Islamabad, Feb.12 (ANI): Criticising the Parliament for passing a Women Rights Bill, Pakistan National Assembly member Jamshed Dasti has said the house has insulted Islamic society by doing so.
Dasti said rights of men should also be taken note of, and that he would soon move a bill in this regard in the lower house.
Dasti vehemently opposed the Women Rights Bill, saying it was tantamount to an insult to the whole Islamic society.
He also criticised former President General Pervez Musharraf's regime, and said that any law which was made in the general's rule has become a problem today.
Leaders belonging to radical parties such as the Jamaat-e Islam (JI) and the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI) had also objected to the bill in the lower house, saying that it was a violation of the fundamental norms of Islam and the constitution.
They said that such a law would promote "vulgarity among women", and proposed sending the bill to the Council of Islamic Ideology for further review. (ANI)
