Castration of rapist: Kano Islamic scholars reject proposal

Kano State

The Kano Council of Ulamas, on Monday, rejected a proposal by the Kano State House of Assembly that rapists should be castrated. The state House of Assembly had adopted the proposal for the castration of confirmed rapists, following a motion sponsored by a member, Nuraddeen Alhassan, on July 15, 2020.

A communiqué, signed by the Council’s Chairman, Sheik Ibrahim Khalil, , noted that the council opposed the proposed castration, after due consultations, hence it was advocating a review of the Kano State Shari’a Penal Code 2000.

Khalil, however, pointed out that the council’s position did not mean they were supporting the criminal act of rapists.
