But that poor man was just following a hadith of sar tan se judah narrated by no other than Hazrat Ali r.a. He didn't read any hadith that "Punishment is a State affair and need a formal deliberation from state authorized Jurists and scholars" because AFAIK such a hadith does not existMan, do you have some reading and comprehension issues? Didn't I say that act of Punishment is a State affair and need a formal deliberation from state authorized Jurists and scholars. Individuals can't take any law in their own hand or kill a person under any allegations.
(I'm not claiming I've read all the hadith, can't blame me there because the last time I checked there are over 50 hadith books and many of them consisting of many volumes. Not even counting the shia hadith books.)
So how do you resolve this situation?
