In November 2006, Pakistan’s military ruler steamrolled the Protection of Women Bill 2006 into law claiming to end injustices against women. It was promptly rubber stamped by the National Assembly. In reality, this bill makes it much more difficult to punish crimes against women and provides all kinds of protection to rapists and fornicators. In this blatant attempt to make Pakistan safe for rapists, one can see the true face of “Enlightened Islam” that General Musharraf has been tasked to introduce in Pakistan.
The account is important not just for the people of Pakistan; Muslim women everywhere can expect similar treatment from their “moderate” rulers.
