Bangladesh is set to allow the death penalty for convicted rapists after weeks of protests over sexual violence in the country.

Bangladesh's Cabinet on Monday approved an amendment changing the maximum punishment for convicted rapists from life imprisonment to death, according to state-run news agency Bangladesh Sangbad Sangstha (BSS).

The new provision will go into effect once it is signed by Bangladeshi President Abdul Hamid. The step is considered a formality.

"Surely (the law) will be a deterrent to such notorious crimes while we simultaneously will make all-out efforts to expedite the trial process of rape cases in the relevant courts," Law Minister Anisul Huq said, according to BSS.

Rape is bad, and it is good Muslim countries may be starting to recognise this more.

The death penalty is also bad, however.

So much for the "evolving standards of decency" excuse that SCOTUS has used to justify it legislating from the bench in 8th Amendment cases.

The death penalty is bad, obviously I understand the emotional attraction but you should never dole out a punishment that can't be commuted if the person convicted is found to have not committed the crime.
