(Dunya News) – Violence against women in Balochistan has seen a decline in the year 2017.

However, the figures failed to see the same trend when it came to cases of  honour killing . More than 20 women were subjected to the barbaric practice while countless others became victims of domestic violence.

Due to lack of education, families forcefully murder countless women in the name of honour, a custim that still prevails in various parts of the country. In Balochistan, the cases of  honour killing  reached 20 this year where in Naseerabad five women and four in Dera Murad Jamali were killed in the name of honour. Three other were killed in Dera Allah.

Twelve women died at the hands of either their fathers, husbands or brothers due to domestic disputes while three women committed suicide unable to curb with the circumstances of their lives.

Law officials and civil society believe that violence against women can only be stopped if there is mass awareness raised on the issue, cases against the violence reported and the justice taking its course.

In Balochistan, 51% women are deprived of basic needs.

Experts say that working from within the confinements of their homes, while women do contribute financially not just to their families but also to the society at large, their own lives are still at a huge risk

The Rise of China-Europe Railways

The Rise of China-Europe RailwaysMarch 6, 2018The Dawn of a New Commercial Era?For over two millennia, technology and politics have shaped trade across the Eurasian supercontinent. The compass and domesticated camels helped the “silk routes” emerge between 200 and 400 CE, and peaceful interactions between the Han and Hellenic empires allowed overland trade to flourish. A major shift occurred in the late fifteenth century, when the invention of large ocean-going vessels and new navigation methods made maritime trade more competitive. Mercantilism and competition among Europe’s colonial powers helped pull commerce to the coastlines. Since then, commerce between Asia and Europe has traveled primarily by sea.1Against this historical backdrop, new railway services between China and Europe have emerged rapidly. Just 10 years ago, regular direct freight services from China to Europe did not exist.2 Today, they connect roughly 35 Chinese…
