Civil society`s rights by I.A Rehman

Traditionally, the government has been favourably disposed towards charitable enterprises, even the shady ones among them. It is happy with organisations that relieve the state of its responsibility for opening schools or establishing hospitals, but it has a problem with organisations that try to uphold the rights of the people. Those who speak for women`s right to education, or their economic independence, or their political rights are accused of working against Pakistan`s social values.

Little progress on MDGs

The reasons for Pakistan not achieving the MDGs are not hard to fathom: no overhaul of the bureaucracy or administration that must help achieve the goals; no restructuring of the state`s finances to free up money for investments in people centric development; no meaningful national conversation on what people-centric security really means. In the absence of any of that, it is impossible to imagine achieving universal primary education or ensuring environmental stability.
