Kabul (BNA) Not only Afghan community suffers from nefarious tradition of violence against women but it has changed in to a complicated problem that challenges the entire world community.
This nefarious and shameful phenomenon prompted the United Nations to designate November 25th as an International Day for Elimination of Violence against Women.
BNA commentator writes in that regard: 
Violence against women have been changed in to worldwide acute problem that both rich and poor countries suffering of it. As the figures released by United Nations indicate that out of three women, one of them comes under violence in her life time across the world.
Violence against women is global problem which is common across the world from Afghanistan to African, American and European countries.
But the types of violence are different from country to country. For instance, in America the powerful and the world giant economy, in every 18 minutes, women in one way or another suffer from violence. But the problem of violence against women is very awful in third world countries because of various reasons. In these countries the women are mostly the victims of family, ethnical, religious and traditional and economic violence.
But the most common and hideous violence against this sect is family violence which caused mainly by male of the family.
In Afghanistan due to its traditions and cultural and religious peculiarities the violence rate against women is very high and is spreading with high speed. The official figures release by the Independent Commission of Human Rights indicate that since 2002 nearly 4000 cases of violence against women have been recorded for 97 % of them, men are blamed.
The increasing number of violence cases in the country is shocking and a matter of concern.
The authorities of Human Rights Commission of Afghanistan expressing concern say that during the 7 months of Afghan year, 4000 cases of violence against women have been registered while last year the cases were only 1000.
According to knowledgeable politicians, there are numerous factors and reasons that cause the increase of cases of violence against women in Afghan society. The low level of literacy among women, traditional society and patriarchal system of community are the main reasons for prevailing violence against women in the country.
The knowledgeable politicians emphasized that for elimination of violence against women, should be deeply assessed the facts and factors behind the violence against women in our society, in order to find a reasonable solution for it.
So in order to overcome this inhumane practice there is a need to establish a long term procedure and policy to fight against this nefarious phenomenon.
In the first stage, the traditions and believes of people should be respected and the educated people especially religious scholars, should talk about the rights of women entitled by Islam and law. The Imams can play a great and effective role in elimination of violence against women. If the people become aware about the rights and values given by sacred religion of Islam to women, the people especially male will avoid violence against women who have been entitled to such a status and values by holy Quran and traditions of the great prophet of Islam.
It should be mentioned that by holding ceremonial gathering and just by expressing good words about women, we cannot solve the problem, but to save the women of our country, sincere will and practical works and efforts are needed for elimination of violence against women.
