A jirga in Bajaur’s Wara Mamund district has banned the women in the area from
calling the radio and visiting the Sada-e-Aman Centre, where women are given
cash for giving birth.
The members of the jirga said that Rs10,000 fine will be imposed on the
violators.This is a violation of human rights, said Deputy Commissioner Fayyaz
Sherpao while reacting to the jirga’s decision. He said that the tribal leaders
should tell the administration if they have any reservations but they cannot
impose restrictions on the movement of women.
He said that the district administration has called a meeting with the jirga
members at 3:30pm to persuade them to take back their decision. Action will be
taken against them if they don’t listen, Sherpao added.Ajmal Khan Wazir, the
Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government spokesperson, said that Bajaur is a part of the
province now. KP’s laws apply to the merged districts. “We have formed
committees for people to come and discuss their problems,” he said while
speaking to a private television channel. The jirga passed decisions on murder too.
The members issued a written statement of their new policies.
If a person has killed another knowingly then the heirs of the deceased have the
right to avenge the death by killing the murderer. If the heirs don’t take the other
person’s life, then the deceased’s brothers and parents will decide the
punishment, and both families will sign an agreement on it.
There will be no rivalry between families if a person is killed accidentally or if an
innocent person is killed during a fight. Those responsible will, however, have to
give monetary compensation the deceased’s family. The amount will be decided
by the area’s elders. If someone is accidentally injured, then those who fired shots
will pay for the treatment.If a person is murdered at night, then no one can be
accused of it without solid proof. If a woman is found in an objectionable position
with another man then they will both be killed.
If a woman is spotted with a man who is not related to her, then the parents of
single women can decide if they want to call him their enemy or forgive them.
The man will, however, He exiled.
