Can we influence Pakistan?

Recommended Posts

You could only say that if you've got comparative stats for domestic violence.

 

Have you got comparative stats for domestic violence?

 

This troll statement will just drag this thread off topic and into some kinda comparison which will in the end all views will be blamed on, yep, racism, again.

 

 

What can you do to solve THIS particular issue?

Already posted upthread.

 

How common is domestic violence?

 

Domestic violence is very common. Research shows that it can affect one in four women in their lifetimes, regardless of age, social class, race, disability or lifestyle. Domestic violence accounts for between 16% and one quarter of all recorded violent crime. In any one year, there are 13 million separate incidents of physical violence or threats of violence against women from partners or former partners.

 

 

(Home Office, 2004; Dodd et al., 2004; Dobash and Dobash, 1980; Walby and Allen, 2004)

Local prevalence of domestic Violence.

 

 

Domestic violence is now more of an emerging topic for researchers as it widely prevails in Pakistan, not only in rural areas but also in more developed cities like Karachi. A study in Karachi showed that 34% of the interviewed women when asked about domestic violence reported physical abuse

Nothing to be proud of there.

And what are the common themes of causation which can be extrapolated from those studies?

NB:

(Prepares hat as about to do a Ken)

Even though this can be put into the group of Domestic Violence, then include all extreme cases of Domestic Violence, if you don't mind, to avoid thread creep.

Nope. The OP whines on about what pakistanis in this country can do to stop domestic violence in Pakistan. I'm asking why should they when nobody seems bothered about stopping domestic violence in this country?

 

The answer?

 

Because they have no real interest in domestic violence, just slagging off foreigners.

 

Simples!

 

Agreeeeeed.

I was locked up (several years ago) and a local Pakistani kid who went to my school was in the same prison, anyhow he had been smitten by a white blond lass and she didn't want anything to do with him. He was fuming that this girl could have the gall to shun him and wanted to pay me, because I was getting out before him, £300 to pour a tin of evo stick glue over her head so that she would have to have all of her hair cut off, thus taking away from her her attractiveness to others.

 

Needless to say I did not do it, but this guy was so fixated on making this girl pay for spurning him that I would not have put it past him getting someone else to do it or something else just as bad.

 

Now this is not exactly acid in the face but it shows the mind set of some Asian men towards women and how they go to deprive the woman of her looks if they have grievance with them.

They're not honour attacks. How many times, they're DOMESTIC DISPUTES, DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. As much as you'd like to pretend there's something unique about it it's sadly routine across cultures. Much better to shine a light than moan about the darkness, what are YOU doing about a topic that seems to exercise you so much?

 

Sigh, you're still in denial about the phenomenon of the Asian honour code that is often enforced robustly, I see :roll:

Read in the metro with interest this morning that Pakistan is ejecting the Save the Children charity accusing them of spying for the US in light of the bin Laden saga. Does confirm that Pakistan was harbouring bin Laden?

No it doesn't. Pakistan claims that Save The Children introduced a doctor to the CIA to run a bogus hepatitis B campaign through which it tried to get people's DNA to compare with Bin Laden's DNA in an effort to find him. That doesn't prove Pakistan was harbouring Bin laden, just that Pakistan thinks the USA were using a charity to find him.
