The scheme of the punishment is laid down from sections
53 to 75 of the pakistan penal code out of which five
sections namely sections 56, 58, 59, 61, and 62 have
already been repealed. Different types of punishments rules
for their assessment and enhancement in subsequent
offence, from the subject matter of this topic .
The punishment in islam in its nature, is deterrent as well as
reformative. Recent researches reveal that imprisonment is
and has, infact proved itself to be a source of producing
criminals, besides bringing a burden on public ex-chequer.
Fine, as prescribed in various modern legislative
enactments, has miserably failed to achieve the desired
results . It neither bring any reformatory to the criminalnor
put any deterrent effecton him. Specially in these days
when the money value has gone down tremendously, the
country's old scales of fines failed to produce any effects
on the minds of the criminal. It is suggested that provisions
relating to imposition of fine and prescribing imprisonment
in various enactments may be reconsideredin the light of
their effects on reforming the criminal vis-a-vis the islamic
principles of punishment.
Islamic law has also additional forms of punishements. A
person who is convicted of false accusation of fornication
for example, is deprived of the right of testimony, a pnalty
which corresponds to some extent to the loss of civil status
which accompanies some convictions, today.
Punishments in islam are of three kinds
According to section 53 as amended by the criminal laws
amendment act II of 1997, the offenders areliable to the
following punishments:
1. Qisas
2. Diyat
3. Arsh
4. Daman
5. Taazir
6. Death
7. Imprisonment for life
8. imprisonment of two description (1) rigorous (2) simple
9. Forfeiture of property
10. Fine
