Re: “Jail limits religion, lawsuit suggests” (9-23).

This lawsuit is absurd. These men were convicted of second-degree murder.

They say that they are being unfairly treated as Muslims. As I read it, as per Muslim law, they should be killed the same way that they killed others.

They want to be treated as Muslims? Treat them as Muslims as per the Koran: “It is permissible to slay the murderer the same way he slew his victim(s), or to punish the aggressor the same way he violated his victim:”
