Violence against women and children is a very common scenario in our country. Rape, murder, trafficking, torture (psychologically and physically) are the words only applicable to the women and children. Because, society thinks they are the most vulnerable to attack. Nari O Shishu Nirjatan Daman Ain, 2000 is a time befitting legal instrument for the better protection of women and children. This Legislation is of special nature but its wider use and application in legal institutions recognize it as a significant legal development in Bangladesh. Made a commendable work on this by using relevant case references mostly from various mainstream Law Reports of Bangladesh.
The book has been revised with latest information where relevant. The previous edition contained 18 Acts related to offences against woman and child. This edition has added 13 more Acts including CEDAW convention. Most of the Acts in the book comprise both English and Bengali provisions. One special thing of the book is, every Act’s title is written with year of amendment too. This book incorporates more than 1000 proper footnotes.
So far, the book deserves credits of being a useful textbook and stands as a latest candidate in the legal arena. This book will be of great utility for law students, lawyers, judges, teachers and other enthusiastic learners.
