 Pakistan Ranked 104th in 125 For Providing Property Rights for Women

When it comes to awarding its women property rights, Pakistan comes a woeful 104th out of the 125 countries.

The listing appears in the International Property Right Index (IPR) 2010, The News said.


Despite the fact that 98 percent of the Pakistani population is Muslim and the religion Islam gives the right of inheritance to all inheritors either male or female, Pakistan's ranking shows the poor condition of the inheritance rights for women in the country, Xinhua reported.

The issue was raised in a study titled "Denial of Women's Rights of Inheritance: Enhancing their Vulnerabilities to Domestic and Social Violence" recently published by the "Awaz Foundation Pakistan".

The research showed that ownership of house and land is greater for men (65 percent) as compared to women (15 percent).

The research was conducted in the southern part of Punjab province with a specific focus on five cities, the most exposed to violence, including DG Khan, Vehari, Sahiwal, Rahimyar Khan and Muzaffargarh.
