Top cleric calls hand chopping greatest mercy

Pointing to the hand amputation sentence the head of Friday Prayers in Tehran said, “These (sentences) are considered violent by those who do not know about the depth of these customs, while it is the greatest mercy”…

Ahmad Khatami stressed that retribution (death sentences) and amputation are the greatest mercy in the society and said, “Islam… talks of the decisive implementation of Islamic laws because in this way, the life of thousands are saved”. (Fars state-run News Agency – Nov. 9, 2010)
