Fact Sheet: Access to Justice Project

 

Provision of equitable justice to all citizens is the adherence of social contract between state and its citizens. In the developing world this adherence has been diluted. This dilution is attributed to mistrust of the justice system leading to disillusionment. The citizens especially the poor and the vulnerable tend to lose their identity as citizens as a result of this disillusionment. The constitution of Pakistan guarantees this but weak capacity and other systemic problems of justice sector institution undermine this basic service provision. To ensure Access to Justice of Poor & Vulnerable in Pakistan, in July 2012, UNDP / UNOPS launched its Legal Empowerment of the Poor Programme in 16 districts across Pakistan including GB Region under which INP has contributed major achievements.

Discussion: Absence of State’s Writ Fuelling Extremist Narrative

 

The media is not solely to blame for reinforcing an extremist narrative, it is the absence of the state’s writ which has led to its proliferation.

These views were expressed by participants at a discussion on “Media, Extremism and Islamic Narratives” at Insaf Network Pakistan (INP) on Tuesday.

In Senator Farhatullah Babar’s opinion, it is narratives in the name of Islam instead of narratives of Islam. He said the media had been coerced by extremists with no protection afforded by the state. “What do you expect in a country where cameras are insured but the people who use them are not,” he said. In this view this was one of the main factors which had created space for people like Mullah Radio and others like him.
