The one-day Seminar on “Violence Against Women – Our Role & Responsibility” was held at the campus of Jamia Islamia Mahdul Muslimat, Khalidabad, Baghat, Srinagar.
Dr. Mubeena Ramzan, the chairperson of the organization said that the women rights and up-gradation of their status cannot be achieved by the resolutions and passing of the laws, it never has and it never will.
“It only prompts a mechanical hard bound nature of the problem which otherwise is a soft problem and need to be dealt with similar measures. Given the various example of the recent times she said the society is facing an unparallel of deprivation and stagnation of the most important constituent of the society,” Ramzana said.
She argued with compassion that women weren’t created to do everything what men can do but women were created to do the things that men can’t do.
Dr. Mubeena Ramzan said 40% of contribution to Bait-al-Mal was contributed from the women in the Ottomans Empire and Ansar-un-Nissa strives to achieve the same status of women in the society.
“Oldest degree-granting university in the world i.e., Al-Qarawiyyin University was founded by Fatima al-Fihri, a women. Women have been the pioneeries of the education from the beginning of the Muslim society which is evident from the fact that a great major ofahadiths (sayings of the Prophet, saws) are quoted by none other than his wife, Hazart Ayesha Siddiqa (r.a).
“Masculinisation of women force is by far one of the most important aspects of the problem of the women folk today. It leads to the some of the major problem that women of the society face today,” she said.
Dr. Roshan Ara, Women Studies Centre, University of Kashmir in her address said: Issues of the women and its existence in the society cannot be put to the Government and its agencies alone to be dealt with but it’s the responsibility of every conscious stricken society to work to eradicate these evils and the women has to work on these on their own with the formation of empowerment avenues and organisation like Ansar-un-Nissa and work to help other women to get the share they so graciously deserves and has to be given access to for the overall development of the society. The education of the society has to equally divert to the men as equally as it is about the women. It is the education that has the power to teach the men along with women about ideas that prompt them to deal with the women. Men have to be taught that instead of pointing fingers for every evil in the society at the women, their dressing sense, their living standards, ways and their conduct in the society they need to introspect themselves along in regard to these problem. It is the denial of the genuine space to the women that has created this evil in the society.
