 Rape
In Pakistan outraging a woman's modesty is not considered a crime if the women is paid later to not register a police case.

According Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah, there are two types of rapes. One is 'forced' and other 'with consent'.

Commenting on rape charges against PML-N MPA Munawwar Gill, Sanaullah said there was no solid proof against Gill as the act was with the consent of the woman.

"There is a difference between rape-bil-jabr and rape-bil-raza. Since both Gill and the woman consented to act and the woman, after receiving a huge sum of money, withdrew the charges, there are no grounds for rape," The Daily Times quoted Sanaullah, as saying.

It may be recalled that police had registered a case against Gill on the complaint of Tahira Parveen, 35, who alleged that Gill raped her at gunpoint.

Parveen told police that Gill had called her to a hotel saying he would help her settle a property dispute, but taking advantage of her being alone he raped her.
