Even after the announcement of Prime Minister Imran Khan, the law to find rapists has not been passed in Pakistan. However, new laws have been passed to ensure that rapists get a speedy trial. The law says the Pakistani government will set up special courts across the country to expedite trials for rape and sexual assault. The target is to complete these trials within four months.

According to the report, those convicted of mass rape in Pakistan will be sentenced to death or life imprisonment. Rape of women and children is on the rise in the country. In this context, this strict law was passed. However, the proposal to castrate the body by applying chemicals to the body was rejected at the last minute.
The sentence was passed in December by an ordinance of the country’s president. But when it was raised in Parliament for enactment, it was not included. Prime Minister Imran Khan also said that he wanted to enact a law to expel rapists through the application of chemicals in the body.

The controversial two-finger test provision has been repealed under this Act. It has been announced that anti-rape crisis cells will be set up in various hospitals in Pakistan. There will be physical examination and legal aid to protect the dignity of women. The new law also increases the punishment for rape.
It is to be noted that various human rights organizations had raised objections on the issue of chemical application. The Islamic Council of Pakistan also objected. Human rights group Amnesty International has called for the perpetrators to be found guilty of rape instead of being punished. Although Poland, South Korea, the Czech Republic and some US states have similar laws.

“The Islamic Council of Ideology had objected to the punishment of chemical castration for rapists for being an un-Islamic practice, so we decided to remove it from the law,” Maleeka Bukhari, parliamentary secretary on law, told reporters Friday in Islamabad.

The council is a constitutional advisory body mandated to interpret and ensure all Pakistani laws are in line with Islam.

The new anti-rape law would allow for speedy convictions and severe sentences for perpetrators, including the death penalty. The legislation requires the government to establish special courts across Pakistan to try rape cases in secrecy and decide them “expeditiously, preferably within four months.”

Under the law, a nationwide register of sex offenders will also be maintained with the help of the National Database and Registration Authority. The identity of victims will be protected and special “anti-rape crisis cells” will be formed to conduct medical examinations of victims within hours of the crime.
