CCI terms chemical castration of rape convicts as ‘un-Islamic’


ISLAMABAD: Islamic Ideology Council (IIC) has objected to the chemical castration punishment for rape convicts and termed it un-Islamic, ARY NEWS reported.

While terming chemical castration punishment for the rape convict as un-Islamic, it asked the government to suggest more effective punishments in this regard.

Other than this, the CCI also decided to write letters to multiple boards of seminaries- wifaq ul madaris- and higher education commissions to hold debates over rising incidents of sexual assault.

It was agreed to write letters to the multiple wifaq ul madaris and educational boards to hold open debates and discussions aimed at tackling the rising incidents of sexual assault.
