JUI-F too against torture on women: Fazl

MULTAN: Chief of Jamiat Ulma-e-Islam (JUI F) Maulana Fazalur Rehman said on Tuesday that they were also against torture on women but the recent bill of women protection was against the spirit of Islamic teachings and the constitution.

He was addressing a press conference at Jamia Kherul Madarass after condoling with Maulana Hanif Jalandhary over death of noted scholar Maulana Siddique here.

He said the bill should have been sent to the Council of Islamic Ideology (CII).

Fazl alleged that efforts were being made to push Ulema and religious seminaries to wall.

Speaking on the occasion, Nazim of Wafaqul Madarass Maulana Hanif Jalandhary said that they would oppose women protection bill.
