Iftikhar praised the efforts of district police and district administration to provide security to the victim woman, her family and the arrest of the accused. He directed the district administration for provision of a complete security and an official residence to the victimised family. He said the humiliation of a woman could not be tolerated. Islam and our society never permit us such kind of actions. No jirga has right to decide humiliation to anyone. It cannot be borne. The minister said no kind of domestic dispute could be termed justified for such kind of humiliation of a woman. He said the provincial government would utilise its all resources and means for provision of justice to the victimised family and an exemplary punishment to the culprits so that in future no one could even think to do so. He said the KP government was very keen to provide due status to the females and for this purpose the government had taken so many decisions. He gave the example of establishment of women commission, Women Chamber of Commerce, department of women development and various other programs for provision of opportunity to women to earn at their homes. He said the government would never compromise on the rights of women, their respect and honour.
