Daughter of the murdered ex-Prime Minister of Pakistan Benazir Bhutto, Bakhtawar bhutto Zardari, has tweeted on tuesday against the Ehtaram-e-Ramazan bill which was approved by the Senate Standing Committee for Religious Affairs.
In her tweet she claimed that not every one was fit enough to fast. Those who cant might die of dehydration or heat stroke. Hence, she claimed that it is a “ridiculous law”.

The Ehtaram-e-Ramzan Bill states that people who will eat or smoke openly during Ramazan they may be fined rupees 500 and may face a three month imprisonment. TV channels and cinemas will also be fined 500,000 or more along with imprisonment.
