Abuse crisis

Pakistan is facing a dire crisis with over 26 million out-of-school children, many of whom are trapped in child labour and vulnerable to exploitation. The trend of abuse against women is also alarming, with pseudo-intellectuals and individuals with questionable credentials perpetuating verbal abuse against them in the media with impunity.

This situation is unacceptable and demands urgent action. The state must work to discourage harmful mindsets and discourses in society and media. Moreover, sane voices must be amplified to address these challenges.
