Pakistan: "DNA tests aren't acceptable in rape cases"

The Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) has said that DNA as primary evidence is not acceptable in rape cases. However, the CII was of the view that DNA could only be used as secondary evidence.A meeting of CII headed by Maulana Muhammad Khan Sheerani was held here on Wednesday. The council said that DNA test is not acceptable but it could be considered as supporting evidence in rape cases.
The CII said that Islam sets procedures to determine crime cases of rape.

4. So funny that they cast the light that the west followed out of the dark ages.

It sad to see what the rise of wahhabism has done to what was once the most progressive religion of the book. Unfortunately for the world the Mu'tazila's are long dead, at least Sufism has survived.
