I published these for Sunni Muslims and Shia Muslims who are so ignorant that they are still killing men and women using these laws. Jews must have find better interpretation of these punishment because they don’t have stoning to death punishment. Sunni Muslims must open their minds all around the world specially the religious scholars who try to justify these punishment with their unintelligent illogical arguments. Shame on all those who support this cruel punishment.
