Kano Islamic Scholars Reject Proposed Castration Of Rapists

 

 

 

 

The Kano Council of Ulamas, on Monday, rejected a proposal by the Kano State House of Assembly that rapists should be castrated.

The Islamic scholars in Kano under the aegis, Council of Ulamas, have kicked against the decision made by state As­sembly for the castration punishment for the offense of rape in the state.

 

The state House of Assembly had on July 15, adopted the proposal for the castration of confirmed rapists following a motion sponsored by a member, Mr Nuraddeen Alhassan.

 

However, in a statement released by the Islamic scholars chairman Sheik Ibrahim Khalil and made available to newsmen in Kano, the Islamic scholars argued that the punishment of castration for rape is against the teaching of Islam.

According to the Islamic scholars, the lawmakers need to go back and bring out Old Kano Sharia Law, which states the punishment for rapists.

 

Islamic scholars stated that there is punishment in the law for rape offenders and adulterers, which are all major sins in Islam.

Sheik Ibrahim Khalil said the Council of Ulama will visit Kano State House of Assembly to interact with the members on the matter.
