The Malaysian Human Rights Commission (Suhakam) has called for the abolition of corporal punishment in both the civil and syariah laws.
This follows the caning of two women in Terengganu under syariah law for attempting sexual relations.

Since muslims believed Jesus as prophet , do they obey Jesus commandements :

“Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.

truth.8 : x kesah lah stone ke atau rottan...ada kah kita lebih mulia atau tiada satu dosa utk rottan orang lain kerana bersalah???

let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” 8 Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground.
At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. 10 Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?”“No one, sir,” she said.Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.”First and foremost we have to look at the context and history of the time to truly understand this passage.
What was the motivation of the accusers?Mosaic law required both the woman AND the man to be given the same punishment. The Pharisees were not in compliance with the law in which they were attempting to use by only bring the woman to Jesus.
While it may initially appear the Pharisees brought the woman caught in adultery to Jesus for justice, a quick look at verse 6, and we see that is not the case.
"They were trying to trap him into saying something they could use against him, but Jesus stooped down and wrote in the dust with his finger."These men who brought the woman to Jesus were desperately trying to trap Jesus in an attempt to "legally" kill Him... not the woman. She was simply a means to an end.
TAKEAWAY: It's important to examine our own motives when we're addressing others. Are we twisting the "law" in an attempt to condemn someone else? Are we pure-hearted in what we're doing?
Let's look at Jesus' response to the accusers.“All right, but let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone!”If you pluck this verse from the Bible without looking at the verses before and after, it's easy to misunderstand.
Is Jesus saying that we must not judge an action as sin? Are we being judgmental if we call sin, sin?
Jesus was in no way condoning the woman's behavior. (We'll examine that more thoroughly in the next point.)
Jesus was telling the accusers they were:
a.) Not in compliance with the law they were attempting to get Him to administer (they only brought the woman and not the man), andb.) According to Jewish law, the witness to the crime had to participate in the punishment. Hence why Jesus asked them about picking up the stone.In their attempt to trap Jesus, they had trapped themselves. They knew the Law, but they knew Jesus was right in His response.
Notice something interesting in the following verses?
"Then he stooped down again and wrote in the dust. When the accusers heard this, they slipped away one by one, beginning with the oldest, until only Jesus was left in the middle of the crowd with the woman." (8-9)Wouldn't you love to know what Jesus wrote in the dust?
That's my flesh talking... Obviously, if we needed to know what He wrote, God would have included it.
What we do know, though, is that the accusers left... the oldest first. Whatever Jesus wrote in the sand pricked the conscience of the men that day.
TAKEAWAY:When we knowingly twist God's word or law for our gain, He will never fall for it. His is perfect justice, and our meager attempts will never change that. Thankfully, He will prick our conscience to draw us back to repentance which leads torightrelationship.
