Domestic Violence Bill: What does it actually say?

See Reactions here!

Last month, the Senate passed the Domestic Violence (Prevention and Protection) Bill, 2021, to establish an effective protection system for women, children, and any vulnerable person.

 The bill stated the Constitution mandates the state of Pakistan to protect its citizens from illegal deprivation of life and freedom and holds inviolable the dignity of every person.

The bill also states that all citizens are equal before the law. It prohibits discrimination based on sex. These rights to life, honor, and non-discrimination are violated through acts of domestic violence, which are widespread and occur regardless of age or socioeconomic status.

The bill was opposed by many politicians including, Mushtaq Ahmed from the Jamaat-e-Islami (JI), Atta-ur-Rehman from the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Fazl (JUI-F), and Rana Maqbool from the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N).

Recently, Analyst Ansar Abbasi opposed the bill using the hashtag “WeRjectDomesticViolenceBill2021” on his official Twitter account.

However, Netizens have been criticizing Abbasi for starting the trend.
