The Prudents is also willing to train large number of volunteers for the Crises Management, which will definitely help community in the time of crises. Legal Aid Situation of human rights is very miserable and rosy in Pakistan. It has been observed and found that there are several factors like feudal lords, bureaucratic dispensation of justice, political interference, long term and complicated judicial system, immense powers given to police, bureaucracy and above all, low rate of literacy are the main causes that leads to the violation or infringement of even the fundamental rights of the human being in the country. These situations are no doubt making the prisons overcrowded day by day.
Prudent in the past was mainly providing free medical services to the needy and poor people of the society but after the deep observation has now decided to take up and proceed in many challenging cases of illegal confinement of minors, women in severe family and domestic problems and the needy and poor persons detained in the jail in the minor offence just because of the reason that no body is in their family to help them out to get rid of the cases as well as others. Prudent tries to trace and identify such cases with the support of lawyers and other sources and the concerned authorities and get them released by providing free legal assistance to them whenever required. Prudents has also established a free legal aid center with the collaboration of AMANAT Law Associates where the team of volunteer lawyers is providing free legal aid and advice to the victims of Human Rights violations.
(One of the basic motto of the Prudent) or Prudent believes that every individual of the society should feel secure and must enjoy the equal rights and duties living in the civil society. This is only possible when every individual in the society enjoys the fundamental rights and the protection is provided against the human rights abuses.
