Mahmoud Hashemi Shahroudi
Ayatollah Shahroudi is best known for ordering a moratorium on stoning as a form of the death penalty. However later it was shown that executions by stoning are still being carried out, in spite of his claims that they have stopped. Stoning is still happening inside prisons, where the public cannot see it..
