ISLAMABAD: Condemning the gang-rape incident on Lahore-Sialkot motorway, Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday said that Lahore motorway incident has shaken the entire nation and criminals like “motorway rapists” should be hanged publicly.
In an interview with private news channel, the prime minister said that motorway gang-rape incident has hit entre nation on a personal level and all pedophiles, rapists should be chemically castrated.
“Lahore motorway has shaken the entire nation. We all identify women as our sisters or daughters. This incident has hit us all on a personal level.”
“I personally think pedophiles and rapists must be hanged publicly but I’m told that we have international repercussions. European Union EU’s GSP status for trade with Pakistan will be affected by public hangings. Hence I think chemical castration must be conducted on those criminals,” added the prime minister.
The prime minister said that motorway incident would not have happened if main culprit Abid Ali, who was arrested in 2013, has given strict punishment. “Hence, it has become necessary that we should chemically castrate rapists and maintain registries of such criminals.”
