I refer to comment by a regular reader going by the name Hashimoto,
"Stoning to death is a punishment for those who had commit adultery. This applied for both the man and woman.Of course he was referring to the stoning as a punishment for adultery.
Islam is very strict with regard to adultery. However, I've never heard this punishment being carried out and furthermore the judge will also look into the marital well being of the individuals involved before sentencing."
I reiterate that, by choice, I rarely comment on matters related to Islam.
In the question of Hudud laws, I have an issue with amputation and stoning as punishments. I consider it extreme and in saying so will offend not a few of the Muslim faith.
The following report is NOT punishment meted by an Islamic court, this must be made absolutely clear.
In Iraq, Stoned to death for being an emo: NINETY Iraqi students killed for having 'strange hair and tight clothes'
A group of armed men dressed in civilian clothing led dozens of teenagers to secluded areas a few days ago, stoned them to death, and then disposed their bodies in garbage dumpsters across the capital, according to activists, activists told the Cairo-based al-Akhbar website.Western vested interests have achieved democracy in the liberation of Iraq. This has led to a more open Western culture in Iraq, it would seem, and consequences by religious extremists.
The armed men are said to belong to 'one of the most extremist religious groups' in Iraq.
'First they throw concrete blocks at the boy's arms, then at his legs, then the final blow is to his head, and if he is not dead then, they start all over again,' one person who managed to escape told Al-Akhbar.
