Women's Protection Bill

After the passage of Women's Protection Bill from the lower house of the Parliament, National Assembly, the upper house (Senate) also cleared the Bill. A landmark reform in the infamous Hudood Ordinance of military dictator Ziaull Haq through which women were exploited.

The religious opposition is raising a lot of hue and cry against the passage of this bill terming it against Islam and Quran. But then.. thats what clergy do when their power is threatened. The custodians of Islam are trying everything to exploit the religious sentiment and promote their interest.

What I find most interesting is that they say things are totally opposite to Quran and still maintain that it is from Quran what they are saying!

Quran 3:78 And lo! there is a party of them who distort the Scripture with their tongues, that ye may think that what they say is from the Scripture, when it is not from the Scripture. And they say: It is from Allah, when it is not from Allah; and they speak a lie concerning Allah knowingly.

I'll allude to this more in my next post.
