Following the implementation of the Qisas and Diyat laws, crimes against the human body are no longer regarded as crimes against society or state, but rather crimes against an individual. As a result, even after committing terrible and horrible crimes such as murder, perpetrators can go free if these persons so choose. The sections of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC), 1860, relating to Qisas (retribution) and Diyat (blood money) are once again being debated on a national and international basis. These clauses have come to light as a result of the pardon granted by the legal heirs of a deceased young man in the famous Shahzaib murder case in Karachi.
