During a meeting of the CII, Maulana Sherani said there was no need to legislate a law for women’s protection when they already had all rights secured under Sharia laws according to the Quran and Sunnah.
Earlier yesterday speaking to journalists in Shikarpur, he had said that he could not comment on the women’s protection bill passed by the Punjab Assembly before reading it. However, he termed it a violation of Islamic laws and said it could not be accepted.
He said assemblies must consult the CII before enacting such legislations. “The CII is a constitutional body, therefore, every bill should be brought to parliament in the light of its recommendations.”.
But the present government avoided doing so in violation of the provisions of the Constitution. He recalled that the government of General Ziaul Haq adhered to the recommendations of CII.
