Abstract

This study is conducted to analyse the Rights of women and children and how important they are to live in Pakistan. The given rights to children and women according to the Sharia principles are violated nowadays in Pakistan, and it has a deep impact on individuals. This study compares the rights of women and children provided by three different religions (Islam, Hinduism, and Christianity). Every religion has its way of guiding its people about worshipping methods and different aspects of life. However, every religion contains a common subject of Rights. Islam and Hinduism have acknowledged the equality of mankind irrespective of their social status and gender as far as their rights are concerned. For this study, secondary qualitative data is used by conducting in-depth interviews of the different religious participants, including opinionated personalities, civil society activists, human and feminine rights groups, eminent lawyers, and judges to draw the recommendations will also be included. In this respect inferences from other Islamic country's experiments shall also be included along with the in-depth thematic analysis of the current issues faced by the children and women of different religions. Every religion has some points which are not in favor of equal rights for women and children. It should be looked after with complete concentration and make sure that the people are providing rights to women and children. Future research must be taken to enlighten further aspects of rights which are still not fulfilling, and people are getting violated because of aspects other than gender and age.
