Only Male PM and President! Another ‘Political’ Twist?

Over at Gulf News, I just read about Maulana Samiul Haq, the leader of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam with their recent (yet nothing new) demands for only males being eligible for the position of Prime Minister and President of Pakistan. How primitive is that! I don’t support BB but that does not mean I object to this radical and gender-biased approach by the party in its election manifesto!

Further to that, the JUI-S said it would discourage co-education, open separate women universities, make the Arabic language as a compulsory subject and declare English as an elective instead. The manifesto also promises to abolish interest-based banking across the country and to curtail the 17th amendment to the Constitution.

Can’t really say if this is for real or yet another chain of ‘a politician’s promises’ for the upcoming elections. We all know how ‘true’ the politicians are as far as keeping up with their election manifestos is concerned. The JUI-S is aiming for the support of the conservatives and the maulanas of Pakistan whose majority (if not entirity) are as naive as they are illiterate. I wonder how come they forgot to add ‘beard is a must’ in the manifesto. Maybe in version 2 by end December?

The JUI-S has announced its 24 candidates for the National Assembly from the North West Frontier Province and Punjab while it announced 38 candidates for the four provincial assemblies.

There goes the neighborhood!
