We’re living in 2018 and still girls are caged in their houses, because izzat ko bachana hai. Izzat is not in clipping their wings, but making them learn values, difference amongst good and bad, making them realize the difference right and wrong – That’s how you can save your izzat.
When you go out you come across thousands of societies, good, bad and grey.
There are two types of traditionalist,
1) aik to woh jo larki ko parhne hi nahi dete because aakhir mein usay kitchen hi toh sambhalana hai and
2) the second type jo parhne toh dengay, bohat parhaengay aur phir ghar pe betha dengay, kyuki unke according job izzat dilati nahi cheen lete hai.
A lot of work has been going on to cure the type one malady, it is a long stroll. It can be cured only with time.
Now about type two malady, it’s basically the one in which you have all the assets; you let your daughter study, let her go to college/university and let her study whatever she wants to.
BUT when she asks you to let her experiment what she had studied at school, college and university.
You would clip her wings.
Because, there will be a permanent diminution in your Izzat if you let her go out and earn for herself.
There are some other people too who fall in the same category; those who look for a lady doctor for the women in their house but won’t let their girl study medicine, kyuki agar medical school mein daal dia and if mid-way they get a good proposal for her, then what? All the money will go in gutter. Simple bachelors in Pakistan doesn’t cost an arm and leg so letting it go would not be a hard task. Even at that time they wouldn’t care about the years that she’s put in, her efforts to score maximum in that course, they would simply ask her to drop out and forget about college.
There can be other ways of dealing such situation but they would simply ignore that.
Akhir kab tak kuch larkian isi tarha ghar pe band rahengi?
Kab tak wo apni khuaishaat ki awaaz ko dil mein daba dengi?
When will the change come? Kehne ko tabdeeli aagayi hai magar ham apni soch kab tabdeel karr rahay hai?
