Strict action will be taken against the culprits of rape in Pakistan. The federal cabinet has approved two anti-rape ordinances to deal with rising sexual offenses with women and children. The purpose of these ordinances is to reduce the sexual capacity of rape convicts and punish them with severe punishment like hanging. This ordinance provides for impotent rape by chemical means and speedy hearing in sexual harassment cases.
According to the news, the draft includes increasing the role of women in police system, speedy hearing in rape cases and protection of witnesses. Prime Minister Imran Khan said that this is a serious matter and delay in this matter will not be tolerated. He said, 'We have to create a safe environment for our citizens.'
Now this law will be introduced in Parliament
The Prime Minister said that rape victims will be able to register complaints without fear and the government will hide their identity. Some federal ministers also recommended the hanging of the rapists in public. Faisal Javed Khan, MP of the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf wrote on Twitter that the law will be introduced in Parliament soon. Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) is ready to form the government in Gilgit-Baltistan after securing majority in the assembly.
