He has called for public hanging and chemical castration of rapists. There is tremendous protest going on in Pakistan after the incident of gang-rape of a woman of French origin in front of children.
Pakistan PM Imran Khan has supported the accused to be hanged publicly or to make chemical castration through injection after the incident.
