A Small Step Forward in Pakistan

Pakistan Moves to Amend Rape Laws - Under the strict Islamic "Law" it required 4 eyewitnesses for a woman to prove rape. This was obviously done to make men immune to prosecution. Anyway a small change was made.
Pakistan's lower house of Parliament passed amendments to the country's rape laws Wednesday, ditching the death penalty for extramarital sex and revising a clause on making victims produce four witnesses to prove rape cases.
The Islamic Nutters conservatives were of course outraged. They are no longer free to rape with impunity.

A small step, but a step nonetheless.

I am always curious about why the multiculturalists don't condemn traditional Islam for these insane laws that keep women down instead of defending "different cultures." Laws designed that effectively limit a woman's right to justice if attacked are wrong.
