Some of our media and west dominated organisations are criticising death penalty as uncivilised and inhuman, whereas Quranic teachings and our revenge culture has ingrained the concept of a life for life in our psyche and religious belief. Furthermore, our law prescribes death penalty for murder. Unfortunately, our Parliament is not concerned with this important national issue while the law is being violated since 2008, and bereaved families are not getting justice provided by law. What is the remedy for this confused legal situation?
