Islamic Ideology Council: The government of Pakistan has once again succumbed to the fundamentalists. He has removed from the new law the controversial provision of neuter by chemical means from the Anti-Rape Law (Anti-Rape Law). This decision of the government has come after the objection of ‘Council of Islamic Ideology’ (CII). He objected to such punishment and termed it as ‘un-Islamic’.
Recently got approval
Earlier, Parliament had approved a new law aimed at expediting convictions and giving harsher punishment to criminals. The Criminal Law (Amendment) Bill, 2021 was passed along with 33 other bills in a joint session of Parliament on Wednesday. Parliamentary Secretary for Law and Justice Malika Bokhari said in a press conference that after CII objected to this clause was removed. The CII is a constitutional body of Pakistan that provides legal advice to the government and parliament on Islamic issues.
In Islamabad, Law Minister Farogh Naseem told media persons that the CII had termed the punishment of rapists for chemical sterilization as “un-Islamic”. Giving clarification on the clause of neuter in this, the Law Minister said that this change was made in the bill just before it was passed. According to the Constitution of Pakistan, no such law will be made in the Islamic State of Pakistan which is against the Qur’an and Sunnah. At the same time, according to critics, less than four percent of cases of sexual assault or rape in Pakistan result in conviction.
