From stoning to death to lashes and crucifixion, Islamic State publishes list of punishments

Beirut: The hardliners of Islamic State have published a list of punishments, ranging from amputation, stoning and crucifixion for violating the Sharia law, as per reports on Saturday.

According to The Independent, the document entitled "Clarification [regarding] the hudud ( a set of fixed punishments)” was published by the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq.

The law decided by the ISIS will be enforced in areas under its control which now covers large swathes of Iraq and Syria.

The punishments include 'stoning to death' for adultery for married people and 100 lashes or exile for unmarried people. The death sentence is also decided for those engaged in 'sodomy (homosexuality)' or spying for non-believers.

For blasphemy and apostasy, it’s death and for liquor consumption there will be 80 lashes.

The list also states that in cases of stealing, right hand and left leg of the thief will be cut off and those terrorising people will be exiled.

The ISIS also released images of eight Iraqi policemen executed for passing on information to the Iraqi Army, The Independent stated.
