Keywords:Adultery, Dissatisfaction, Forbidden Sins, Fornication, Individual Freedom, Moral Responsibility, Repression, Sex Crimes
The objective of this research is to explore the effects of sexual repression in Pakistan and its potential connection to sexual crimes, such as rape, child molestation, and incest. Sexuality is a fundamental human inclination, but in many cultures, including Pakistan, societal, religious, and cultural constraints have historically limited open discussions about this topic. These constraints often result in sexual repression and may have unintended consequences on individuals and society as a whole. Repressed desires may contribute to sexual crimes, posing a significant threat to public safety. For comprehensive understanding about the issues of adultery, in depth interviews were conducted and data was collected from different stakes of allied areas such as advocates, religious scholars, parents, media persons etc. For the collection of facts purposive sampling was carried out by the researcher. Current study explored a comprehensive approach to address the issue of zina within an Islamic framework, emphasizing the importance of compassion, justice, and adherence to Quranic principles. It is suggested that instead of punitive measures, addressing the root causes and dissatisfactions that lead to zina is essential. It is recommended that teachings of Islam should be added in secondary school level curriculum for the awareness of the youth. Further research is recommended to better understand and eliminate these underlying causes.
