Stoning is punishement prescribed in the Bible and Qu'ran. Fortunately it is no longer practised in civilsed countries. In Islamic countries like Saudi Arabia, Iran and Afghanistan this punishment is still practised today. An example of stoning is that of a seventeen year old Kurdish girl in Iraq.
Only six Islamic nations have stoning as a lawful punishment, out of 52 Islamic nations. That's still six too many.
