Strangest Laws In Pakistan

Like all of the countries Pakistan has some laws that will leave you going, huh?
Some people even find some of these laws
Just very surprising and some have been considered to be extremely controversial by others here are ten of the weirdest
surprising and most controversial laws in Pakistan counting down from number 10 to number one
Starting off at number 10 you cannot use English words for some Arabic words the Pakistani government has approved a summary
prohibiting the English translation of Islamic terms
sacred Arabic names and words like Allah
Masjid Saleh art and Rasool are now forbidden to be translated in English as God mosque prayer and profit in that

Respective order now. Do you know it’s illegal to eat in public for a month every year now
This is because Ramadan is an important month for Muslims and considered to be very sacred in Islamic countries
Since Pakistan of course is an Islamic country people are not allowed to eat in public in the month of Ramadan even if they’re non
Muslim so that’s where it gets a bit interesting there now the tax education in a third world country where almost half of the population
is struggling to get basic education imposing taxes on education is a little too much and
Pakistan has been doing this for quite some time if you spend more than 2 lakh rupees
on education
5% tax will be imposed for it. Also you cannot travel to Israel so

Pakistan has not recognized Israel as a separate state
Which is why the Foreign Ministry of Pakistan does not actually allow
Pakistanis to visit Israel on a Pakistani passport the next law I want to talk about is
Transgenders cannot join the army now. There are milli of transgenders and
crossdressers in Pakistan however along with several other

Limitations what they can do they’re also not able to join the Pakistani army?
This is also pretty interesting one sending spam messages is actually illegal so sending someone a spam message
Of course is just super annoying right?
Now if you’re caught spamming anyone guess what you’ll have to pay a fine of 1 million rupees
Now the Prime Minister of Pakistan must be Muslim
But he doesn’t actually need to be educated to be a prime minister
Just that he has to be Muslim the eligibility requirements do mention an adequate knowledge of Islamic teachings and practices

As well as he has to abstain from major sins, but it doesn’t state any set of educational criteria
to hold office of a prime minister
Now this next lot was
super super controversial
Before the protection of Women Act in 2006 if you’ve been sexually
Assaulted check this you needed to produce 4

eyewitnesses in order to be proven as a victim the protection of Women Act in
2006 has tried to override this law by introducing the element of DNA evidence
Being admitted during any sort of sexual assault cases
But the issue still remains very controversial now do that there’s no
Issuance of a passport unless you declare Ahmadi community as non of Muslim so until the year
1974 the ahmadi community was considered a sect of Islam in Pakistan which was later declared a
non-muslim community
and then this is why it is compulsory for every Pakistani to sign the statement on their passport form that says I

approve Ahmadi community as a
non-muslim and now for the final law I want to share with you is about uploading memes, so
Uploading a meme can land you behind the bars right so you cannot pose any sort of funny pictures or memes about any political
Leaders regardless of how immature they may act sometime, so like you can’t be making fun of them
is all due to the
Cybercrime laws so under the cybercrime law of Pakistan section 17.
