KARACHI: Renowned social media influencer Waqar Zaka has claimed that the law of hanging the rapist publicly will be passed.
In a tweet on Friday, Zaka wrote that he talked to Federal Minister for Water Resources Faisal Vawda over the matter.
“Good job @FaisalVawdaPTI, inshallah Faisal will get hanging the rapist in public law pass, we are counting on your efforts now @ImranKhanPTI— Waqar Zaka (@ZakaWaqar) September 10, 2020,” he added.
Earlier this year, the federal minister had opposed a resolution in the National Assembly calling for public hangings.
Fawad said the anger and fury of the people were justified under the circumstances but it was not the solution.
He said Pakistan is among the countries with the highest number of death sentences and the highest in terms of the number of people on death row.
Earlier this year in February, the National Assembly adopted a resolution calling for public hanging of the child abuse convicts with a majority vote.
The resolution was tabled Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Ali Muhammad Khan who claimed the prime minister wants to hang for child abuse convicts.
However, the resolution was opposed by Fawad Chaudhry and Minister for Human Rights Shireen Mazari along with the opposition Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP).
