I should go out and burn my forensic chemistry degree and curse on the 4yrs I spent in university *sarcasm*
But I do literally feel like that at the moment... as all the knowledge in the world cannot stand infront of religious extremism, misogyny, ignorance and rape culture.
Such decisions are the precise reason men and especially men who lack basic knowledge like grade 12 science should not be throwing around decisions which undermines the life and experience of so many people.. the decision which is not just harmful but it essentially promotes rape culture and condones rape in the name of religion.
So this one and only council.. Council of Islamic Ideology.. is found only in Pakistan where they make moronic decisions.
Imagine that they are not only the biggest buffons of their time but they are the religious arrogant morons who would even have the decency to recognize their moronic mistake!
Pakistan's legal system on sexual assault is a prime example of systemic sexual violence. We have these moronic councils like CII, where they decide the fate of people.
These are the people who consider that for a woman to get "justice" in the land of pure, she needs to be humiliated and re-victimized in the most inhuman ways. And if she cannot find "4 male witnesses" who can testify to her agony than rape is basically adultery and she is suppose to rot in prison for that.
So the primary evidence for rape must come from 4 witnesses? Do you know how stupid that is? It's a license to rape!!!
MOST people might not know but we have indeed reached 2013; we are not in 620 AD!! Eye witnesses have been replaced with science for investigative purposes. We know use DNA not for just sexual assault cases but for other cases as well in forensic investigation.
The reason DNA trumped it because people (eye wintesses) lie science doesnt!

A paper by Dennis Ford, Ph.D and Mark Zaid, Esq. in 1993 titled Eyewitness Testimony, Memory, and Assassination Research. It sheds more light on the credibility of the method.
So the question is if we have so much information and knowledge out there, on what fucking basis CII produces such irresponsible statements???
Usually I never make the argument of honour but from their statement its seems that CII says Pakistani Muslim men are essentially beghairat who would witness rape & enjoy it rather than stop it thus justifying "4 male witnesses". I mean come to think of it, it is free rape porn for everyone at the end of the day.
In India, people are changing laws & pursuing laws to expedite
So in light of everything, CII, please stop embarassing all Pakistanis worldwide!!! We are not all Neanderthals who believe in the system of stone age. We are conscious, living, breathing, critical thinking human beings.
Try to enroll in grade 12 biology courses, it will tremendously help in your stunted knowledge about the world around you.
Last but not the least, to be a Muslim doesnt mean that I need to get rid of my gray matter!!
