Abstract

The aim of this article is to present an analytical review of juvenile delinquents, generally in Pakistan and particularly in Sindh. Pakistan is facing an ever-increasing Juvenile delinquency and there are insufficient Juvenile Jails to humanely accommodate them in for their rehabilitation. It is obvious that the crimes by delinquents obviously differ by type and intentions from traditional crimes by adults. The open ended data, through well-structured and pre-tested Questionnaires, was collected only from Karachi Central Prison and Borstal Institutions located in Karachi. The result manifests the causes that are based on conflicting environments, in and outside home, as well as spoiling attitudes and bad impact influenced by media. Poverty is the nucleus of all the anti-social actions and is the main cause of increasing juvenile delinquency. Juvenile’s detention in jail with adult criminals is another cause of generating hardened criminals. The study recommends separate Jails for Juveniles in every District, providing them with educational and vocational training during probationary imprisonment, and dealing with the juvenile delinquents as per the clauses provided in Juvenile Justice System Ordinance (JJSO) 2000. The JJSO 2000 would be the only solution to facilitate the often innocent offender to become the active social worker of his or her community.
