Pakistan: When It Comes To Rape Cases, Islamic Law Is In, DNA Evidence Is Out


Who cares what irrefutable DNA evidence says. The prophet Mohammed said that women are dumb, inferior and immoral. And that’s the law of the land …

Hadith, Bukhari 6:301, “[Muhammad] said, ‘Is not the evidence of two women equal to the witness of one man?’ They replied in the affirmative. He said, ‘This is the deficiency in her intelligence.’”

Qur’an Sura 4:34a, “Men have authority over women because [Allah] has made the one superior to the other …”

Hadith, Sahih AlBukhari 5196, “[Muhammad said] When I stood on the door of hell, I saw most of its inhabitants were women”

Zeenews – “Lahore: Pakistan’s top human rights watchdog on Friday expressed ‘alarm and disappointment’ over a declaration by the Council of Islamic Ideology that DNA tests are not acceptable as primary evidence in determining rape cases.

The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan described the Council’s decision as ‘regressive’ and ‘unkind to rape victims’.

In a statement, the Commission said: ‘HRCP wants to unequivocally state that the latest pronouncement of the CII is regressive, brings no credit to this body and certainly not to the country, but most important of all it is exceptionally insensitive and unkind to rape victims.’

Rape is a ‘horrendous crime, which is far too common in Pakistan’, HRCP said. ‘Poor investigation methods and reluctance of witnesses to come forward out of fear mean that the balance is tilted in favour of the rapist as it is. In these circumstances, it would be foolish to not depend on all the evidence that is available, especially something as incontrovertible as DNA test results,’ the statement said.

‘Rather than benefiting from scientific advances through DNA tests, which have proven to be an accurate method for identification, CII suggests discarding that without any prudent reason,’ it said.

The Council of Islamic Ideology, a constitutional body that advises the Pakistan government, announced on Wednesday that DNA tests cannot be used as primary evidence in rape cases.” Read more.
