Punjab Assembly Ka Tahafuz-e-Khawateen Bill – by Prof. Riffat Mazhar – 28th February

There were made some further amendments to the Hudood Ordinance, e. If anyone says that she was punished because of Qazaf false accusation of rape then Qazaf Ordinance, Clause no.

In this long tenure, not once did I come across a case in which a rape victim was d punishment because she was unable to present four witnesses. There is a well-known incident according to which a high-ranking companion had interceded with the Noble Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam for a woman who had committed theft as a result of which she deserved Hadd. On the other hand, the bill has been fiercely criticised by Islamist groups in Pakistan, [16] and religious parties boycotted the parliamentary vote on the bill on the basis that it was inaugurating an era of “free sex.

Their roles in the society are different. Therefore this part of the bill is also against the injunctions of the Holy Quran and Sunnah. The Noble Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam reprimanded the companion and said: Hence, the result of this amendment is that if any man has been accused of Zina which calls for Hadd, but after hearing the witnesses it turns out that the man had compelled the woman, or, if Zina could not be proven, but it could be proven that the man had abducted the woman, then the court can neither award a punishment for rape, nor for abduction, rather the court will let the culprit go, knowing perfectly well that he had kidnapped the woman and raped her.

Secondly, obliging the plaintiff to immediately produce four witnesses in case of Hadd, and two eye witnesses in case of lewdness, seems to be a quite unique feature of our martial law.

According to this propaganda, if any rape victim intends to sue the offender under the Hudood ordinance, she is asked to produce four witnesses to support her claim.

The Bill remains controversial amongst many liberals and moderates in Pakistan who argue it does not go far enough as stoning to death is still theoretically on a punishment, though not implemented by the courts, the liberals argue it should be removed entirely.

From this becomes clear that if any woman is forced to commit Zina, then she cannot be punished for this, rather the one who transgressed will have to suffer the prescribed punishment Hadd which has been mentioned in Surah Noor, Ayat 2. There is a setting that is limiting the maximum time for a given script to be executed: The issue of police excess against women could be addressed through declaring the arrest of the complainant under any clause of the Hudood Ordinance a criminal offence until the case is decided by the court.

From Bipl, the free encyclopedia. It is, but not clear why the clause is added that if the court does not find sufficient substance in favor of the case then it will dismiss the case since it is already covered under Criminal Act clause In a situation when strong evidence is available to prove the crime the court dealing with the rape case cannot award any punishment.

In clause 20 of Hudood Ordinace it was stated that if through evidence it is proven that the offense committed is a crime punishable by a law other than the Hudood Ordinance then if the crime falls in the jurisdiction of this court it can award punishment to the accused. Arbab Alamgir Khan Dr. This risk of imprisonment, it is contended, has kept many women from trying to bring their attackers to justice.

And if the court of law takes such a decision it may not be because the woman was unable to present four witnesses but because the court arrived d this decision after giving due consideration to all the available evidence. Let us take a serious and realistic look at the basic points mentioned in this bill.
