Abstract

The issue of whipping punishment under Syariah Law has been publicly debated of late. The said punishment has always been claimed as barbaric. It is also often labelled as ineffective and impractical. Such blatant lies and baseless accusations against its enforcement are often hurled by muslims themselves unfortunately. Even those who are in ignorance of Syariah Law dare to criticize it. Hence, this article aims at dispelling the above misconceptions. It seeks to prove that whipping punishment under Syariah Law is just, effective and practical if applied strictly in accordance with Syariah principles. It is also observed that lack of proper and correct information on the true fact on Islamic whipping punishment has led to the above misconceptions. Last but not least, this article suggests that serious effort must be made to educate the public on this issue.
