Punishment of rape

According to traditional jurisprudence,
rape must be proved by testimony of
four eyewitnesses and not only that
they have seen the crime they have to describe the act of penetration of pennis
inside the vagina exactly like penetration of thread inside needle. n Pakistan, the
Hudood ordinances of 1979 subsumed prosecution of rape under the category
of zina, making rape extremely difficult to prove and exposing the victims to jail sentences for admitting illicit intercourse forced upon them. Although these laws
were amended in 2006, they still blur
the legal distinction between rape and consensual sex. In Sind ( jackobabad,
sukkur, larkana, tharparkar ) areas, land
lords kidnap young beautiful Hindu
girls and rape them, these girls during interrogation have to provide four eyewitness who have seen the act of full penetration. Just imagine the misery and helplessness of victim. As I have mentioned in my previous post, wave of change has come and new generation girls are consensually involve in sex because they know even they are caught, no one can prove it. This is a ground reality on one
hand but on other hand how shamelessly it goes on.
