On Friday, 29th September – a tweetchat was carried out by Habiba from Strategic Advocacy for Human Rights (SAHR) @SAHR_org which discussed the perspectives of the participants on Accountability and Justice.
The tweetchat raised questions which further redefined justice. The idea conveyed through the tweetchat is – justice is not merely giving a criminal a sentence, but along with it – a systemic change, a stronger implementation of the existing laws. And justice is not totally delivered until the government (along with punishing the criminal) extends support to the survivors, provides them the opportunities for the betterment of their life. The discussion further reminded us of our responsibilities of supporting the victims, fighting for their rights and thus, converting the victims into survivors. The tweetchat was concluded after answering the question – who really is accountable for all this? – the answers ranging from the government to the society itself!
