Mr. Adnan Oktar has said that death penalty would be a salvation for child abusers and that life imprisonment would instead be a better punishment for them but that education was actually the most important factor.
Columnist Engin Ardıç wrote an article about life imprisonment sentence for child murder cases, saying that life imprisonment would be better than death penalty.

(A message asking, “Would the death penalty be a deterrent punishment to prevent child abductions?”)
ADNAN OKTAR: These are psychopaths. They could very well want to be hung. We are talking about a man who crushes a child’s head with a stone. They are mad. He could say, “Hang me.” He would get away with it. Killing them is not the solution. We need to stop Darwinist-materialist education. We need to teach people love of Allah and fear of Allah. We need to teach people love of human beings. Children are like angels. They are very sweet. But these men are loveless, cruel, merciless and violent. They could very well rot in prison but with the death penalty, they will not be there forever. They would accept that. Sometimes they resist the police and shoot themselves. They are reckless. Life imprisonment is actually a perfect punishment but it would be cruel to let these people get away with it.

ADNAN OKTAR: Death penalty is a salvation for an immoral person. For example, think of someone who raped and killed a child. They say, “We will hang you.” Such a man would enjoy it. He is a psychopath; they are already suicidal. If you hang him, he will like that. It is a salvation for him. So he must be sentenced to life imprisonment. He must be in pain for that crime all his life.
But what are we to say to those who provide Darwinist-materialist education? What are we to say to those who educated him like that? If you did not educate him with a Darwinist-materialist education system and tell him about the miracles of the Qur’an and the scientific facts, which prove creation, would this man have become a psychopath? You say, “Your ancestors came from mud. You are a coincidental monkey.” Then people ask, “How did this man become a pervert? How did this man become a communist or a member of the PKK terror organization?” It is very clear. This is what happens when people don't fear Allah.
