‘Not Islamic’: Bhutto’s daughter slams bill forbidding public eating during Ramzan

New Delhi [India]: Twitter to express her outrage over Ehtram-e-Ramazan (Amendment) Bill which prohibits eating and drinking in public during the month of Ramazan and even threatens imprisonment for offenders.

In a series of tweet, Bakhtwar said, “People are going to die from heat stroke and dehydration with this ridiculous law. Not everyone is able. This is not Islam.”

“But not every1 in Pak will be fasting -children in school/elderly/people with medical problems. Should we arrest them 4 drinking water”
