Sexual exploitation of women and nuns, pedophiles and all other sorts of sexual crimes of Tamilanadu not considered properly by the woman and social activists!

IE Aruldass imprisonment 2019

Why certain sex crimes are suppressed, not reported and nottaken into consideration by researchers?: The rape of children (below 18 years), sexual exploitation of women and nuns, pedophiles and all other sorts of sexual crimes have been going on increase, yet, the whole lot of educated, elite and even researchers, historians, women activists and others do not discuss, do not bring the cases into their analysis, as if nothing happened in India[1]. Just in February 2019, when South Indian History Congress was held in Hyderabad, such trend is noted. G. J. Sudhakar delved upon the topic, “Child rights in India – A Historical perspective,” in an abstract way theoretically without touching upon the rights of Indian children violated in India for the last 50 years by the foreigners and Christian missionaries under “pedophile,” sex-tourism and categories. Though, he went on mentioning Acts, he did not whisper about the Supreme Court judgments[2] where foreign and missionary were arrested and even sent to jail. The judgment cited has been illustrative and there have been many cases. Even a general newspaper reader has been seized of such issues, as thousands of such pedophile cases are reported in the newspapers and TV reports[3]. Therefore, it is surprising that the professors had decided not to mention.

Why pedophile crimes are suppressed?: To cite a media report[4], “According to the National Crime Records Bureau a total of 12,363 cases of child rape were reported in the country during 2013 as compared to 8,541 in 2012 accounting for an increase of 44.7%. The maximum child rape cases were reported in Madhya Pradesh (2,112 cases) followed by Maharashtra (1,546 cases) and Uttar Pradesh (1,381 cases). These three states together accounted for 40.8% of the total child rape cases reported in the country. A 2007 WCD study found that more than half (53%) of the children interviewed said that they had been subjected to one or more forms of sexual abuse. Over 20% of those interviewed said they were subjected to severe forms of abuse. Of those who said they were sexually abused, 57% were boys”.

Mahila court sentenced the rapists and  pimps: The Cuddalore District Mahila Court / court sessions judge D Lingeswaran on 07-01-2019, Monday awarded 30-year jail term to a CSI church priest involved in the horrifying Tittakudi rape case of 2014, involving two minor girls from the district and trafficking gangs from across the State[5]. Nine others were sentenced to life imprisonment[6]. The court found 16 of the 17 accused guilty of abduction, sexual assault and other charges. Priest Aruldoss, who sexually assaulted the girls, was also slapped with a fine of Rs 5 lakh. Anbazhagan, the gang’s kingpin from Salem was sentenced to life in prison and fined Rs 3.21 lakh. Sridhar, the driver who took the children to different places, was sentenced to two life terms and fined Rs 4.4 lakh. They were sentenced to different jail terms ranging from double rigorous life terms to one-year rigorous imprisonment after holding them guilty of crimes including kidnapping two minor girls, illegally confining them, selling them to gangs involved in prostitution, sexually assaulting them and forcing them to indulge in flesh trade.

Sex racket started at Idli shop and ended with CSI pastor: On June 8, 2014, two minor girls studying in Class 8 and 9 in a government higher secondary school in Thittakudi went missing[7]. After searching everywhere, their parents registered a police complaint on June 11 to recover their kids soon[8]. After an in-depth investigation, police rescued the two girls from a sex broker identified as Satheesh in Vadalur area and found that they were assaulted sexually and forced into prostitution by Pastor Aruldoss and his associates. In other words, the CSI pastor was actively engaged in such racet, exploiting the poverty of the girls. The case dates back to 2014, when a 13-year-old girl from Tittakudi was befriended by Tamilarasi, who used to run an idli shop. The woman then coerced the girl into having sexual intercourse with her husband and other men. The child was later told that she would be let off if she brought another girl to them. The child then brought another victim, a 14-year-old girl from the neighborhood, to the woman. Both girls were sexually assaulted by the men. It is unbelievable that one girl would simple have sex with many and she would bring another girl for her release. As facts are suppressed, the sex trade carried on is suppressed. In the months that followed, they were trafficked to various places in the State including Salem, Panruti, Vadalur, Virudachalam and Ulundurpet and were sexually assaulted by several men. Police investigation found that the two children had been forced to watch pornography and had been sexually assaulted by several men including priest Aruldoss[9]. The father of one of the girls filed a missing complaint with Tittakudi police in July 2014. Meanwhile, the children managed to escape and reached Tittakudi[10].

The judge imposed punishment according to their gravity of crime: Actually, these sex criminals should not be shown any mercy at all, as they have soiled dozens of lives of young girls.  When Pollachi sexual crime was carried on in Hi-tech manner, this has been done at village level in crude manner. Cuddalore mahila court sessions judge D Lingeswaran imposed more than Rs 25 lakh penalty on them after holding them guilty under various sections of Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (Pocso) Act, 2012[11]. Seventeen people were arrested in connection with the case but Tamilarasi and her husband Satheesh have been absconding. Of the other five convicts, four were awarded 20-year jail time while one convict got 10-year imprisonment. Punishment for other accused[12]:

  • Anandaraj – Four life terms and a fine of Rs 2.1 lakh
  • Selvaraj – Three life terms and fine of Rs 30,000
  • Mohan Raj and Mathivanan – Two life terms each and fine of Rs 2 lakh
  • Fathima – Two life terms and a fine of Rs 4.4 lakh
  • Kala alias Mekala, and Lakshmi – Two life terms and a fine of Rs 4.2lakh
  • Amudha – ten years in jail and fine of Rs 21,000

Punishment to all: Sridhar – to undergo double rigorous life terms for forcing the two minor girls into prostitution, two 10 years rigorous imprisonment for kidnapping them, another two 10 years rigorous imprisonment for selling them to gangs involved in prostitution and two one-year rigorous imprisonment for illegally confining them. He also slapped penalties to a tune of Rs 4.22 lakh each on them. The judge sentenced two men – Anantharaj and Balasubramanian – to double rigorous life terms for sexually assaulting the minor girls and another double rigorous life terms for forcing them into prostitution and a 10-year rigorous jail term for kidnapping the minor girls besides imposing a fine of Rs 4.1 lakh on them[13]. He sentenced two men – Mohanraj and Mathivanan – to undergo double rigorous life terms for sexually assaulting the minor girls and imposed Rs 2 lakh fine on them. Selvaraj was sentenced to undergo rigorous life imprisonment for the same crime, besides double rigorous life terms for forcing the girls into prostitution, two 10-year rigorous imprisonment for kidnapping them and two 10-years rigorous imprisonment for selling them to pimps[14]. However, it has to be noted as to whether they would go o jail or appeal again.

An Arabic teacher / moulvi / madrassa teacher arrested for sexploiting children in Hyderabad – why Mohammedans indulge in such practices ? (2)

Madrassa teacher held - DC - 04-05-2018

Voyeurism, molestation, assault are all part of the sex crimes: action taken by the police: Inspector General (Women Safety), Swati Lakra, welcomed the Centre’s decision but urged for efficient investigation and fast-tracking of court procedures. “Like our dedicated POCSO court in Hyderabad, we will soon have courts all across the State. With all amenities and keen monitoring, better results can be achieved in districts too,” she said. Meanwhile, Sunitha Krishnan, activist and founder of Prajwala, set up for the rehabilitation of rape and trafficked victims, said that though she is not against the move of the Centre, the death penalty or any other serious action does not solve the problem. She pointed out that there has been no speedy execution of justice for years. “I have around 100 victims aged between 3-10 years whose cases have to tried under POCSO Act, but none of them have been started yet. There in no closure in terms of justice, despite the Act mandating that they have to be over within a year,” she said. Once there is speedy justice, where for example, in 10 cases, all 10 are awarded punishment, it will act as a deterrence mechanism to prevent rapes, she added. She also suggested that rapes aren’t the only crimes. Voyeurism, molestation, assault are all part of the sex crimes and it is important that there are solutions for this too. Krishnan, for a long time, has been advocating the creation of sex offenders registry and sex offenders support programme. While the former, is to name and shame offenders, list them on public domain which will alert the public while creating a fear among those committing crimes, the latter will help offenders.

Hyderabad Madrassa pedophile- Islamic centre

690 cases of child rape in Telangana: NCRB: As per the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) data-2016, released in December 2017, Telangana State has reported as many as 690 cases of child rape (under section 4 and 6 of POCSO Act and Section 376 IPC) and 189 cases of sexual assaults on children (under section 8 & 10 of POCSO and section 354 of IPC). Similarly, figures for overall POCSO cases from that year reveals as many as 1158 incidents involving 1159 victims. Where as, figures for total crime against children (under POCSO, IPC, and other special and local laws) reveals 2900 incidents involving 3,242 victims. However, during the same period, only 277 persons were remanded to judicial custody and 75 were convicted by court with respect to rape cases. Here, for research purposes or otherwise, except, statistical figures, the background of the crimes, involved criminals and induced factors to commit such crimes are not reported or known. Considering the pattern of “child-abuse” by the Christian Mohammedan  orphanages, homes and madrassas, there is reason to believe that they – child related sexual abuses, child-raping and pedophile crimes – are connected with religious dogmas.

Hyderabad Madrassa incidence disgraceful- DC-- 22-04-2018

Hyderabad Madrasa incident ‘highly disgraceful’: Religious scholars and rectors of various Islamic seminaries in the city have termed the incident of sexual abuse of students by a madrasa teacher as “highly disgraceful”[1]. As the Mohammedan children are affected psychologically, psycho-somatically and physically, they have now realized that if the do not prevent such pedophile and children-raping, their future would be collapsed. They said that they will soon hold a meeting to discuss ways to prevent such incidents which are degrading the levels of the Islamic institutions[2]. It is a positive sign from the Mohammedan clerics to reassess and determine what has been wrong with their “Islamic institutions,” as pointed out. Hafeez Mohd Waheed, of Islamic Madrasa Board, blames the teachers who are mostly from Uttar Pradesh and Bihar for such shameful incidents. “In most of the incidents we had found the teachers from these States are involved. Most of the local institutions do not hire them. We had already sent an advisory to the institutions asking them to keep a tab on the activities in their institutions especially when there are boarders. Counselling sessions for the students are also held,” he explained. Pedophile and child-rape cases cannot be restricted to any state or area but the mindset of the people involved. As in Andhra, including Telengana, there have been hundreds of such cases reported and un-reported.

Madrassa teacher held - Mumbai Mirror - 04-05-2018

2,000 Islamic schools in Telangana State – 700 of them are located in and around Hyderabad, with 20,000 students studying: There are about 2,000 Islamic schools across Telangana State and about 700 of them are located in and around the city. About 20,000 students are studying in the institutions located in the city. Mufti Mastan Ali, who runs an Islamic seminary said that such incidents are condemnable and neither the management of the madrasa nor the accused’s family should come forward to arrange legal help for the accused person.  “Black sheeps are there in every community but the teachers hold a respectful position in the society. It is shameful to know that such incidents are occurring in the institutions,” he said. Ilyas Shamshi, a social worker and religious scholar said that the madrasas should have a parent-teacher committee like the regular schools.  “If such committees are formed at the institution level, the parents will also know the affairs in the institutions. The madrasas should also form a team of counsellors to go and meet the students especially the boarders who are from other states,” he said. Though, the “legacy issues” are being discussed, debated and contested by the divided states of Andhra and Telengana, in this issue, the moulvis coming from North-Indian states are blamed.

Hyderabad Mus;im population increases- DC-- 16-05-2017

Muslim population has been increasing in the Telengana state[3]: The growth rate of Muslim population is increasing and the Hindu population is declining In Telangana state. In one decade, Muslims population grew from 12.4 per cent (38,53,213) of the population in Telangana in 2001 to 12.7 per cent forming a population of 44,64,699 in 2011 — an addition of 6.11 lakh. Hindu population has marginally declined from 85.94 per cent at total of 2,66,30,949 in 2001 to 85.1 per cent at a total of 2,99,48,451 during the same period. The population, however, registered an increase in absolute numbers. The population of Christians also increased marginally in the state. According to the Telangana Social Development Report- 2017, about half of the total population of Muslims in the state is residing in Hyderabad district. Of the 44.65 lakh Muslims in Telangana, 17.13 lakh live in the Hyderabad district, constituting 43.5 per cent of the total Muslim population in the state. The Christians population growth was from 1.24 per cent to 1.3 per cent, taking the numbers from 3,84,373 to 4.47,124. Christians in Telangana are largely concentrated in the two districts — Hyderabad and Ranga Reddy. In the other districts where Christians have relatively higher presence are Medak, Nalgonda and Warangal. The percentage of urban population among Hindus is 32.6 per cent whereas the corresponding figure for Muslims is 74.6 per cent. Urban ratio of Christians in Telangana has increased from 63.1 per cent in 2001 to 69 per cent in 2011. Meanwhile at the national level, Muslim population is growing slower than it had in the previous decades and its growth rate has slowed more significantly than that of the Hindu population according to the 2011 census. The Muslim population still grows at a faster rate than the Hindu population, but the gap between the two growth rates is narrowing fast. India has 966.3 million Hindus, who make up 79.8 per cent of its population, and 172.2 million Musl-ims, who make up 14.23 per cent. Among the other minorities, Christians make up 2.3 per cent of the population and Sikhs 1.72 per cent. The data on Population by Religious Communities, as in Census 2011, showed that between 2001 and 2011, the Hindu population in India grew by 16.76 per cent, while that of the Muslims grew by 24.6 per cent[4].

Islamic pephile based on theology

Why and how the Mohammedan clergy indulged in child-raping etc?: The pedophile and children raping cases have been found characteristically and mostly among the Mohammedan and Christian clergy, teachers and other religious heads. However, only few come out with the fact that their scriptures and social snobbery involve them in sexual exploitation. Their scriptures describe, promote and recommend all sorts of rape, sodomy, and various types of sexual activities, inter-courses and treatment also. The medieval literature has been imbibed and obsessed with such excessive lewd, vulgar and bawdy sexual narratives. Keeping a “beautiful boy” by side has been considered as “hallmark” of theological and poetic fantasy. LGBTQ accounts have been connected with most of the rulers, warriors and slaves also. Invariably, a slave has to be a beautiful boy, or girl or woman or any LGBTQ. While the women were shared and passed on with the “hierarchical sexual exploitation,” the “beautiful boys” were kept with jealous without passing on. Thus, the child-raping has become part of the Mohammedan sexual ecstasy books.  The poetry, paintings and harems made them sexploitive leading to many complications. A myth was also created that the more a person rapes or have sexual relation with children, the more his sexual vigour grow for complete satisfaction. The sexy, porn and such type literature produced during the medieval period of Islamic world has been proof for this. Of course, the fighters / Jihadis require sex after every assignment, just like taking food.

Isam and pedophile-1400 years

Secular state has to follow secular principles in containing crimes: As Islamic jurisprudence provides enough and justifies such marital exemption, exception and exploitation, the clergy had been so happy to adjudicate such cases. The more the caeses he receives, the more he rest he rquires to adjudicate futher. For quick disposal, he may have to use deputy-categories. However, in moder times, now, such sexploitations continue, then, every sane person of civil society has to analyze it caefully and find out the truth. They cannot be allowed to be in “secular stupor” or paid-trance and lay-coma forgetting the facts. As the journalist studies and institutions have been under the control of secular, Marxist, Christian, Mohammedan categories, they would be held resonsible, if they still continue to indulge in propaganda, in reporting such serious cases in this way as piinted out here and as well as in other blogs.

Why Christian schools exceed the limits of education, resort to psychological methods and indulge in sexual harassments, molestations and rapes?

May 1, 2018

Why Christian schools exceed the limits of education, resort to psychological methods and indulge in sexual harassments, molestations and rapes?

Georgris Britto arrested, Jaipur catholic priest-School

Why more and more Christian religious heads involve in sexual crimes?: The Christian indulgences in sexual harassments, molestations and even rapes have been increasing and become order of the day, not only throughout the world, but also in India. Every day, news is coming about the involvement of Christian cardinal, bishop, pastor, priest and so on in the violations of Acts and rules of the land. Initially, they have been adjusting and compromising within the church and hence suppressing many such incidences do not come out and get published in the media. But, later, slowly, the violations exceeded limits and such contraventions warranted legal action, adjudication and persecution. Though, the church-related crimes have been increasing, the responsible religious heads have been trying to suppress, instead of bringing discipline in the church. The Jaipur sexual harassment issue has not been drawn attention of the media, though, much hue and cry has been made out for other sexual crimes. In Tamil media, virtually, there has not been no whisper is made about the issue.

Britto arrested, Jaipur catholic priest

Georgish Britto surrendered or tried to ran away hiding?: A Catholic priest has been sent to a jail in Rajasthan for allegedly sending an obscene message to a teenage girl student of his school. In one of the messages, the accused wrote – ‘Your husband is always waiting for you’. Police on April 20, 2018 arrested Father Georgish Britto, vice principal of St Anselm School in Alwar[1]. A case was registered against him two days earlier for texting the 15-year-old ninth grader[2]. He was arrested when he went to “surrender” to the police, Father Edward Oliveira, vicar general of Jaipur diocese, told Matters India on April 23, 2018. The school is managed by the diocese of Jaipur. Alwar is some 160 km northeast of Jaipur, the state capital and the diocesan headquarters. According to other reports, the accused vice principal fled to Dausa in a bus after he came to know about the police case[3]. He called up his friend in Alwar from Dausa. The police traced the call and a team was immediately rushed to Dausa and arrested from Lalsot Road[4]. He was brought to Alwar where he is being interrogated. Sources said that the man was “planning to flee” to his native village via Jaipur. So the catholic priest wanted to “surrender” to the police or “planning to flee” to his native village has to be decided by the God!

Britto arrested, Jaipur priest

Why Georgish Britto was sending obscene messages and videos?: On Wednesday [18-04-2018], there was a huge drama at the school when the girl’s parents accompanied by members of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad and the Bajrang Dal protested against the school’s vice principal. Following this, senior police officials arrived at the school to pacify the protesters[5]. The girl’s family alleged that not only was the vice principal sending their daughter obscene messages and videos from the past few days, but was also forcing her to change her religion[6]. Local political leaders including MLA Banwari Lal Singhal also arrived at the school to take stock of the situation[7]. The protesting group alleged that the vice principal was hiding somewhere in the school and police is deliberately not arresting him[8]. Paul, the principal of the school, however, said that he was unaware about the vice principal’s activities. After the high-octane drama, IPS Anil Beniwal reached the spot and asked the girl’s father to report the matter. “The vice principal has been booked under the POSCO Act and search is on to find him,” Beniwal said. The girl had not complained about the obscene messages earlier, obviously afraid of the school authorities.

Georgris Britto arrested, by Jaipur police

Georgish Britto – can he capable of giving counselling to the girl?: According to the Times of India, the administration called in additional forces to keep the situation under control. While the protestors argued with the cops; the parents accused the school of shielding their teacher. Father Oliveira said the girl’s brother beat Father Britto on April 20, 2018. The vicar general said Father Britto, who was ordained hardly a year ago, had counseled the girl’s family to sort out some domestic problems. How can he indulge in such activities of counselling the girl is intriguing. The girl’s elder brother had also studied in the same school. The girl apparently developed some “infatuation” toward the young priest and used her father’s mobile to message him at night after her father went to sleep, the vicar general explained. This type of counter accusation by the Church and clergy expose their ugliest side of sexual harassment that has been going on in many Christian schools. However, the father caught the girl chatting with the priest and complained to the police. So the fact has been more clear than the Christian attempts of suppressimg the facts, in spite of their position, status etc.

Oswald Lewis letter dated 24-04-2018

In one of the messages, the accused wrote – ‘Your husband is always waiting for you’: This cleararly exposed his non-educative, non-catholic and indiscipline attitude and sexual mindset of the priest. Ironically, this has been the characteristic of the Christian church and clergy in India and the world also. Father Britto was arrested under Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act of 2012, a stringent law to end abuses of minors[9]. Father Oliveira said the groups had accused the vice principal of trying to convert the girl and fondling her, besides sending lewd messages[10]. The vicar general said the junior priest had admitted that he only sent the message to the girl but denied other charges. “He admitted what he had done was imprudent and wrong. What has happened is very sad,” he added. The school authorities reportedly claimed that the student had never complained about such messages. But, the school authorities have not been so naïve to leave the girl, particularly, when she complained to the police. Father Oliveira said the accused priest had to remain in jail until May 5, 2018. “We can move for bail only after that,” he added.

Georgris Britto arrested, Jaipur bishop- Oswald Lewis

The arrogant attitude of the Church: Here, also, evidently, the national media though silent, the few covered the incidence tried to dub the excessive reaction of the so-called “right-wing” groups. Ironically, the letter of Oswald J. Lewis dated 24-04-2018 addressed to “Clergy, Religious & Laity, and Catholic Diocese of Jaipur” has been intriguing and shocking.  “In times of trial, uncertainties, and hardships we have only one source of consolation – Jesus the Good Shepherd. We turn to him in prayer. I hereby request you to fast and pray that we may tide over this situation and that Fr. Georgish Britto may have the strength and courage to bear the cross that the Lord has given him. Do pray for Paul Pulikal too that he be guided and strengthened by the Holy Spirit. Thanking you for your understanding of the situation sympathetically and praying for us.” This clearly proves that the Christian heads have not regretted, apologized and repented for the sinful crimes and criminal sins committed, but with theological arrogance, tried to justify such heinous sexual crimes, coolly forgetting the affected girls and women of India.

Sex abuse- church cover up-

In secular state, crimes cannot be justified with theology: Crime is a crime and it has to be dealt with according to the law of the land, but, when it is justified, vindicated and defended based on religion, theology and other illegal means, then, there is a reason to believe that the offenders, wrongdoers and criminals are protected. Then, as a pattern is noted in such perpetrated crimes for the last 50 years, it is nothing but organized crime carried on under the guise of religion by a particular group or believers. When the country is secular, the criminals cannot be treated differently, just because, he is a Christian and his theology helps him to escape from crimes committed. But, the Bishop’s letter quoted above clearly proves that the Christians have such extraneous mysticism, illegal spirituality and illegitimate holiness means to cover up crimes of all sorts by divine theology. This is very dangerous in a secular state, democratic polity and civil society and therefore, every citizen of India has right to expose such heinous ideology, atrocious philosophy and dreadful dogma paraded as acceptable religion and bring the criminals to court for prosecution and punishment.

Islamic Republic of Pakistan has let down women again by surrendering to the fundamentalists!

Islamic Republic of Pakistan has let down women again by surrendering to the fundamentalists!

Vani-Swara or Watta Satta

Girls can be excanged for debts, debt recovery and other proceedings: Islamic Republic of Pakistan (hereinafter mentioned as IRP) has been notorious for pedophile activities carried on in Madrasas by Mohammedan clerics. Though, many reports came, arrests made, but, prosecutions have been limited and the involved maulanas, kajis and Mullahs escaped. While the boys are exploited in this way, the girl-children are sexploited in a different way, under the guise of “marriages”. Child marriage in Pakistan is connected with tradition, culture, and customary practices. It sometimes involves the transfer of money, settlement of debts or exchange of daughters (Vani/Swara or Watta Satta) sanctioned by  a Jirga or Panchayat (council of elders from the community)[1]. It is estimated that 21% of girls in Pakistan are married before the age of 18. When the question of “non-Muslims” come, the “marriages” become atrocious, horrible and ending with prostitution, as Islamic law can be applicable for such activities under mutah and other forms of marriages. Thus, by and large the Islamic law has been used only to sexploit the girls and women.

IRP obligation to end child marriage and legislations stopped by the clerics: As awareness is created and educated women have started questioning such practices, IRP has pledged to end child marriage by 2030 as part of a global initiative. Based on this, IRP gets many funds and monetary packages from the global organizations. Yet, the legislations brought to curtail, ban and stop the Child marriages and pedophile activities have been stopped by the Mohammedan clerics under the pretext of Quran, Hadis and Shariat. In other words, the funds received for the purpose have not been producing desired effect, instead, opposite results show the other-way happenings there. According to a Gallup survey released in October 2017, approximately 7.3 million people in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan were married before the age of 16, and an additional 15.5 million Pakistanis got married before they were 18. Gallup calls this “child marriage” for its survey purposes[2]. The observation made, “Child brides often drop out of school and become pregnant, and these early pregnancies have a greater risk of ending in maternal or infant death,……….Child brides are also at greater risk of sexual violence, abuse, social isolation and exploitation.” said Gallup[3].

The bills were stalled in 2014, 2016 and so on: A bid to ban child marriage in Pakistan utterly failed, after the Council of Islamic Ideology declared the legislation “anti-Islamic” and “blasphemous.”  The bill didn’t even move past the first stage in the legislative process, The Express Tribune reports[4]. It was almost immediately pulled by Pakistan Muslim League party’s Marvi Menon following condemnation from CII, whose job it is to advise the legislature on whether bills are compliant with Sharia law. In this case, the bill clearly violated Islamic law as tradition holds marriage as acceptable when a girl hits puberty[5]. Sheerani had opposed the proposed amendments, saying they were contrary to Islamic teachings and laws. “Parliament cannot create legislation that is against the teachings of the Holy Quran or Sunnah,” he had said while backing his arguments with relevant laws and a few references from the Holy Quran and Hadith. According to Islamic laws, marriage can be solemnised when a girl attains puberty, Sheerani claimed[6]. After CII’s declaration, a parliamentary committee rejected the legislation solely for religious reasons and Menon subsequently pulled the legislation. Existing legislation in Pakistan already violates Islamic law. The Child Marriage Restraint (Amendment) Act 2014 places the legal age of marriage at 16 for women, but the recent proposal attempted to move that age up to 18 and also included serious punishment for the common practice of child marriage. That punishment would have included prison for up to two years for anyone caught engaging in child marriage[7].

In May 2017 also, the National Assembly rejected the draft Child Marriage Restraint Act for the second time: Social and gender inequality, a desire to control women’s sexuality and protect family honour, economic hardship and lack of awareness of the harmful impact of child marriage are common driving factors[8]. Pakistan’s Child Marriage Restraint Act (CMRA) 1929 sets the legal age for marriage to 16 for women and 18 for men. In May 2017, the National Assembly rejected the draft Child Marriage Restraint Act for the second time. The proposal would have increased the legal age for marriage from 16 to 18 nationwide. In February 2017, the Parliament adopted an amendment to the Penal Code that would toughen punishment against child marriage. Offenders face a minimum of five years in prison and may serve up to 10 years. They also face a fine of up to 1 million rupees ($9,547). Thus, it appears that IRP and the fundamentalist have been playing trick with the UN and global organizations strategically, as if the have been introducing the Bills, but, only the fundamentalist clerics have been stopping it in the name of Allah and Quaran, that is not questionable by any Muslim.

Mohammedan clerics declare that girls can get married by 9 years or getting puberty, whichever is earlier: According to the organization Girls Not Brides, over 21 percent of the girls in Pakistan enter into marriage before the age of 18. CII Chairman Mohammad Khan Sheerani reiterated in 2014 that girls can be married at age nine, so long as puberty is apparent, adding that attempts to revisit the issue are pointless and unnecessary. “Parliament cannot create legislation that is against the teachings of the Holy Quran or Sunnah,” Sheerani said in 2014, according to The Express Tribune. CII was created in 1962 with the express purpose of advising parliament on Islamic law. CII is also known for calling to make DNA evidence inadmissible in rape cases as recently as 2013. What CII wanted instead is to bring back the old practice of bringing in four witnesses to support rape claims. With increasing immigration, the practice of child marriage has also spread to the West, raising alarm especially in the United Kingdom. According to data from the Home Office’s Forced Marriage Unit, there were 1,485 cases of child marriage in 2012. Another government report also foundchild marriage is increasing around the world, with the rate expected to climb to 14 million child marriages a year before 2020 hits.

Law Minister Zahid Hamid  accused of for “blasphemy” and fatwas issued: Law Minister Zahid Hamid had been accused by clerics of committing blasphemy due to a change in the wording of an oath taken by parliamentarians in the South Asian country. The protesters, led by Rizvi and other scholars, perceived the change in wording as representing a softening of the state’s position against members of the Ahmadi sect, who are not permitted to identify themselves as Muslims in Pakistan. The oath was hastily amended back to its original wording, but protesters held the capital under siege for weeks, demanding that Hamid resign from the cabinet. According to the agreement signed on Monday, the government will also make public an internal inquiry into how the wording of the parliamentary oath was changed. The Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) political party, led by Rizvi, has also agreed not to issue any religious edicts [fatwas] against Hamid.  Blasphemy is a sensitive issue in Pakistan, and certain forms of it can carry the death sentence. Increasingly, those accused of blasphemy have also been subjected to violent attacks by mobs and charged protesters. Since 1990, at least 73 people have been killed over alleged blasphemy, according to an Al Jazeera tally. They include those accused of blasphemy, members of their families, lawyers who have defended them and judges.

Zahid Hamid, Law Minister resigned[9]: Pakistan’s federal law minister has resigned, acceding to a key demand made by thousands of protesters who have blocked a major highway into the Pakistani capital for weeks, the state radio broadcaster reported. An agreement has been signed that would see the demonstrators in Islamabad and other cities disperse, Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal told the Islamabad High Court during a hearing on 17-11-2017, Monday, ending a weeks-long standoff that threatened to escalate into countrywide violence. “On the assurance of the Chief of Army Staff, we are calling off the sit-in,” Muslim scholar and protest leader Khadim Hussain Rizvi told a crowd of around 2,500 demonstrators in Islamabad on Monday, AFP news agency reported. The agreement would also see all protesters who were arrested during the sit-in, which began on November 8, be released within three days[10]. The government will also take responsibility for paying for any damage caused to both public and private property during the protest. An inquiry will also be ordered into a government security crackdown on Saturday which saw thousands of riot police fire tear gas, rubber bullets and water cannon in an attempt to disperse the protesters. Demonstrators fought back with stones, sticks and metal rods, and were able to beat back the authorities. At least five people were killed and more than 217 – mostly members of the security forces – wounded in those clashes.
