Pakistan harassment of women

Islamabad: Multan Court in Pakistan came up with an unusual punishment for a man convicted of harassing a woman. The convict was made to stand around the roundabouts displaying traffic banners for 36 days.

Mohammad Ajmal faced charges after he allegedly harassed a female health worker in Multan. The banner he has had to display was meant to spread awareness regarding over-speeding.

According to a Tribune news report, the court also directed probation officers to monitor the implementation of the orders.

The report also says that the Chief Justice of Sindh High Court, Ahmed Ali Sheikh, has taken notice of the unusual punishment and has asked for a thorough report in this regard.

In a similar case in Karachi Additional District and Sessions judge Haleem Ahmed had sentenced a man convicted of possessing an illegal weapon to three years of daily congregational prayers.

In another instance, a judicial magistrate in the metropolis handed down punishment to a man for hitting a cop with his motorcycle – standing at a traffic signal for two hours, once a week for a whole year holding a placard on speed awareness.
