As part of observing World Day for the Prevention of Child Abuse on November 19, National Women’s Front will organize different programs with the slogan “Their Dignity, Our Duty” at various parts of the country for creating awareness of the problems severe children face in our society.
Human rights violations are still rampant in India even after being independent for more than seven decades. The constitution of India guarantees social, religious and cultural freedom. It also recognises the education, privacy as our fundamental right. We also have right against exploitation and the freedom of expression. It also assures that each and every citizen is equal in front of the law. These constitutional guarantees are being broken; we should work towards upholding them.
National Women’s Front president A.S. Zainaba has stated that the Supreme Court judgement on Triple-Talaq will have little impact on the lives of Muslim women since it is an issue concerning very little number of women in the community. While we welcome the ban on a regressive practice that has been renounced by majority, the community already had its own internal measure to tackle it.
The issue that concerns the community with regards to the judgment is that it might set a precedent for the state to interfere with personal law and allow politically motivated groups in power to infringe the fundamental right to practice one religion in the name of reformation of personal law. The media hype over the judgment and Prime Minister’s statement that the judgment brings equality to Muslim women is devoid any substance.
National Women’s Front general secretary Lubna Menhaz Shaik demands the Uttar Pradesh government to nab the culprits and take strict action against them and also urges the government to make the law even more stringent when it comes to such heinous crimes.
In the most unfortunate of incidents that took place on May 2017 on the Jewar bulandshahr road off the Yamuna expressway, where eight persons of a family were travelling to Bulanshahr to meet a relative at a hospital where they were intervened by few goons and were robbed by their jewellery and money worth 50,000 and the women were gang raped at gun point and one of the family member was also shot because he objected the sexual assault .
In spite of statement given in by the victims of the gang rape and other family members there has not been any action taken by the police to nab the culprits, what has been given is just dates to keep postponing the proceedings.
