Women’s Right to Equality with Reference to Citizenship Laws in Pakistan
There are several ways through which a person can become a citizen of a state. A person while becoming a citizen of a particular state must fulfil certain conditions before acquiring such a position. The same conditions have also been mentioned in the citizenship laws of Pakistan but there is a discrimination on the basis of gender. While the 1973 Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan has made it clear in its article 25 that there should be no discrimination on the basis of gender, this research examines the citizenship laws of Pakistan in this perspective. As there are refugees such as Afghans refugees etc, and other foreigners are living, who are married to Pakistani national females and are facing this issue, therefore an endure has been made to find some solution within the existing laws. Here in this research the primary laws, various case laws as well as other scholarly written research articles have been examined.
