A parliamentary committee of Pakistan has approved the ‘controversial’ law under which any criticism or ridicule of powerful military forces (Armed Forces) is imprisoned for two years or fine up to Rs 5 lakh or both. Can occur. The Standing Committee on Home Affairs of the National Assembly approved the law on Wednesday, despite strong condemnation from the opposition parties.
Opposition parties are calling it contradictory to fundamental rights. Many governments in Pakistan, which have been under the military rulers for almost half the time since their formation, have been removed before the completion of their tenure at the behest of the country’s powerful army. The coup in Pakistan is nothing new.
Opposition fiercely protests
Explain that this law, brought for the purpose of amending the Pakistani Penal Code (PPC), was introduced in Parliament by the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Party MP Amjad Ali Khan. Other opposition leaders including Syed Aga Rafiullah, leader of the opposition Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), vehemently opposed the bill. The opposition is accusing the Pakistan government of snatching away freedom of expression.
Imran Khan surrounded by his statement
On the other hand, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan got involved in controversies on Thursday. Jemima Goldsmith, the former wife of Imran Khan, criticized the former cricketer’s statement that he blamed the ‘inappropriate’ attire of women for the rise in incidents of rape and sexual harassment in the country.
Goldsmith wrote on Twitter that I hope this is a wrong translation or misquoted. The Imran I knew used to say, ‘Put a curtain on a man’s eyes, not a woman’s.’ Jemima also quoted the Quran saying that it is necessary for men to cover their eyes. She also shared a news report from a British newspaper in which Khan blamed women’s attire for the increase in rape cases.
