Yesterday’s post dealt with the topic of apostasy in Islam. Here are some Muslim voices who reject the death penalty for apostasy from Islam,
- Egypt’s Grand Mufti, Ali Gomaa, has unequivocally told the Washington Post that the death penalty for apostasy no longer applies.
- Dr. Hisham Hellyer, a Fellow of the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies at University of Oxford, believes the death penalty punishment is no longer applicable and should be suspended under certain circumstances.
