KIDF Center for Peace and Social Justice in Pakistan
To work for the Social Justice, Rule of Law and Human Rights in Pakistan and strive for making Pakistan a social welfare state as enunciated by its founding father in his speech to the legislative Assembly on 11 Aug 1947. “All its citizens will be equal, they will enjoy equal rights — irrespective of caste, creed, colour or gender; they will be free to practise their religions, go to their temples, mosques and churches, etc.
The people of Pakistan facce a lot of challenges to their inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights as guaranteed by the universal declaration of human rights. As the first article to the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human rights states that” All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. Every day incidences of violence, forced disappearances, torture and misuse of authority are being reported, and many more go unreported. There is a long way to go for independence of Judiciary and freedom of media in Pakistan. The judicial decisions often come under the political, beauracratic and pressure group influences, and media is yet far away from reaching to the mile stone of "free and unbiased" reporting.
KIDF through its Centre for Peace and Social Justice in Pakistan works for the social and institutional justice in Pakistan in collaboration with other organizations, members and supporters.
