Council of Islamic Ideology declares women’s existence un-Islamic

ISLAMABAD-The Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) has proposed its own women protection bill, recommending women be declared un-Islamic for their own protection, Khabaristan Times has learnt. The bill has been drafted after the CII rejected Punjab’s Protection of Women against Violence Act (PPWA) 2015 terming it un-Islamic.

CII concluded the draft with the ruling that women are un-Islamic and that their mere existence of women contradicted Sharia and the will of Allah. CII Chairman Maulana Muhammad Khan Sheerani noted that women by existing defied the laws of nature, and to protect Islam and the Sharia women should be forced to stop existing as soon as possible. He also insisted that beating women would protect women themselves, hence calling his 163-page recommendation ‘Women Protection Bill’.
After declaring women to be un-Islamic, Sheerani explained that there were actually two kinds of women – haraam and makrooh. “We can divide all women in the world into two distinct categories: those who are haraam and those who are makrooh. Now the difference between haraam and makrooh is that the former is categorically forbidden while the latter is really really disliked,” Sheerani said.
He further went on to explain how the women around the world can ensure that they get promoted to being makrooh, from just being downright haraam. “Any woman that exercises her will is haraam, absolutely haraam, and is conspiring against Islam and the Ummah, whereas those women who are totally subservient can reach the status of being makrooh. Such is the generosity of our ideology and such is the endeavour of Muslim men like us who are the true torchbearers of gender equality,” the CII chairman added.
Officials told Khabaristan Times that the council members deliberated over various historic references related to women and concluded that each woman is a source of fitna and a perpetual enemy of Islam. They also decided that by restricting them to their subordinate, bordering on slave status, the momineen and the mujahideen can ensure that Islam continues to be the religion of peace, prosperity and gender equality.
Responding to a question one of the officials said that international standards of gender equality should not be used if they contradict Islam or the Constitution of Pakistan that had incorporated Islam and had given sovereignty to Allah. “We don’t believe in western ideals, and nothing that contradicts Islam should ever be paid heed. In any case by giving women the higher status of being makrooh, it’s us Muslims who have paved the way for true, Sharia compliant feminism,” the official said.
The CII meeting also advised the government that to protect Islam, and women as well, women’s right to breathe should also be taken away from them. “Whether a woman is allowed to breathe or not be left up to her husband or male guardian, and no woman under any circumstance whatsoever should be allowed to decide whether she can breathe or not,” Sheerani said.
