Two important laws for women in Punjab on cards: Raja Basharat

Punjab Minister for Law and Cooperatives Raja Basharat has said that our religion and our constitution better protect all the rights of women and emphasize on giving them respect and dignified place in the society.

In a special message on the occasion of International Women’s Day marked on Monday, he said that the provincial government was taking concrete steps for the welfare and protection of women.

Raja Basharat further said, “The Punjab Women Protection Authority has been activated to help women victims of violence, while after Multan, women protection centers are being set up in Rawalpindi and Lahore.”

He said that the government had recently introduced two important bills regarding women, namely the Women’s Hostels Authority bill and women’s enforcement share in property bill 2021, which would become law after approval.

“Further legislation will be enacted on the directive of Chief Minister Usman Bazdar to empower the women in society,” the provincial minister added.

Raja Basharat also said that industrial homes were active in all the districts of Punjab to make women skilled while Darulaman and Kashana centers were working across the province for helpless women and orphan girls. He said that women were being given effective representation in every sector of life in Punjab.
