MMA lawmaker says will seek police FIR against Aurat March

 

Addressing a session of the Sindh Assembly, the MMA MPA mainly targeted the Aurat (Women's) March which took place at the Frere Hall in Karachi.

Killing of Pakistanis by Saudi Arab on the rise, report.

Muttahida Majlis-i-Amal (MMA) lawmaker Abdul Rasheed has lashed out at the 'Aurat March' which was held across Pakistani cities on March 8, saying he would complain to police to have a case registered against the organisers of the event which he alleged disrespected women and was in violation of Islamic principles.

International Women's Day celebrations are being criticized in Pakistan

He requested the Sindh government's support in registering a first information report (FIR) against the march's organisers, saying he hoped the provincial government would cooperate with him "on the basis of the ideology and laws of Pakistan"

 

Women in large numbers, as well as men, had participated in last week's Aurat March held across the country to mark International Women’s Day. The first such march took place in Karachi in 2018; this year, the rally was extended to more cities including Lahore, Multan, Faisalabad, Larkana and Hyderabad

"The placards held by women at the march carried such shameful slogans that a man would be embarrassed just by reading them," the MMA lawmaker claimed.

India's River Diversion Plan and South Asia's Waters

More dams are to come, as India’s need to power its economy means it is quietly spending billions on hydropower in Kashmir. The Senate report totted up 33 hydro projects in the border area with Pakistan. The state’s chief minister, Omar Abdullah, says dams will add an extra 3,000MW to the grid in the next eight years alone. Some analysts in Srinagar talk of over 60 dam projects, large and small, now on the books.
