PUNISHMENT OF SODOMY BY THE ISLAMIC COURT:
Since sodomy is a greater sin than adultery and its evils are worse, the punishment of sodomy, in accordance with the Islamic Shariaâ€™h is also more severe. Islam prescribes capital punishment for the active as well as the passive partner in the crime. If both are adults and sane, both of them have to be killed. The active partner has to be beheaded with the sword or killed by stonning or burnt alive or thrown from a height with the hands and the legs tied. It is at the descretion of the Islamic Qadhi (Judge) to determine the method. Similarly, the method adopted for the death of the passive partner is also determined by the Qadhi. According to Ameerul-Muâ€™mineen (as), a person who has committed this sin must also be burnt after being killed.
