Mistreatment of women is extensive in Pakistan, a nation of some 18 million where most people are underprivileged, barely half the adults can read amid extremist ideologies, counting the Taliban’s, are gaining grip. This brutal mistreatment with women has been a trademark of such entities in the past while seeing the picture of the torture in NawabTown police station; it becomes hard to believe that such deviltry is happening blatantly in Islamic Republic of Pakistan. In Pakistani society women are said to be heirs of respect and protection to as in accordance with the religion and social norms as well as given priority in the Constitution and Law of the state. Unfortunately, when the protectors of law become its violators, who can save the nation while the authorities close their eyes, not heeding the cries of the afflicted people whom they were commissioned to serve. The protection of poor and innocent Pakistani’s rises as a big question to the newly elected Nawaz Government, under such circumstances.
