Is hand amputation coming back to Iran....

I say, bring it back...
Iranian police have said that they are prepared to use the full force of Sharia law such as amputating hands, after failure to use such punishments led to an increase in crime.

Under Iran's Islamic law, repeat offenders face amputation of their fingers for theft, but sentences are seldom carried out, especially in public, and in recent years, such sentences have rarely been reported.

'Not carrying the Islamic punishment law, particularly its most important part that is hand amputation, spreads insecurity in Iran,' the head of the country's criminal police force told the Ebtekar newspaper today.

'Police are ready to carry out hand amputation of convicted criminals,' Asghar Jafari added.
