Chapter Summary

This chapter presents the Act of Majlis-e-Shoora (Parliament), which received the assent of the President on 10 April 1997. It describes the punishment of qatl-i-amd and discusses cases in which qisas for qatl-i-amd shall not be enforced. Whoever, with intent to cause harm to the body or mind of any person, causes the death of that or of any other person by means of a weapon or an act which in the ordinary course of nature is not likely to cause death, is said to commit qatl shibh-i-amd. The chapter explains the punishment for qatl-i-khata and qatl-bis-sabab. Whoever commits qatl-bis-sabab shall be liable to diyat. The arsh for causing itlaf of an organ which is found singly in a human body shall be equivalent to the value of diyat.
