A law has passed in the United Arab Emirates against the mishandling of the national flag.
According to the Ministry of Culture and Knowledge Development, the UAE flag law states: “Any person who publicly drops, damages or in any way insults the Union flag, the flag of any member emirate in the Union on the flag of any other country as a result of disgust or contempt of the powers of the Union, the emirates or the relevant countries, shall be punished by prison for a period of no more than six months and a fine of no more than Dh1,000.”
The step taken by the government of UAE on the implementation of such a law is highly appreciated. In fact, this law should be implemented in Pakistan as well. The way we insult and dishonour our national flag, especially during protests and national festive gatherings.
“This is what we need in Pakistan”
