Educating the Marriage Registrar and Regulating Madrassahs:

Women,  after the advent of Islam have been regarded the due reverence in the society.  It has embraced the social and economic rights of women and debarred the social injustices like Satti, lively burial as prevalent in the yesteryears. Despite wide ranging concerns over women rights, women rights are still mismanaged somehow knowingly or unknowingly.  Nikahnama,  for instance,  is fundamental to decide the future aspects of women’s life and the life of her children as well.  But insanity take its turn from marriage registrar. The marriage registrar, being a public servant, is responsible to inform the two families on the set of provisions like right to file devorce, alimony,  child marriage elopment etc. Research shows that the major problem lies in the improper filling of marriage certificates. Even registrar is not completely educated about the filling of document and left many loopholes therein. Recently,  around 24,000 marriage registrars have been trained as confirmed by Punjab Commission on Status of Women (PCSW) and many more are yet to be trained. Chairperson of PCSW Fauzia Viqar also pointed out there were no female marriage registrars and this also impacted the contract terms. Many women don’t know about their rights on how the document should be filled in.

Government ministry should work on terms of agreement and there is a need to regulate madrassah system once and for all. Religious education is an obligation being a Muslim and Pakistan as a Muslim state should come out of repudiate and must concede with rightful possession of madrassah and Mosques. The monitoring force that was put in system by former chief minister of Punjab Chaudhrry Pervaiz Ilahi must bring the religious sanctities under its radar of monthly evaluation system. The monitoring system monitors the health and education system currently and religious education should also be considered as a part not to be treated in seclusion.

  1. Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any suggestions for beginner blog writers? I’d really appreciate it.
