The women of Pakistan are preparing for the “Aurat March” which will be organized on International Women’s Day. From the hunters of conservatism and bigotry to the women fighting for rights, the rulers who say the right place for the xadar and the woman’s border wall, get scared. The throne of those who call politics poor is also shocked. In this situation, the rulers of Pakistan are applying force to stop the “Golden March”.
Maulana Abdul Majeed Hazarvi, chairman of the Pakistani radical group Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F), has threatened not to hesitate to take strict measures to stop the ‘Aurat March’. In this situation, the question is, who is at risk of women’s empowerment? Why are other Muslim countries, including Pakistan, afraid of women living with their heads held high? Is the women’s rights movement normal and the women’s march non-Islamic? Read the Woman Bhaskar report, looking for answers to some of these questions …
After all, what is the Aurat March, which has snatched peace from Pakistan?
In Pakistan, every year, on March 8, women’s NGOs carry out ‘Aurat March’ across the country with the slogan ‘Mera Jism, Meri Marzi’. In this march, women raise their voices for their rights. The Women’s March will be held for the fifth time this year. It was first released on March 8, 2018. A section is in favor of this march. On the other hand, the other sector of society has opposed it.
Since 2018, women in Pakistan have been marching women on International Women’s Day. The women who took part in this march have also been receiving threats of violence and rape.
The practice of oppressing women is not just in Pakistan. There have also been occasional reports from other Muslim countries, showing that people are afraid to respect women and live with their heads held high. Either the Taliban decree to keep women confined to a wall in Afghanistan or the punishment of flogging in Saudi Arabia for having an immoral relationship.
“If the wife insists, hit her, the husband can hit her”
Malaysia’s Deputy Minister of Women and Family and Community Development, Siti Jailah Mohamed Yusuf, last month gave advice to men on how to control women. He said, “If the wife insists or behaves indecently, the husband should sleep apart from her for three days. Even if the wife does not understand to do so, the husband should be beaten so that the wife can “How strict her husband is. How vehemently he wants his wife to change her behavior.” Earlier, in 2016, Muhammad Khan Sherani, then chairman of the Council of Islamic Ideology, had said that husbands can beat their wives.
Erdogan said: he divorces and breaks the family treaty
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan issued a decree to withdraw from the Istanbul Convention in 2021. Let us tell you that the Istanbul Convention is a European treaty, which opposes violence against women and he raises his voice in favor of giving them their rights. The Erdogan government said the treaty breaks the family and encourages divorce. That is why we cannot live in this pact.
The women who took part in the ‘Golden March’ say that they will have to fight for a long time for their rights such as going out, wandering the streets freely and wearing the clothes of their choice.
Who opposed the ‘Golden March’?
Women around the world have to face many challenges, but Muslim women have to face many different types of challenges. Opposition to the ‘Golden March’ is also largely opposed for religious reasons. Religious and right-wing groups believe the march is against Islam. Not only that, liberal groups also claim that the women who raised the voice of the march are of provocative views.
According to the Dawn report, experts associated with women’s rights organizations say those who say women’s march is anti-Islamic and immoral are not the only illiterate people to be ignored. These people represent a radical ideology that needs special attention. These people have objections to women joining the mainstream and girls going to school.
In 2020, shoes and stones were launched in ‘Aurat March’
Muslim fundamentalists threw sticks and sticks at the women’s march organized in 2020 in Pakistan. The women were attacked with stones and shoes. Not only that, men also held a parallel rally in protest of the women’s march. We tell you that in recent years, the women who have participated have had to face a lot of criticism. Some women say they even received threats of rape and murder.
Pakistan’s fundamentalists have been against the women’s march from the beginning, but they could not stop the march. In 2020, men also took to the streets to protest the women’s march.
Fundamentalists who were afraid of women had appealed to the court
A petition was also filed with the Islamabad High Court and the Lahore High Court against the women’s march, in which it was asked to order not to remove the women’s march. However, the High Court had dismissed that request. The Lahore High Court had said that according to the law no one can be stopped. The government should give full security to the march of women.
