Administrator Karachi, Sindh government spokesman and CM Advisor on Law Barrister Murtaza Wahab, on Saturday said that sexual harassment cases should be completed within 90 days, but those cases take 20 months.

“Cases of sexual harassment are increasing due to late verdicts. The judiciary, civil society and the government must come to a consensus on this issue, especially sexual harassment cases, as soon as possible,” the administrator said while addressing a seminar at a local hotel under the UN Women’s Programme.

“I would like to tell you today that as a woman, my mother trained me very well because my father passed away when I was 19 years old,” the administrator said.

He said that his mother brought him to this place alone, adding that she trained and guided me at every stage. “My grandmother gave my mother a good education and training which made all this possible.

“My father’s early death made my mother empowered financially and administratively, and that’s what she passed on to me so that I could carry on the training she provided and serve the people,” he said. He added that when a woman is empowered, she trains her children in a way that suits her.

Wahab said that a woman should be empowered so that she can decide for herself what she should do, not let the elders of the house try to impose their decisions on her.

“When a woman is empowered, she will be able to lead her home in the right way,” he said. “Only a woman can change our society because a woman’s lap is the child’s first school.”

The administrator said that it had been observed that in rural and urban areas, women are empowered in some cases but in some places they are ignored, their decisions are not taken into account. “We must give women their due respect and acknowledge their decisions.
