The Pakistan parliament has passed a bill on Wednesday which aims to chemically castrate habitual rapists. But a senator of Jamaat-i-Islami has protested against the bill and termed it un-Islamic, against the tents of Sharia Law.
The passed bill, known as Criminal Law (Amendment) Bill 2021 is aimed to add the provision of making habitual rapists incapable of such deeds by castrating them.
The bill read, “chemical castration is a process duly notified by rules framed by the prime minister, whereby a person is rendered incapable of performing sexual intercourse for any period of his life, as may be determined by the court through administration of drugs which shall be conducted through a notified medial board”.
Mushtaq Ahmed, a senator of Jamaat-i-Islami, though had protested against the bill. He had termed it un-Islamic and against Sharia Law.
