Qaradawi: "If they had gotten rid of the apostasy punishment Islam wouldn't exist today"

Muhammad said: "Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him" (Bukhari 9.84.57). The death penalty for apostasy is part of Islamic law according to all the schools of Islamic jurisprudence. Yet Muslim spokesmen such as  Harris Zafar,  Mustafa Akyol,  Salam al-Marayati,  M. Cherif Bassiouni, and  Ali Eteraz (among many others) have assured us that Islam doesn't punish apostasy. I expect that Zafar, Akyol, al-Marayati, Bassiouni, and Eteraz will immediately be in communication with Qaradawi, to explain to him that he is getting Islam all wrong, wrong, wrong.
