“This is the coun­cil which says hus­band can beat his wife,” said Babar said the CII also de­nied DNA as proof in rape cases.

He said that coun­cil had also sug­gested to the peo­ple to write ‘Kalma Tayyaba’ on their homes so that cul­ture of Ji­had can be pro­moted.

“A coun­cil should not con­tinue its job with so many con­tro­ver­sies,” Babar said adding that the coun­cil has also de­clared min­i­mum age for a girl’s wed­ding as un-Is­lamic.

Babar raised con­cerns over the in­crease in the an­nual bud­get of the coun­cil and de­manded the govern­ment to with­draw the funds al­lo­cated for CII. “Money al­lo­cated for the coun­cil should be given to Na­tional Com­mis­sion for the Pro­tec­tion of Women,” the sen­a­tor stated. He added the par­lia­ment or pro­vin­cial as­sem­blies can con­sult the Ulema if any leg­is­la­tion re­quired an Is­lamic point of view.
