DOMESTIC VIOLENCE LAWS AND PRACTICES IN PAKISTAN
The fundamental values of a country are reflected in its legal system that is encompassing the normative and social structure. The comprehensive legal structure in Pakistan treats domestic violence by taking into consideration two most important components, i.e. the constitutional law and the legal frame work designed in the light of implementation of Shariah principles. In this Article, the legal treatment of domestic violence in Pakistan is examined to conjecture about the attitudes of variant mind-set to gender issues under the law in Muslim societies. The response to domestic violence is articulated in the values infused in constitution or law making or while devising fundamental values promulgated in the implementation of shariah. The legislation must be based on the foundations of Shariah’s philosophy in Pakistan to demonstrate that implementing shariah Laws as per social change will promote awareness of women rights in the country.
