Anti-carporal bill will be tabled soon

Federal Minister for Human Rights Dr. Shireen Mazari in a bid to promote possible measures of protection and promotion of children rights has presented ‘anti-corporal punishment bill’ in the Parliament and hopefully would be approved soon. According to a source in Ministry of Human Rights , the bill aims at regulating child rights and human rights.
He said that the ministry was also formulating new legislation on domestic workers to stop the violation of the children’s rights. In her tweet at the social media networking portal Twitter, Shireen Mazari said,”It is simply unacceptable and our anti-corporal punishment bill has been ready for over a month but bureaucratic procedures take longer to complete than writing a bill as I discovered. Prime Minister Imran Khan has directed that these procedures be rationalized and shortened.”—APP
