Usage today

.Among the world's countries with Muslim majorities, very few (the unofficial sharia court which runs in parallel with judicial court) exercise this form of punishment.^ My answer came on March 30th, 2005 when the Islamic activist scholar, Professor Tariq Ramadan, issued ?An International Call for a Moratorium on corporal punishment, stoning and the death penalty in the Islamic World.’ In it he called for an “immediate moratorium” in Muslim-majority countries on the application of these hudud punishments prescribed in Shari’a law.

^ In a total betrayal of the Islamic message of justice, many Muslim majority countries, in the name of hudud (which is but a small part of Shari’ a), are implementing repressive policies and injustices (from corporal punishments to death penalties) in the name of Islam.

^ There are many in our Nation, that will go to any length to end our policy of capital punishment; the rallying to denounce other country's forms of capital punishment is part of that rally.
