Proposal for public display of bodies of convicts of Sexual offenders of Children in Pakistan

A bill titled ‘Criminal Laws (offences relating to kidnapping or abducting a child) (Amendment) Bill, 2018’ has been tabled in the Upper House and sent to the Senate Standing Committee on Law and Justice for further consideration. The Bill has a proposal for displaying the bodies of those executed after being convicted of child sexual abuse and murder. This provision needs to be checked as per Islam as Islam respects the dead.

Since a Supreme Court judgment of 1994 banned public hangings, an example may be created by displaying the bodies of such convicts.
