Dismal state of human rights: Is Pakistan a worst country to live?

human

Referring to the famous phrase ‘man is born free but everywhere he is in chains,’ University of Karachi faculty of law dean Justice (retd) Dr Ghaus Muhammad said that Pakistan was born free but most Pakistanis are in chains. He said that the state should be secular and for this purpose Qarardad-e-Maqasid has to be eliminated. “State strengthens the feudalist,” Junejo said, adding that they are agents of the state. He claimed that even the military government of General (retd) Pervez Musharraf strengthened the feudal system. On international human rights day it was also learnt that Pakistan has faced its share of terrible human rights abuses. Endemic torture, the honour killing of women – which rose by some 14 percent last year according to human rights organisations and continues to increase with the Aurat Foundation reporting over 900 deaths this year – and atrocities against the working class, children and other vulnerable groups continued. There were also disturbing new trends as Karachi fell into greater turmoil. According to the HRCP, there were 402 deaths in encounters involving security forces in the city, an increase over the previous year, but a decline in targeted killings which fell to 184. None of these are comforting statistics. Minority groups continued to remain vulnerable to abuse. Pakistan, however, was not isolated in a world that seems to have developed deeply dangerous trends. The racism directed against Muslims in the West, most recently pouring forth from US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, has been horrifying. The same kind of racism has led to attacks on Muslims in European countries, and consequently bigger problems of integration which in turn lead to more violence. The interlinkages between these problems and the fact that nearly seven million Syrians have had to flee their homes because of war cannot be ignored. One kind of injustice breeds another and thus starts a cycle. People have faced similar risks in India, where the hard-line Hindu Shiv Sena has physically and verbally attacked Muslims with a viciousness perhaps not witnessed since Partition. Other countries too have seen terrible crimes committed against humanity. Efforts to suppress dissent have led to imprisonment and hangings in some states, including Saudi Arabia, while Pakistan has seen a surge in capital punishment after the lifting of the moratorium imposed in 2008. The world today then is one where cruelty and injustice seem to be winning against humanity. It is disturbing that in an age where humankind is supposed to have evolved so much, its human rights record seems to be going the opposite way.
