ISLAMABAD (HRNW) – The National Assembly approved a resolution seeking the death penalty for child rapists.
According to details, the resolution was tabled by Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Ali Muhammad Khan.
Member of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Raja Pervez Ashraf opposed the resolution, saying that increasing sentences would not help in reducing the crime. Pakistan cannot implement this law of United Nations (UN), he went on to say.
