Pakistan to make rapists impotence, bill passed in Parliament

Islamabad: A bill to punish rapists was passed in a joint session of Parliament in Islamabad, Pakistan on Wednesday (November 17, 2021). In this bill, there is a provision for the punishment to make impotence the guilty of rape through chemical. The Criminal Law (Amendment) Bill, 2021 seeks to amend the Pakistan Penal Code, 1860 and the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1898.

It says, 'Chemical concentration is a process duly notified by the rules framed by PM. This makes a person unable to have sex at any time in his life. It is prescribed by the court through medicines. It is governed by the notified Medical Board. Since the passage of the Bill, some organisations in Pakistan have come out in protest. Senate Mushtaq Ahmed of Jamaat-e-Islami termed it as un-Islamic and called it against Sharia. According to him, the rapist should be punished for public execution. Impotence is not mentioned in Sharia.

The new law to punish rapists in Pakistan was being considered since last year. In November 2020, PM Imran Khan gave in-principle approval for the enactment of the law. There were subsequent reports that the draft bill was presented to the PM by Pakistan's law ministry in the cabinet meeting.
