Round 1
Con
#1
All four major madhabs (Islamic schools of thought) agree that execution is the punishment for apostasy.
I am quoting directly from IslamQA which in turn quotes the Hadith:
>The evidence that the apostate is to be executed is the words of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him): “Whoever changes his religion, execute him.” (Narrated by al-Bukhari, 2794) What is meant by religion here is Islam (i.e., whoever changes from Islam to another religion).
