Dear participants including Dr. Shabbir Ahmad since I would like to know his views, In Saudi Arabia, criminals are beheaded in public with Sword. Is public beheading in accordance with Quranic teachings? For what crimes Quran encourages or prescribes death penalty? If it does, how should the death penalty be carried?
