Speaking at a private TV channel, Prime Minister Imran Khan called for chemically castrating the sex offenders. He was talking in reference to the motorway robbery and gang-rape case and Marwah case.
“It [rape] should be graded like murder, first degree, and second degree,” he said, adding that “Chemical castration should take place. I have been reading up on it, it happens in many countries.”
He said that when he became the prime minister, he was shocked to receive a briefing from IG Islamabad who told him that sex crimes were on the rise against women and children.
Citing the example of foreign countries, he stated that in foreign countries pedophiles are properly registered and tracked down by the governments. He further added that the government could also deal with rapists and sexual abusers are by handing them exemplary punishments.
“They should be hanged on streets,” he said. However, he maintained that the government later came to know that being an accord of the Generalized Scheme of Preferences (GSP) status by the European Union the government cannot practice the action of public hangings as it would not be acceptable globally.
New Delhi has become rape capital of the World:
Talking about the capital city of the neighboring state India, khan said it has become the rape capital of the world due to the indecent content the country portrays through its movies.
“World history tells when vulgarity increases in the society, two things happen: sex crimes increase and the family system breaks down,” the prime minister said. He highlighted that it is not only the responsibility of law enforcement agencies to fight against sexual crimes in society, but rather the entire society should play its role to fight this menace of sex crimes.
Khan also said that he had pushed hard for Ertugrul to be aired in Pakistan as he wanted to prove that shows based on the Islamic Family system could be popular in the country as well.
