Torture bill in NA

Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday said that he had spoken to interior ministry to expedite tabling our anti torture bill in National Assembly (NA). He also added that the “torture is unacceptable in a civilized democratic society”.

Taking to his Twitter handle, PM Imran wrote, “I have asked Interior Ministry to expedite tabling our anti torture bill in National Assembly. Torture is unacceptable in a civilized democratic society & goes against the spirit of Islam, our constitution & our international legal commitment.”

The premier criticized the practice of torturing, stating that it “goes against the spirit of Islam, our constitution & our international legal commitments”.

Earlier in January, the Ministry of Human Rights said it would present a bill against torture.

Dr. Shireen Mazari had expressed the federal government’s commitment to make the police citizen-centric and gender sensitive by resolving legislative, infrastructural and attitudinal challenges of the police.

She had also committed to depoliticize the police by introducing a merit-based system and a modern police law replacing 157 years old colonial law of 1861.
