Abstract


This paper highlights the issue of child abuse and its existence in Pakistan, alongside critically analyzing the causes and effects of it. Firstly, child abuse and its types- physical, sexual, emotional and neglect are explained in detail. The prevalence of child abuse in Pakistan is discussed with the help of latest statistics available from child welfare and protection NGOs such as Sahil. Then, a critical analysis is carried out which examines the causes and effects of child abuse, explaining the impact of child abuse on the individual as well as society. Finally, the paper proposes a set of recommendations to deal with the menace of child abuse in Pakistan. The recommendations entail treatment techniques as well as prevention measures, which if adapted, can help the country in overcoming the grave issue of child abuse, thereby providing the children with a safe and secure environment to grow and develop.
