In Saudi Arabia, those who are guilty of stealing have their hands amputated and those guilty of murder are sentenced to death. There was a recent case whereby a victim was paralysed by his assailant in the course of a fight. The victim requested that the guilty party be punished by rendering the spinal chord non-functional. The court granted the request.
I would appreciate any comments particularly from hubbers who are followers of Islam. I think as much as Islam gives the Muslim victim the right to request a certain punishment - Shouldn't certain aspects of Koranic law, like this 'eye for an eye ... a tooth for a tooth' law change with the times?
