Persons disabilities day: Pakistan is a no land for special person

person

An International Day of persons with disabilities is being observed all across the world . December 3 was declared by the United Nations in 1992 as a day for persons with disabilities to promote awareness and mobilise support for critical issues relating to the inclusion of persons with disabilities in society and development. In 2006, the UN General Assembly adopted the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, an international human rights treaty. The theme of the day, this year is “Inclusion matters: access and empowerment for people of all abilities. Today one billion people around the world are living with disability. “We mark this year’s International Day of Persons with Disabilities in the wake of the adoption of the ambitious 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This global blueprint for action summons us to  leave no one behind ,” said United Nations secretary-general Ban Ki-moon. Talking about the Pakistan’s 1981 ordinance related to disabled persons, only 2% quota was allocated for persons with disabilities, however, the number of disabled persons has increased manifold since then. Persons with disabilities are already depending on their families and relatives but when it comes to steal their reserved rights, this is seriously alarming and unjust. There are roughly one billion people living with disability globally who suffer the stigma attached to their condition. Pakistan has about 10-15 percent of its people living with the affliction. Each year, the Day focuses on a different aspect, activating global concerted efforts to mobilise narratives, outline political and economic policies, review healthcare and work towards providing a platform for people with disabilities to counteract their disenfranchised status. This year the theme embraces “Inclusion matters: access and empowerment for people of all abilities.” The disabled need special care and attention rather than being assigned to a ‘handicapped’ category. Not only are they seen as an impediment by the public at large but their grievances are ignored by the state authorities, with little or no provision for special care. It is no wonder that many disabled persons resort to disturbed behaviour stemming from this alienation. Adding another layer to their hindrances, people with disabilities are provided no ramps in buildings, buses and other public places. Not only does this limit their mobility but gives them little or no opportunity to live a healthy and normal life through education, employment and social interaction. The truth is the needs of the disabled are not catered for from the simplest issue to the more complex ones. Lately the pendulum of research has swung towards puttin disabled persons in the mainstream in an environment that caters to their specific needs along with teaching them the necessary social skills to survive. This will help them break out of the stereotyped image that renders them socially isolated, stagnant and unproductive. Society needs to be educated to make space for them rather than constantly being reminded of their limitations. Politically correct language is an important factor in changing and educating mass perception that views them as ‘disabled’ rather than ‘differently enabled’. It is necessary to encourage a humane and caring society, one that treats people with disabilities like any other citizen, to the extent possible.
