Victimless Crimes (Short Note)

In white-collar or common crimes, people’s economic or personal wellbeing is endagenered against will (or without their direct knowledge). By contrast, sociolgoists use the term victimless crimes to describe the willing exchange among adults of widely desired, but illegal, goods and services. Despite the social costs to families and frineds of those engaged in such behaviour, may people in Pakistan continue to indulge in gambling, prostitution, alcoholism, and use of drugs as victimless crimes in which there s no “victim” other than the offender himself. As a result, there is pressure from Islamic Fundamentalists’ organizations on the government to enforce Islamic Sharia in the country.
