The Council of Islamic Ideology termed the process of human cloning “illegal”, during a meeting in Islamabad on Wednesday, reported Express News.

The meeting was headed by Maulana Muhammad Khan Sherani during which the council maintained that there is nothing wrong with the blasphemy law of the country and it doesn’t need any amendments.

The council also said that the DNA tests in rape cases are unacceptable and should only be taken as supplementary evidence.

It further directed the Higher Education Commission and other relevant institutions to rectify the English translation of “Allah”, “Rasool” and “Masjid”, while terming the usage of terms including “Holy Book” and “Holy Place” illegal.
