November 24, the Pakistani government issued a statement on its official Twitter. The statement said that the Pakistani Cabinet approved a draft legislation that provided for severe penalties, including chemical cutting of rapists, to curb the growing cases of sexual assault against women and children in Pakistan.
The Indian mainstream media such as The Times of India and New Delhi Television soon reported the news one after another.
New Delhi Television reported on the topic of “Pakistan Prime Minister Approves Chemical Rapists”, which attracted a heated discussion Indian netizens in the comment area. Many netizens said that Pakistan’s decision was very wise, saying that it was the best deterrent to psychopaths and rapists.
They also suggested that India should follow this measure. However, some netizens also think that the sentence is too light and the criminal should be sentenced to death. Many netizens directly abandoned themselves and started the “self-hacking mode”.
India needs to adopt this type of law, because the situation is very serious now…
Some people now say they support the same measures in India. Once the Indian government approves, someone will start to shout that it is a violation of human rights.
Pakistan’s brewing of this bill has long been in place, and Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has repeatedly expressed his position to severely punish rapists.
According to Pakistan Today, Imran Khan presided over a meeting of the government legal team on Saturday (21st), which was attended by relevant officials such as Minister of Human Rights Mazari and Pakistani Minister of Justice Nassim, who was sworn in for the third time.
At the meeting, Imran Khan was briefed on the judicial process and the relevant provisions on witness protection. He asked the legal team to quickly come up with a plan to curb such cases and finalize relevant legislation.
Justice for victims must be brought to through prompt trials. Imran Khan added that delaying legislation would be disastrous for the country. Pakistan Today reported that if the draft is passed, it means that the rapist can be chemically slitted once he is proven guilty, and the Pakistani government is expected to submit the draft to Parliament soon.
