Punjab Women Protection bill against Quran and Sunnah: Fazl


LAHORE: Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam Fazl (JUI-F) Chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Saturday said Women Protection bill adopted by Punjab Assembly is against the teachings of Quran and Sunnah.


Speaking to media, he said Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has contacted him by telephone expressing his willingness to introduce amendment in the bill. “But, I have told him the issue has gone beyond amendment”.

Commenting on the role of National Accountability Bureau, he said the issue of the anti-corruption watchdog needs to be heeded if prime minister has questioned its performance.
