Kuwait Parliament Approves Death Penalty for Those Who Insult Allah

Kuwait Parliament Approves Death Penalty for Those Who Insult Allah

Kuwait’s parliament has approved the death penalty for any Muslim who insults Allah, “his prophets, messengers, Prophet Mohammed’s wives or the Koran, in any form of expression, if they don’t repent.”

The law requires judges to give offenders an opportunity to repent. If the offender repents, he gets to live but faces prison for at least five years and a fine of $36,000. “Non-Muslims will be sentenced to 10 years in prison if convicted of violating the law.”

40 Kuwaiti lawmakers, including “all Cabinet members present,” voted for the new law. 

Lawmaker AbdulHamid Dashti opposed the measure, saying it “should be broadened to criminalize those who insult all beliefs and faiths.”
