Federal govt to table bill for rapists’ castration

ISLAMABAD: The federal government has decided that it will bring to parliament a bill to penalize sex offenders or rapists with castration.

According to the sources, Prime Minister Imran Khan has approved of the bill to castrate rapists once proven guilty, and the government bodies will now introduce it to the parliament immediately.

Sources further said, “Federal Minister Faisal Vawda is delegated with the task of furnishing the draft bill which proposes neutering of sex offenders”.

Earlier, Vawda  after meeting the parents of Marwah, a minor girl who fell victim to sex offenders last week and was found dead and dumped in Karachi’s Essa Nagri area, said he will even “kneel down if must, to get the legislation approved for castration.”

  “My ego does not supersede the daughters of this nation” he tweeted. Senator Faisal Javed of PTI took to twitter as well, following Vawda’s bid to legalize the penalty of castration and/or hanging for sex offenders and rapists.

He said severe punishments must be introduced for deterrence of such crimes. He, too, confirmed that the PTI government has embarked on this legislation and will soon table the bill in the National Assembly.

He said that the PM is now onboard for these proposals and the government will soon legislate in favour of “harsher” sentences for the heinous crimes.

Rising incidents of sexual violence shook the country. The government was criticized even as cases of child and women sexual abuse are reported with increasing frequency across the country, has not taken any concrete measures to address flaws in the investigation of such cases or the implementation of the relevant laws.
