 Pak Government's 'Safe Sex' Workshop for Prostitutes Criticized

Pakistan's oldest religious party, Jamat-e-Islami's (JI) women and family wing has critizised the three-day workshop aimed at educating prostitutes to have safe sex .

The JI said the workshop, which was organized by Sindh AIDS Programme, Government of Sindh in collaboration with the United Nations (UN), was against the country's culture, promoted obscenity and gave legitimacy to prostitution as a legalized profession.

JI's women and family wing chairperson Atiya Nisar condemned the workshop, saying prostitution was a crime in Pakistan and women indulging in the illegal activity are liable to be punished under the Hudood Ordinance and Women Protection Bill.

"Prostitution is a crime. The question is why these women are being trained under government patronage to commit crime in a safe way. This is like training a robber to commit robbery in a safe way," The News quoted Nisar, as saying.

She blamed the government of legalizing prostitution in the country, as about 70 prostitutes were invited in the workshop and were trained about safe sex.

"Instead of teaching safe sex, the government should give them vocational training so that they could earn their livelihood with dignity," Nisar said.
