A/ Darul Ihsan Centre, a Muslim/Islamic faith-based education and welfare organisation, places on record that prostitution is totally impermissible and unacceptable in Islam
B/ We fully support and commend our government that prostitution remains a criminal offence in the
C/ Further, government needs to criminalize both ‘clients and adult sex workers’ in terms of prostitution in the country As a welfare based Public Benefit Organisation we are well aware of the public outrage at the total lack of moral values attributed to prostitution and its harmful impact on our society which already experiences sexual and gender violence.
At the same time we are also aware that desperate socio-economic conditions – to a great extent – drives people into prostitution.
Government has to effectively enforce all laws criminalising prostitution, eliminate this moral scourge in our society and provide the necessary social structures for the rehabilitation of sex workers/prostitutes.
