Bahraini MPs want Islamic law to curb crimeTopics: Middle East News and Perspectives
A Bahraini MP yesterday called for the gradual introduction of Sharia (Islamic) law to deal with all criminals. Another claimed that thieves should have their hands chopped off because "God ordered us to do so". Another one described the punishment as unfair if adulterers are not stoned. The comments were made in parliament yesterday as MPs discussed amendments to the country's Penal Code.
