Once upon a time when female children were buried alive in Arabia and women were considered transferable property, Islam honored women in society by elevating them and protecting them with unprecedented rights.
The aim to address this subject in the context of Islam is to tell stereotypes and pessimists that no religion or Theology other than Islam depicts the unrivalled rights of women and provides them privilege and protection.
The highly secular and developed countries of the world are unable to guard and secure the rights of women. Even today, in some countries, woman is being considered as sex slave and her selling and purchasing is done in a well defined manner. Let me acquaint you with the so called advanced and modern country viz, U S A claiming to uplift and upgrade the women is actually degrading dishonoring and demeaning her.
This can be understood by the following statistical report of rape by RAAIN, As ‘’an average, there are 321,500 victims (age 12 or older) of rape and sexual assault each year in the United States.
94% of women who are raped experience post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms during the two weeks following the rape. 33% of women who are raped contemplate suicide. 13% of women who are raped attempt suicide. While in India the average goes downstairs.
As NCRB states that 327,394 cases of crimes against women were reported in 2015, it can be said that average rapes happing in India per day is more than 95. Furthermore there are enormous numbers of offenses against women which do not go viral because of many obstacles.
In such a stitch a deferential person has to think of Safety measures before sending out his daughter or sister it’s been seen daily in many newspapers that women were gang raped, minor was victimized, woman was on the way to college were kidnapped.
Intellectuality and harder efforts of man seems to fail in solving this outstanding issue.
As the number of ravish cases displayed during last few years showed that the Kashmiri Muslim women going to other parts of the country or outside the country are being provided the domain to take part in vulgar activities: Drugs, wine, Bar dance , affairs even sexual actives are increasing in number, Which may be common out there.
There are several cases which spoke of some women who went through abortion as a result of sexual intercourse which usually begins with friendship, finding themselves aloof from home feels freedom does whatever they want ,coming to their clothing they do not resemble with kashmiriyat[Kashmiri culture ] even sometimes they seem to exceed the western dress code.
Who is liable for this immodesty and immorality? Qur’an answers “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks close round them (when they go abroad). That will be better, so that they may be recognized and not annoyed. Allah is forgiving; Merciful’’ (33:59).By virtue of above verse we came to know that Parents and heads of families are accountable for the decision making .
Therefore they should meet the needs accordingly.
However women in Kashmir are not risk-free; domestic violence, mental and physical torture in rural and urban areas are increasing, women in buses, offices and other business establishments are resorted to intimidation and harassment.
Kashmir is exceeding the Jammu in crimes against women it’s the matter of trepidation which needs to be analyzed and resolved otherwise the day is no far when situation will run out of grip.
Despite the subjugation of women, Valley is witnessing fornication in a huge amount although its introduction is non representational but its occurrence is being felt by every observer.
I know to address such an issue is not based on physical report, but the following hadith is clear evidence which is the logic to understand its rate “Prophet Mohammad (saw) said “when two people (illegally) are together alone than the third is satan (devil)” .(bukhari). By this hadith we understood that the contact between the opposite sex unlawfully becomes the base for fornication and following law approves it.
“Section 294 of Indian Penal Code says obscenity in public is a criminal offence, but nothing specifically talks about kissing or hugging in public.’’ And note that Pre-marital sex is not illegal in India as long as the girl’s age is more than 18.
Madras High court judgment says Couples who have premarital sex to be considered married. I believe our conscience do not allow us to consider it legitimate, therefore over-parenting and moral education is the urgent need of hour to elicit enmeshed youth to relinquish adultery and fornication or else the day is no far when westernization will lead parents to lose their children. In the conclusion it can be said that the two different layouts of same theme enables us to account and examine our moral values, it also delineates the image of scorn for kashmiriyat.
The representation of above two images of same object is based on, observation, experience and knowledge.
