the Malala story is being written by Western colonial governments, not to improve the rights of women but to continue their colonial intervention and control of the Muslim world. The education they offer for the region is not sincere but aimed at further spreading their secular, liberal values that has corrupted our youth; and it must be strongly rejected. It is through returning to our Islamic roots and laws through establishing the Khilafah that alone holds the key to fulfilling the educational aspirations of women and ensuring that all their God-given rights are secured. Allah(swt) says, “They wish to blow out the Light of Allah (i.e.this deen of Islam, the Qur’an, and the Prophet(saw) with their mouths). But Allah will bring His Light to perfection even though the disbelievers hate it.” [TMQ As-Saff: 8] (Ends)

Street Dawwa in UK Rochdale

During this blessed month of Ramadan, sisters at the Dawah stall in Rochdale took the opportunity to discuss with the community the significance that the month holds for Muslim community. Alongside maximising our efforts in the obligations commanded by Allah the believer increases their sunnah actions in the hope of attaining the immense rewards unrivalled by no other time or period throughout the year which Allah SWT has prepared for us.

Sisters spoke of the many challenges facing the Muslims this Ramadhan, nationally and globally, from the recent Woolwich incident, the rise in Islamophobia to the crisis in Syria, the dire situation of Muslims in Burma, Palestine, etc. As Muslims continue to be tested and where holding on to our values such as obedience is to Allah, the concept of brotherhood, the desire to live by the Quran and Sunnah, or the establishment of the khilafah, is like holding onto hot ember, sisters were reminded that although a difficult time for Muslims, the believer is encouraged to strive hard to establish the Deen of Allah in return for the immense rewards and that we ask Allah to strengthen us to carry His Call (swt). Muhammad (saw) said
“There will come a time called patience days. To hold onto Islam at that time will be like holding onto an ember of coal. Those people who work for the deen at those times will receive the reward of 50 men”

Sisters spoke of the how we should embrace the virtues of this month to strengthen our iman to motivate us throughout the rest of the year. By preserving our identities in the face of the attacks against Islam, remaining steadfast in our adherence of the commands of Allah and working to resume Islam as a way of life by inshallah establishing the Khilafah state in the Muslim land.

Egyptian Girl, 13, Dies After Illegal Female Genital Mutilation (FGM)

1/ Female Genital Cutting (FGC) is Un-Islamic


A teenage girl has died after undergoing an illegal female genital mutilation (FGM) procedure in a private clinic north east of Cairo

The 13-year-old, identified as Soher Ebrahim, died on Thursday evening in a village in the Daqahliya governorate, Gulf News reports. 

It adds her family have filed an official complaint, accusing the doctor who performed the operation of causing her death.

Soher’s father Mohammad told the Egyptian daily newspaper Al Masry Al Youm his daughter had been one of four girls being circumcised at the clinic at the time. 

He said the family had been informed Soher died of an anaesthesia overdose, though this has not been confirmed. 

He added: “If I had known the operation was going to kill her, I would never have [allowed] her to have it. The same doctor conducted a similar operation on her elder sister two years ago and villagers use this doctor because he has a remedy for everything at low prices." 

Soher’s uncle told the newspaper the doctor in question had offered her family 20,000 Egyptian pounds (around GBP1,850) if they did not file a complaint against him. 

Al Arabiya reports the police have ordered an autopsy and have “summoned” the doctor to determine the cause of the girl’s death. 

It cites a health inspector report as attributing the cause of death to “a sharp drop in blood pressure resulting from shock trauma.”
The procedure of FGM was criminalised by the Egyptian parliament in June 2008, with those found guilty liable for fines and prison sentences of up to two years. 

According to Egypt Independent, recent evidence suggests that younger generations are challenging the practice.

It quotes a 2008 Demographic and Health Survey of Egypt, which recorded that 91.1 percent of women aged 15-49 years underwent FGM, but only around 74 percent of girls aged 15-17 years, a percentage that is expected to drop to 45 percent over the next 10 years.

Compared to results from the 1995 survey, which recorded 96 percent of women aged 15-30 years having experienced FGM, "this is positive - if patient - progress". 

The World Health Organisation defines FGM as including procedures that intentionally alter or cause injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons.

The procedure has no health benefits and can cause severe bleeding and difficulty urinating. Subsequent cysts, infections, infertility and complications in childbirth can lead to an increased risk of newborn deaths.
About 140 million girls and women worldwide are currently living with the consequences of FGM.

Pre News Report of Muktamar Khilafah 2013


Published on Jun 1, 2013
On the 28th Rajab 1342 Hijriah or 3 March 1924, the Khilafah was replaced by the democratic secular capitalist system after its glory for 13 centuries. The plight and great suffering of the Muslim Ummah including Muslim women had started.

None of the sweet promises from the democratic secular capitalist system proved to dignify women's honor. Instead, Muslim women and children have become the victims of the implementation of its values and laws, suffering from poverty, exploitation, violence, family breakdown and misguidance of the youth. Many of the Islamic political, economic, educational, and legal rights that had been afforded to them for centuries under the Islamic rule of the Khilafah were cruelly stripped from them under secular and other man-made systems of governance.

Today, the desire of Muslim women in the far eastern for real change and improvement to their lives and society through the establishment of Islamic rule under the Khilafah is mirrored by the overwhelming desire for Islamic governance amongst the Muslim Ummah across the world. A new Pew Research Center survey of Muslims around the globe in 2012 finds that they are deeply committed to their faith and want its teachings to shape not only their personal lives but also their societies and politics.

Regarding the desire for the reestablishment of sharia and the Khilafah, HT Indonesia is holding the largest event ever in support of this goal; Muktamar Khilafah 2013 entitled: "A Magnitude Change of the World towards the Khilafah".

Do not miss this momentous event, join us on the 2nd of June 2013 at Gelora Bung Karno, Jakarta-Indonesia at 8 am -- 12.30 pm (Indonesia time) or watch the event live from 6.15 am -- 13.00 pm (Indonesia time) at HT.

I wish to marry a Pious husband

Story of beautiful woman who wish to marry pious husband 
There was this beautiful woman, who wanted to get married, but she wanted a very pious husband, so she said that she’ll marry the man who recites the whole Quran every single day, fasts for the whole year and stays awake and worships Allah all throughout the night.

She was a very beautiful woman, and a lot of suitors wanted to marry her, but they knew they couldn’t fulfil the conditions she set. Until this one man stepped forward and said he could fulfil them. So the Imam got both of them married.

After the first night of the marriage, the wife sees that the husband doesn’t recite the whole of the Quran, nor does he fast, nor does he stay awake in the worship of Allah, she decided to let it roll on for a few weeks to see if there were any changes, there weren’t, so she filed a complaint and asked for a divorce.

They are both taken in front of the judge, and the judge asked, ‘What were the conditions of the marriage?’ the man replied ‘They were for me to recite the whole Quran daily, keep fast for the whole year and to worship Allah all throughout the night.’

The Judge asked, ‘ did you fulfil them? The man calmly answered, ‘…yes.’

The judge answers, ‘you lie, your wife has said that you don’t, that’s why she’s asking for a divorce’.
But the man insisted that he had fulfilled the conditions, so the judge asked, ‘did you recite the full Quran everyday?’ The man answered yes. The Judge, baffled asked, ‘how? How can you do that?’ The man coolly answered, ‘I recite Surah Ikhlas three times a day and according to Prophet Muhammad (saw), reciting Surah Ikhlas three times is equivalent to reciting the whole Quran.’ The Judge was intrigued, so he asked, ‘how did you fast the whole year?’ The man answered, ‘ I fasted for the whole month of Ramadan, then kept another six fasts in the month of Shawwal, according to Prophet Muhammad (saw), keeping all of the fast of Ramadan then keeping six fasts in the month of Shawwal, is as if you have fasted for the whole year.’

The Judge remained silent, he couldn’t give a reply saying the man was wrong, so finally he asked, ‘ how did you stay awake all night and worship Allah, when your wife saw you sleeping?’ The Judge thought the man wouldn’t be able to answer this one, but the man, cool as a cucumber answered, ‘I prayed Salatul Isha with jamaat, then the next day prayed Salatul Fajr with jamaat, according to Prophet Muhammad (saw), the one who prays Salatul Isha and Salatul Fajr with jamaat, it is as if he had stayed up all night worshipping Allah.’

The Judge sat there looking at the man; the final verdict was about to be released…

He said to the man and his wife, ‘…go, just go, there is nothing wrong with this marriage’…(Via FB; Sisters)
