Islamabad: A recent report by the Peace Council of Pakistan has revealed that about 70-90 percent Pakistani women suffer from domestic violence, and 50 percent of rape victims who did not report to the police were jailed under the Hudood Ordinance.
The Hudood law criminalised extra-marital sexual relations, including rape.
The report said that the federal government had completely failed in its attempt to tackle the deaths of hundreds of women in so-called honour killings.
A woman was raped every two hours and up to three women a day died from stove deaths in Pakistan, the report said.
The women were generally doused in fuel and set afire after undergoing abuse for reasons such as failure to give birth to a son, disobedience and allegations of adultery, it said, adding that in most cases families and police often labelled these murders as accidents.
Police are often reluctant to investigate these cases and husbands can often bribe the police to label them as suicide attempts, the report said, adding that only 5 percent of abusive husbands and family members are ever convicted.

The ROP insanity seems to have no limits.
We should find that woman and rescue her.
Sorry, couldn't resist.
aren't women just commodities inIslamic countries?
"50 percent of rape victims who did not report to the police were jailed under the Hudood Ordinance."
I'd like to know the REAL percentage of the REAL figure.
In "a couple" of islamic countries where Sharia law took foothold, a woman's testimony equals only half of a man's testimony. That's why a woman who has the misfortune of getting gang-raped, has no hope in hell of getting justice.
Yes, aren't they?
This happens in India too, the accidental stove fires that kill women. A women who survives a husbands death may also be killed for some ungodly reason.
Who was it again that said all religions are the same?
It is safe to say that republics that are based in Christian principle have far better conditions for all their citizens. If you have ever spent time in Islamic countries you know the rights of women are dependent on the mind of their husband who may have taken her as a child for a wife. It is a stark contrast to our culture.
Our culture would find such acts repulsive.
But our country is much different.
There is Catholic/Christian cultures worldwide.
It however is the subjective communities outside of our practices and norms that treat humans in a manner that are repulsive to us.
It happens in bathhouses in San Francisco/Seattle for a dollar or two to the shores of Asian countries where wman walk on leashes for perverted sexual enticement of Men. Not to speak of the pedaphelia market trade world wide.
So to say these women are exclusive to rape is to disregard all in human acts of perversion and not of their own free moral will world wide.
It is wrong. These women have no free will but you can find the same sickness in your own country.
If you want to start somewhere and choose these women as an example ok but you cannot possibly blame a one culture or country on pervertive acts when the same acts are in our own country as well.
That WOULD make them the most virtuous country in the world, wouldn't it? I mean, shouldn't that be every two minutes?
There was a time that it was NOT politically incorrect to call these people what they are: SAVAGES.
Excuse me? You are sadly mistaken, Abdullah. While you are correct that rape and the other abuses you name happen here, This article points out two important differences:
(1) The RATE, that is the number of rapes per person in Pakistan is WAY higher than here.
(2) The POLICE, the government, the local authorities, in Pakistan COOPERATE in the rapes and murders by refusing to provide justice to the victims and cooperating with the perpetrators.
We are not trying to compare one perfect country to another vicious country. We ARE saying that though our country and culture are not perfect, we are not anything like so bad as Pakistan which has been unable to provide itself with a stable government since its birth as a nation and which also institutionalizes the sadistic and brutal oppression of women.
There may be noble Muslims, but as it is currently practiced in many parts of the world Islam is a cloak for pathological anger, for blaming one's own faults on others, and for brutalizing women, and enforcing ignorance on the population as a whole.It's worse than pathetic, it's a shame.
