Stop Stoning to Death

In stoning to death, victims will be buried up to their chest in a hole and covered with soil, then rocks will be thrown at their heads until they die in pain and their blood. This is very barbaric punishment.

Let's put an stop on this horrifying form of punishment once for all. Sign the petition.

I was checking out the Sharia law and I came across to this article related to stoning: "The stoning of an adulterer or adulteress shall be carried out while each is placed in a hole and covered with soil, he up to his waist and she up to a line above her breasts." This is Article 102 of The Islamic Penal code of Iran that you can find in Book 2: Punishments specified in Shari’a (Haads) of Iran's Penal code or here. You can find Persian version over here.

Back then I wrote about stoning to death in "What is really execution by stoning?".

Hat tips: stop torturing us
