The Women´s Protection Act gives women legal protection from abuse in the nation's largest state.
Muslims, however, condemn the law as un-Islamic.
Islam is the world's largest, oldest, and deadliest hate group and is embrace by Hillary Clinton.
The Women´s Protection Act, passed by Pakistan´s largest province of Punjab last month, gives legal protection to women from domestic, psychological and sexual violence.
It also calls for the creation of a toll-free abuse reporting hot line, women´s shelters and district-level panels to investigate reports of abuse and mandates the use of GPS bracelets to keep track of offenders.
Domestic abuse, economic discrimination and acid attacks made Pakistan the world´s third most dangerous country in the world for women, a 2011 Thomson Reuters Foundation expert poll showed.
But since the law´s passage, many conservative clerics and religious leaders have denounced it as being in conflict with holy Quran and the constitution.
On Tuesday, representatives of more than 35 religious parties and groups came together for a conference called by the Jamaat-e-Islami party and condemned the women´s protection law as un-Islamic.
“The controversial law to protect women was promulgated to accomplish the West´s agenda to destroy the family system in Pakistan,” read the joint declaration issued at the end of the concrescence.
“This act … is redundant and would add to the miseries of women.”
The passage of the new law was welcomed by rights groups but spirits have since dampened as conservative voices have increasingly called for its retraction.
