Islamic State (ISIS) militants have released a comprehensive set of "guidelines" that call for harsh punishments such as "stoning" women for having an 'affair.'
The ISIS guide lists out 11 set of "offences and punishments" based on the principles of Sharia law. Islamic State militants, who are Sunni Muslims, want to establish an Islamic kingdom governed by the Sharia law. Since June after the group took over large swathes of land in Syria and Iraq, it has been ruthlessly punishing people who break the Sharia law.
The ISIS penal code based on the Sharia law draws out some violent responses such as execution, crucifixion, mutilation, stoning and other forms of punishment for petty crimes such as stealing or even insignificant issues as a woman using make-up.
The ISIS penal code that is strictly imposed across Syrian and Iraqi territories controlled by the Islamic State was recently released in print as an official ISIS circular in Syria's Aleppo province.
Since then several ISIS followers and supporters have shared it widely on social media platforms and other online forums.
The penal code under the Sharia law lists the "offences and punishments" imposed for a selection of crimes against Islam and society in general.
