An ongoing debate

The incident has opened up the debate once again on the efficacy of our present judicial system in protecting and giving justice to victims. Netizens noted that the judiciary has once again failed to provide justice since the innocent victim was killed while the culprits are still wandering freely.

The case also highlights the scourge of the victim-blaming mindset. As the regressive mindset prevails in several sections of society, the victim is being blamed for any sexual offense against them. Instead of blaming and shaming the actual culprits, the onus of the sexual assault is placed on the victim, particularly adult females.

The naysayers often accuse them of instigating men for committing sexual offenses against them. Society often proposes solutions to curb the cases of sexual assault in the form of regulating the conduct and behavior of genders, particularly women. The mixing of opposite genders is discouraged, women are told to dress ‘modestly’ and not to wear clothes provoking men. Females are instructed to go out in public spaces with a male guardian.

This debate had propagated the women’s rights movement in Pakistan with the slogan, of controversial ‘Mera Jism, Meri Marzi’( My body, My Choice). For several years, Aurat March is being organized, giving a platform for women to come out and protest for their rights and freedom. The intent was to gather the women’s power and collectively call the society to address and evaluate the rules and regulations set by women hampering their freedom and rights.
