KARACHI: The netizens have clashed over Prime Minister Imran Khan’s recent call for the castration of rapists due to the motorway gang-rape incident that occurred last week.
Yesterday, the prime minister said that he would like convicted rapists to be publicly executed or chemically castrated. Surgical castration involves the loss of testicles. This procedure applies to males only while chemical castration is used to reduce the sexual urge. A drug is used here to reduce sexual drives and the capacity for sexual arousal.
Some netizens on Twitter praised the prime minister’s call for the castration of rapists and most of them opposed the idea.
There is genuinely no other option. We need to protect our women, children at all costs. These animals need taming. Take away their ability to commit such heinous crimes. Let them live the rest of their lives in shame#ChemicalCastrationForRapists pic.twitter.com/w4bIMUJ3mf

As much as I hate that public hangings for pedophile and rapists might never happen but it was great to see the Prime Minister at least agreeing to it..the bright side is that #ChemicalCastrationForRapists will be discussed now. We as people of Pak need to back this!! 🙏🏽🙏🏽

Anaphrodisiac drugs (testosterone suppressing) effects lasts only 3-5 yrs. So, who would guarantee that those rapists would not rape again and become psychopath (antisocial).
So, public hanging is best option. #ChemicalCastrationForRapists pic.twitter.com/U1XRYQ9pZU

What a miserable decision it is, do you ever think castration will produce psychopaths, extremist, and vengeful people in our society. The rapist will become more violent after this. The only solution for rapists is death penalty
WE DON’T SUPPORT #ChemicalCastrationForRapists

#ChemicalCastrationForRapists will NOT remove the violent mindset of men. Why is this move being lauded!?
