‘Rapists To Be Chemically Castrated In Pakistan Under New Laws’ Approved By Prime Minister

‘Rapists To Be Chemically Castrated In Pakistan Under New Laws’ Approved By Prime Minister (Updated: Thursday, 26th November 2020, 03:08 AM)


Pakistan’s Prime Minister, Imran Khan has reportedly approved in principle a law on chemical castration of rapists

Local reports said Mr. Khan approved the law which would also fast track sexual assault cases during a federal cabinet meeting on Tuesday, November 24th. But Pakistan’s government is yet to make an official announcement.

The decision was made after the law ministry presented a draft of the anti-rape ordinance at the meeting.

According to GeoTV, Kahn said in the meeting: ‘We need to ensure a safe environment for our citizens.’

 

He reportedly said the legislation would be clear and transparent with strict enforcement by officials.

The draft legislation is expected to increase women’s role in policing and improve witness protection.

Kahn said rape survivors will be able to register complaints without fear and will have their identities protected by the government.

Pakistan has witnessed an increase in incidents of rape since 2018, when a serial killer raped and murdered seven-year-old Zainab Ansari in the eastern city of Kasur in Punjab province.

Cases of sexual harassment and violence against women have also been on the rise with nearly 1,000 women being killed each year in so-called ‘honor killings’ for allegedly violating conservative norms on love and marriage.
