HR activists, lawyers urged to curb gender-based violence

HARIPUR: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Bar Council Chairman Malik Khaliqdad Advocate said that there is need of a close relationship between lawyers and human rights activists for countering gender-based violence in the country, reported a local English newspaper.

He said this while addressing ‘establishing and strengthening lawyers’ network for combating gender-based violence in Haripur’, which was arranged by Dastagir Legal Aid Centre, a project of Human Development Organisation (HDO).

He further said that discrimination against women is the root cause of violence against the women, which is not a good sign for a society which claims to be semi-liberal and semi-Islamic.
