Rape law rankles some Pakistan lawmakers … Yahoo News.

Posted by QB on September 13, 2006

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan – Lawmakers from a coalition of six Islamic groups threatened on Tuesday to vacate their parliamentary seats if Pakistan’s government changes a rape law criticized by human rights activists.

Under the current law, approved by a former military dictator in 1979, prosecuting a rape case requires testimony from four witnesses, making punishment almost impossible because such attacks are rarely public.

A woman who claims she was raped but fails to prove her case can be convicted of adultery, punishable by death.

Maulana Fazalur Rahman, a leader of the Islamic coalition, said Tuesday that lawmakers in his group would vacate their seats in the National Assembly if the government tries to get the assembly’s approval to change the law.

“We will render every sacrifice for the protection of the Shariah (traditional Islamic) laws,” he said at a news conference.

However, the ruling Pakistan Muslim Party — which has a majority in the assembly — has praised Musharraf for taking steps to amend the law and end the four-witness requirement.

This is the ugliest face of Sunni and Shias religious scholars who are holding up to the laws which are not the part of Islam neither is writen in Qur’an. Their Shariah Laws are based on hearsay and traditions which overrule the Qur’an laws and this is the problem with the Majority of Muslims. There are scholars who are more knowledgable them me, who has to religious eduction, are holding up the Old Testament laws to justify the brutal inhumane laws because they find some stupid story falsely attributed to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) telling them that he approve of such punishment.

The adultery punishment is simple and easy which is for both men and women. The following verse very clearly define the punishment for adultery.

24:2 The woman and the man guilty of adultery or fornication,- flog each of them with a hundred stripes: Let not compassion move you in their case, in a matter prescribed by Allah, if ye believe in Allah and the Last Day: and let a party of the Believers witness their punishment. Qur’an.

These Mullahs who wanted to kill someone who has commited adultery are actually following Old Testament.

Deuteronomy.

Death Punishment for Adultery.
22.20 But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel, (unmarried women)

22.21 then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father’s house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die, because she hath wrought folly in Israel, to play the whore in her father’s house; so shalt thou put evil away from among you.

22.23 If a damsel who is a virgin be betrothed unto a husband, and a man find her in the city and lie with her,

22.24 then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall stone them with stones, that they die — the damsel, because she cried not, being in the city, and the man, because he hath humbled his neighbor’s wife; so thou shalt put away evil from among you.

Man who rape a women must die.
22.25 But if a man find a betrothed damsel in the field, and the man force her and lie with her, then the man only that lay with her shall die.
Death punishment for adultery.

22″If a man be found lying with a woman married to a husband, then they shall both of them die, both the man that lay with the woman and the woman; so shalt thou put away evil from Israel.
22.23 If a damsel who is a virgin be betrothed unto a husband, and a man find her in the city and lie with her,

22.24 then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall stone them with stones, that they die — the damsel, because she cried not, being in the city, and the man, because he hath humbled his neighbor’s wife; so thou shalt put away evil from among you.
Man who rape a women must die.

22.25 But if a man find a betrothed damsel in the field, and the man force her and lie with her, then the man only that lay with her shall die.

Musharaff is trying to change the laws which are actually Un Islamic and the biggest opposition he is facing is from these idiots who control the majority of population who has no knowledge of Qur’an. The change is difficult to come until people get the education of their own religion.
