Women and our society Once there was a famous and a beautiful prostitute. Everyone wanted her but she was out of the reach of many as she was an expensive and a premium prostitute. A man auctioned for her at a high price and put a strange condition in front of her. The man said that she could only come to him if she offered two navafil as prayer. She was both surprised and annoyed on his wish of his buyer but as she was sold for the night, she had to follow his directions. She got up and started to say her prayer. As she started her prayer the man prayed to God: “O dear God! I only had the power to bring her in front of you, but it is only you who can mold her heart.” As the man was praying, she bowed against God in sajida and her whole world changed. She got the light to the right path and turned into a very pious lady. History did not recognize that man but everyone knows that lady who later on became famous and was known as Rabia Basri. From that day no man ever saw her and she totally devoted herself to God. She sublimated his soul to God. She was changed but for the society she always remained a prostitute. Our society: In our society people have double standards which are surely questionable. Everyone in our society today hates the prostitutes but we all are involved in the mental and physical prostitution. Our society is a male dominant society where women are dependent on men. There is no forgiveness for the women. Why women are considered as a source of enjoyment only? When one honors a woman, one wishes that she covers herself and because of that act one feels good. But when someone has a lust for a woman then all these acts are unpleasant for him. It is the society who predisposes a woman to the prostitution. These bitter facts are not acceptable for the society. Minto has written much on women prostitution. He used to drink alcohol but nobody criticize him on his this act but his literature always faced criticism. What actually a woman is? Either she is a daughter, sister, wife or mother she cannot make any other relation. Being a woman she cannot get the due respect. For the sake of respect she has to fit herself in any of the above relation. Why a woman is so weak? Why she cannot get her due respect as being a woman only? There is no place for that woman in our society who tries to fit her in some other way except those four relations. She can b a daughter, sister, wife or mother only no other relation exists for her but the relation of lust.
