A few days ago, the National Assembly has declared the public hanging of the rapists with a sizable majority. Under this matter, the two ministers of the ruling party have come face-to-face.
Here is the resolution, “This house strongly condemns the brutal killing of 8-year-old Iwaz Noor in Nowshera and demands that to stop these shameful and brutal killings of children and give a strong deterrence effect, the killers and rapists should not only be given the death penalty by hanging but they should be hanged publically.”
Meanwhile, Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry has tweeted about the matter of the public hanging of the rapists. He has criticized the punishment for child abuse claiming it quite harsh.
He tweeted: “This is just another grave act in line with brutal civilization practices. Societies act in a balanced way. Barbarism is not the answer to crimes, this is another expression of extremism.”
However, the State Minister for Parliamentary Affairs Ali Mohammad Khan reacted strongly to his tweet. He said, “Those calling Islamic punishments as barbaric are themselves cruel.”
He further said that “The tribal society is the most civilized society in the world where women are given respect.”
اللہ الحق ہے اور اس کا حکم الحق ہے
اسلامی سزاؤں کو ظلم و بربریت کہنے والے خودظالم ہیں
دوسرا قبائلی معاشرہ دنیا کا سب سے مہذب معاشرہ ہے جہاں عورت کی عزت، بڑوں کا ادب اور پختون ولی ہے۔ جہاں سر قربان کیا جاتا ہے لیکن عزت نہیں۔
مجھے فخر ہے اپنےقبائلی معاشرہ پہ
