Institutions paralyzed due to political interference: Shahid


Observer Report


Former President ICCI Shahid Rasheed Butt on Sunday said the government has lost its writ across Pakistan while institutions have paralyzed due to increasing political interference.
In a statement issued on Sunday, he said that corruption, incompetence and inefficiency rules in police and other important departments stoking crimes, violence and abuse.
Shahid Rasheed Butt said that the government has failed to provide security to masses, especially vulnerable children and women while the police seem to be more interested in defending criminals than masses.
Demanding steps against the increased incidence of sexual violence in Pakistan, the former President ICCI said that rape and gang rape cases have reached to new heights due to policy of promotion of obscenity, nudity and vulgarity.
The government is less interested in censoring the internet for censoring pornography and more interested in silencing nonconforming voices, he maintained.
Shahid Rasheed added that PTI, PPP and PML-N played a central role blocking an amendment in Zainab Alert Bill seeking death sentence to rapists that indicate their interest in the welfare of masses.
He noted that only Islamic punishments could stop sexual violence in Pakistan so that women can feel safe in their own country but the government, as well as the main opposition parties, would never allow it to happen.
