What’s Wrong With This Picture?

There is concern in Pakistan for the workers of the oldest profession in the world, so a workshop was held on how these folks can protect themselves from disease.

Given the culture over there, I am not so sure this will be successful.  What good is it knowing the precautions if the clients refuse to do their part?

Then there is this information:

“But prostitution remains illegal and anathema to many in Muslim-majority Pakistan. It is an ever-present fact of life, but never really acknowledged.

The last two decades, given the increasing Islamisation of Pakistani society, have further reinforced stereotypes about such women.

But the profession has only grown.”

One has to wonder why the profession is growing, given the above statements.
