Govt Defends the New PECA Ordinance Amid Staunch Criticism

In the face of widespread criticism, the incumbent government defended the newly released ordinance which includes the amendment in the Prevention of Electronic Crimes Act (PECA), 2016. ‘The censure was unwarranted’, according to Prime Minister Imran Khan during a meeting with cabinet members. It is in reaction to the opposition parties who warned that they would challenge the “draconian” law in courts and parliament.

According to reports, the prime minister described the opposition parties’ and others’ rejection of the legislation as unwarranted, stating that the ordinance would stop people from ruining others’ respect and dignity. According to the PM,

Such laws were deliberately not made in the past, which led to ruining the morality of the youth.
