Sindh Assembly demands end to Council of Islamic Ideology

KARACHI: The Sindh Assembly Monday demanded the disbandment of the Council of Islamic Ideology while passing a resolution to stop implementation on the CII’s earlier decisions, DawnNews reported.

The resolution was moved by Pakistan Muslim League-Functional’s (PML-F) leader Mehtab Akhtar Rashidi.

The Assembly expressed serious reservations over the recent decisions taken by the CII with regards to women.

It moreover demanded of the federal government that any implementation of the CII’s recommendations on underage marriages and DNA tests should be stopped

The CII has come under fire with its controversial statements and rulings.

Earlier this month, the CII had ruled that laws related to minimum age of marriage were un-Islamic and that children of any age could get married if they attain puberty.
