The Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) concluded their 192nd meeting on Thursday with the ruling that women are un-Islamic and that their mere existence contradicted Sharia and the will of Allah. As the meeting concluded CII Chairman Maulana Muhammad Khan Shirani noted that women by existing defied the laws of nature, and to protect Islam and the Sharia women should be forced to stop existing as soon as possible. The announcement comes a couple of days after CII’s 191st meeting where they dubbed laws related to minimum marriage age to be un-Islamic.

After declaring women to be un-Islamic, Shirani explained that there were actually two kinds of women – haraam and makrooh. “We can divide all women in the world into two distinct categories: those who are haraam and those who are makrooh. Now the difference between haraam and makrooh is that the former is categorically forbidden while the latter is really really disliked,” Shirani said.

Pakistan and most of the Muslim-majority Asian countries have bizarre charters, allowing communities to form Shariah Councils on village level, upwards.. These mostly-tribal councils have no coordination or authorization, yet federal governments would listen to them in domestic issues, and would accept their penal verdicts..

Remember Pakistani Mukhtaran; who had been publicly “Raped” by a council verdict.. In another incident in Indonesia, a council banned women “Fart” while standing..!!!!
Regretfully, this undermines the “urban” efforts to modernize their countries.. No wonder that religious teaching grows extremism or formal one grows secularism.. i.e., British MP “Sajjed” who never been “Sajjed”..!

The Pakistani Council of Islamic Ideology is a “freak” legal body, which insists on “Salafi” doctrines.. It might be leaked news, yet matches their views..

    Farzana Parveen..
    A landmark in Pakistani Civil Rights..
    I guess an earthquake is approaching to both traditional mindset and outdated moralities that hinder the human development..
    In front of High Court, idle police officers and careless …audience..
    They used to relate honor killing to Islam, yet It is proven a historical tradition beyond any faith.. A full shake up of Pakistani Sociopolitics
