Rather sick scenes were enacted in the Pakistani assembly recently when the controversial and out right stupid Hudood law was being modified. The Hudood ordinance was brought out by General Zia ul Haq and were aimed at the general islamisation of the Pakistani society. Crazy features in the law include branding all sex outside marriage as criminal. But you expect organized religion to be against sanity and the clerics to oppose all forms of human enjoyment.

One of the most absurd clauses in the law is that in order to confirm that a woman was raped atleast four men must have been enjoying the show and all four must testify in court and in case the woman failed to produce the four witnesses she herself was branded as a criminal. Now you cannot possibly imagine any right thinking individual to oppose a law as draconian as that but the MMA managed to surprise me by offering to resign from all the houses of parliament. According to the esteemed members of the MMA repealing this law would lead to free sex trade. My stinking foot it will!

Well here is an example to prove it all:
The court introduced the new norm on the petition of a woman who lodged a report, on June 4, 1997, alleging that she was raped at gunpoint by Jamroze, her neighbour, who threatened to kill her if she reported the incident to the authorities.

Both were charged under Section 10(2) of the ordinance at the trial for committing adultery: sentencing the female accused to five years RI with a fine of rupees 10,000. Jamroze however was sentenced to ten years RI with a fine of rupees 20,000.
