    Although I find this post a bit bewildering since the rickshaw message has been well dissected elsewhere in fair details.

    “there is no relation in passing the Haqooq-e-Niswan bill and passing the alcohol bill”

    There is a clear relationship, although there is no “alcohol bill” anywhere in the sight yet but we all know the spirit (pun intended) behind the idea. Consider.

    The WPB was a sign of growing realization on the need for doing away irrational pieces of legislations that demean individual on the basis of their so-called “inferior” state of emotion and mind. The bill was to recognize the fact that women are equally intelligent beings who cannot be made second class citizens. The WPB was an acknowledgement of intellectual parity of women and considered them equally capable of making rational as opposed to emotional decisions and judgments.

    The demand for the retraction of the prohibition is based on the rationality that adults are intellectually capable of making rational decisions about themselves, including their eating or drinking or other preferences. The government should eliminate any legislation which belittles a grown up person’s right to make his personal choices and the course of actions.

    In both cases, certain pieces of legislation degrade intelligence of individuals.
