Alcohol not forbidden in Islam, Prime Minister's advisor makes a new claim
The NA body held a meeting on Wednesday under the chairmanship of MNA Chaudhry Mahmood Bashir Virk and attended by other members including Mohsin Shah Nawaz Ranjha, Kiran Haider, Mumtaz Ahmed Tarar, Asiya Naz Tanoli, Shagufta Jumani, S.A. Iqbal Quadri and Arif Alvi.
Member National Assembly Naeema Kishwer Khan moved the bill stating that no religion gives permission for usage of alcohol, adding that words regarding selling should be removed from the Constitution. However, members of the committee opposed the bill.
During meeting, member Shagufta Jumani said that everybody consumed alcohol but no one declared it publicly.
But, Special Assistant to PM barrister Zafarullah made a new claim that alcohol is not forbidden in Qura’an, while PTI member Dr Arif Alvi said that non-implementable points should not be included in the Constitution.
Chairman Mahmood Bashir said that the committee has already turned down a same bill, adding, “We all want elimination of alcohol but prohibition on it for minorities would cause of international criticism."
The committee sought the references of various religions about liquor drinking and Sindh High Court (SHC) verdict's regarding the ban over liquor production in next meeting.
