Former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto’s daughter Bakhtawar Bhutto Zardari slammed Pakistan Ramzan law forbidding public eating during Ramzan month.
Ehtram-e-Ramazan (Amendment) Bill was approved by Senate Standing Committee on Religious Affairs which prohibits eating and drinking in public during the month of Ramazan and even threatens imprisonment for offenders.
She tweeted, “Fasting is 1 of the 5 pillars of Islam. It is an imp obligation. But where is law re punish every1 around u with arrests?! Not in Islam. But not every1 in 🇵🇰 will be fasting -children in school/elderly/people with medical problems. Should we arrest them 4 drinking water 🤔 . 3month imprisonment 4 drinking water during Ramazan but being a terrorist, attempting 2 kill school girls #Malala & u can keep smiling on tv” (sic).
