Acid Survivors Need Your Support! When Quality Becomes A Duty…

December 23rd, 2010 by Valerie Khan Leave a reply »

Acid Survivors Foundation has been concerned from day one about the need to provide quality services to acid survivors…ASF is not perfect, but the ongoing vigilance, the commitment,  the integrity as well as the will to follow a learning process, the humility that characterizes all ASF team members certainly helps to achieve significant results and generate a significant impact…

When the first acid crime bill was tabled in the National Assembly in 2009, ASF saluted the initiative but clearly stated that the bill had many lacunae, and should therefore not be adopted as such…Hence, ASF was contacted by the Ministry of Women Development and in collaboration with international organisations, local civil society, legal experts, stakeholders, survivors themselves, a new acid crime bill was drafted and submitted to NCSW (National Commission on the Status of Women) for legal review…

This new draft, this new acid crime bill, is the result of critical review, thorough research, participative reflection, on ground realities, technical and legal expertise..It is the cry of Pakistani citizens for justice and right to livelihood, it the living example of a consensus and it is the product of democratic consultative process…

We urge the Pakistani elected representatives and the Pakistani Ministry of Law and Justice, to hear that cry, that democratic call and no other, we urge the relevant stakeholders to wait for acid crime government bill to be ready before adopting any kind of legislation that will hinder human rights instead of promoting them…
