NECESSITATED AS TO DEATH BY GALLOWS UNISLAMIC
Pity on Dr Zaffar Bukhari, unaware of “Principles-of-Islam” though born (ascendant of) in family of Sher Shah Syed Jallal Surkh Bukhari, whose shrine in Uch Sharif, District Bahawalpur of defunct independent State of Bahawalpur. Ibid saint came to Indo-Pak Subcontinent to preach Islam, bare footed, from Bukhara about twelve hundreds years back. Spreading Islam in Cholistan, Rajasthan (India), Sindh, Baluchistan and Frontier etc.
One of the self-suffered scholars of Islam, Mr. Humayun Zaheer came forth with theory of, “Death Sentence by hanging onto Gallows has no cognisence in Holy Quran & Sunnah” thereto meaning thereby that stand of Taliban
to bring the Constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan in conformity with “Principles-of-Islam” as enshrined in Quran and Sunnah consistent with the Constitution of Pakistan. Not a otherwise good demand, but approach is an
objectionable! Honestly speaking the punishment of Qisas and Diyat are laid down in the Constitution, decidedly lack its implementation in letter and spirit on all fours.
If take it in conflict with an Islamic Injection then death by Gallows, is not even an iota of trivial punishment sequalae present lawlessness, for which the onus lies of State in the garb of good governance. Ought to be implemented in letter and spirit forth with, irresespective of cast, creed, gender, age, status and position. The
Punishment to executed on every ensuing Friday rather than to long tardy decisions awaited in courts and prisoners
dumped in cells of gaols, worst than animals!
QISAS & DIYAT:
Qisas means punishment awarded to an assailant causing him similar hurt at the same part of the body or by causing his death if he has committed qatil. Punishment within tit-for-tat shall put right the assailants straightway.
Specially the cases of Vitriolage by throwing Acids and Alkalis on innocent females!
Diyat means compensation payable to the heirs according to Quran and Sunnah to the heirs of victim, which shall not be less than value of 30,630 grams of silver.
In recent era case of Raymond Davis shall be an existing parameter though integrity of heir of victim plays major role!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It should not be kept out of purview as in Martyr Benazir Bhutto, to comply with the desire and wishes of husband, Mr. Asif Zardari Bhutto not to conduct the post-
mortem. It is defined legal dictim that after death prerogative in such cases lies with State and not President of Pakistan. That post-mortem would have straightway conducted to meet the two ends of justice.
Please, Dr Jawed Ghemdi, Dr Zakir Naik, Dr Syeda Khanam Tuyyaba Bukhari and Dr Sidra Iqbal do throw light on ibid issue in the light of “Principles-of-Islam” as enshrined in Quran and Sunnah.
