Cabinet criticizes “false reports” of Nawaz Sharif using IB against parlimentarians
Ministers at a cabinet session this Tuesday criticized a “fabricated” report aired by ARY News in their programme ‘Power Play’, which claimed that Sharif ordered the Intelligence Bureau to inquire into 37 lawmakers for alleged links with banned sectarian and terrorist outfits. Ministers present at the babinet session, who were also included in the list, said that IB had denied such orders and the news had only sought to damage their reputation.
Presiding over the cabinet session, Prime Minister Khaqan Abbasi ordered Law Minister Zahid Hamid to probe the issue and ensure action against the channel through the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA).
Saudi Arabia announced on Tuesday that it would allow women to drive, ending a longstanding policy that has become a global symbol of the oppression of women in the ultraconservative kingdom.
The change, which will take effect in June 2018, was announced in a royal decree read live on state television and in a simultaneous media event in Washington. The decision highlights the damage that the ban on women driving has done to the kingdom’s international reputation and its hopes for a public relations benefit from the reform.
Saudi leaders also hope the new policy will help the economy by increasing women’s participation in the workplace. Many working Saudi women spend much of their salaries on drivers or must be driven to work by male relatives.
