Women’s bill termed ‘step in right direction’

KARACHI: The War Against Rape (WAR) has welcomed the approval of Women Protection Bill by both the houses, terming it ‘a step in the right direction’.In a press release issued here on Friday, it said the WAR expects that under the new law rape cases would no more be dealt under the Zina cases. “It is of a great relief that trumped up charges of Zina has been made virtually impossible and no woman would be sent to jail prior to conviction,” it said.About approving of proposed procedural changes in the registration of rape complaints, it said: “It not only would take cognisance of a rape victim’s complaint but also eliminates the role of the police.“The WAR demands complete repeal of Hudood Ordinances, for it fears the crumbling among political parties over the ordinance would make the implementation of these new laws perhaps rather tricky,” the press release added.
