Fawad Chaudhry slams calls for hanging, burning rapists

ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry has slammed calls for hanging and burning rapists alive.

Fawad Chaudhry took to Twitter and said, “The demands from the masses of burning them alive and hanging can be expected.”

However, he said, calls for hanging and burning the rapists alive from prominent members of the PTI and the educated faction were a reflection of the society’s violent thinking, which sees violence as the solution to every problem.

The comments came after two members of the ruling party Senator Faisal Javed and Water Resources Minister Faisal Vawda called for extreme punishments for the culprits of the Lahore Motorway gang-rape and the rape and murder of Marwah in Karachi.

Faisal Vawda in a tweet, said, “I have suggested that if the ‘champions of human rights’ are bothered by the public execution of these monsters, then, the law of castration should be passed immediately for these savages.”

Meanwhile, Senator Javed termed the rapists as animals and called for extreme punishments to be given to them. “Human rights are for humans only. What about [the] dignity of a child, a woman? What do a child and a woman go through? Isn’t that brutal? Isn’t that barbarism?” he said.

”Rapists, child abusers are not humans. These animals commit extreme cruelty and brutality hence they deserve extreme punishment,” he added.
