LAHORE Society for the Protection of the Rights of the Child



LAHORE Society for the Protection of the Rights of the Child arranged a consultation on “Development of School Based Complaint Mechanism for Corporal Punishment” in collaboration with the Education Department here on Thursday.
The consultation was attended by government educational institutes heads,representative of Children Complaint Office, Punjab Education Foundation and civil society organisations.

While speaking on the occasion, Iftikahr Mubarik of SPARC said, “SPARC appreciated the effort to put ban on corporal punishment in schools through notifications.
Government of Pakistan had promised to present a law banning corporal punishment in 2004, but it never happened, instead notifications were sent to the provincial anddistrict offices and these notifications fall short on the legislation required for conviction and punishment through the justice system”.
He further said that the UN Study on violence against children reflected that millions of children across the world become victim of sexual, physical and emotional violence, many on a daily basis.
