    LAHORE - Leaders of religious parties at an “Ulema Convention” hosted by JUI-S have rejected women protection bill and reiterated their stance to launch a joint movement against the government’s ‘un-Islamic moves’.

    ---

    The religious parties and religio political parties including JUI-F, JI, JUP, JUI-S, Tehrike Islami and others demand withdrawal of the Act inter alia on the ground that the Council of Islamic Ideology and Ulema Council were not consulted before passing this law. These parties strongly believe the Act is contrary to the Islamic injunctions.

    Muhammad Khan Sherani, Chairman of the Council and an MNA of JUI-F has also rejected the Act as contrary to Quran and Sunnah. While a member of the Council and a section of ulema do not subscribe to this viewpoint.

    ---

    Addressing the meeting, PUC chairman Hafiz Tahir Ashrafi said that people of Pakistan were guardians of 'blasphemy laws'.
    He categorically stated that 'blasphemy laws' can neither be annulled nor amended and any bid to transform Pakistan into a liberal country will be foiled.
    “Being Pakistani, we should keep check on conspiracies to turn Pakistan into a liberal state," Ashrafi further stressed.

    ---

    But despite the alarmingly high incidents of violence against women, religious and political parties and members of the law fraternity are vehemently rejecting the recently passed Punjab Protection of Women against Violence Act 2016, and are terming it “contrary to Islamic teachings.”

    It's clearly a cultural issue. If they actually followed the Quran and sunnah's pronouncements on women, they would put even Scandinavia to shame. Apparently.

    Council of Islamic Ideology ... :facepalm:
    The same council that blocked a bill that would restrict/ban child marriage because it was deemed "un-Islamic" (on "purely religious grounds" ) ...

    Pisslam, I mean Islam is the true religion for the world and the only one for equality.
    No, you don't understand the wisdom of Islam. It's gender equity not equality. It's just so perfect that way.

    A religion that permits men to have up to 4 wives, and allows men to beat their rebellious wives.

    I just cringe anytime i see female muslim women defending Islam.

    No she isn't confused.


    The only rights your religion promotes are the rights to rape and occasional prostitution.
